Will this lens be compatible with a D500 and a Z50 (using the FTZ)?
Asked by: Edgar
Yes, it will work and you have to set the lens to f/16 to allow the camera to control the aperture. That is why f/16 on the aperture ring is orange. It will of course be manual focus.

Dows this lens work with apsc sensors?
Asked by: Gerry
Yes, the ZEISS Classic lenses will work with cameras using different sensor sizes, including APS-C. Keep in mind, the smaller APS-C sensor size has the effect of 'cropping' the image by a factor of 1.5x - 1.6x depending on the exact size of the sensor (it varies by manufacturer).

When using this lens on a Canon Eos R does the focus assist (the aligning of guidelines, not the focus peaking) work?
