    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.

    Z 50 2.8

    Posted by RACHEL BURT on July 8, 2021

    I've had the lens for approximately two weeks and so far it exceeds my expectations. The photos are sharp, portraits are amazing and close ups are extremely nice. It is a great addition to my Z lens collection. I would highly recommend that you give it a try, you'll love it.
