  • Four Extra-Low Dispersion Elements
The Noct is back and faster than ever with the Nikon NIKKOR Z 58mm f/0.95 S Noct. Made possible by the wider design of the Z mount, this renowned and unique lens has returned with an updated design specifically for the Z-series of mirrorless cameras. Characterized by its advanced optical design and exceedingly bright f/0.95 maximum aperture, this lens excels in low-light conditions and also affords extreme control over depth of field for isolating subject matter. Like its Noct predecessor, this lens has a manual focus design for fine-tuned control that makes it suitable for both photo and video applications. Its optical design incorporates a large-diameter ground aspherical element, which reduces spherical aberrations and distortion in order to achieve high sharpness and accurate rendering. An ARNEO coat, along with a Nano Crystal Coat and fluorine coat, has also been applied to individual elements to greatly suppress flare and ghosting for clean, color-accurate imagery when working in strong lighting conditions.

for portraits shot handheld f.95 indoor in ambient lighting would the shooter use bracketing to nail the focus?
Asked by: Joseph
Critically focusing this lens is no different than doing the same on an 85mm f/1.2 (handheld, tripod or camera stand doesn't matter) when shooting wide open and focusing on a small emphasized critical areas (e.g. eyes, eye lashes, lips). It's actually very common to resort to, or only use manual focus in many razor depth-of-field situations autofocus takes too long to (or doesn't know exactly what you want to focus on, e.g. eyes or eye lashes) achieve such minute focus; so slowly racking the focus ring across the intended focus area coupled with a 1 second burst usually does the trick, especially when shooting for pay under limited time constraints (the long focus throw many manual focus lenses aids in this respect - a shorter throw would be ridiculously awful for minute focusing, which is the entire point of a long throw). This (very fine focusing) is common place, It's neither rocket science nor extremely hard to do. Even at f/0.95, when standing at full-body distances from the subject, the thin depth-of-field isn't so thin that getting focus proves a particularly hard feat. Manual focus skills are something that generally have to be learned, and with experience one can focus confidently with relative ease.. even at f/.095 Also when shooting video, I'm not usually concerned with autofocus irrespective of what lens I'm using - manual focusing for video is commonplace. The issue isn't the ultra thin depth of field as much as it is a deficit in manual focusing skills by photographers who are out of their element doing so.

Would this work well on a Z50 or a Z7 in DX mode?

Asked by: Gabriel
Yes, it would work well, but since the DX mode uses less than the FX mode, this lens would work like an 87mm lens, once you figure the crop aspect (1.5x). would be basically portrait lens!
