DX-format standard zoom lens that easily captures quality images utilizing the high performance of a NIKKOR Z lens concentrated in a compact, light body
Step out with the powerful, portable performance of the NIKKOR Z DX 16-50mm f/3.5-6.3 VR.
This compact, lightweight zoom lens is essential for those who demand portability without compromising image quality. From dynamic street photography to picture-perfect portraits, this lens thrives with easy-to-use zoom range and intuitive features. Wave goodbye to blurry images with high level Vibration Reduction (VR) that reduces camera shake, no matter the scene. If you’re in the mood for movie-making, quiet operation and exceptional operability make capturing high-quality videos a breeze.
Take the NIKKOR Z DX 16-50mm f/3.5-6.3 VR anywhere your inspiration leads you. Taking up very minimal weight in your bag, the NIKKOR Z DX 16-50mm f/3.5-6.3 VR weighs in at approximately 135g yet produces intensely rich image quality thanks to its lens elements. A versatile zoom range from 16mm to 50mm excels equally as well with wide-angle photography as it does with medium-telephoto closeups. Catch fleeting moments with ease with the lens’ simple and effective buttonless retractable-lens mechanism.
It may be light-weight and compact, but don’t be mistaken – this lens packs a powerful punch. 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.
Nothing’s worse than capturing what should be a show-stopping photo, and seeing the image is tarnished by unintended blur. Thankfully 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. Of course, not all photography subjects sit still, so if you need to capture something in full-flight, it’s best achieved by activating the ‘SPORT’ mode via your Z 50.
*Based on CIPA Standard: this value is achieved when attached to a DX-format camera with the camera’s VR function set to “NORMAL”, and when zoom is set to the maximum telephoto position.
