5 Minute Review: The Nikon Z 50mm F1.2 S Is Gorgeous and Vibrant!

Reviews Editor Hillary Grigonis talks about her findings with this beautiful Nikon lens.

The Nikon Z 50mm f1.2 S was reviewed recently by us. And it’s an overall very beautiful lens. Nikon has always been a solid lens maker. Not only does this lens have great image quality, but it’s weather sealed. That’s so incredibly important for many of us who actively shoot outdoors. So we took our full review and summarized it in 5 minutes. Also, be sure to check out our Pro Camera Reviews show!

In This Episode:

Nikon Z 50mm f1.2 S:

The Nikon Z 50mm f1.2 S captures an impressive mix of sharpness, color, and character. Images coming from this lens are gorgeous. But, you have to be willing to bring along the extra weight and work with an autofocus system behind the competition.” This is a quote from our full review. And as you’ll see we find the lens to be fairly pricey.

The Megapixel Wars Have to Stop: Everything has changed when it comes to cameras, yet everything remains the same. Cameras have come on in leaps and bounds when it comes to technologies like autofocus and AI. Still, the one thing that camera manufacturers keep on trying to cram down our throats is Megapixels. Every week, we see speculation about brands pushing to release 100 Megapixel cameras, but why? At what point do we say enough is enough? In this segment, we’ll talk about the megapixel wars. Why it’s honestly a war that’s not worth fighting, and the implications it will have on you. We’ll also talk about what camera manufacturers should be focusing on instead.

The L Mount System is Finally a Fully Functional Camera Platform: Both Chris and Brett recently bought into the L mount system. They’ve been testing gear for a very long time, and they thought it was finally time. The system consists of Leica, Panasonic, and Sigma. Chris and Brett will go through what they like about the camera system vs. others. And they’ll also tell you where they really need to improve. Could the second mirrorless full frame camera system really be your next purchase?
