    Light, Sharp, and Reasonably Priced

    Posted by JA on September 26, 2021

    While its plastic feel doesn't lend an air of confidence, this lens more than makes up for it by its performance. It's sharp nearly edge to edge wide open. It focuses quickly. And it's quite reasonably priced. It's a wonderful lens for the Z fc, Z 5, and Z 50 owners.

    One of the best lenses I own. Clear images, light weight great for all around photography. The pancake feature is unique and useful.

    Small but powerful!

    Posted by PenTurner on February 27, 2020

    Many larger lenses do not possess the quality of this little giant. Sharp color photos in bright sun or in low light.. No matter if you are shooting video or portaits you will get clean crisp pictures with this lens. Makes your camera very compact for travel. I use mine on the new Z50 and love every feature.

    Great walk around lens

    Posted by TonyLo on February 27, 2020

    I use this lens with my Z6. The combination of this lens and camera give me a very lightweight and compact camera with excellent results. I was originally thinking about buying a new lightweight camera for street photography and walking around but this combo does it all. I highly recommend it.

    Z50 16-50 mm lens

    Posted by Bigmo on February 26, 2020

    Construction wise it seems cheaply made, however some plastics today are very tuff. Time will tell. Size is very unique and practical and makes it a great carry around lens. Sharp in good light but the 6.3 makes it poor for low light even though the Z50 body does very good at higher iso. All said for the money it´s a pretty good lens for a kit lens. Hope all future lenses don´t fall in. The f 4 and 6.3 , sort of negates the camera bodies gains in higher iso.

    Compact and sharp

    Posted by Rpdubya on February 26, 2020

    It seemed too compact to be true, but it´s very sharp and fast focusing. It´s like you´re just shooting with the body.
