Frame every detail
The superior resolving power of this lens enables every component of a scene to be faithfully reproduced. Capture more detail and reveal truer colours, all the way to the edge—and even when you shoot wide open.
Superior reproduction of point light sources, such as streetlights at night, is achieved by minimising sagittal coma flare. Point light sources appear as fine rounded points, even at the edges of the image.
Two ED glass elements and three aspherical lens elements ensure crisp, brilliant images with rich colour and deep contrast. Peripheral light falloff is controlled to retain brightness across the frame.
Nikon’s anti-reflective Nano Crystal Coat reduces ghosting and flare for greater image clarity, even in backlit conditions. Or when shooting scenes with numerous direct light sources in the frame.
A compelling sense of depth
Smooth, creamy bokeh. Spectacular sharpness. Combined with the nuanced shadows and detailed highlights achieved by your Nikon Z camera, you can create an incredible sense of dimension. Whether you’re shooting photos or movies.
Smooth, silent, precise
AF is smooth and practically silent, which makes this lens ideal for shooting movies as well as stills. The lens’ electromagnetic diaphragm ensures precise exposures during high-speed bursts.
This lens uses in-camera Vibration Reduction to let you shoot at shutter speeds up to five stops slower than otherwise possible.² Capture clearer photos as daylight fades or film scenes without the unwanted effects of camera shake.
The f/1.8 aperture and rounded 9-blade diaphragm enable creamy, natural-looking bokeh. Highlights are reproduced as gentle points. You get beautifully smooth results, even if you stop the aperture down a little.
Shoot exceptional full-frame 4K video footage with beautifully shallow depth of field. This lens gets you closer to gestures that reveal. Eyes that tell. And backdrops that give context.
Quiet on set
The near-silent stepping motor allows the quietest moments to deliver full emotional impact. And with a silent control ring that lets you pull focus with absolute precision, nothing will distract from your tensest scenes.
Focus breathing is all but eliminated, enabling reliable composition of expressive shots. Smooth, stable aperture control delivers natural exposure changes throughout the scene.
Any street. Any weather.
Your Nikon Z camera and this compact prime are built to capture the action of the streets. Every movable part of the lens barrel is sealed to protect from dust and water droplets. A fluorine coating actively repels water, dust, and dirt without compromising image quality.
