Nikon NIKKOR Z 50mm f/1.2 S Lens
Key Features
  • Z-Mount Lens/FX Format
  • Aperture Range: f/1.2 to f/16
  • Two ED and Three Aspherical Elements
  • ARNEO and Nano Crystal Coatings
Built for speed and exacting sharpness, Nikon's NIKKOR Z 50mm f/1.2 S is a fast, normal-length prime featuring advanced optics and a bright design to suit everything from available-light portraiture to selective-focus documentary subjects. The f/1.2 maximum aperture excels in difficult lighting conditions and offers impressive control over depth of field to help isolate subject matter against a blurred background. A series of extra-low dispersion and aspherical elements also help to achieve high sharpness, notable clarity, and accurate rendering while ARNEO and Nano Crystal Coats, as well as a Super Integrated Coating, suppress flare, ghosting, and surface reflections for improved contrast and color fidelity.
