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
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 ! ?
Opinion:Sharp, beautiful blurry, fast, relatively light (but not small). Lens without flaws, perhaps a hair expensive considering the price of the old 50 ini for SLR, but absolutely aligned with the new mirrorless generation. Aesthetics not very successful and apparently cheap as finishes, but in reality it is very resistant.
Opinion:I bought this 50ino a little per game. I've never been a lover of this focal but just tried it didn't make me regret the cost of acqusito. Excellent sharpness, excellent blurry, excellent fast and very precise AFThe weight is not felt and the ergonomics with the Z6 are excellent. The construction is very good, definitely of a different level compared to the 50 AFS 1.8G I had owned with the reflex
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.
