    The iconic go-to lens, totally reimagined.

    The Nikon NIKKOR Z 50mm f/1.8 S Lens is the ultimate tool of photographic versatility! With its wide aperture, it allows you to capture stunning images in nearly any light, from bright sunlight all the way to near darkness. The convenience that comes with a single, prime lens can't be overstated - this 50mm will deliver you a one-of-a-kind perspective on whatever captures your gaze. You'll get razor sharp focus and beautiful depth of field possibilities when shooting portraits or landscapes - compressed lines, leading lines and bokeh swirls become absolute masterpieces in your hands. When recording videos the autofocus works fluidly and with exceptional accuracy thanks to its multi-focusing system, giving you control simply not attainable by manual focusing alone. Plus, with its weather sealing technology, you don't need to fret about conditions when you're out in nature - bring on the rain and wind shoots! In other words, if you want a truly "go-to" lens that's capable of capturing and expressing your vision without fail no matter where or what the occasion - look no further than Nikon NIKKOR Z 50mm f/1.8 S Lens!

    S-Line. NIKKOR quality at its absolute best.

    With superior performance and resolution, sophisticated features, specialized technologies, and enhanced reliability, this is truly the pinnacle of Nikon's long-standing lens lineup. Plus, it takes full advantage of the monumental Nikon Z mount for sharp images that you won't forget! Don't settle for anything less than perfect results.

    A 50mm f/1.8 like no other

    Empowered by the Z system's larger mount, shorter flange distance, raw imaging power and video capabilities, the NIKKOR Z 50mm f/1.8 S will redefine your notion of what a 50mm f/1.8 lens can do.

    Unfathomable sharpness

    Experience the clarity and precision of the Nikon NIKKOR Z 50mm f/1.8 S Lens. Clearly see both near and far objects even in low light with this lens' bright maximum aperture of f/1.8, which is equally impressive stopped down to f/2.8. Thanks to its revolutionary Z Mount, you'll get beautiful uniform light from corner to corner of the frame—an effect that will make your image stand out against all the rest! Whether shooting portraits or landscapes, you'll be able to capture memories like never before with this state-of-the-art lens.

    Unwavering autofocus

    Powered by an ultra-quiet stepping motor and enhanced by the additional light gathered by the Z Mount, focusing is fast, silent and accurate. Great for stills; even better for video.

    Aberration free zones

    New levels of aberration control. 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.

    Iconic views

    This multifunctional and ultra-portable lens gives you the flexibility to easily capture whatever moment strikes your fancy, while its lightweight design won't weigh you down. Whether you're shooting a street scene, doing a how-to video, capturing iconic portraits, capturing close ups of delicious food (because who doesn't love that?), or even doing interviews, this easy-to-use lens is the ideal partner for all types of photography. Best of all, with its brilliantly low-light performance, it'll always deliver stellar results in any conditions.

    Beautiful bokeh

    With a vibrant 9-blade rounded diaphragm, this lens helps you create breathtaking portraits with creamy, natural bokeh effects. The large mount and shorter flange distance also helps you achieve amazing images, even when shooting up close. Get the best of both quality and speed with extraordinary sharpness delivered at lightning quick autofocus speeds. Make every photo stand out with beautiful transitions between in-focus areas and soft backgrounds.

    Endless video potential

    With its ultra-wide perspective, this advanced lens will take any shot you're looking for to the next level - from interviews and tutorials to product demos and more. Boasting smooth and quiet AF and aperture drives and an advanced design, you won't have to worry about "breathing" or wobbling so you can focus on getting the perfect image every time.

    Shines in low light

    Draws peak performance from a Z camera's game-changing low light capabilities. Captures point-of-light sources like streetlights with uncanny sharpness and minimal spherical aberration.

    The front line of an imaging revolution

    Z lenses, perfectly matched to Z camera bodies, are designed with a sense of consistency that combines reliability and beauty with next-dimension optical performance for freedom in image creation.

    Durable & lightweight

    Extensively sealed against dust and moisture, especially around all moving parts of the barrel. Compact, lightweight and ideally balanced on a Z camera.

    New Customizable Control Ring

    Can be used for manual focusing (default), aperture control (great for iris transitions during video recording) or exposure compensation.

    Dual Detect 5 Axis VR

    The lens is designed to work seamlessly with Z cameras, optimizing their superior in-camera image stabilization system to provide you with up to 5 stops of pitch, roll, yaw, X and Y shake correction while shooting.The NIKKORs' extremely accurate autofocus capabilities keep your images sharp even when shooting handheld or in low light conditions. And when you’re shooting video? Not a problem: the lens also offers Electronic Vibration Reduction (e-VR) so that every shot comes out clear and blur-free. With its fast maximum aperture of f/1.8 and its ability to capture incredibly detailed imagery at both wide-angle and telephoto lengths, this lens is an indispensable piece of kit for any film maker or photographer on the go.
