Pros:Very Light, Compact, Unexpected Sharpness, Surprisingly Fast Af
Opinion:Taken to complete the superlight travel kit, 11mm TTArtisan, 16-50 Vr, and 50-250 Vr... quiet I also have the Z6_2 with top optics .. But I really liked the idea of always shooting and cmq and being invisible to everyone at the same time. In fact, the 50-250 is really small both closed and open, only 400 gr, it stretches a little, but not like the other confreres, its "alterego" is the 70-300 AF-P 4.5 / 5.6, 680 gr, it is really an absolute champion as a type of focal on FX DSLR, the other dx and fx (tried in the past) I do not consider them. In Fact the little Z fights well .. but loses the comparison because only Right, is sharp at full aperture, well balanced colors .. always and to all focal points .. while it loses something, but very little, at 250mm at the extreme edges, but always maintaining an excellent feeling of sharpness precisely at a very wide center. A feature that escapes us, however, is that the native Z optics are faster, better correct and when you go to observe the files your expression will be .. Wow.. where do these images come from ?... from this plastic perspective ? .. SUPREMACY Z..... The same 70-300 AF-P mentioned above, certainly gives something more in sharpness, but on Z it loses in AF speed with the FTZ and loses something in the automatic detection of the eyes, and the images, sometimes and strangely, are kneaded. So for now I will use the small 50-250 on the Z50 because it really makes me have fun !! (We await cmq great things for the next few months always in Z).
Pros:Lightweight, great stabilization, super fast autofocus, good image quality
Cons:Plasticoso, at 250mm the subject loses depth and "crushes in the scene"
Opinion:Excellent optics compared to the price class. I bought it with a lot of mental reservations. I don't like zooms, let alone this kind of telephoto lens. I bought it on the advice of juza photo users and I have to say that I had to review all my prejudices about this type of optics. I took it to take portraits of my two children, to be able to chase them from afar and catch them in "natural" poses while they enjoy playing. Those who have children know that if you try to photograph them closely they will not stand still even 2 seconds and if you manage to block them for more than a second they will take on strange fake poses, with unlikely smiles and faces deformed by a grimace imitating cartoons. As soon as I arrived I did tests at different focal points and various openings, in the garden to plants. I was expecting the classic "beach holiday" zoom good just to photograph the turo seagull from the deckchairs under the August sun at noon. But it was a pleasant discovery. The photos taken were taken on purpose with a faint late January sun half an hour before sunset in the shaded area. Also tested at 7.30 am on a rainy day. Result? More than great for the price paid! The photos are sharp, well contrasted and not at all dark indeed the raw that come out are of excellent quality. At the end of the opening there is also a decent blurry (certainly not comparable to a fixed lens but still superior to other zooms in the same category). In addition, it is very light, perfectly respects the logic of the z series (excellent performance and minimum clutter). Up to 125 mm the subject maintains an accentuated olto three-dimensionality but at the maximum focal at 250mm the subject loses depth and "crushes in the scene" but this is a defect of all very long focals. If you need a zoom for dynamic shooting situations where you can't get close to the subject, it's ideal. It costs little (new around 400 euros but refurbished guaranteed Nital or used RCE is located at 300), has an excellent yield, it is light. At this price there is nothing better. To then level up you have to spend a lot more money, and unless you have to do special work where you need a diaphragm at 2.8 (like weddings) this zoom is ideal for most situations (Photojournalism, Nature, portraits, sports, etc.). Recommended! I allege test photos (without creative value) to different openings and focals to evaluate their image quality I uploaded some similar photos (same subject and composition) to different diaphragms just to show how the lens behaves It was considerably higher than my expectations!
Pros:light, great VR, fast autofocus, photo quality compared to the optical class.
Cons:fragile, much plastic use (including attachment).
Opinion:I have been using this lens for over a month bought in kits with the Z50. The first impression is of a lens "Made in China" (although it is made in Taiwan) with so much (perhaps too much) use of plastic, including attack. All understandable if for a few thousand euros you buy the Z50 with 2 goals (16-50 and 50-250) and a 64GB SD card, but an extra effort the Nikon could also do (at least the metal attack). Very light and if this is good in some ways denotes a kind of fragility as the plastic does not withstand shocks like an alloy or metal optics, albeit heavier. However, apart from these considerations, the 50-250 DX for Z Mount does its job well. Excellent photo quality of an entry-level optics (kit) that does not disfigure compared to the other Z-Mount optics of the "S-Line" series and in some respects, it is also superior to the entry-level Zoom F-Mount as an AF-S 55-200 or an AF-P 70-300 f/6.3 not stabilized. Great VR that turns on/off through the camera (absent the stick on the lens). Perfect for a first approach to naturalistic photography (it's like having a 75-375mm in the FX format) or for those who travel and need, using Z cameras, a very light optics.
