  • $4,000 optics for $599
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Robo - May 19, 2020

    This lens is amazing! A lot of people would write it off simply because it’s a f 1.8 but the optics are superb. If you really dig into it you’ll find the MTF charts are very similar to the amazing 55 Ziess Otus but the Nikon is smaller and has AF. The sharpness and contrast on this lens is mind blowing even at 1.8 with very well controlled chromatic aberration. Also there is little to no focus breathing so I also use this lens for video a lot . If you just bought into the Z system or looking at jump into it this lens is a must. It’s the cheapest prime lens available for the system currently but it’s such a huge value when understanding the optical qualities. A lot of professional photographers preach about faster primes but I’ve found that I’m reaching for the Z lenses over any of the Sigma Art and or any of the older F mount lenses in particular this 50mm.

  • Beautiful glass
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Picturesmakelifegreat - December 28, 2021

    Most gorgeous 50mm I’ve ever seen and if this is any indication of the 1.2 prime I can’t wait, I hear my billfold screaming now.

  • A must have
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Bedak - June 20, 2021

    This is fast lens that produces crisp pictures. I mostly take videos and pictures of my grandchildren and I don't find the fixed focal lens much of a constraint. On the other hand having shallow depth of field is wonderful for portraits and videos. Very high quality. The added pictures have been compressed but the dimensions have not been changed.

  • Excellent 50mm lens for z body cameras
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Michaelc - April 9, 2021

    I love this lens. I use it for fashion and regular portraits. I'm very happy with it. It is a much lighter lens than the carrying around a g lens with the f to z adapter. It works excellent with my nikon z6. It's a very versatile lens for taking landscape pictures as well. My only wish is that nikon makes more compact lens. If fuji cameras can do it i don't see why nikon can't.

  • Very nice update
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Clark - March 7, 2020

    First off, yes this is a near flawless lens. For me, when compared to adapter fitted lenes it's autofocus is near silent. There is no vignetting or chromatic abrasion that I can see. It's well constructed but almost too light weight. I have found it odd on most all new Z lenses they are physically larger than the previous generation. Before you start yes I know about the glass refraction distance, however with the larger mount I feel this 50mm could be half the size and still maintain the quality. Overall it's still a great sharp fast lens. In all, I am still am reminiscent for the panache granted by older lenses and that mirrorless in general lack. This 50 is optically fantastic but lacks character.
