Pin-sharp eyelashes set against elaborate bokeh. Iconic views with finely detailed point light sources. The Nikon Z 50mm f/1.2 S’ incredible resolving power gives you a versatile brush with which to paint with the light. From magnetic portraiture to atmospheric movie scenes, realise your vision in pristine detail.

Unwavering, razor-sharp autofocus

Creating ultra-high-resolution photography? This full-frame mirrorless lens focuses quickly, smoothly, and ever so quietly. Your area of focus is rendered sharply, even when shooting at close distances or with shallow depth of field.

Superb aesthetic control in any light

The f/1.2 maximum aperture opens up your possibilities when available light is in short supply. If shooting backlit subjects, Nikon’s anti-reflection ARNEO and Nano Crystal Coat combat ghosting and flare for remarkably clean images.

Primed for any location

Wherever your shoot takes you, this lens’ superior build offers worry-free durability. All moving parts of the lens barrel are extensively sealed to keep dust and moisture out, and there is rubber sealing around the metal lens mount.

Cinematic depth

When your vision is best realised in video, this 50 mm prime lens gives you vast control over depth of field. From shorts to campaigns, footage can look powerfully cinematic. Focus breathing is virtually non-existent, and smooth exposure control ensures steady transitions between interiors and exteriors.

Minimal focus breathing


Focus breathing is countered so you can adjust focus without noticeably affecting the angle of view.

Perfectly smooth rack focus


Focus shift is countered so you can smoothly transition between points of focus, even when shooting at close distances.


Quiet and precise, the silent control ring adjusts with just the right amount of torque. Use it for aperture, ISO, exposure compensation—or for manual focusing.


The OLED information-display panel ensures you won’t miss the details that count. Quickly and easily confirm aperture, focus distance, ISO, and depth of field.


You can assign different functions to the lens’ Fn button. Deftly control shooting parameters, including metering, display zooming, bracketing, and more.
