Set your sights on a new world.
50mm is a natural focal length. Similar to our field of vision it just feels right in so many situations. The NIKKOR Z MC 50mm f/2.8 brings that just-right feeling to the exciting world of macro. Shoot as close as 0.16m and capture the smallest details at 1x lifesize magnification—ideal for spontaneous snapshots food photography or exploring the small details of everyday life. Or use it as an everyday lens to enhance foreground/background separation and selective focus. Compact lightweight and weather-sealed it's likely to become one of your most prized and versatile lenses.
Up close & personal.
Get as close as 0.16m to highlight the smallest details. Exciting new possibilities open at this distance—frame-filling views that reveal hidden textures shapes and details all in a natural-feeling 50mm perspective.

Large as life. The key to transporting your viewer to smaller worlds is 1x lifesize magnification. This 1:1 reproduction ratio creates an effect unique to macro lenses. Use it to draw attention add drama or accurately reproduce small objects and documents.
The beauty of bokeh. Wide open at f/2.8 The NIKKOR Z MC 50mm f/2.8 creates a beautiful soft background blur or bokeh. Create images with dramatic selective focus background/foreground separation for drawing in your viewer's attention.
More than macro. The NIKKOR Z MC 50mm f/2.8 is also an outstanding everyday and portrait lens. The combination of its shallow depth of field and 1x lifesize magnification creates a unique almost three-dimensional effect in your stills and videos. And its compact rugged design make it a multipurpose workhorse.

Real-world ready. Getting close to your subject means sometimes accidentally coming in contact with it. When this happens the NIKKOR Z MC 50mm f/2.8's nonstick Fluorine coating prevents fingerprints smudges and grime on the front surface. It's also weather sealed against dust, dirt and moisture, so you can confidently take it anywhere.
Stop stopping down.
The sweet spot of traditional lenses are often a stop or two from wide open. Not NIKKOR Z lenses. They're just as sharp wide open as they are stopped down.
NIKKOR Z lenses are as sharp at their edges as they are at their centers. Vignetting and light falloff seen in traditional lenses are virtually nonexistent.
NIKKOR Z lenses have conquered many traditional imperfections. The NIKKOR Z MC 50mm f/2.8 uses both Aspherical and Extra-low Dispersion glass elements to virtually eliminate chromatic aberration usually seen in macro close-up shooting.
