I have only used the 50mm 1.8 Z on Z7 briefly but I'm very impressed!

Even though there are only a few centimeters the lens is able to throw the back ground into a very calm soft Bokeh

The slow shutter speed and image stabilization alow for movement some of the web strands. Outstanding!

Metro Lines - Check ind

The way the lens and sensor is able to make the text readable even the tiny text in the display is recognizable at 100% - So pleasing rendering of the back wall, flat distinct joints between the plates. The steel floor as well, Truly a sharp lens, similar sharpness as 55mm Micro Nikkor f/2.8 (3.5) just keeping that crispness also at distance.

The colored light reflections are so saturated, wow some amazing coatings in this glass

Metro line - Follow the Arrows

Heavily PP'ed - There is just so much detail and texture that the possibility of story telling by editing is unlimited,,,

Still "GAS", Bent :)


The 50/1.8Z is a remarkably good lens, and at its fairly low price a true steal.

Very sharp and decent amount of microcontrast, probably the only lens you need on your Z ;)
