Nikon NIKKOR Z 50mm f1.8 S

Dance with the light. The outstanding optical performance of this full-frame S-Line NIKKOR Z lens sets a new standard for f/1.8 lenses. With brightness and detail that outshine the f/1.4 primes that have come before¹ this isn’t just a new kind of 50 mm lens. It’s a new future for incredible photography.

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.

The NIKKOR Z 50mm f/1.8 S performs brilliantly when you shoot with available light. It combines tack-sharp focus with a close focusing distance of just 40 cm for classic, head and shoulder portraits.  Or capture your subject along with part of the surrounding environment

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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

The NIKKOR Z multi-focusing system and multiple AF drives ensure focusing is incredibly precise, ultra-smooth and practically silent. Making this lens ideal for movies as well as stills.

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

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

This lens uses in-camera Vibration Reduction to let you shoot at shutter speeds up to five stops slower than otherwise possible.² Capture clearer photos as daylight fades or film scenes without the unwanted effects of camera shake.

The wide, knurled control ring allows beautifully exact, intuitive operation. When shooting in AF mode, you can assign ISO or 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.

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.

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.

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

Get out there. Every movable part of the lens barrel is sealed to keep out dust and water droplets. A fluorine coating actively repels water, dust, and dirt without compromising image quality.
