Overview

NIKKOR Z MC 50mm f/2.8

Set your sights on a new world

50mm is a natural focal length. Similar to our field of vision, it just feels right in so many situations. The NIKKOR Z MC 50mm f/2.8 brings that just-right feeling to the exciting world of macro. Shoot as close as 0.16m and capture the smallest details at 1x lifesize magnification—ideal for spontaneous snapshots, food photography or exploring the small details of everyday life. Or use it as an an everyday lens to enhance foreground/background separation and selective focus. Compact, lightweight and weather-sealed, it's likely to become one of your most prized and versatile lenses.

Key Features:

  • Aspherical Lens
  • Stepping Motor
  • Electromagnetic Diaphragm Mechanism
  • ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) Glass
  • Flourine Coat

Aspherical Lens

A lens with a curved, non-spherical surface. Used to reduce aberrations and enable a more compact lens size. Aspherical lenses minimize coma and other types of lens aberrations, even when used at the widest aperture. They are particularly useful in correcting distortion in wide-angle lenses and help contribute to a lighter, more compact design by reducing the number of standard (spherical) elements necessary. Aspherical lens elements correct these distortions by continuously changing the refractive index from the centre of the lens.


Stepping Motor

NIKKOR Z lenses use a stepping motor for fast, accurate, smooth, quiet autofocus with reduced wobbling. This quiet drive system makes the lenses ideal for use when shooting video.


Electromagnetic Diaphragm Mechanism

An electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism in the lens barrel provides highly accurate electronic diaphragm or aperture blade control when using auto exposure during continuous shooting. With conventional D/G type lenses, the diaphragm blades are operated by mechanical linkage levers.


ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) Glass

An optical glass developed by Nikon that is used with normal optical glass in telephoto lenses to obtain optimum correction of chromatic aberrations.


Fluorine Coat

Photographers need gear that can withstand the elements. Nikon’s fluorine coat effectively repels dust, water droplets, grease or dirt, ensuring easy removal even when they adhere to the lens surface. Nikon’s fluorine coat endures a high frequency of lens surface wiping and its anti-reflective effect also contributes to the capture of clear images.
 

Up close & personal

Get as close as 0.16m to highlight the smallest details. Exciting new possibilities open at this distance—frame-filling views that reveal hidden textures, shapes and details, all in a natural-feeling 50mm perspective.

Optimal optics

NIKKOR Z MC 50mm f/2.8's AF system is optimized for close distances—fast, accurate and virtually silent with suppressed hunting and breathing. Manual adjustments are silky smooth and precise. Flip the Focus Limiter switch and get even more speed and accuracy across a smaller distance range.

Large as life

The key to transporting your viewer to smaller worlds is 1x lifesize magnification. This 1:1 reproduction ratio creates an effect unique to macro lenses. Use it to draw attention, add drama or accurately reproduce small objects and documents.

The beauty of bokeh

Wide open at f/2.8, The NIKKOR Z MC 50mm f/2.8 creates a beautiful soft background blur or bokeh. Create images with dramatic selective focus, background/foreground separation for drawing in your viewer's attention.

More than macro

The NIKKOR Z MC 50mm f/2.8 is also an outstanding everyday and portrait lens. The combination of its shallow depth of field and 1x lifesize magnification creates a unique, almost three-dimensional, effect in your stills and videos. And its compact, rugged design make it a multipurpose workhorse.

Mini to the max

Nikon's unique front-focusing design minimizes the size and weight of the NIKKOR Z MC 50mm f/2.8. This is a wonderful compact, comfortable prime you'll want to leave on your camera.

Real-world ready

Getting close to your subject means sometimes accidentally coming in contact with it. When this happens, the NIKKOR Z MC 50mm f/2.8's nonstick Fluorine coating prevents fingerprints, smudges and grime on the front surface. It's also weather sealed against dust, dirt and moisture, so you can confidently take it anywhere.

The mount that makes the difference

Nikon uses the largest lens mount of any full-frame mirrorless system. It may seem like a small difference, but it's impact is huge. More light capture. Sharper details. Better colors. Less distortion. Lighter lenses.

Stop stopping down

The sweet spot of traditional lenses are often a stop or two from wide open. Not NIKKOR Z lenses. They're just as sharp wide open as they are stopped down.

Edge-to-edge sharpness

NIKKOR Z lenses are as sharp at their edges as they are at their centers. Vignetting and light falloff seen in traditional lenses are virtually nonexistent.

Minimal distortion

NIKKOR Z lenses have conquered many traditional imperfections. The NIKKOR Z MC 50mm f/2.8 uses both Aspherical and Extra-low Dispersion glass elements to virtually eliminate chromatic aberration usually seen in macro close-up shooting.

Keep it clean

Unique dust, dirt and moisture repelling coating. Easy to clean.

Range limiter

Shorten the autofocus range for close distances. Faster, more precise performance.

Front focus = compact

Compact, sturdy design, thanks to a front-focusing system.

Digitize your memories

Attach the optional ES-2 Film Digitizing Adapter Set to the NIKKOR Z MC 50mm f/2.8 and turn your full-frame Z series camera into a high-resolution film digitizer. Bring 35mm film negatives or slides back to life as stunning digital images.
