All the detail. All the sharpness.

Hone your creative vision with the sharpest, fastest 50mm prime we've ever created. Extraordinary rendering power across the entire frame. Vast f/1.2 maximum aperture. Breakthrough autofocus. Liberating distortion and glare control. Weatherproof build. All empowered by Nikon's revolutionary Z Mount, a system that shines with fast lenses. Dream it, and the NIKKOR Z 50mm f/1.2 S will do it.


Excellence in optics.

The NIKKOR Z 50mm f/1.2 S bears the S-Line designation reserved for premium NIKKOR Z lenses with the most advanced optics, superior performance and finest craftsmanship.


Capture their eyes.

Staring back at you in every photo and video will be clarity, depth and flawless focus. This is a lens designed for maximum impact and image quality. How will it change the way you shoot?


Own the light.

Some of the most difficult—and rewarding—shots involve backlighting. The NIKKOR Z 50mm f/1.2 S excels in these situations. Anti-reflective Nano Crystal Coat (N) and ARNEO (A) coatings virtually eliminate flare, ghosting and coma by suppressing incidental light coming from any direction.


Dramatic depth.

Isolate your subject with crystalline sharpness that gradually falls off into a dreamlike defocus blur. The extremely shallow depth of field of f/1.2 is enhanced by a 9 rounded blade diaphragm, creating an ideal bokeh effect.


Autofocus. Redefined.

Rather than moving one large group of lens elements back and forth, the NIKKOR Z 50mm f/1.2 S's multi-focus system moves two smaller groups half the distance. And rather than using a single powerful—but noisy and battery-draining—ultrasonic motor, the NIKKOR Z 50mm f/1.2 S uses two smaller energy efficient STM stepping motors to provide faster, quieter, more precise AF operation—a first for an f/1.2 lens*.

*Among interchangeable lenses for full-frame (Nikon FX-format) digital cameras with interchangeable lenses with a maximum aperture of f/1.2 available as of September 16, 2020. Statement based on Nikon research.


Silent

In addition to being energy efficient, the NIKKOR Z 50mm f/1.2 S's stepping motors are nearly inaudible. When silence is golden, like shooting stills on a movie or recording video, you can operate without making a sound.


Precise

When shooting at f/1.2, the focal plane is impossibly thin, but the NIKKOR Z 50mm f/1.2 S can handle it. Its AF system locks on and provides fast continuous adjustments to keep your subject in sharp focus.


Fast

With two groups of lens elements moving in precise synchronization, the NIKKOR Z 50mm f/1.2 S is able to focus faster, especially at wide aperture settings where the focal plane is very thin.


Eye-Detect AF. As you wish.

Activate your Z camera's Eye-Detect AF mode and prepare to be amazed. The speed and precision of the NIKKOR Z 50mm f/1.2 S's multi-focus system are put on display as the camera locks on to your subject's eye and tracks it across the frame.


Video gets cinematic.

The NIKKOR Z 50mm f/1.2 S is a video creator's prime. Its exceptional image quality produces stunning 4K footage. Its natural field of view is ideal for interviews, interiors and first-person perspectives. Create beautiful iris transitions across its vast depth of field range with the clickless control ring. As lighting changes, smoothly adjust ISO or exposure to maintain an even shot. Change focus without noticeably affecting the shot's angle of view or causing focus breathing. And because the NIKKOR Z 50mm f/1.2 S operates in near silence, you can use your Z camera's outstanding autofocus during video recording.



No need to check the forecast.

The NIKKOR Z 50mm f/1.2 S is extensively sealed to keep out dust and moisture, especially around the moving parts of the lens barrel. A little water won't hurt a Z camera or lens, so go out and make the most of that rainy day.

The lens is not guaranteed to be dust- and drip-resistant in all situations and under all conditions.


Quick check. Lens info panel.

Quickly confirm focus distance, depth of field and aperture when you're shooting from a tripod or gimbal and can't be behind the camera.
