Nikon's new Z50 has only been available for a week or so but its already received a huge discount for this great Cyber Monday deal.

For a limited time only, you can pick up the Nikon Z50 twin lens kit for only $1,196.95 - that's a huge saving of $150 off the retail price and unheard of for such a new camera. 

For your money, you get this mirrorless marvel and two lenses - a standard 16-50mm zoom and a longer 50-250mm, giving you an impressive focal range that'll be great for most subjects.

Why you should buy the Nikon Z50

The Z50 is pitched as an (even) smaller version of Nikon's highly rated Z6 and Z7 - two of our favorite mirrorless cameras in the last year or so. 

The Z50 features a smaller sensor than its full-frame siblings, but the 20.9MP APS-C sensor inside the Z50 is one of the best sensors around. 

While not aimed strictly at the first time user - the price point and array of features means it's designed more for those looking at something smaller to their DSLR or a powerful travel camera, the Z50's logical control layout means beginners shouldn't ignore if you've got the budget. 

The Z50 inherits a lot of the functionality and features of the Z6 and Z7, and has been styled to look very similar. 

There's a fast, wide Hybrid-AF autofocus system, which also includes Eye AF, while for composing your images there’s a large 2360k-dot electronic viewfinder or you can use the tilting 1040k-dot LCD monitor. A nice touch is that the screen can tilt to face all the way forwards, with a dedicated selfie mode.

Uncropped 4K video recording is available up to 30fps, as well as Full HD, slow-motion and time-lapse options.

Although the Z50 uses exactly the same mount as the older Z series snappers, two new lenses have been launched especially for it.

This is a great camera if you're looking for a powerful yet compact camera set-up that's ready to go - you just need an SD memory card.
