Nikon Z DX 50 250mm Lens (2)


If you haven't read our full Nikon Z50 review but want to see what this 5x optical zoom lens is capable of then have a look at these images. If you have seen the review, then you'll find some additional images here, plus more information on the lens.

The Nikon Nikkor Z DX 50-250mm f/4.5-6.3 VR lens features optical Vibration Reduction (VR), Nikon's name for Optical Image Stabilisation, this is particularly useful, as the Z50 doesn't feature in-body image stabilisation. The lens is an extending/collapsible lens, meaning when it's not in use it can be compacted down to be as small as possible, although of course, it's not as small as the 16-50mm lens. When extended it starts out not too much larger, but when fully extended it's quite long and gives an equivalent to 75 to 375mm in 35mm equivalent terms.

The lens has a plastic mount and has a 62mm filter thread on the front. You can use the lens on a Nikon Z6 or Nikon Z7, although this will be using the APS-C crop, so the image output resolution will be reduced, with 10mp images from the Z6, and 20mp images from the Z7.

We were impressed by the sharpness on offer, particularly at the wide end of the lens. At the telephoto end of the lens, images are a little softer, but the lens still gives good results. There is some vignetting visible in the telephoto shots, however, this should be easy to correct.
