The video review on this page that can be watched on desktop or laptop is not completely complimentary. And that is why we have posted it. Maybe the short comings mentioned will not affect you or could be to your advantage. With the price being (so far) VERY expensive, you might like to hold our for better options either from Nikon or the likes of Sigma and/or Tamron.
The NIKKOR Z MC 50mm f/2.8 lets you capture a wide range of scenes, from macro photography by boldly approaching the subject, which is not possible with ordinary prime lenses, to everyday snapshots utilizing the standard 50-mm focal length. Even the finest details can be depicted by the 1x maximum reproduction ratio and the beautiful bokeh created by the fast maximum aperture of f/2.8.
These features make the subject stand out more with greater depth. From the fine lines of flower petals to the detailed texture of small objects like coffee beans, the NIKKOR Z MC 50mm f/2.8 will show you a different world to that you usually see.
Whether you’re trying to capture the rich biodiversity of your local park or transforming your social feed, enter a world of expression with the NIKKOR Z MC 50mm f/2.8. Get up close and as quiet as you can be with a silent stepping motor (STM) with a minimum focusing distance of 0.16m – making it great for taking images of insects or pets in their natural element without startling them. Its short minimum focus distance and reproduction ratio of 1:1, unique to micro lenses, means you can capture life-sized details that are usually unnoticeable to the naked eye.
With a maximum aperture of f/2.81, enjoy greater image quality, even in dimly lit shooting environments. Its versatile focal length of 50mm allows you to capture a range of photography genres from macro to everyday life.
The NIKKOR Z MC 50mm f/2.8 is great for all of life’s adventures. At about the same weight as a small juice box, at approximately 260g, it’s perfect for photographers who are constantly on the move. Durability is further enhanced from everyday weather conditions with its dust- and drip-resistant2 design. The addition of fluorine coat on the front lens element makes it easy to clean, which is great for nature photography, where pollen or water droplets may foul the lens.
Small and packed with nifty features, the NIKKOR Z MC 50mm f/2.8 comes with a focus limit switch that makes focusing even quicker with a limited search range of 0.16m to 0.3m – great for fleeting moments, such as a bug resting momentarily on a leaf.
Easily check on your reproduction ratio and subject-to-lens distance with the lens’ retractable focus distance indicator to help present your subject in the right size ratio. Expand your options further with the ability to attach 46mm filters directly onto the lens for additional creative options and easily convert film images into digital images with the ES-2 film digitizer adapter via the accessory attachment point.
