On the heels of the big announcement of its new Z cameras, Nikon introduced a trio of new lenses designed specifically for those full frame mirrorless models. The three new lenses use the new larger-diameter mount of the 45.7MP Z 7 and 24.5MP Z 6, which is designed to let more light in for improved edge-to-edge sharpness and better image quality compared to some competing mirrorless camera systems using smaller mounts.

Nikon, long favored by pros and advanced amateurs for cameras with state-of-the-art capabilities, has recently targeted budget-conscious photographers with mirrorless models offering an uncommon combination of value and price. A year ago, I reviewed the Nikon Z6, a nimble, full-frame mirrorless camera at a price of $1,995 for the body. While that camera was considerably less expensive than more advanced Nikon models, it’s more than twice the cost of the new Nikon Z50 that we’ll look at today.

There’s been growing anticipation of a new Nikon mirrorless camera, especially since the company’ Nikon 1 interchangeable lens mirrorless system with its tiny CX-format sensor hasn’t exactly taken the world by storm. And a recently published interview with Tetsuro Goto, Nikon’s Director of Laboratory R&D in Japan, makes it clear that “If Nikon will go mirrorless it must be full frame.”
