It's quite a looker, too. These kit lenses, however ...
Even worse - I can only spot one more DX lens in their roadmap. And that's till 2021.
Not sure whether we'll dive into this one (albeit I'm a bit curious).
I don't think it's the D500's sensor ...... on sensor PDAF means exactly that ........ the D500's sensor doesn't have it.
The new mount is a bit ridiculous on the Z50 requiring large diameter lenses on a small camera ..... and frankly I don't see it getting a full range anytime soon.
First, Klaus never said anything about the D500 sensor, that was me talking about what I heard from Chris' and Jordan's review on DPReview. Meanwhile I also heard speculations about "sensor being the same as in D7500", and frankly, I don't care much.
Second, I don't think you're getting Nikon's idea behind offering a DX-sensor behind the far too big mount: The only very compact lenses are slow primes or even slower collapsible zooms. The Z 50 might not be the D500 replacement, just in mirrorless - so far I haven't seen any Nikon mirrorless for professional needs.
But the Z 50 comes with two lenses, covers 16-250 mm and is a direct competitor to Fuji's X-T30 (with the same lenses). I don't think it's better than what the market has to offer - but it's a first choice for Nikon DX owners who want to tip a first toe into ML waters without getting too wet, but with the option to use their DX-lenses. Same as Z 6 and 7, just in small. And therefore I don't think, Nikon's working day and night to bring out more DX-glass. For now, these two lenses make a nice package, SW correction included and benefitting from the sensor's high ISO IQ.
Canon went two mounts - and although the M-line is in the market for quite a while now, I don't think Canon themselves would call the lens line-up as "complete". Nikon doesn't bother for a fourth line of mounts - I consider the 1-lenses a mount system, even if it failed in the market. They don't repeat the same mistakes they made with the 1-mount: F-lenses on the FT1 adapter work only in AF-C by reducing the number of focus points to 1, which is the center point. That was a rather stupid idea, I'm glad someone learnt something at Nikon.
