Kit includes:

Nikon Z50 Compact Mirrorless Digital Camera with Flip Under "Selfie/Vlogger" LCD | 2 Zoom Lens Kit Includes: NIKKOR Z DX 16-50mm f/3.5-6.3 VR & NIKKOR Z DX 50-250mm F/4.5-6.3 VR

Nikon Mount Adapter FTZ

The Camera and Two lens kit alone is $1,350, and the Mount is another $250, so I think it's pretty slick. Can probably sell the Mount adapter if you don't need it to recoup some of the cost.

Edit (thank you, GreatSave9):

For $1,046.90, you can get this package without the 50-250 lens.

Z 50 DX-Format Mirrorless Camera Body w/NIKKOR Z DX 16-50mm + FTZ Mount Adapter
by NIKON
Bundle total: $1,046.90

I think this is better for some who have old Nikon stuff. I cancelled my Refurb Z50 & Refurb FTZ Mount at $975 shipped from yesterday's Adorama sale, for this one at $1109 but then 5% back with Prime card. Figured for an extra $100 I get brand new equipment instead of refurb.

Good catch, I'm going to edit original post to include this. I saw that one too and almost pulled the trigger because I have a lens from my old D3200, but I read that the Z lenses really are a big improvement.

I'm in a similar boat as you. Waiting for the D7600 to come out.... eventually. But the Z cropped series is tempting esp with the adapter.

Any thoughts on how a small mirrorless body would feel with an adapter and bigger lens (vs mirror lens)

I don't like to put cold water on this "deal," but according to the three camels, it's been this price all year at Amazon, except for Sept.

They pulled that with plenty of "Lightning Deals" too...

Egg on my face. I'm surprised this hadn't popped up on SD before. I thought it was a pretty nice find for somebody in the market for a digital camera, especially if they already have Nikon lenses.

I dont know... Nikon Mirrorless has not impressed me lately. might as well get a FF D750, or a crop D7500, not a lot of Z lenses as well as 3rd party lenses. Most people will be adapting old Nikon F lenses anyway so might as well stick with Nikon DSLR.

I'm actually a fan of Mirrorless and I had my first interchangeable on back in the day in the Nikon 1 system, too bad lenses were expensive with 2.7x crop factor but i had amazing pictures out of that Nikon V1 camera. Then moved to Sony, started with NEX-5 then A6000, then moved back to Nikon D7100 because of available lenses and the system and controls are better at that time.

Then moved to Lumix G85 for 4k video, amazing IBIS and very usable files comparable to APS-C. m43 is amazing, good for wildlife and sports, small compact light weight system, can also adapt AF lenses from DSLRs, the only downside is slow AF and bad in low light.

That's why I moved to Sony FF system, it has a lot of the check marks I need in a camera, small form factor, good cheap available lenses, IBIS, good lowlight performer, better IQ, more MP, can adapt DSLR lens, the best Mirrorless system overall.

TL;DR Nikon Mirrorless is not the system you want to go for, better stick with Nikon DSLR, my preference is the Sony FF, and you can get the A7R ii for $1298.

Nikon mirrorless will mature, but they arent there yet.

Fuji mirrorless APS-C is very good and will soon be including IBIS on a lot of models. Sony FF mirrorless is very good as well

I'm pretty sure I got the z50, kit lens and FTZ adapter for under 1k a few months back. They were nicely bundled on Amazon.

Z6 ii release for $1,999 will drop current Z6 price. Z50 is already over priced. Even more so when the Z6 price drops.

TLDR - Buy a Z6 when price drops instead

Mirrorless is the future but I just dont like looking at a viewfinder with a screen in it. The mirror and glass show so much more. There are advantages to both.

Z6 list price is $2000, currently selling for $1800. If this were Sony, they'd keep producing the Z6 and sell it for less, but Nikon has already released the lower cost model (Z5) so they will probably stop shipping the Z6 before the price goes down much lower. Also, with a Z6 you need the more expensive full-frame lenses and XQD memory cards (Z6 only has an XQD slot, no SD). There's no way you'll put together a Z6+2-lens kit (or equivalent) for <$2000.
