The new Nikon Z50 Prices and Specs

User Rating: 0 / 5

 

 

Nikon introduces the new Nikon Z50 an APS-C size sensor body with the new Z mount that is also seen in their Full Frame sensor bodies Z6 and Z8.

Being that the Z50 has a Z mount means you can use Full Frame Z mount lenses on the Z50.    The styling is very simlar of that of the Z6 and Z7 minus the top LCD and no Joystick and minues few buttons.

Nikon opted for a new 20MP Sony Sensor - which is less then that from Fuji and Sony - but 20MP still should be enough - the idea is to maximize low light performance.  

The Z50 sports a very nice grip and the Z50 feels better in the hand then that of the Sony A6400 and Fuji XT30.

The menu system will feel very familiar to Nikon DSLR owners.  The new Z50 has PDAF Phase Detect Auto Focus with EYE Auto Focus so focusing will be very good. 

The Nikon Z50 will suport the DSLR DX mount lenses with an adapter so you can use your lenses.    As always with new systems it will take few years before there will be a good selection of native lenses.  Nikon is offering two native lenses initially, but of course you can buy the avilable Full Frame native Z mount lenses as well but there will be a year or two for more affortable native lenses become available.

The Z50 sports a really nice Touch LCD.  The new LCD has 3 Soft Touch Buttons.

Nikon will introduce a new mid-price mirrorless camera product in fiscal 2019. The same interchangeable lens can be used in the product that corresponds to a sister model such as the high-end model “Z7” launched by the company in the autumn of 2006. It is expected that the price will be in the 100,000 yen range, which is easier for the general consumer to pick up than the leading 200,000 to 400,000 yen model. The aim is to develop the demand of users other than existing enthusiasts.
