Beyond The Normal!

Ever since Nikon launched the Z-series mirrorless Full-Frame cameras, we have been waiting for the normal lens for this series.

Ever since Nikon launched the Z-series mirrorless Full-Frame cameras, we have been waiting for the normal lens for this series. The Nikkor Z 50 mm f/1.8 S lens is finally here, and we have put it through its paces.

Design and Build Quality

The Nikkor Z 50 mm f/1.8 S is not very light, but balances well with the Z-series cameras. The base is made of metal, while the rest is engineered plastic. The lens is sealed against dust and moisture, with emphasis on all moving parts of the barrel. It has a back glass that seals all internal moving elements against dust and water ingress. In place of the manual focus ring, the lens incorporates a control ring.

The lens has dimensions of 76 mm (dia) x 86.5 mm and weighs 415 g.
