Nikon announced the production of the Nikkor Z 50mm f/1.2 S constant focal length standard lens, which is compatible with Nikon Z full-frame mirrorless cameras.
As a new addition to the S-Line range, the manufacturer considers “beautiful and smooth bokeh” – blurring the image outside the sharpness zone. It is provided by the “perfect” optical circuit with symmetrical structures before and behind the aperture. Combined with the shallow depth of field provided by the large aperture, this allows you to separate objects from the background and create a pronounced sense of volume and perspective – both in photos and when shooting video.
In addition, the manufacturer notes the fast and accurate operation of autofocus, provided by the application of multiple focus drives. By the way, the Nikkor Z 50mm f/1.2 S is the first interchangeable lens with a maximum aperture of f/1.2 for full-frame digital cameras that uses stepper motors to focus, providing smooth and quiet focusing, which is especially popular in movie shooting. The lens is protected from dust and splashes.
