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.
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.
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.
A NIKKOR lens in which only the internal lens group shifts during focusing. Thus, IF NIKKORS do not change in size during AF operation, allowing for compact, lightweight lenses capable of closer focusing distances. These lenses will be designated with the abbreviation IF on the lens barrel.
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.
A Nikon in-lens technology that improves image stability by automatically compensating for camera shake. Lenses that offer VR will feature the abbreviation VR on the lens barrel.
Super Integrated Coating
Nikon Super Integrated Coating is Nikon's term for its multilayer coating of the optical elements in NIKKOR lenses.
The quality you expect
The NIKKOR Z DX 16-50mm f/3.5-6.3 VR is a high-resolution lens that brings out the best in Z cameras. It’s sharp across the entire frame. It captures true-to-life colors and details you can almost touch. And it has a subtle background blur that draws attention to your subject.
Take it wherever you go
So small and light, yet it does so much. Go wide for landscapes, interiors and selfies or zoomed in for portraits and close range shots. When it’s on your shoulder or in your bag, it retracts for protection.
VR keeps it steady
Built-in VR image stabilization counteracts hand-held camera shake for steadier videos and sharper photos. It also lets you shoot stills at slower shutter speeds without causing motion blur.
Your video side-kick
The NIKKOR Z DX 16-50mm f/3.5-6.3 VR covers all the angles—wide establishing shots, medium shots, and close-ups. It’s lightweight design is great for shooting handheld with VR or on a gimble. A high-speed stepping motor powers compatible cameras’ full-time Eye Detection AF in video. The wide-angle zoom is ideal for vlogging, streaming and when using your Z camera as a webcam.
Fast, silent focus
The NIKKOR Z DX 16-50mm f/3.5-6.3 VR uses a blazing fast, nearly silent stepping motor for autofocusing, and it performs brilliantly with Z series' Eye Detection AF to keep focus right where you want it.
Extra-low Dispersion (ED) and Aspherical glass elements reduce color defects for sharper, clearer images with outstanding contrast.
Assign it. Control it
Assign your favorite function to the control ring—aperture/iris control, ISO adjustments, exposure compensation or manual focus.
