Nikon Z 24-50mm f/4-6.3 Nikkor
Nikon NIKKOR Z 24-50mm f/4-6.3 - Overview
(From Nikon lens literature)
Small Lens. Big Performance.
Nikon Z series has redefined expectations on so many levels, it's no surprise the traditional kit lens is next. Meet the NIKKOR Z 24-50mm f/4-6.3, a full frame, conventional kit lens with unconventional performance. Easy to carry, an absolute thrill to shoot, it covers the sweet spot of the focal length range: 24mm to 50mm. And it does so with clarity, consistency and brightness that's all Z.
Easy to carry. A thrill to shoot.
The NIKKOR Z 24-50mm f/4-6.3 packs big optical performance into the shortest, lightest full frame standard zoom lens in its class*. At its widest, 24mm, it's great for street photography, interiors and landscapes. Zoom in to 50mm and capture beautiful portraits, product images and everyday snapshots.
*As of July 2020; according to Nikon research.
When not in use, the NIKKOR Z 24-50mm f/4-6.3 retracts into itself and is just 51mm long. It's wonderfully balanced on Z series cameras and is also extensively weather sealed against dust and moisture, making it ideal as a walk around, do-anything lens.
Taking advantage of the Z mount, the NIKKOR Z 24-50mm f/4-6.3's large rear element delivers ample light all the way to the edges of a full frame sensor. This makes for bright, even images with exceptional sharpness.
High Contrast, Low Distortion
Three Aspherical lens elements (AS) minimize coma and other types of distortion, especially aberrations caused by shooting at wide apertures. Two Extra Low Dispersion (ED) glass elements reduce color defects and glare for sharper, clearer images with great contrast.
The NIKKOR Z 24-50mm f/4-6.3 uses a fast, quiet stepping motor for autofocusing and diaphragm control, ensuring camera noises never disturb a moment or ruin a video.
No Focus Breathing
By suppressing focus breathing, the NIKKOR Z 24-50mm f/4-6.3 refocuses smoothly during video recording for professional-looking results.
Get as close as 13.7 inches from your subject at any zoom position — great for tabletop photography.
Smooth, click-free iris control
The NIKKOR Z 24-50mm f/4-6.3 delivers smooth, natural exposure changes with automatic exposure control during movie recording. You can also adjust the aperture manually with a click-free control ring for silent iris transitions.
The NIKKOR Z 24-50mm f/4-6.3 is designed to optimize dust- and drip-resistant performance* — with a sealing that prevents dust and water droplets from entering the lens.
*Dustproof and waterproof performance is not guaranteed under all conditions.
Custom Control Ring
The smooth control ring can be set to control focus, aperture, exposure compensation or ISO.
NIKKOR Z lenses use a stepping motor for fast, accurate, smooth, quiet autofocus with reduced wobbling. This quiet drive system makes the lenses ideal for use when shooting video.
ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) Glass
An optical glass developed by Nikon that is used with normal optical glass in telephoto lenses to obtain optimum correction of chromatic aberrations.
A lens with a curved, non-spherical surface. Used to reduce aberrations and enable a more compact lens size. Aspherical lenses minimize coma and other types of lens aberrations, even when used at the widest aperture. They are particularly useful in correcting distortion in wide-angle lenses and help contribute to a lighter, more compact design by reducing the number of standard (spherical) elements necessary. Aspherical lens elements correct these distortions by continuously changing the refractive index from the center of the lens.
Electromagnetic Diaphragm Mechanism
An electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism in the lens barrel provides highly accurate electronic diaphragm or aperture blade control when using auto exposure during continuous shooting. With conventional D/G type lenses, the diaphragm blades are operated by mechanical linkage levers.
A NIKKOR lens in which only the internal lens group shifts during focusing. Thus, IF NIKKORS do not change in size during AF operation, allowing for compact, lightweight lenses capable of closer focusing distances. These lenses will be designated with the abbreviation IF on the lens barrel.
Super Integrated Coating
Nikon Super Integrated Coating is Nikon's term for its multilayer coating of the optical elements in NIKKOR lenses.
Pricing and Availability
In addition to being sold in a kit with the Z5 for $1,699.95, the 24-50mm f/4-6.3 will also be sold on its own at an estimated retail price of $399.95. Availability is slated for August 2020.
