Nikon NIKKOR Z MC 50mm f/2.8 Lens

Capture smallest of details with the NIKKOR Z MC 50mm f/2.8 Lens from Nikon. Known for its spontaneity, the NIKKOR Z is an ideal lens to explore the minute details of everyday life. Capture subjects that are as close as 0.16m with 1x lifesize magnification. These advanced specifications make this lens ideal for everyday snapshots, food photography, or exploring the smallest details of everyday life. Compact, lightweight, and weather-sealed, it's likely to become one of your most prized and versatile lenses.

Up Close and Personal

It highlights the smallest of details by getting as close as 0.16m. This feature reveals hidden textures, shapes, and details in natura-feeling 50mm perspective.

Optimized for Close Distances

The NIKKOR Z MC 50mm f/2.8's AF system is optimized for close distances. This optimization makes the lens fast, accurate, and virtually silent with suppressed hunting and breathing. The adjustments made manually are silky smooth and precise. Flip the Focus Limiter switch and get even more speed and accuracy across a smaller distance range.

1x Lifesize Magnification

Transport your viewer to smaller worlds with 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.

Beautiful Bokeh

The NIKKOR Z MC 50mm f/2.8 creates a beautiful soft background blur or bokeh with its wide-open at f/2.8. Create images with dramatic selective focus, background/foreground separation for drawing in your viewer's attention.

Power of Two

An outstanding every day and portrait lens, the NIKKOR Z MC 50mm f/2.8 has a combination of shallow depth of field and 1x lifesize magnification which creates a unique almost 3D, effect in your stills and videos.

Mini To The Max

Nikon's unique front-focusing design minimizes the size and weight of the NIKKOR Z MC 50mm f/2.8. This is a wonderful compact, comfortable prime you'll want to leave on your camera.

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.

Mount That Makes The Difference

Nikon uses the largest lens mount of any full-frame mirrorless system. It may seem like a small difference, but its impact is huge. More light capture. Sharper details. Better colors. Less distortion. Lighter lenses.

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.

Edge-To-Edge Sharpness

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.

Minimal Distortion

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.
