    1. Thanks Dave!

      I have total confidence in this gear’s ability to produce excellent image quality. Only a few years ago, I would have relied on a much larger (and heavier) Nikon D850 and Sigma 50mm ART combination to deliver comparable performance.

  1. Yep. I’ve been incredibly happy since picking up a Z6. I’m going to be full s mount by my first wedding this year. I’ve gotten the 24-70 2.8, 35 1.8 and 85 1.8 for now. Soon to add a second body and a few more lenses. I really enjoy how they handle.

    I compare it as the Z6 with the 35 is a 2020 Porsche
    The d750 with the 58 is a 1986 Ford F-250 in red

  2. The road to happiness, Peter? Nice! Has been a some time, hope you and your loved ones are doing great. I see you enjoying your Z system. Beautiful pics. Tried a Nikon Z6 myself for a commercial shoot and liked it. Needed a more versatile instrument so unfortunately the M9 had to go. Just received a z6 with the 24-70 f4 zoom. Now i have to decide on the 50 or 35 S lens. Since i have 35 and 50 Leica Summicrons and VC40 f1.4 i can also adapt on the Z6. Seeing your awesome work again, i think i want to start with the 50 s lens. Do you have any experience with the 35S lens?

    1. Hey Roel, long time no see! Thank you for your kind words.

      It must have been difficult for you to let go of your M9; I know it was for me. Over the years, I made a few attempts to part with it before the decision finally “stuck”.

      With respect to your question, I don’t have any direct experience with the 35/1.8S. It’s widely accepted that all of the S lenses are excellent, though the 50/1.8S is considered superior to the 35/1.8, on a purely technical level. Having said that, I do enjoy viewing images taken with the 35/1.8S, which is still considered to be the best 35 that Nikon has ever produced.

      If I were in your position, I would be deciding purely on the basis of which of the two (50 vs 35) focal lengths you tend to gravitate towards the most, if you are looking to only purchase one lens for the time being.
