Nikon NIKKOR Z 50mm f/1.8 S Overview

Complementing the lens itself, the Nikon NIKKOR Z 50mm f/1.8 S Lens with UV Filter Kit from B&H bundles the versatile normal-length prime with a 62mm UV filter.

Nikon NIKKOR Z 50mm f/1.8 S Lens

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.

Chiaro Pro 62mm 98-UVATS UV Filter

The Pro 62mm 98-UVATS UV Filter is one of Chiaro’s highest-rated protective UV filters with 98% light transmission. It’s ideal for photographers of all levels who demand high-quality glass and other essential features for excellent image fidelity and construction.

To achieve 98% light transmission, Chiaro uses highly-polished optical glass, multi-coating, and additional advanced elements that improve the filter’s light transmission. A scratch-resistant coating minimizes scratching of the glass and helps assure that water, oil, dust, and fingerprints are removed with a gentle wipe. Its hard-anodized aluminum filter ring is designed to screw on and off effortlessly, and it is thin to prevent vignetting when used with wide-angle lenses. Side knurling helps assure that you’ll have a firm grip when attaching or removing your filter.

Image quality is what matters most at Chiaro. The company has tested and combined many features and essentials to achieve superior image quality and the highest light transmission. To help take the confusion out of selecting a filter, Chiaro prominently displays the light transmission levels so that you can choose the perfect filter for your lens and photo session.

98% Light Transmission

Protecting your lens doesn't mean you have to lose optical quality. By using highly-polished optical glass and advanced coatings, Chiaro offers a 98% transmission rate, which is an excellent transmission rate for glass. And the company verifies the ratings with ISO certified lab testing.

Resistance Coating

The layers of advanced resistance coating on the filter are designed to resist moderate scratches, and allow you to easily clean your filter. Water beads up and rolls off your filter, and oil and fingerprints can come off with a gentle wipe. Dust and debris won't adhere to the filter and can be removed with a puff of air.

Polished Optical Glass

Glass that's polished to perfection is essential to achieve a high level of light transmission. The optical glass in this Chiaro filter is highly-polished for flatness that ensures excellent optical clarity.


Multi-coating enhances light transmission to the demanding level set for all Chiaro filters. It reduces unwanted internal reflections and ghosting that can compromise your images.

UV Protection

The filter blocks UV light and reduces the bluish cast of daylight that can affect color accuracy, especially at higher altitudes.

Hard Anodized Aluminum Construction

The process of hard anodizing toughens and strengthens the aluminum for a lightweight yet durable filter ring.

Slim Design

Measuring only 3.2mm, this filter is slim enough to use on wide-angle lenses without experiencing vignetting.

Top and Side Knurling

In addition to top knurling, Chiaro added side knurling to better grip the filter when you're attaching and removing it, or when you're stacking filters.

Secure Attachment

It takes two full turns to mount the filter on your lens. This feature will securely hold your Chiaro filter through the most demanding photo shoots.

Front Threads

The front threads on the filter allow you to stack filters by screwing them onto your Chiaro filter.

Nikon NIKKOR Z 50mm f/1.8 S Reviews

Nikkor Z50 mm lens

I bought this lens for my Z50 mirrorless camera. It is lighter than what I currently was using . When I put it on my camera, I couldn't get it to focus. Definitely operator error so I made an appointment to get some virtual assistance. That was the best thing I could have done. now I have a light camera and lens for our future trip to Hawaii.

Incredibly a great lens, at any cost!

I have always been a Fast Glass, this one is Wicked Fast. I have a Nice collection of the FAST Nikon F Mount lens. They are Awesome but these S Series Lens (For this Mirrorless Line) are Smoking fast too...! Even faster 90% of the time!

I never worry about shooting at f1.8

This lens is sharp wide open, across the entire frame, and doesn't suffer from the chromatic aberration of my older Nikkor 50mm f/1.4D. The auto focus is also a big plus - it's fast, quiet and doesn't breath too much. This lens pairs nicely with my Z 85mm f/1.8. Both seem to be equally sharp wide open which means I don't have to stop down to get a sharp image or prevent color fringing. I enjoy shooting long exposures at night, often against lights of varying intensities and angles and the lens handles bright lights well. I have no complaints. It's one of the sharpest lenses I've used - right there with the Z85mm.

Sharpest Nifty Fifty

50mm lens is a great lens to have in your bag. Purchased this as I wanted to see if the Z-lens was sharper that my old 50mm 1.4. I was astonished with the sharpness from corner to corner with this new 50mm 1.8. Sharper than the 1.4 without a doubt. In time I will move over to mirrorless all together. The Nikon Z cameras with the larger flange opening makes the new Z line what it is. Sharpe!!

The type of quality produced by this 50mm is amazing having paired it with my new Z7 II. I can't stress enough how great this lens is and at a very attractive price at that! Definitely a must have as far as my lens loadout.

As Sharp As It's Reputed to Be

By Todd

Yep, more expensive than its F-mount predecessor. Yep, more than worth it. Solid, weather-proofed, laser-sharp, beautiful bokeh. Even though I purchased the Z 50 f/2.8 macro after this lens, I still can't regret getting this one for the really low light that I sometimes am in, and it complements the Z 20 f/1.8 and Z 85 f/1.8 beautifully, especially for an indoor, tripod-less kit. (As an added benefit, these faster lenses really assist the Z 5 focusing in super-dim conditions, and that camera is SUCH a deal/steal!)

Very sharp, beautiful bokeh and outstanding colors. Perfect portrait lens. Matches great with my Z6.

what is the best type of lens for night sky pictures?
Asked by: Jim
Assuming you mean of the Milky Way, a prime lens around 24-35 mm for a full-frame camera. The lens needs a wide aperture to reduce ISO and good imaging performance wide open. Why prime? They are faster. Your enemy is time. The stars start to streak (meaning that their streaking is visually obvious) with greater than 30-45 second exposures. The wider the lens, the longer the exposure can be. If you are taking an image of something smaller, say a comet, then a longer focal length works. I took photos of the recent comment with 35 and 50 mm lenses.

Yes! This is an incredible lens for the Z50. It will have an equivalent focal length of 75mm due to the crop factor, but there won't be any significant changes otherwise.
