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
Distance doesn’t matter with the versatile NIKKOR Z DX 50-250mm f/4.5-6.3 VR.
From a close-up of a street food delicacy to a majestic eagle high in the sky, the remarkable zoom range of the NIKKOR Z DX 50-250mm f/4.5-6.3 VR lets you have ultimate creative freedom and the control to capture moments from afar. This telephoto zoom lens delivers high resolution stills and videos, and its built-in Vibration Reduction (VR) feature ensures crisp clarity, no matter the distance.
RETHINK YOUR RANGE
All photo opportunities are not created equal, so imagine the frustration of being tantalisingly out of range. With the NIKKOR Z DX 50-250mm f/4.5-6.3 VR, you are never too far away – capture high quality images of distant subjects up to telephoto 250mm1, 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.
ALL HAIL SUPERIOR RESOLUTION
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.
IN THE HEART OF THE ACTION
From the high-spirited bustle of a street carnival to an erupting stadium of fervent football fans, sometimes the best photo opportunities call for flinging yourself into the middle of the action. 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 5.0 stops2 faster, the maximum in the history of NIKKOR interchangeable lenses3, and works in low light conditions without increasing ISO. To maximise performance for dynamic shooting, we recommend pairing it with the new Z 50 and setting it on “SPORT” mode.
1Angle of view of the DX-format 50-250 mm lens is equivalent to that of a 75-375mm lens in FX/35mm format.
2Based 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.
