DX-format telephoto zoom lens that enables the capture of diverse scenes beautifully with a single lens, utilizing a wide zoom range and superior VR effect
Whether your subject is up-close or far away, achieve razor-sharp images across the entire frame with its remarkable resolving power. The large inner diameter and shorter flange focal distance of the Z mount system goes a long way to ensuring powerful optical performance. The NIKKOR Z DX 16-50mm f/3.5-6.3 VR’s built-in optical VR system provides superb blur correction that’s equivalent to a shutter speed of 4.5 stops faster*. This means you can shoot without increasing ISO in low-light conditions – making it ideal for indoor events that require handheld shooting.
Capture high-quality images of distant subjects up to telephoto 250mm, so you can take those fantastic concert shots from all the way at the back! Of course, certain scenarios, such as animals in their natural habitat, require a more subtle approach, and this lens lets you magnify objects from a distance without disturbing them. But this lens doesn’t just thrive on distance, it’s more than capable of capturing stunning portraits. The compression effect can make background elements appear closer and larger than the foreground elements, emphasising the main subject.
Resolution is all-important when it comes to zoom lenses, and the NIKKOR Z DX 50-250mm f/4.5-6.3 VR does not disappoint. It delivers equally sharp resolution for still images and movies, letting you get flexible with your subject matter. Distance does not stand in the way of crisp colours and image sharpness thanks to the inclusion of an Extra Low Dispersion (ED) glass element that reduces colour bleeding and effectively compensates for axial chromatic aberration. The built-in VR effect of the NIKKOR Z DX 50-250mm f/4.5-6.3 VR reduces camera shake, so you do not have to worry about those magical moments being brought down to earth by blurry images. The VR effect is equivalent to a shutter speed effect of 5 stops faster and works in low light conditions without increasing ISO.
The smooth operation of the NIKKOR Z DX 50-250mm f/4.5-6.3 VR significantly reduces the operation noise of the lens, so you can photograph that music festival without the dreaded whirring of a lens as an unintended backing track. The ultra-convenient, customisable control ring lets you dial in your desired focus, aperture, and exposure compensation, so you can focus on the task at hand without fumbling for buttons. Adding to the agility of this easy-to-carry lens, you can retract the lens with its simple buttonless retractable-lens mechanism, and shorten the lens’ length when stored. On top of that, it excels at delivering natural exposure changes, so you can smoothly transition from scene to scene like a pro. Lights, camera, action!
