Just picked it up the twin lens kit, out of interest I tried the adapter and Sigma 100-400 it looked to work well, only tried in the shop as it is raining.

Having to stand under the balcony to keep out of the rain, subject choices are limited.

Thanks for your report and samples. How sharp wide open at longest end of both kit lenses?

I want to add the whole combo with two kit lenses to my Z6 system, but I'm not sure whether I buy them now or wait until Nikon has a good deal. This kit would replace my Z6 & 24-70/4S for travel.

These are plenty sharp and colorful. Much post-processing?

There's a pretty good deal available now...$150 off on the kit at B&H and probably elsewhere.

Image size reduction using Bilinear then about 20% unsharp mask

The red berries had NR applied to the background

The bottom two of the three images above are full telephoto (250mm) at f8, the 16-50 may be a while before it gets used.

I know that's a good deal if buy with two lenses, but I hope I can have a better deal in couple months, or this time next year :) . I usually pre-ordered (ex. Sony A7R3, Z6 kit, 85 1.8S) in the past but not this time because of loosing values too quickly... but NAS is hard to resist :).
The Z50 and 16-50 is exactly what I want to replace my recently sold Fuji XT30 and 18-55 2.8-4. I got rid of Fuji system and from now on, only one Z mount system.

If the Z50 bodies are coming in at $856 USD now, in a few months they're bound to drop even lower. It's also rumored Nikon has more Z announcements coming after Christmas, so it looks like they're going full steam with the Z mount.
