Well ime only just recovering from the none launch of the DL24-500 ,the Z50 with no IBIS is another letdown, before i read the details it was on my list of possibilities
Really? I couldn't care less if it has IBIS or not. On the contrary, IBIS is just another component that may fail. For bird photography I need high shutter speeds anyway, and for everything else VR is good enough as far as I'm concerned.
Not every feature is necessarily a must-have.
I thought a Z body i could afford if it had IBIS would allow me to use the Nikon 300mm f4 and on occasion the 1.4 tc with it, i need VR or IBIS.
Being on the pension now i need to give more thought to what i spend so the 300mm PF i decided was too expensive.
Sorry if I came across far more strongly than I wanted. My apologies.
Yep, with the 300/f4 + 1.4 VR or Ibis makes a lot of sense. And the previous version of the 300 doesn't have VR, so Ibis helps a lot.
In fact, thinking about it, I still have my old 400mm/f5.6 IF-ED going back to the times of film photography. That should work well with a body that has Ibis, at least with stationary birds.
I'm still on the fence about the 300 PF. Not on a pension yet, but I will be in two years time, so I don't want to spend too much money right now. At the moment I make do with the AF-P 70-300 FX as my walk-about lens, a fantastic lens taking into account how (relatively) little it costs.
Over 40 years of Nikon helped :t:
I have been longing for the rebirth of the Nikon 1, this i think is the closest we will get.
The body is lighter than my EM1MK11.
Hope the 'NIKKOR Z 200-600mm Zoom Lens' becomes available to reflex Nikons. o

So far Nikon seems to be virtually converting some existing designs (particularly zooms) resulting in bigger and heavier (but quicker to market) lenses, with very few completely new designs that take full advantage of the Z mount capabilities.
