Over the past few weeks, we’ve been using the Nikkor Z 50mm F1.2 lens around Seattle and Packwood, Washington to see how Nikon’s fast prime performs. For all of the shots, including those captured inside Museum of Flight in Seattle, the lens was attached to a Nikon Z9.
As you’ll likely note while going through this gallery, a majority of these shots were taken at — or very near — wide open. That’s arguably the only reason to buy this lens, given that the excellent Z 50mm F1.8 S costs (and weighs) substantially less. If you’d like to see more stopped down shots from the Z 50mm F1.2 S, you can check out our initial gallery, shot on the Nikon Z7, which we published last year.
You can see how the lens performs on the Z9 by looking through the gallery below:

One of our favorite things about Micro Four Thirds is the variety of tiny, sharp lenses. How does OM System’s compact 40-150mm F4 Pro lens hold up under scrutiny?
