On a Nikon Z 50 how is the aperture controlled. If set manually what are you seeing through the viewfinder or on screen. Is it a dark image?
Asked by: Ivan
The Aperture is only controlled by the aperture ring on the lens. Whether the viewfinder gets dark will depend on how you set "Apply settings to live view" in the Menu.

With the RF version of the lens, two questions: 1) Does the aperture stay open until the shot is taken like the old cameras? i.e. is the view finder going to be dark? 2) If I set an aperture of 7.1, for example, does it inform the camera of that setting so the camera can figure out the proper exposure?
Asked by: Perry
There is no communication between camera and lens, so you will need to set aperture and shutter speed manually. The viewfinder is blacked out during the exposure.
