Nikon NIKKOR Z 50mm f/1.8 S Lens offers a normal-length field of view along with a bright f/1.8 maximum aperture. The comfortable perspective pairs with the f/1.8 design to suit working in difficult lighting conditions as well as offers increased control over depth of field. The optical design includes two aspherical elements and two extra-low dispersion elements, which greatly reduce both spherical and chromatic aberrations for increased sharpness and clarity. Both Nano Crystal and Super Integrated Coatings are used, too, to suppress flare and ghosting for greater colour fidelity and higher contrast.

Nikon NIKKOR Z 50mm f/1.8 S Lens Features:


Open up the light

The ultra-wide Nikon Z mount enables your NIKKOR Z lens to capture more light across the entire frame. Combined with the short distance between mount and sensor, light fall off at the edges of the frame is significantly reduced. The result is new possibilities for detail and nuance—all the way to the edge.

Create widely. Focus freely.

The NIKKOR Z 50mm f/1.8 S performs brilliantly when you shoot with available light. Combined with tack-sharp focus and a close focusing distance of just 0.4 m, you can work your kind of natural. Capture your subject along with part of the surrounding environment. Or focus closer for a detailed head and shoulder shot.

Unwavering precision

True to life. Open to light - The superior resolving power of this lens ensures peripheral light falloff is controlled to retain brightness across the frame. Every component of a scene is perfectly reproduced—even when you shoot wide open.

Sharper

Superior reproduction of point light sources, such as streetlights at night, is achieved by minimising sagittal coma flare. Point light sources appear as fine rounded points, even at the edges of the image.



Brighter

Two ED glass elements and two aspherical lens elements ensure crisp, brilliant images with rich colour and deep contrast.




Finer

Nikon’s anti-reflective Nano Crystal Coat reduces ghosting and flare for greater image clarity, even in backlit conditions. Or when shooting scenes with numerous direct light sources in the frame.



Artistry at any distance

Smooth bokeh. Spectacular sharpness. Combined with the nuanced shadows and detailed highlights achieved by your Nikon Z camera, you can create images with an incredible sense of depth.

Exquisite bokeh

The f/1.8 aperture and rounded 9-blade diaphragm enable creamy, natural-looking bokeh. Highlights are reproduced as gentle points. You get beautifully smooth results, even if you stop the aperture down a little.

Artistry at any distance

The lens’ focusing system ensures your area of focus is rendered sharply, even when shooting at close distances. Highlights are reproduced as gentle points.


Image driven

The NIKKOR Z AF stepping motor ensures focusing is incredibly precise, ultra-smooth and practically silent. Making this lens ideal for movies as well as stills.

Your angle

High-speed, large-capacity data transfer between lens and camera enables superb distortion compensation for incredible edge-to-edge sharpness.




Always precise

Floating lens elements ensure precise focus at close distances. An electromagnetic diaphragm ensures precise exposures during high-speed bursts.




Any light

This lens uses in-camera Vibration Reduction to let you shoot at shutter speeds up to five stops slower than otherwise possible. Capture clearer photos as daylight fades or film scenes without the unwanted effects of camera shake.



Take control

The wide, knurled control ring allows beautifully exact, intuitive operation. When shooting in AF mode, you can assign exposure-compensation settings to the control ring. When shooting in Manual Focus, the control ring can be used as a focus ring. Focus shifts according to how quickly or slowly you turn the ring, making precision work and filming close-ups easier.

Pitch-perfect performance

Faces full of beauty. The truth in a hidden look. Show more and tell more with a lens that’s built for shooting exceptional full-frame video footage.

Quiet on set

The near-silent stepping motor allows the quietest moments to deliver full emotional impact. And with a silent control ring that lets you pull focus with absolute precision, nothing will distract from your tensest scenes.

Breathless

Focus breathing is all but eliminated, enabling reliable composition of expressive shots. Smooth, stable aperture control delivers natural exposure changes throughout the scene.

Everywhere

Get out there. Every movable part of the lens barrel is sealed to protect from dust and water droplets.
