Nikon Z5 + Nikkor Z 24-50mm f/4-6.3 Kit $2039 Delivered ($1689 after Nikon Cash Back) @ Amazon AU and digiDIRECT

130

Good price considering that the lens is selling $600-700 in Aust camera stores. HK stores sell the lens cheaper but you don't get Aust 2 years warranty.
Good package deal for a well reviewed camera if you are starting your full frame journey and not invested heavily in other systems.

    Best to just get body only. Anyone shooting with this would have an idea of what lens they are using (if not already a full collection).

      Z mount lenses are relatively new and expensive. If you can afford to have couple, you'd likely be a Z6 or Z7 owner already :-)
      I see the Z5 as an entry level full frame (very good quality one at that), user wants to try out a bit with a general purpose lens without investing heavily, before deciding what kind of shooting they like most, then get the specific lenses.

        ..50mm-f6.3 is just soooooooo bad even for the kit lens

          Full frame should be ok.

            @qzcbmo: I wouldn't mind a Z5… similarly still hanging onto the D610 being an ex 5Dii and iii owner. Only keeping the D610 + 24-70 2.8 for occasions. But yea, the kit lens for a FF is just wrong…

            Yea. For noobs, probably better off starting with apsc or even one of those large sensor point-n-shoot (Canon G1X III).

    I think its a great deal, specially with the lens.
    Contrary to popular belief, a cheap all-in-one lens has so many uses:
    - Great walk around lens during the day
    - Good for YouTube videos where you have some flexibility with framing.
    - Good for detailed product and B-roll stuff.
    - Nice to have when handing your camera over to a someone who isn't familiar with primes.
    - Useful for when you are taking some risky shots or want to do some hacks.
    - Improves resale value

    • Many more I haven't yet come across.
      I think a cheap kit lens is great to have.

    anyone can suggest lens for taking mostly portraits, kids, and street photos? Keen on sharp photos and good low-light performance. thanks

      IMO for most people, 50mm is good for portrait, 35mm for general purpose/street, 24mm for general indoor/architecture/landscape. So this kit is sufficient if you are trying out full frame and honing your settings knowledge. If you have the $ and knowledge already, I'd use a faster 24-70mm, or you can buy prime lenses but they'd cost more combined.
      24-70mm F4 https://www.parramattacameras.com.au/nikon-nikkor-z-24-70mm-...
      24-70mm F2.8 much more expensive but faster (better in low light) https://www.digidirect.com.au/nikon-nikkor-z-24-70mm-f-2-8-s...
      Wait for a big discount promo on eBay, you may get them cheaper.

        The 1st one is 890 on Amazon.

          Not Amazon direct though, looks like a grey import reseller for that one (82% rating).
