Nikon NIKKOR Z 50mm f/1.8 S Lens

The Nikon Nikkor Z 50mm f/1.8 S Lens is a simply iconic lens, so impressive that it will never leave your side. The 50mm lens is a fast wide-angle prime lens with a go-to angle of view. The Nikkor Z 50mm was completely redesigned for the Z Mount system. Perfect for professionals looking for a lens with a near unlimited world of wide-angle possibilities, the 50mm f/1.8 lens gives you a visionary perspective, versatile focus depth, decisive images in any light, and is ideal for any picture or video. The new Nikon Z Series is the most revolutionary and innovative mirrorless lens system around.

High Image Quality

The Nikkor Z 50mm f/1.8 S lens is powered by a high-speed stepping motor for autofocus that is fast, quiet, and accurate. Super integrated coating aids the optical element’s light transmission. The f/1.8 maximum aperture produces extremely sharp and consistent results that shine in low light conditions. An electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism in the lens barrel provides highly accurate aperture control when using auto exposure.

Better Design

The Nikkor Z 50mm f/1.8 S Lens was built to keep up with the highest performance imaging system in the world. The optical design features 12 lens elements in 9 groups, including 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. Equipped with Dual Detect 5-axis VR OIS that works perfectly with your Z Series mirrorless camera, unwanted blurs and shakes will disappear with this lens. Special fluorine coating protects against weather, dust, grease, and dirt so that this lens can handle the toughest storms and harshest conditions.
