Nikon Z 20mm f/1.8 S announced
#1
No surprises, matches the other ones:

That's one annoyance of the S primes, at least for me: they all look the same. Maybe this will change over time, but so far I always actually need to look at the writing on the lens to make sure I grab the right one.

Does that mean you are going to test the lens?

Yes, definitely. Z reviews are getting closer Wink

Maybe I publish some sample images soon (of the other primes, not the 20/1.8)

Have to agree. They are designed to be cheap to produce and maximize the profit. But maybe I'm just too old-fashioned. I still find the design "modern" at best and soon after that comes "...and ugly".
I'm wondering why none of the camouflage-neoprene-tube companies came out with personalized neoprene tubes with exchangeable colour rings at one end? Hmmm, maybe I have to place this question at them?

In the sample video I didn't see much of flare, and in the sample pics the bokeh was rather pleasant. Nice lens. Should I wait until the first "decentering issues" appear?
