I have not yet used my new 50-250 Z lens as much as some of you. I did do some tests of my nice little Canon 70-300 on the Z50 (Fringer adapter) to compare it with my Nikon DX 70-300 and was impressed with the Canon version. But then I shot some of the same subjects with the new Z 50-250 and saw the light! While all three lenses did quite well the Z lens beat them all on the subjects I was working with that day. More testing with different subjects under different conditions are needed of course but so far I have to give this 50-250 high marks just as others have.

I think this lens is unbeatable for that price.
Plastic fantastic lens!

I have used my 50-250 from my Z50 with my new Z5 and it works great. I am sure that if I tried to blow it up to a wall sized picture i would notice. I have two bird photos in my bedroom. Both are like 14" wide. One shot with a 24 MP D7100 the other shot with my old Panasonic FZ50 10 MP superzoom camera. Standing a few feet away looking at them you can not tell any difference in quality between them. Both are sharp and clear. I have no issues with a good photo taken at 10 MP for a normal sized print. Now, if you want a wall sized or so, that might be a different matter.

The 50-250 on the Z50 is nice for window light portraits. It's working distance allows Po to ponder without distraction.
