Lens Description: Featuring a sleek design and versatile range, the Nikon NIKKOR Z 24-50mm f/4-6.3 is a compact standard zoom covering wide-angle to normal focal lengths. Its retractable design helps to achieve the slim form factor that is suitable to walkaround and travel shooting applications. A stepping motor provides quick, quiet, and precise autofocus performance along with full-time manual focus override to suit both stills and video applications. Its optical design incorporates three aspherical elements and a pair of low dispersion elements, which help to control a variety of aberrations for high sharpness and clarity. A Super Integrated Coating is featured, too, to suppress flare and achieve high contrast and color accuracy. Also, the lens sports a programmable control ring that can be set for intuitive adjustment over a variety of camera and exposure settings.

Photography Life Review Summary: The 24-50mm f/4-6.3 isn't a terrible lens, but there are simply other options in Nikon's mirrorless lineup better suited to most tasks. Unless you're sure the 24-50mm f/4-6.3 is the right fit for you, I recommend that most photographers get either the Nikon Z 24-70mm f/4 or Nikon Z 24-200mm f/4-6.3 as their first Z-series lens (or the 28mm f/2.8 or 40mm f/2 primes) instead.
