  • 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 0.16 m and capture the smallest details at 1x life-size 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.
  • Up close & personal:
  • Get as close as 0.16 m 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 life-size 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 life-size 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 (Sold Separately) 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.
