    Light and Fast

    One of the best prime lenses you can own. Great for indoor or outdoor use. Perfect for portraits too. I take it with me wherever I go.

    Very nice and versatile lens

    Posted by Gilbert Wright on July 12, 2023

    I wanted a "nifty fifty" to match with my new Z7ii. Since I have 50mm1.4G in FX, if I need speed I can use that with the FTZ and it's about 1/2 inch longer than this lens. BUT, the Z lens is so comfortable to use and carry. It focuses fast and accurately, is very easy to focus manually and takes beautiful pictures. I chose this one to dabble in macro for the first time. I know an 85 or 105 would be better to get more working distance, but this works excellently. I have really enjoyed the Z7's focus-shift function. Background blur is well rendered. People and pets are nicely done. Overall I don't have a single regret about buying a second lens of the same focal length. Both serve different purposes.

    Beautiful Prime!

    Posted by Tom Tom on June 8, 2023

    This is a lens worthy of the Nikon line. The focus, color rendition, overall performance make it a great lens. It also works as a good Macro lens on my Z7-II for looking at flowers, food, fine print, and circuit boards. It also gets good pictures of lady bugs too :-)

    Focusing with a ring flash is difficult to sustain when shooting vertical

    Posted by paglioli on October 13, 2022

    Lens is amazing. I need some help regarding the use of a Nissin ring flash. It is somehow heavier the the lens motor can handle, so focusing is very difficult to sustain when I have to shoot vertical, facing down. Any suggestion from Nikon?

    Pairs Well with Nikon ES-2 Film Digitizing Adapter

    Posted by Ken Chan on August 4, 2022

    Purchased the Nikkor Z MC 50mm f/2.8 and the Nikon ES-2 Film Digitizing Adapter to digitize a collection of slides. While this pair works with the Nikon Z6 II, the documentation is completely lacking. Had to figure out the correct adapter since the documentation only covered F-mount lenses. Once I had the system set-up, I quickly scanned 5 dozen slides. The Z6 II was much faster and provided a higher resolution image than using a scanner at 2400 dpi.

    Best utility lens I've ever owned

    Posted by Alfred Benas on July 9, 2021

    Pre-ordered the 50 and the 105, each for different reasons. Have only received the 50mm, which was intended for cramped space still-lifes and for the ES film copier. I tried it out on my z7 II and haven't been able to take it off. It turns out to be the best utility lens I've ever owned; it just works in most every situation. Did I say lightweight and comfortable?.

    Working well for my project needs.

    Posted by Gary Morris on July 8, 2021

    So far this lens is working as expected. Terrific results when I use this lens on my new Z5. Takes excellent photos for our eBay listings.
