Here is the blunt truth.
The lens is weather-sealed, has a silent stepping motor focusing system with very little focus breathing. It’s very well corrected, incredibly sharp with a very manageable size and weight.
These are also the accessories I use on my Nikon Z6.

Optically it’s just a decent lens, but Meike lenses are more known for their classic rendering with a bit more character.
This lens features a 12 blade aperture for smooth bokeh even at slower apertures, a 6 element optical formula for that smoother tonal depth and better micro-contrast, and an all-metal construction for long term reliability.
It’s well suited for photographers looking for a decent lens that is capable of handling just about any situation and don’t want to spend a ton of cash.
A lot of journalist ( dirty dirty smear merchants ) have been cherry picking statistics to push the doom and gloom narrative to make these camera companies look like they are in trouble, with the usual intent to make Sony look like it’s the new market leader and to make Canon and Nikon look like they are run by a bunch of idiots.
It’s a fun narrative to push and people lap it up.
In this article, I want to try to shed some light on what is actually happening, what Canon and Nikon are doing and what we will expect to see moving forward.
I still like the EOS R, I think it’s a more capable camera in terms of versatility, mainly because of the 30MP sensor and the flippy screen that is so nice for landscape work, but I actually enjoy using the Nikon Z6 more.
The main thing that’s really got me excited about the Nikon system is the (somewhat) affordable high quality f1.8 AF glass, which is what you’re seeing with all the samples in this post.
These two cameras will be very important to the mirrorless full frame industry after Sony has for five years completely owned the full frame mirrorless camera market.
