Capture Beautiful and Powerful Images

The Nikon Z 50mm f/1.8 lens is a high-performance prime lens, boasting an ultra-bright f/1.8 aperture. When combined with an FX-size full-frame sensor, it can capture images with an ultra-shallow depth of field. This allows photographers to use selective focus to create stunning and powerful images, making it an ideal tool for visual storytelling. Plus, a fast and accurate stepping motor provides near-silent internal focusing for amazing autofocus in both photo and video modes.

50mm Focal Length

One of the staple pieces of equipment for almost any style of photography is the trusty 50mm, which is why the first lens for the Nikon system is a wide aperture f/1.8 50mm lens. Perfect for portraits, close-up shots and street photography, this focal length is one of the most versatile making this lens a super useful addition to your kit.

Ultra-Bright f/1.8 Aperture

Perfect for shooting in darker conditions, the Nikon 50mm Z-mount lens has a super-bright f/1.8 aperture which allows you to capture great-looking images even in low light. The super-wide aperture can also create an ultra-shallow depth of field to take your portraits to the next level.

Fast, Accurate Autofocus

Inside the lens is a powerful stepping motor (STM) that provides fast and accurate autofocus for both photo and video. Internal focusing means the lens doesn't change size or rotate, so your composition stays exactly as you imagine it. The STM motor also makes focusing a quiet affair, making it excellent for staying discreet while capturing special moments during events or travel.

Versatile and Customisable Focus Ring

Easily noticed is the wide, ergonomic focusing ring around the 50mm Z-mount lens, offering comfortable control over manual focus. That same ring has amazing versatility, offering you the ability to set its functionality to control aperture or exposure compensation. This makes it extremely easy to customise your camera and lens to suit your workflow no matter how you like to shoot.

12 Elements in 9 Groups

The optical design consists of 12 elements arranged in 9 groups with 2 Extra-Low Dispersion and 2 Aspherical elements that help control distortion and colour aberration. Each element has a Nano Crystal coating to reduce flare, ghosting and spherical distortion, delivering sharp, high-resolution images even at the edges of the frame.

Beautiful Bokeh

A rounded 9-blade diaphragm along with the wide f1.8 aperture and larger mount delivers smooth bokeh effects in your out-of-focus background and highlight areas. The lens lets you get creative with your photos and depth of field, even at shorter focusing distances.

Durable, Lightweight and Weather Sealed

The Nikon 50 mm Z lens has been thoughtfully designed with a lightweight, yet durable body. All moving parts of the lens have been sealed for protection against moisture and dust, giving you the confidence to shoot in almost any condition.
