Set your sights on a new world.
50mm is a natural focal length. Similar to our field of vision, it just feels right in so many situations. The NIKKOR Z MC 50mm f/2.8 brings that just-right feeling to the exciting world of macro. Shoot as close as 0.16m and capture the smallest details at 1x lifesize magnification—ideal for spontaneous snapshots, food photography or exploring the small details of everyday life. Or use it as an an everyday lens to enhance foreground/background separation and selective focus. Compact, lightweight and weather-sealed, it's likely to become one of your most prized and versatile lenses.
Large as life.
The key to transporting your viewer to smaller worlds is 1x lifesize magnification. This 1:1 reproduction ratio creates an effect unique to macro lenses. Use it to draw attention, add drama or accurately reproduce small objects and documents.
The beauty of bokeh.
