More details on the Nikon NIKKOR Z 50mm f/1.8 S

Product Research


Overview: The NIKKOR Z 50mm f/1.8 S is a new standard prime lens for Nikon's new Z-series of mirrorless full-frame cameras. It can also be used on a DX-format camera with an APS-C image sensor, providing a 75mm equivalent focal length. The lens is ideal for streetscapes, portraits, close-ups, interviews and how-to videos, and much more. The lens comes with a lens hood and a soft storage pouch.

9-blade Rounded Diaphragm: The NIKKOR Z 50mm lens features a fast f/1.8 aperture with a 9-blade rounded diaphragm. This combination can produce stunning out-of-focus background elements (bokeh) in your photographs.

Weather Sealed: The lens is durable and lightweight, and is extensively sealed against dust and water, particularly around all moving parts.

Control Ring: The NIKKOR Z 50mm f/1.8 S features a new customizable control ring. In the camera menu, you can assign one of three functions to the control ring. By default, the ring controls manual focusing, however, you can set it for aperture control or exposure compensation.

Nikon Technologies: The lens is equipped with the following Nikon technologies:

  • Stepping Motor (STM): The lens uses a stepping motor to give you fast, quiet autofocusing. This makes it ideal to use when shooting video.
  • ED (Extra-low Dispersion) Glass: ED glass elements are used to obtain optimum correction of chromatic aberrations.
  • Aspherical Lens: Aspherical lens elements have curved, non-spherical surfaces, which reduce aberrations, and allow lighter, and more compact lens sizes. They correct distortion in wide-angle lenses.
  • Nano Crystal Coat: Developed by Nikon, the anti-reflective Nano Crystal Coat eliminates ghosting and flare caused by light entering the lens diagonally, particularly red light.
  • Electromagnetic Diaphragm Mechanism: An electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism gives you accurate diaphragm and aperture blade control when using auto exposure, particularly during continuous shooting.
  • Internal Focusing (IF): Because only the internal lens group shifts during focusing, this IF lens does not change in size.
  • Super Integrated Coating (SIC): The optical elements in NIKKOR lenses have a multi-layer coating.
