Don’t hold back
Thanks to the wide Nikon Z mount, the Nikon Z DX 16-50mm f/3.5-6.3 VR mirrorless lens captures wide-angle to portrait views with more detail, depth, and colour. Show just how stunning the city skyline looks. Nail un-posed group shots, or candid street shots that capture the feeling of the moment. Try it when filming: you’ll be amazed how steady the footage is.
The wide end of the zoom range is tailor-made for shooting in cramped spaces. A minimum focus distance of just 0.2 m lets you focus sharply on close-up details.
From bold expressions to fleeting gestures, you’ll capture brilliant detail even when you shoot in low light. Bokeh is smooth, for beautifully blurred backgrounds.
Movies to love
This lens lets you move from scene-setting wide shots to close-ups with ease. You’ll capture 4K footage that’s sharp and steady, even if you’re filming while walking.
Right here. Right now
Photos or movies, this NIKKOR Z lens excels in the moment. In-lens Vibration Reduction lets you shoot at shutter speeds up to 4.5 stops slower than otherwise possible.¹ You can capture clearer photos as daylight fades, or film without the unwanted effects of camera shake. Focusing is fast and virtually silent.
The silent control ring can be used for key functions including manual focus, aperture control (great for fading in or out during video recording), or exposure compensation.
Never miss a shooting opportunity. The button-free retractable-lens mechanism is quick and easy to use. You simply extend or retract the lens by rotating the zoom ring.
Lens in your pocket
The Nikon Z DX 16-50mm f/3.5-6.3 VR zoom weighs just 135 grams and is flat as a pancake when retracted. When you retract the lens, it locks in place so it won’t extend unexpectedly.
