The Z 50 is Nikon's first APS-C size (Nikon DX-format) mirrorless camera, inheriting its design and operability, reliability, and future possibilities as a mirrorless system from the Nikon Z 7 and Nikon Z 6. Further improving on those characteristics and condensing them into a compact, lightweight, and durable body capable of superior rendering capabilities and rich power of expression.
The NIKKOR Z 58mm f/0.95 S Noct serves as the symbol of the superior optical performance achieved with NIKKOR Z lenses. It takes advantage of the superior design flexibility made possible by the combination of the large-diameter (inner diameter of 55 mm) Z mount and 16 mm flange focal distance to realize an f/0.95 maximum aperture, the fastest (brightest)* in Nikon history.
