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.

Is the RF version really 1.2" longer than the EF version or is that a typo?
Asked by: David
That is more than likely because both lenses are technically identical in design, but the RF flange distance is shorter; hence, the RF-version makes up for this with a longer mount.
