An iconic 50mm prime, reimagined for the Z system. Sharper across the entire frame. Virtually zero distortion, even when shot wide open. Beautiful bokeh even at short focus distances. Liberating low-light performance. Ultra-quiet focusing. Whether you're shooting stills or videos, 50mm has never looked better.
The sharpness achieved by this 50mm is nothing short of staggering. Z Mount delivers even lighting from the center of the frame to the far edges. No need to stop it down—it's equally sharp at f/1.8 as it is at f/2.8.
Fast, accurate focus
The larger Z Mount delivers more light to a Z camera's powerful PDAF system for extremely high focusing accuracy and speed.
Powered by an ultra-quiet stepping motor and enhanced by the additional light gathered by the Z Mount, focusing is fast, silent and accurate. Great for stills; even better for video.
Abberation free zones
New levels of abberation control. 2 Extra-low Dispersion (ED) and 2 Aspherical (AS) lens elements plus Nano Crystal Coat for virtually zero flare, ghosting, coma or chromatic, spherical and axial aberration, even at the far edges of the frame.
A 9-blade rounded diaphragm and f/1.8 aperture combine with the larger mount and shorter flange distance to produce a stunning round bokeh.
Shines in low light
Draws peak performance from a Z camera's outstanding low light capabilities. Captures point-of-light sources like streetlights with uncanny sharpness and minimal spherical aberration.
New Customizable Control Ring
Can be used for manual focusing (default), aperture control (great for iris transitions during video recording) or exposure compensation.
