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.

Sharp, contrasty, cheaper than the F Mount - but it is longer, wider and heavier! So much for small and compact mirrorless!

Is it just me or are the supplied sample files completely unimpressive in terms of lens optical performance?
