There are a lot of photo/video cameras that have found a role as B-cameras on professional productions or A-camera for amateur and independent productions. In our latest buying guide we've selected some cameras that might be a bit older but still offer a lot of bang for the buck. I think they tried to keep the same basic layout as the D5000/D3000 series so that those users would feel more comfortable with the layout if/when they move to the Z50. @ Dragonrider. So these Nikons are not slow compared to the competition. Portrait Lens For Nikon Z50. So far, everything Nikon has done seems great, and it really is. But again, this was done for marketing reasons is my guess, and to perhaps entice people to upgrade if and when an IBIS-enabled APS-C body is released. Unfortunate that all that Nikon pro lenses do not have lens-stabilization ;). With a manual zoom, I can go straight to 35mm. Built in flash.Bad: Another battery type? https://camerasize.com/compact/#834,777,809,816,829,ha,t. $1,149.00. I do this all the time with my Sony APS-C mirrorless lenses when I use them on my Sony FF mirrorless body. The two Z mount DX lenses launched with the camera, the Nikon Z DX 16-50mm VR and the Nikon Z DX 50-250mm VR are both attractive choices for those who want to keep their camera kit small and lightweight, but for those who want more lens options, there are plenty of excellent Z-mount full-frame lenses already available, as well as older Nikon F lenses (both DX and FX) using the FTZ adapter. If they really intended the Z50 to be a transition body then have both would have been the way to go. The 65mm T2 completes Vazen's set of anamorphic lenses for the Micro Four Thirds system. Planning to treat yourself to a new full-frame camera this holiday season? It is the lightest and smallest in Nikon’s enthusiast line. Take a closer look. These capable cameras should be solid and well-built, have both speed and focus for capturing fast action and offer professional-level image quality. Not everyone will be using them, especially initially, and will be adapting their F-mount glass which does not have this spare ring, which is what I'm getting at. The “DISP” button is another one that has been moved to the LCD, which I personally don’t mind either, as I do not use it very often. It's not as difficult because of the Z-mount. @Niko Vita, a Perhaps a better way of stating this would have been something like "...the 16-50 is what seals the deal for me." But it's stupid not to allow Canon users to use the lenses they have. I put together a summary table below that highlights the key differences between these cameras: As you can see from the above table, the Nikon Z50 has pretty fierce competition at similar price points. The 50, 105 and 150-500 are all (AFAIK) full frame so you'll have a few options. It just looks like they've learned some lessons from the mirrorless competition to me. :) I should have said 'deal maker'. Lenses which don't benefit at all from the wide throat or short flange-focal like the 50mm f1.8S and 85mm f1.8s are stunningly sharp. I was going to make a "rant" post in the forums about this very topic. A proper aperture ring on an f3.5-6.3 aperture would be kind of a nightmare. I think the DPR review called it really sharp, etc., but that's ridiculous. Image stabilisation. The Canon RF 800mm F11's unique combination of telephoto reach, affordability and light weight will likely enable even more people to do the same. People buying an entry level camera don't want their only kit-lens option to be a PZ like it was with the V3. All the DX kit lenses from Nikon I believe are plastic, so you are partially correct. People may not want PZ but that's because they don't know what they're doing. Gee people. Review: Does the Canon Rebel T8i DSLR make sense in an increasingly mirrorless world? https://camerasize.com/compact/#535.580,684.305.2,535.410,ha,t. As to better photographs, good photographers can take good photographs with almost anything. At the Z50 price point, though, you don't find much with sensor-VR/IS, so I suspect Nikon made this decision by the usual bean-counting way (e.g. Lacking the upper status screen included on the Z6 and Z7, the biggest control on the top of the Z50 is a large, non-locking exposure mode dial. The front Grip is Masterful and it does not have an annoyingly stupid "selfie Flip out" type of screen that makes the camera 23 inches wide when you flip it out. So you're stuck with a bad manual zoom shot in your video. Nice slow lenses there...I'll bet the competition takes all of the DX market share mirrorless wise also with these offerings. @Dragonrider - "I fail to see what you gained.". So there certainly is benefit there given that 35mm equiv and shorter are very popular and important lengths. View our sample gallery to see how a bit of shift can change a photo or introduce creative effects. You skip the kit lens and just pickup the body for $860, pickup the 24-70 F4 for $1000 and for $60 more than the Z6 body you are into the new Z-series system. Maybe out east it will be a big hit? Nikon 50mm F1.8 The best portrait lens for Nikon Z50 is still Nikon â¦ It really seams to me that the body size and design is aimed at higher price point, more like a competitor to the Fuji X-T3. @LGO:I guess i will have to see a bunch more photos shot by the 85mm f1.8S because i haven't seen it make cream yet. @T3. The only thing the person needs to be aware of is the crop factor when purchasing and using FF glass on their APS-C/DX bodies, but that isn't anything new, and applies to all crop-sensor cameras shooting FF glass (the crop factor obviously can differ from mfr to mfr). That's not the case with Nikon's and Sony's mirrorless systems where there is total cross compatibility between APS-C and FF. A personal thing of course but I wouldn't buy a camera with a fully articulated one. What goes? Considering how small the Z50 is, it would have been tough to fit an LCD screen on the top of the body without compromises, so I personally do not consider it to be a huge negative. But as the above replies show, Nikon needs to add a "footless" one. that 16-50 looks like a nice compact thing - similar to the 12-32 that exists for µ43. But it will add 135 grams to the overall weight and about 80 mm to the length of the lens, which partly negates the advantages of the smaller, lighter camera body. ), but I'd rather have a 16-50mm f1.8-2.8 or even f2.8-4. It comes as many different kits at B&H (I actually got the kit with both the 16-50mm and 50-250mm lenses), at Adorama, at Amazon and â¦ BTW the portability market is bigger than the enthusiast market and that is the reason why the M series outsells even Sony in many geographical areas. It's 2019. No IBIS is silly too. A me piace. Also keep in mind that IBIS is really effective for shorter FLs, and once you start getting into the telephoto range IBIS is much less effective. The manual zoom ring is a nice feature. I disagree with you on the multi-angle screens though, I much prefer the simple tilt ones. Yes, you can get it as a kit lens, but for $400, while the XC15-45mm cost $100 in a kit, which is similar the Nikon 16-50mm for $150. When shooting with the Z50 on a tripod, there is no way to turn off information overlay (such as aperture, shutter speed, and ISO), no matter how many times you toggle between different display options. The DX-format camera can use both types of lenses (DX and FX) since the non-DX lens image circle is larger than needed on a DX-format camera. On an FX-format camera with a DX lens mounted, the camera will automatically engage its built-in DX crop mode, thus recording an image only from the center section of the sensor. I fail to see what you gained. Earlier this week we published our samples from the new Sigma 65mm F2 DG DN when mounted on a Sony body. This could be either basic, or including a control ring (adjustable for exposure comp, aperture, or whatever). And of course, the XF18-55 is vastly bigger as well. The Fuji XF lenses are indeed superior to the XC versions, not just in speed and build quality but in IQ, specifically in terms of the richness of the contrast. It was a 'do it all' lens too though with macro & optional power zoom for video. You have full frame lenses so you can easily move to the Z6 or Z7. Several years from now, new users won't even know what a "traditional DSLR" is, except that it was something that their dad or grandfather used to use! Yet it creates utterly gorgeous wedding, portrait, atmospheric photos. It's just easier to do with a manual zoom where you can very easily nudge it just a mm or two. Sweet indoor sports/event lens though. Have a great weekend, bro. But they're letting you assign a function on the lenses themselves. One of the rings are assignable. My guess it the EF-M. With the exception of the 22 F2 and the 32 F1.4 M mount lenses are mediocre at best. Not sure who it's aimed at to be honest, I guess Nikon must have done some market research. It's very hard for people who want to get a specific FL to do it with a PZ without a zoom scale to judge. As to the FX lenses on DX bodies, it depends on the event or situation. That might be useful if you are expecting an 8mm f/1 APS-C Z mount lens to emerge from Nikon, but I wouldn't hold my breath while waiting. The 200mm f2 bokeh can get a little chunky too, but its backgrounds are usually so blown out that there's no chance of detail. Even at f1.8. or "I'm sold on this kit because..." Then it's obvious to people that you like it. Once â¦ Pre-Order Links: Nikon Z50, New Lenses, Battery Pack, Z6 II vs. Z7 II – advice on which one better for enthusiast level, To watermark or not to watermark on prints, 4K No crop in 24p / 25p, 1.2x crop at 30p, Viewfinder Type / Coverage: 2.36-million dot OLED EVF / 100%, Viewfinder Magnification: 1.02× (0.67× FF equivalent), Shutter Speed Range: 1/4000 to 30 seconds, Exposure Metering Sensor: TTL exposure metering using main image sensor, Video Maximum Resolution: 4K up to 30 FPS (No Crop), 1080p up to 120 FPS, LCD Size, Type and Resolution: 3.2″ Tilt-down 1,040,000-dot Touchscreen LCD, Dimensions: 126.5 × 93.5 × 60 mm (5.0 × 3.7 × 2.4 in). However, when compared to the higher-end Nikon D7500, the Z50 shows some weaknesses. So just like Nikon had a whole line of DX and FX DSLR bodies and lenses, so too will Nikon have a whole line of DX and FX mirrorless bodies, with total cross-compatibility between them. When they release a version with IBIS, AND make it available with some moderately good little lenses, then it would be a great vacation package. So pour a tall cold one and get ready to treat yourself, 2020 style. Both are very compact for their focal range, particularly when in their unextended travel position. It is also unfortunate that the kit lens for the Z50, the 16-50mm DX, is an f/3.5-6.3 aperture lens. Agree about the no IBIS. And being a mirrorless camera, it has some features like Eye AF, Focus Peaking and other useful on-screen information overlays that are not found on any of the above DSLRs. Both are very compact for their focal range, particularly when in their unextended travel position. Maybe it's got nice IQ (what lens doesn't between f3.5 and f6.3? I have read a lot about using old DX lenses with the FTZ converter but is there any way to find out if my lenses will work with the converter? - which makes sense from a business standpoint - but, then, why should I want one? Agreed. Amen to that, and also useful for the existing Z's for those of us that have tripods and non-arcaswiss plates. use tripod when possible/feasible, or if you must, higher ISOs or bracing your arms for stability, etc). Thinking I had broke the mount on the camera or adapter I gave up and went back to using my 24-70 f/4, only to realize later that it was caused by the tripod plate on the bottom of the FTZ which was hitting the bottom of the camera and wouldn't let it rotate into the locking position. The Nikon 50-250 is as big or bigger than traditional SLR dx zooms in the same range. The f1.8 versions are the sharp general purpose lenses, and the f1.4 (now f1.2...) versions are the wedding/portrait lenses. If you're looking for a high-quality camera, you don't need to spend a ton of cash, nor do you need to buy the latest and greatest new product on the market. Nikone has made sure that it's APS-C users have a wait to upgrade, just as they did with the DSLRs and F-mount glass. So you'll never be able to mount any RF lens on any EOS M body. The R, for me at least, just muddied the waters. A detailed list of camera specifications is available at NikonUSA.com. To your point though about the kit lenses. It does not seem especially unique or special, and has but two basic lenses. I guess not.... Not everyone who may buy this camera will have a Z lens. I guess it only works when shooting selfies handheld! Photokina has announced via a press release that after 70 years of shows in Cologne, Germany, it will be indefinitely suspended due to 'decreases in the imaging market’ that have ‘force[d] a hard cut.’. I'm sure it's something that could be implemented via firmware but again, I don't foresee it happening. It wouldn't necessarily be pretty or yield the best results, but it can be done. Note that EF lenses work just fine on both M and R bodies with an adapter. With its price point of $860 MSRP, it competes head-to-head with other mirrorless options on the market such as the Sony A6400, Fuji X-T30, and Canon EOS M6 Mark II. Sorry that some people nitpick here but keep in mind some people also take things literally as they are typed just to be obnoxious. And frankly, the results look great. A simple lever allows for quick switching between still and movie capture modes. The Sony 16-50mm while 1/3 faster on the long end is particularly bad. For Nikon to simply say - "Here's the one and only FTZ adaptor" - and to present us with one with a non-removable foot - well, it shows an amazing lack in imagining what its customers want! Do you know what a “ deal breaker” means? It is a pain in the rear end to do this every time, so I am still hopeful that this issue is going to be addressed someday…. Where the competition truly stands out is in autofocus performance – Nikon’s first generation autofocus system on the Z50 is relatively weak when compared to Sony’s refined AF system. It is possible to shoot in tough situations without IBIS and OIS. I think Nikon made a smart move with the Z50. Deal Breaker generally means you don't like something for one or more reasons. not paying attention to shutter speed in low light). No IBIS is a real bummer it is easier to make it for the smaller sensor... look what Panasonic offer for a lot less with the G80-85. @T3:Nothing Sony shoots ever looks good so your entire argument is moot. Ideal for travel. I'd try to point out how you're objectively wrong but your posting history makes that unnecessary. It sports the latest and the fastest EXPEED 6 processor. What I gained is obvious. My workaround with the Z50 so far has been the same as with the Nikon Z6 and Z7 cameras. That's a case of manufacturers not knowing anything since they can't even think of something so obvious. Agreed ... these SLOWWWWW DX lenses are a joke.I'll just keep using my good old DX DSLR until Nikon puts out more useful lenses for Z format DX cameras. The Laowa 15mm F4.5 Zero-D Shift lens lets you shift perspective without moving the camera, correct for converging lines and more. $13.99. Conversely, the dirty little secret of creamy/dreamy bokeh is the PRESENCE of spherochromatism. The grip practically looks like Nikon took their calipers to the Olympus... No it's more like Nikon ripped a grip of their D3500 and glued it to the Z50. He is recognized as one of the leading educators in the photography industry, conducting workshops, producing educational videos and frequently writing content for Photography Life. @Dragonrider. I'd also get it at Adorama, at Amazon or at Crutchfield. So there is a reason. Your camera, your style. @T3I've spotted plenty of DX users out there and almost all of them used DX lenses. Add the 85 1.8 Z at $800 and for the cost of the Z6 Kit with the 24-70 you have a nice foundation into the Z-series. Pair the Z 50 with the NIKKOR Z DX 16-50mm f/3.5-6.3 VR or NIKKOR Z DX 50-250mm f/4.5-6.3 VR to effectively reduce camera shake as both lenses come with dual detect optical vibration reduction which means every image will be sharper than ever. The NIKKOR 50-250mm features a built-in VR stabilization motor and is relatively compact with a total length of 110mm (collapsed) for a weight of 405 grams. Given the negative tone in DPR's articles on the Z50 which I have not seen done with other cameras plus the outright incorrect information on the 4k crop, I can't help but think the same. Near enough to identical in size to the Olympus E-M1 II flagship, interestingly enough. I had to troll the troll! Sporting a 20.9 MP DX sensor, fast phase-detection autofocus system, 11 FPS continuous shooting speed, ability to record high-quality 4K video at up to 30 FPS without any crop (Full HD slow motion at up to 120 FPS) and a compact, lightweight construction with great body build and ergonomics, the Nikon Z50 is certainly a serious camera to consider for new and existing Nikon shooters. I bought this to replace my aging Sony A6000 and I am pleasantly surprised with the degree of upgrade it makes. Best of all, you can get this lens now, as opposed to years down the line (who knows when?) You are looking at this from an enthusiast perspective and ignoring the actual market for the M series which is all about portability. The lenses will fit, but they won't illuminate the sensor past APS-C, so what did you gain. After trying it, the AF was better than i expected, but still not really close to what i need. @Michael. That part has not changed. Even F-Mount DX is a threat to the Z50, haha! I was on a shoot once (and it was the end of the day and I was tired) and I couldn't get the FTZ to lock. Today, Nikon Inc. announced the next Z series mirrorless camera, the DX-format Nikon Z 50, along with two new companion NIKKOR Z lenses, the NIKKOR Z DX 16-50mm f/3.5-6.3 VR and NIKKOR Z DX 50-250mm f/4.5-6.3 VR. OTOH, I can put a speed booster on my M5 with an EF 50mm f/1.4 a nd presto I have a 35mm f/1 lens. The mount made it larger than the others. No reason at all for it to be empty. They could also do a variation of what I mentioned--maybe not a removable collar but one that rotates so you can rotate it up 180 degrees for hand held uses.
