Nikon is expanding its portfolio of full format lenses for its mirrorless Z-series. With the Nikkor Z 50 mm 1:1.2 S, an extremely fast standard focal length is now available. The optical construction consists of 17 lenses and 15 groups, including 2 ED glass and 3 aspherical lenses.
The dimensions are 1,090g at 89.5 mm x 150 mm. The filter diameter is 82mm and the aperture consists of 9 lamellas. Nikon specifies the minimum focusing distance as 45cm. In addition, the new Nikkor Z 50 mm 1:1.2 S has a freely assignable function key and an OLED display on which recording parameters can be read.
Perhaps even more exciting for film-makers is the newly introduced wide-angle zoom NIKKOR Z 14-24 mm 1:2.8 S. The tube consists of an aluminum construction which makes the new wide-angle zoom especially light and robust. Furthermore Nikon points out a complex sealing against dust and humidity.
An interesting aspect for film producers is Nikon's statement that the new NIKKOR Z 14-24 mm 1:2.8 S should work almost without focusbreathing or shifting of sharpness when zooming (parfocal).
The NIKKOR Z 14-24 mm 1:2.8 S consists of a total of 16 lenses in 11 groups (including 4 ED glass lenses, 3 aspherical lenses) and weighs 650 grams with dimensions of 88.5 mm × 124.5 mm. The aperture consists of 9 lamellae.
The closest focusing distance is 28cm and the lens hood has a 112mm screw filter.
