Nikon Z50 Kit

Z50 with the 16-50 lens

I pre-ordered the Nikon Z50, Body-Only option, the same hour it was announced. However, I got fed up waiting for it, because it was never available.  Instead the two Z50 kits were always in stock, the Z50 with the !6-50 lens and the Z50 with the 16-50 + 50-250 lenses. Therefore, I canceled my order and ordered the kit with the 16-50 lens. I already got it. 

Nikkor Z DX 16-50 f/3.5-6.3 VR
I did not order the Z50 kit with the two lenses for two reasons. I already have the AF-S DX 18-200 VRII lens and the FTZ adapter. The 50-250 lens is too long, a DX equivalent of 75mm in the short end. The 18-200 is so much more useful.

I am very glad I ordered the kit with the 16-50 pancake lens, even though I have the AF-S DX 18-55 lens. The combination of the Z50 with the 16-50 is unbeatable. The camera with the lens are so light - the perfect travel camera. The Z50, so far, completely exceeded my expectations.

The only thing is that the battery takes a long time to charge and it is not that long lasting.  Therefore, I ordered two extra batteries and an additional battery charger.
