The iconic go-to lens totally reimagined.
50mm prime. An icon. Visionary perspective. Versatile focus depth. Capable of delivering striking decisive images in nearly any light. Ideal for all manner of videos. The definition of a inch go to inch lens. It should be no surprise that Nikon chose the 50mm to be among the first of a new generation of superb NIKKOR Z lenses. And in doing so have achieved a 50mm f/1.8 unlike any before it.
A 50mm f/1.8 like no other Performance that totally defies expectations Empowered by the Z system's larger mount shorter flange distance raw imaging power and video capabilities the NIKKOR Z 50mm f/1.8 S will redefine your notion of what a 50mm f/1.8 lens can do.
Unfathomable sharpness The sharpness achieved by this 50mm is nothing short of staggering. Z Mount delivers even lighting from the center of the frame to the far edges. No need to stop it downÑit's equally sharp at f/1.8 as it is at f/2.8.
Unwavering autofocus Powered by an ultra-quiet stepping motor and enhanced by the additional light gathered by the Z Mount focusing is fast silent and accurate. Great for stills; even better for video.
Aberration free zones New levels of aberration control. 2 Extra-low Dispersion (ED) and 2 Aspherical (AS) lens elements plus Nano Crystal Coat for virtually zero flare ghosting coma or chromatic spherical and axial aberration even at the far edges of the frame.
