A COMPACT AND LIGHTWEIGHT BODY THAT EASILY FITS IN YOUR BAG

This lens with a length of only 51-mm/2.1-in. and weight of only approx. 195 g/6.9 oz., employing a button-less retractable lens mechanism, realizes the light and compact design, letting you take it anywhere without hesitation. It supports capture of images during travel and daily snapshots much more comfortably, as it will not tire you even if you hold it for a long time.

OPTIMAL ZOOM COVERAGE FOR DIVERSE SCENES AND SUBJECTS

Covers a convenient zoom range from wide-angle 24 mm to standard 50 mm. You can shoot a wide variety of scenes and subjects from vast landscapes, snapshots, pets, portraits and tabletop shots to close-ups of flowers and jewelry. The NIKKOR Z 24-50mm f/4-6.3 allows you to change composition comfortably by rotating the zoom ring, utilizing the constant minimum focus distance of 0.35 m throughout the entire zoom range.

HIGH IMAGE QUALITY OF NIKKOR Z REALIZED DESPITE BEING A COMPACT AND LIGHTWEIGHT LENS

The NIKKOR Z 24-50mm f/4-6.3 achieves superb resolution overturning the general perception of the image quality of compact, affordable lenses. Outstanding rendering performance thanks to the large diameter and short flange focal distance of the Z mount is concentrated in a compact body.

 

SUPERIOR RESOLUTION

Thanks to the large diameter and short flange focal distance of the Z mount system, high optical performance is delivered despite a compact design, ensuring high-resolution images even in the peripheral areas of the frame, at all zoom positions.

 

EFFECTIVELY REDUCES COLOR BLEEDING

By employing two ED glass elements, axial chromatic aberration is well compensated, and color bleeding is effectively reduced.

 

BEAUTIFUL BOKEH CHARACTERISTICS

Natural and beautiful bokeh is also one of the advantages provided with the NIKKOR Z 24-50mm f/4-6.3’s superior image quality. You can easily create eye-catching effects in portraits that impressively emphasize the subject or pictures of flowers in which one particular bloom is effectively focused on.

ADVANTAGEOUS FUNCTIONS AND FEATURES FOR MOVIE RECORDING

Usability has been intensively considered not only for still shooting but also for movie recording. Impressive movie performance is realized via the adoption of a variety of features that enable natural and comfortable recording.

 

QUIET OPERATION THAT PREVENTS LENS DRIVE AND OPERATION SOUNDS FROM BEING RECORDED

Employing an STM (stepping motor) in the AF and diaphragm mechanism ensures outstandingly quiet operation. Operation sound is also reduced with a control ring that allows click-less operation, letting you record in quiet situations without worrying about any annoying sounds being recorded.

 

SUPERB OPERABILITY WITH THE CONTROL RING

Smooth operational feel of both the zoom ring and control ring enables natural movie expression by realizing gradual and natural change of angle of view, focus and exposure. A function selected from various options such as focus, ISO sensitivity, aperture and exposure compensation can be assigned on the control ring, which can help achieve more comfortable movie recording and smooth operation.

 

FOCUS-BREATHING REDUCTION

Reduces shifting of the angle of view when adjusting focus, resulting in more natural recording even when the focus point changes, e.g. from the subject in the foreground to the background.

 

STABILIZED EXPOSURES

Enables smooth and stable aperture control that delivers natural exposure changes when recording.

 

CAREFUL CONSIDERATION GIVEN TO DUST- AND DRIP-RESISTANT PERFORMANCE

The NIKKOR Z 24-50mm f/4-6.3 is designed carefully considering dust- and drip-resistant performance with a sealing that prevents dust and water droplets from entering the lens. *Perfect dustproof and waterproof performance is not guaranteed under all conditions.
