Nikon NIKKOR Z 50mm f/1.8 S Overview

By B&H Photo's

A compact, well-versed prime, the NIKKOR Z 50mm f/1.8 S from Nikon offers a normal-length field of view along with a bright f/1.8 maximum aperture. The comfortable perspective pairs with the f/1.8 design to suit working in difficult lighting conditions as well as offers increased control over depth of field. The optical design includes two aspherical elements and two extra-low dispersion elements, which greatly reduce both spherical and chromatic aberrations for increased sharpness and clarity. Both Nano Crystal and Super Integrated Coatings are used, too, to suppress flare and ghosting for greater color fidelity and higher contrast.

In terms of handling, a stepping motor provides quick, quiet, and precise autofocus performance along with full-time manual focus override to suit both stills and video applications. Additionally, a programmable control ring can be set for intuitive adjustment over a variety of camera and exposure settings.

Prime normal-length lens is designed for FX-format Z-mount mirrorless cameras.
Bright f/1.8 maximum aperture suits working in difficult lighting conditions and also offers increased control over depth of field for isolating subjects and working with selective focus.
Two aspherical elements are used to reduce spherical aberrations and distortion in order to realize sharp imagery with accurate rendering.
Two extra-low dispersion elements greatly reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations in order to produce greater clarity and color rendering.
A Nano Crystal Coat, along with a Super Integrated Coating, has been applied to lens elements to minimize surface and internal reflections for a marked reduction in lens flare and ghosting.
Stepping motor delivers impressively smooth, quiet, and fast autofocus performance that is well-suited to both stills and video applications. Full-time manual focus override is also possible and an internal focusing design is used, where only the internal lens groups are moved during focusing, to maintain the overall length of the lens during use and to promote faster focusing speeds.
Programmable control ring can be used to intuitively adjust a variety of camera and exposure settings.
Specialized electromagnetic aperture mechanism provides greater exposure control stability that is especially beneficial when working with fast continuous shooting rates.
Rounded nine-blade diaphragm promotes a pleasing out of focus quality that benefits the use of shallow depth of field and selective focus techniques.
Dust- and moisture-resistant lens barrel benefits the lens' use in inclement conditions.

Nikon NIKKOR Z 50mm f/1.8 S Reviews

Brilliant Prime lens. Most certainly essential!

By Bryan

I was hesitant at first considering I'd seen such expensive weather sealed lenses, yet I gave this Nikon a shot and am blown away by the quality. I've set myself upon exploring the pedestrian infrastructure of my direct surroundings and have yet to travel far from home, so please enjoy these limited examples from my Nikon Z6ii.

Great Lens!

I love having a fast 50mm lens for portraits and other types of photography. I am always attracted to the fastest lens possible, which is inevitably out of my price range. This lens is of great value. I recommend highly for the Z-family of bodies.

Outstanding Glass

This lens is tack sharp in both FX and DX mode on my Z& II. Typical outstanding NIKKOR glass and the fantastic B&H service is an unbeatable combination.

Excellent Prime Lens

This lens produces high quality extremely crisp photos. It is larger and heavier than the 50mm lens I used with my Nikon DSLR. However, the performance is outstanding and I would highly recommend this lens as a prime lens for a Z6 or Z7.

Excellent sharp lens

This is no ordinary 'nifty fifty.' I have found no issues with this lens except for maybe the price but it's arguably justified by the performance.
