The Nikon Z 50mm f/1.8 S is a “normal” lens for everyday shooting with Nikon Z-mount cameras. Key features include:
Only for Nikon Z-mount cameras
Excellent for everyday use and low-light shooting
Fast, nearly silent autofocus
Nikon Z System. The Nikon Z 50mm f/1.8 S was designed specifically for cameras in Nikon’s full-frame Z-mount system. Z-mount lenses only work with Z-mount cameras, such as the Z7 and Z6, and Z-mount cameras are only natively compatible with Z-mount lenses.
Normal-Range Prime. The 50mm focal length is a popular choice for just about any type of photography. It’s used often for portraiture, landscape, and street photography.
High-Quality Optics. The Nikon 50mm f/1.8’s nine-group/twelve-element optical design features two extra-low dispersion elements and two aspherical elements to promote sharpness and color rendering while limiting chromatic aberrations. Nikon has applied Nano Crystal and Super Integrated coatings to the elements to combat ghosting and lens flare, even when you’re working in bright or backlit conditions.
Fast Aperture. The f/1.8 aperture allows a high degree of subject/background isolation desired for portraiture. It also enables the lens to be very useful for low-light shooting. The nine rounded aperture blades contribute to smooth bokeh.
Stepping Motor Autofocus System. The stepping motor allows for fast, silent, and smooth operation. Pairing a speedy AF system together with a continuous manual mechanism allows you to hit your focus with confidence, while the internal-focusing design means that the lens maintains its length during focusing.
Durable Build. This lens’s durable, moisture-resistant construction means you can use it in adverse conditions without worry. The exposed elements have a fluorine coating to protect them from debris and smearing. A programmable control ring lets you adjust manual focus, aperture, or exposure compensation.
