thx for the tip,I've found a really nice lens hood for the 16-50, if you decide to keep the kit.
It's fotodiox, and I've always had good luck with them and jjc as far as knockoffs. This one is us$8.95, the base screws in to the filter threads and then the hood itself uses spring loaded ball bearings to pop back onto the base. Both are aluminum. It doesn't vignette, and is much better shading than the little HN-40 ($24.95). Those little round Nikon WA hoods have never really helped with anything but keeping your paws off the front element.
As far as the z50/16-50 kit goes, I've had it since it was released. It's not the best Nikon camera lens combo I've ever owned in any category I can think of, but it has become my favorite Nikon combo (we're talking a lot of Nikons since 1973, I think KEH has named a wing after me).
so far I like the size and feel, still playing
wow you waited 10 years for your 1st post
