Nikon NIKKOR Z 24-50mm f/4-6.3 Reviews
It is what it is.
You can use this solid lens on a Z50 or a Z fc as a 36 to 75 zoom, where the interior of the large image circle performs quite well on dx compared to the 16-50 pancake lens. You won't have to worry about fuzzy corners with the crop sensor. Other pros include small size, relatively light, & not terribly expensive. The flip side: 2X zoom range seems low & the lens does not let in much light. But, you can still make good pictures with it; I liked the color and sharpness.
An okay lens
Didn't have the money to get the lens I wanted. I had to upgrade my camera and my lenses don't fit the new camera without the attachment. So I settled for this lens. So far it works good for studio work and outdoors. Idk how it will do for concerts that I shoot for a magazine. Guess I will soon see.
It's tolerable but...
First, the Z 24-50mm is the lightest Z lens without a doubt. That's why I ordered it. With the UV filter that B&H throws it, it weights 7.3 oz without both lens caps on my scale. The combined weight of my Z6 II and the lens is at 2 lb, which is the lightest weight I'll ever get for my Z6 II setup. Is this good or bad? It really depends on your use. If you use Z6II for Vlog, this lens can be a great asset since you can carry 2 lb rig much more easily than a 3 or 4 lb rig. I tried it with a Gorilla tripod, which is great. For me, I ordered it for travel light, particularly for street photography, hopefully in a less ostentatious fashion. Traveling light, yes. But, it's not the lens for grabbing less attention, because the lens is bit long for street photography once it's out of its garage. People had been asked me a number of times whether or not I was taking pictures of them. Perhaps my choice of camera and lens is not suitable for street photography, my own fault. Just like the F-mount DX 18-55mm kit lens, this FX 24-50mm also produces sharp images with nice contrast and color. The AF speed is as good as any other Z lens as long as you have good night. In low light, my Z6 II updated with the latest firmware, the lens struggles with AF (AF-S Single Point) quite considerably. At wide open, the corners are a bit soft with heavy vignette, which is expected. For me, I normally shoot between f/8 and f/11 for street photography, so that's a problem. For the pricing, it's the most affordable Z lens, but I still think $400 is bit too much for such a lens. Perhaps I'd keep it if it was a $200 or $250 lens.
replaces my 50mm, then adds 24mm
Unless you need a wide aperture 50 for bokeh, this 50 is excellent: sharp, fast AF, *AND* it zooms out to 24 for beautiful wide angle shots. Then it collapses into itself for carrying: a wonderful lens on my Z7.
Best general use lens
Good all around
The perfect Z walk around lens!
I'm a big fan of Nikon Z cameras, owning both the Z50 and the Z6ii for which I sold my Z7 to acquire. Wanted that second card slot and don't need 45.6mp. So having used the little Z 16-50 DX pancake lens on BOTH my Z50 and my Z7, and now on my Z6ii, when Nikon announced this FX version of their pancake lens I bought it immediately for my Z6ii. For me, at my 82 years of age, smaller and lighter, AND full-frame are excellent qualities in a lens if the IMAGE quality is there as well, as it is on my DX 16-50mm and DX 50-250mm lenses. And I find the IQ on this new full-frame lens to also be excellent. So I highly recommend all three of these Z lenses. Here's a highly cropped shot I took yesterday of our miniature Golden Doodle, Jazz. Shot indoors without flash at ISO 800, 50mm, f/6.3 at 1/60 second hand held.
It works well
Great all purpose lens
Turns my Z6 II into a lightweight all purpose snapshot camera easy to carry for family events.
