Nikon Z MC 50mm f/2.8 Macro Lens

Capture even the finest details up close with the Nikon Z MC 50mm f/2.8 Macro Lens. Ideal for spontaneous snapshots, food photography, or exploring the minute details of everyday life, this normal-length macro lens offers a life-size 1:1 maximum magnification along with a minimum focusing distance of 16cm to suit working with close-up subjects.

A bright f/2.8 maximum aperture lets you confidently work in low light conditions and offers increased control over depth of field for isolating subjects and using selective focus techniques. The lens also makes use of a stepping motor for fast, precise, smooth, and quiet autofocus with reduced wobbling, and this quiet drive system makes the lens ideal for use when shooting video.

Edge-to-edge sharpness is excellent, and a rounded nine-blade diaphragm ensures beautiful bokeh and background blur to isolate the subject from the background. ED and aspherical lens elements provide optimal correction of coma and chromatic aberration, and a fluorine coating reduces dirt, water, and smudges from sticking to the surface of the lens.

The lens also doubles as an outstanding portrait lens. The combination of its shallow depth of field and life-size magnification creates a unique, almost three-dimensional effect in your stills and videos.

  • Z-Mount Lens/FX Format
  • Aperture Range: f/2.8 to f/22
  • One ED Element, One Aspherical Element
  • 1:1 Magnification

Express your creative storytelling in new perspectives and incredible detail.

Capturing the micro details

Life-size your subject and draw out its micro details with the lens’s unique capability to reproduce shots with its true magnification ratio of 1:1. With the lens’s short minimum focusing distance of range of 5cm to 16cm, users will be able to get extremely close to the action all while achieving their shot in tack focus with natural smooth bokeh in the background. Let your photo speak a thousand words with its stunning three-dimension expression that will make your subject pop. With superior image quality offered by the lens structure of the NIKKOR Z MC 50mm f/2.8, users will be able to experience edge-to-edge sharpness that delivers clear rendering in every shot. Additionally, achieve suppressed chromatic aberration to effectively minimise colour bleeding and fringing, at any shooting distance, making your photo the talk of the town. Take it anywhere and everywhere - indoors or outdoors from dawn to dusk. Capture sharp, clear and detailed shots and videos with minimal ghosting and flaring when under the sun or with a light source in the frame. Even when challenged with low-light scenes, the maximum aperture of f/2.8 allows for the adjustment of lower ISO and faster shutter speed, minimising image noise and blur from camera shakes. With the versatile 50mm focal length, capture sharp, detailed imagery in a multitude of scenes - up close or at a distance, from the water droplets on a leaf after a dewy morning to the vastness of breath-taking landscapes to express your artistic vision through visual storytelling.

Switch it up with ease

The NIKKOR Z MC 50mm f/2.8 weighs approximately 260g, and 66mm in length, making it easy to carry around for long periods of time and allows for users to take control of every shooting opportunity. Enjoy greater flexibility in attaching a range of filters directly onto the lens such as the 46mm filter to reduce reflection, and accessories such as the SB-R200 Wireless Speedlight and ES-2 Film Digitizer by using a SY-1-62 adapter ring to further illuminate small subjects especially during close-ups. Enhance your macro photography experience with new features of the NIKKOR Z MC 50mm f/2.8 for smooth operability while shooting. Acquire faster focus on your subject with the focus limit switch located on the side of the lens, minimising focusing time as you switch the focus limit switch to the close-up position. Get information of the image reproduction ratio easily and promptly with the new focus distance indicator, colour-coded for better visibility and provides details on the distance from the lens to the subject, when extended.

Designed for extremely quiet operation, made possible with the adoption of the stepping motor (STM), enjoy photographing close-ups of animals and insects without startling them, getting the perfect macro shot with minimal operational sounds.

Beyond the lens

Take it out and about on your adventures with ease of mind under everyday conditions, where the dust- and drip-resistant performance of NIKKOR Z MC 50mm f/2.8 prevents dust and water droplets from entering the lens, or even pollen from sticking onto lens as you get up close during macro photography. In addition to the application of fluorine coat on the front element that provides anti-fouling performance and makes it easier when it comes to cleaning the lenses.
