This is the lens I have been waiting for. A long time, that is: small, light, cheap, a travel lens longer than the usual 28-35mm wides, shorter than 50mm, plastic outside, but aspherical on the inside. With Apple presenting the iPhone 13 the same day, the Nikon news just did not get noticed. But to me, this is the one lens that I always missed, the one I will buy the same day it hits the shelf of my favourite shop.

The Z 50 mm f/1.8 may be the best lens in my bag, and I use it a lot. But there are so many times I leave the Z6 at home, just because until yesterday there was no lens like Sonys 35mm pancake, something smaller and lighter. I even ended up testing Leica M - adapter rings, the little Zeiss 35mm Biogon would have been perfect size-wise. But in the end... too expensive, and with no AF.

Now I am looking forward to receiving my sample. Anyone here sharing my passion for this kind of lens on our Nikon Z FX body?

Have a good time!
