Lens Description: Sleek yet long-reaching, the Nikon NIKKOR Z DX 50-250mm f/4.5-6.3 VR is a 75-375mm-equivalent zoom designed for DX-format Z-mount mirrorless cameras. Spanning a versatile range of telephoto focal lengths, this zoom is well-suited for working with distant subjects as well as portraiture applications. Its optical design incorporates one extra-low dispersion element, which greatly helps to reduce a color fringing and chromatic aberrations for greater clarity and color rendering. A Super Integrated Coating has also been applied to minimize ghosting and flare for increased contrast and color accuracy in bright and backlit conditions.

Photography Life Review Summary: Overall, the Nikon Z DX 50-250mm VR is a great lens that I have no problem recommending to our readers. While it is not an optical marvel like many of its high-end Nikon Z siblings, it is certainly hard to beat in value, once you factor in its price, weight, and size.
