I am getting the 16-50 kit lens. The very lightly used one I found only had the one lens with it. There are some used 50-250 lenses on MPB. I may pick one of those up, but I do already have the 70-300 f4.5-5.6 AF-P that I use on my Z6 with the FTZ. I thought I would see how I like that one before I pick up a 50-250, but I am thinking that I'll probably want the lighter weight native lens. I also have a 35 f1.8 DX lens that I will want to use on it with the FTZ.Great news. It's a neat little camera. Several review sites talk about it as a 'mini Z6' but I don't find it so. What distinguishes the Z50 for me is the compact size and exceptional IQ. JPEG's from it are particularly nice and some of the best I've seen from Nikon.
Did you get one or both the the Z DX lenses?
Camera is here. We are getting ready to leave town, so I can't play with it yet, but it looks brand new. Supposedly it only had 500 shots on it. I'll check that out when I can.
The wife found out and blew a fuseHooray! Glad that it arrived before your trip! Why would someone have purchased this, only shot about 500 times, and then decided to sell the camera? Maybe he or she was dissatisfied with it for some reason, it wasn't handling or performing as they had expected, or maybe there was just good old buyer's remorse? Hope it all checks out to be perfectly fine for you and that you derive much enjoyment from it!
I bought my D7200 five years ago from a Nikon Cafe member who advertised it as having fewer than 500 clicks. When I got it and checked, it was actually fewer than 200. It's still giving excellent service.Why would someone have purchased this, only shot about 500 times, and then decided to sell the camera?
We see a lot of that on MacRumors.....some people seem to be serial buyers/returners. They buy something the instant it comes out and then then return it, sometimes or usually for a perceived flaw, take home another version of the same item, then return that one a few days later, all within the stated return period. Some apparently like to buy the newest thing, try it out and then decide that they'll either skip buying it immediately or will wait a while until it comes down in price, so return it..... Others buy an item, find some perceived flaw, return/exchange it and take home another of the same item, find a flaw or two in it, return it, take home another of the same item, find another flaw or two, return it..... I've seen posts where people have claimed to have bought/exchanged/returned as many as 15 or 16 of the same item! When you're talking about an expensive iPhone or an expensive computer, that's no small potatoes. They're just taking advantage of Apple's rather generous return policies, which is a shame. Sickening, really......Some people just gotta have the newest, latest, greatest . . . and then disappointment sets in, and the cycle begins all over again . . .
