Meike 50mm f/1.7 lens for Nikon Z-mount review

This Meike Z 50mm f/1.7 lens review is by Steve Gong ( stevegongphoto.com , Facebook , Instagram ). The lens can be purchased at  B&H  and  Amazon . Introduction Although it’s been six months since the Nikon mirrorless Z system was announced, there’s still a dearth of native Z mount lenses, and the ones that are available are in my opinion somewhat overpriced (starting at $599 for the Nikon 50mm f/1.8 S) .
