Step back to get more of the view. Move closer to bring out the details—of anything that catches your eye. Superior optics and the f/2.8 rounded 9-blade aperture will put your subject in focus against a smoothly blurred background.
Tack-sharp up close
Patterns and textures. Shapes, forms, and colours. With a minimum focus distance of just 0.16 m, you can achieve sharp focus even when the front of this macro lens is just about 5 cm away from your subject! In-camera VR keeps shots steady.
A fresh perspective
The compact build makes this a perfect walkaround lens, while its light weight comes in handy for taking shots from above. From enticing food photography to top shots of flowers and cobblestone streets, there’s no muscle ache here.
Precise, easy control
Whether outside exploring or at home in your kitchen, this lens makes it easy to delve into macro photography or shoot everyday movie clips. You can control aperture, ISO, and more via the silent control ring, and instantly switch between manual and autofocus via the lens. Near-silent focusing won’t startle any insects or small animals.
From life-size macro shots to more distant views, the NIKKOR Z MC 50mm f/2.8 lets you capture brilliant results in diverse situations. Compact and lightweight, it balances beautifully on both Z series full-frame and DX-format cameras.
