Glad for you Terry.I got a used copy of the lens yesterday. It's going to be a nice lens for hiking with my Z50. It's much smaller and lighter than my 70-300 lens. We had new snow fall last night and everything looks beautiful today. So I tried out the new lens.View attachment 1676164View attachment 1676165View attachment 1676166View attachment 1676167View attachment 1676168View attachment 1676169
If your copy is a good one, no probleme for your satifaction. Couple examples with mine.I hope I say the same thing after I give It a good trial!!
Glad you are happy with this plastic fantastic.I was experimenting with my 50-250 lens the other day. I was indoors on a fairly gloomy day and figured the lens would never give me a good result in those conditions handheld. Greg was reading and I took a candid photo of him. The 1/20 second shutter was surprising. The VR on the lens works very well. I was a bit worried about the Z50 because it doesn't have internal IS. But unless this image was a total fluke, I think it will be more usable indoors that I first thought. It would never work for my quick moving grandkids. But a stationary subject seems doable. The high ISO performance isn't as good as my Z6, but still is very good.
