Pros: Build quality, no ftz adapter used that unbalances the mirrorless

Cons: Price and size (and more that you will find in the review)

Opinion: I start with the premise that now nikon is focusing on the z system and I am not at all with this lens, they cost more and for me they are mediocre compared to the f-mount bayonet. I report when it appears on Nikon's website: "Bayonet 17% wider, Thanks to the diameter of 55 mm, it is the widest full-frame bayonet on any camera system, offering enhanced features: greater light acquisition .." Bought nital out of curiosity in July 2020 at 450, I used it twice for portrait photo sessions, promptly put it back in the closet until August 2022 when I resold it as new. Advantages: to the touch it turns out a good quality in construction (much better than the afs series). Disadvantages everything else and in particular does not have those magical colors compared to the 1.4 despite this extra light that nikon says it lets in. Excessive size in itself compared to f mount (afs). Using the ftz adapter unbalances my z6, but right now I prefer to use afs aperture 1.4 lenses. Today I think that in the face of the few optics that there are (for I tried 28 2.8, 35 1.8 and 50 1.8) it is not worth selling f mount and buying z mount again. Spending over 600 euros for the 50mm 1.8 nital new, since prices have also increased for me is crazy when with 250 you take afs 1.8 and afs 499 1.4 and with less than 150 you take home used 1.8 and 250 1.4 (like the new 1.8). Nikon a case of the series is uncomfortable and you risk that taking the optics badly falls to the ground, design it better. Rating: 5

Pros: Great goal

Cons: It's not really a compact goal, but given the level of construction it's not a big deal. A bit expensive to be a fifty f1.8, but it deserves the money it costs.

Opinion: On Full Frame it is the classic 50mm normal lens. At one time, when zooms were not yet fashionable, the 50mm was sold in kits with film mechanical bodies. The lens in question is an excellent lens, very sharp, light but robust, with an excellent blur. Great for portraits and general photography. It is very sharp starting from f1.8 included. It can be used at all openings. Maybe one of the best 50 mm nikkor f1.8 ever produced (I had an AI f1.8, an AF f1.8, an AFD f1.4, but this is perhaps the top in the f1.8 brightness range).

Pros: All

Cons: The price of the new (like all Z's)

Opinion: A blade. Large optics, used on Z6II. Beautiful portraits. Sharpness to the maximum. Af that works well. Surely it is not a "very light" lens from mr, but it's okay anyway! Nikon quality 2020s, good stuff! Socket used by Amazon Warehouse for 300 € was a great deal (in the ad they said "scratched edge"... but the lens is immaculate!).

Pros: Sharpness, smooth rendering from center to edge, construction, blurry, AF fast and accurate enough

Cons: generous dimensions, manual focus difficult to manage intuitively, non-standard filters for a 50mm/f/1.8

Opinion: Used first as a portrait lens on a Z50, then as a handyman lens on a Z6II. It impresses with full-aperture sharpness both in the center and at the edges. I also use it for astrophotography and in this field it surpasses all the 50mm Nikon previously tested (AF-D 50mm f/1.4, AF-S 50mm f/1.4G, AF-S 50mm f/1.8G). Fast AF, not very fast, but accurate. Excellent resistance to flare and reflections. Transition from blurry to the pleasant and pasty focusing plane, while showing excellent sharpness, which is not always easy to find in hyper sharp optics. Vignetting under control and in any case eliminable in post-production. I found two unsuccessful aspects, the first the choice to combine it with a generous filter thread, but not justifiable by the size of the front lens that is still small, so much so that with a stepdown ring and normal 52mm filters it does not vignette at all, indeed I saw that it does not vignette even with 48mm filters!. The second aspect instead is endemic in the Z optical system and I think it concerns only me (!): I find little feeling with manual focus just when I use it for astrophotography and you need to move the focus infinitesimally, you risk I have to exceed or not move the focus at all, especially when you work in the cold and with gloves, and it's a shame because the large focus ring lends itself very well to be operated in any situation. That said, the build quality is excellent. I don't particularly like the 50mm focal length on full frame, but this lens made me reconsider it

Pros: Everything Except Price

Cons: The price

Opinion: Taken used with 4 years of residual warranty, in May of 2021 (I managed to save 50 eur). I have been using it for 6 months with my z50 (APS-C) as a portrait lens (my favorite genre). Worth all the money spent. Since I have it, it is always in my backpack and there is not a single day that I do not shoot with this lens. Churn out great pictures! => Very GOOD Construction It conveys the impression of great solidity and robustness a definitely "premium" optics. => more than excellent optical quality, Great sharpness already at TA, absence of aberrations, resistance to flare. Like all Z optics it has a great resolution. A LAMA = > Bokeh good, maybe a little nervous (certainly on a FF makes better) and not very pasty. Compared to the classic vintage optics I have it is perhaps too sharp. Anyway I find the Bokeh really enjoyable. Just enough. Neither too exaggerated (soft) to become unmanageable nor too sharp to have to resort to PP. =>AF is very fast and silent = > Excellent versatility. it is a right perspective, with which you can really do all kinds of photos, Portrait, portrait set, street landscape etc. In summary: It is a really PRO perspective, very balanced and precise. You really do everything with it. I would buy it again with my eyes closed. Like all the other products of the z series that I have (as indeed from all the reviews read and listened to), it is balanced, has excellent performance and a VERY favorable value for money. I'm very glad I took it ! ?
