Nikon Z lenses - are they better than F Mount?

Featured Saturday, 27 October 2018 12:47

Nikon has been promoting the larger diameter and shorter flange distance of the Z mount, and how this will allow more lens designs, easier design, better optics, faster AF and edge to edge sharpness. But are they actually better?

In this video I compare the 24-70mm f4 Z lens to the 24-70mm f2.8G lens and the 35mm f1.8 Z lens to the Tamron 35mm f1.8 VC. Tested on their native mount cameras the Z7 and the D850.

The RF is a VERY impressive performer - but it comes at a big size, weight and cost disadvantage!
