Opinion:Taken for portrait use on Z6, the cost is still a bit high compared to the idea of the 50mm but the yield turned out to be absolutely adequate. Resolve and sharpness far greater than seen with the F, weight and volume versions balanced and adapted to the machine body. Honestly there is nothing wrong, the blurry will not be a primacy but it is good and I have not detected problems of color rendering or light/shadow transition. In addition, Meike rings for Z also allow you to take macro-like photos at a very low cost.
Pros:Sharpness, tropicalization, ergonomics, AF, feeling
Opinion:I took it because I wanted a Z light optics to complement the excellent 24-70 F4 S. As already written in the review of the 24-70, I am very happy with the construction quality of these Nikkor Z: minimal design, "premium" feeling (this 50ino conveys a sense of solidity decidedly superior to the aforementioned zoom), excellent tropicalization. In addition, the optical quality is remarkable: monstrous sharpness already at TA and on the entire frame, absence of aberrations, color rendering, flare resistance. There is also the downside: such a complex optical design affects the bokeh, the tonal passages and the microcontrasto. Compared to the Zeiss optics that I continue to adore (especially those of the Classic/Milvus line, based on the old Planar, Distagon etc.) designs, it is decidedly more resolute and free of aberrations, MA has a more nervous bokeh and a three-dimensionality in the lower yield. Nonetheless, I find the bokeh still pleasant and superior to 50 art (which I find too hard), and in any case the final results are fantastic. It is a native Z optics and you can see it ... the IBIS works at full capacity (up to 5 stops), the AF is lightning fast, the integration with the machine body is absolute. I don't like the electronically controlled manual MAF, but except for the very expensive Noct (by the way af-free), all Z optics are like that. To the ring (metal, unlike the 24-70 which is rubber) I assigned the exposure compensation, but in my opinion the answer is too sensitive. In my opinion, it is the ideal lens to combine with the 24-70 F4 (and possibly the 14-30), because it is an extremely versatile luminous fixed. I, in the future, point to the trio Z 20 - 35 - 85, but for now I am fully satisfied with the two Z lenses in my possession. In conclusion, I would give a 9.5 to this 50 1.8 S, it will certainly not disappoint you.
Opinion:Taken to replace, after switching to ML, the 50 AFS 1.8; I was impressed by the sharpness, remarkable at all opening, the pleasant blurry, the speed of focus and the absence of aberrations at full opening (at least I could not see them). Excellent backlight hold and light vignetting up to f2;8 Definitely a lens to have in your bag if interested in the focal point. Vote 10
Pros:Impeccable, sharp, light excellent construction
Cons:Don't have it
Opinion:I had so many 50mm from 1.4mm up, but this is really extraordinary, unthinkable sharpness already at 1.8, virtually non-existent aberrations great blurred. I mount it on my Z7 for portraits and it amazes me every time I open the files on lightroom. From justice to the Z7 sensor with incredible resolution. Stra recommended.
Opinion:Today came a thank you to Mr Gabriele of Fotomoderna Siena for having me try and finally buy the optics in question. What to say the difference you see right away , it is not the usual 50 1.8 but much more already at 1.8 compared to the g series is the sharp maximum from fear I had the 50 sigma 1.4 but the impression of this optics at the first shot was magical. I will review this lens calmly and with photos but I repeat at the first catch it is wonderful. Maybe the blurry not homogeneous a little nervous but all in all good ,certainly not at the levels of 85mm.However having the Z6 I am very happy and I think on z7 from 46mega gives the maximum.
