Comments: 24, on the topic: Announcement: Nikon Nikkor Z DX 50-250 1: 4.5-6.3 VR

  • Pavel Gorbunov

    It's not even funny ...

    • Arkady Shapoval

      'We made a huge Z-mount for super-fast optics, but ... we'll only do 6.3'

      • Cruel Kronos

        not only Sigme and Tamron apply this magic number, so the great Nikon undertook. Is there really so many focus points in vain? Waiting for zooms from 8 and 11 at the long end

        • Arkady Shapoval

          Sony also makes 6.3, even on "professional" type lenses Sony E 70-350mm f / 4.5-6.3 G OSS.

          • Denys

            Such lenses have applications - travel and outdoor photography. When skiing, the FF bike is simply inappropriate (or it uses some unfortunate one or two fixes)

  • Roman

    Show them someone Canon 55-250 with a diameter of 58 mm and a third greater aperture at both ends for less money. A couple at all.

    • Pavel Gorbunov

      This is a nail in the lid of Nikon's coffin ...
      I will not put a candle for repose))

    • Victor

      Yeah, and with worse sharpness, and the picture as a whole. Go ahead, to the canon.

      • Michael

        This is just unlikely

        • Alexey

          This is exactly the reality, this one has sharpness and the picture is generally better than the full-frame 70-300 on crop)

  • Alexey

    This is tin. Will be in the whale kit vykhuhivat.

    • Arkady Shapoval

      Not only those who do not have time to buy from 16-50, he will buy separately and significantly more expensive :)

      • Alexey

        Separately, it will not be needed, as it is now 55-200.

  • Ilya A

    Everything was fixated on the diaphragm. And this is not the main parameter of the lens. I appreciate lenses for sharpness, autofocus accuracy, and ease of use. Often I shoot on the covered aperture. There are other lenses with completely different characteristics for other purposes.

    • Arkady Shapoval

      The fact of the matter is that there are no other lenses, there are still two DX Z lenses with 6.3. The rest of the DX F - only through the adapter. It turns out that in order to use some kind of DX F 12-24, you also need an FTZ adapter, the price tag for which is also not humane. I don't think the average amateur photographer will be happy about that.

    • Stas

      I agree, some kind of kindergarten ... I have 55-300 from 4.5 starts ... and howl, how is that ?? 4.5 ??? why not 2.8 ??? great lens.

      • Arkady Shapoval

        But here users are not complaining about 4.5, but 6.3.

      • Alexey

        The task of the whale and the younger full-frame telephoto cameras does not include highly artistic shooting, it is important for the lens to be light and sharp enough with which all dark lenses do an excellent job, and the difference between 5.6 and 6.3 is not at all fundamental on the same Z50. I have an AF-P 70-300 f / 4.5-5.6E, there is an AF-P DX 70-300 f / 4.5-6.3 VR and there is a 50-250 from the Z50 kit, and so, I hooked up to the Z50 through an adapter (also from kit) both versions of AF-P, well, there is no fundamental gain from 5.6, the main fundamental difference in color rendition and here AF-P DX 70-300 merges everything, 50-250 on Z50 is sharper than AF-P 70-300 f / 4.5 -5.6E, the last two are almost identical in colors, but on the Z2 II AF-P 6-70 f / 300-4.5E behaves quite differently.

        • Alexander

          Have you compared 70-300 dx and 50-250 at 250mm? I want Z50 telephones, 70-300 are cheaper than Z by 1.5 times. Can't decide if the overpayment is worth the Z version

  • Roman

    And where is the folding case here? If at 16-50 it is really folding, then there’s somehow nifiga. 50 mm when folded look a little different :)

    • Arkady Shapoval

      Take a closer look at the length of this lens at 50 mm and the length when folded

      • Roman

        No, well, a typical dark zoom came out with a trunk. 16-50 when folded is almost a pancake. For this, 6.3 can be forgiven at the long end. And then somehow ...

        • Arkady Shapoval

          Somehow unusual, but nevertheless it develops to receive compact sizes. Television for APS-C has not yet learned to fold in a pancake

          • Roman

            Well, just like ... If yongnuo released this, I would be happy for them. And so - well, Canon has been producing something like this for several years, only without an additional multifunctional ring, just focusing.
