A telephoto lens gives you more than just zoom power. Telephoto lenses are great for portraits—they render faces naturally without distortion. They make your subject stand out against a soft blurry background. They let you fill the frame with interesting compositions. And yes they also let you get closer to the action—wildlife sports concerts events and more. The NIKKOR Z DX 50-250mm f/4.5-6.3 VR delivers compact lightweight telephoto capabilities for Z series cameras. Fast accurate and nearly silent it's equally adept at videos and stills. As a second lens alongside the NIKKOR Z DX 16-50mm f/3.5-6.3 VR you can cover just about any shooting situation. Z 50 and NIKKOR Z DX 50-250mm f/4.5-6.3 VR photo of a woman on a skateboard
Powerful Image Stabilization
At telephoto distances the smallest camera movements can blur a photo. Video is even less forgiving—we're all familiar with shaky smartphone videos. The NIKKOR Z DX 50-250mm f/4.5-6.3 VR has the most effective Vibration Reduction (VR) image stabilization system of any NIKKOR yet up to 5 stops*! Your videos will be rock-steady and your telephoto photos will be sharp and clear.
*As of October 10 2019. 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.
Telephoto lenses are the best way to get cinematic close-ups and shallow depth of field in your videos. Like high-end cinema lenses the NIKKOR Z DX 50-250mm f/4.5-6.3 VR is designed to suppress focus breathing—a common occurrence with smartphones that makes videos look amateurish. And both its focusing ring and control ring are virtually silent so you won't hear any camera noises during recording.
Precision Autofocus The NIKKOR Z DX 50-250mm f/4.5-6.3 VR uses a blazing fast nearly silent stepping motor for autofocusing and it performs brilliantly with Z series' Eye AF to keep focus right where you want it.
High Contrast An Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass lens element reduces color defects and glare for sharper clearer images with outstanding contrast.
Customized ControlAssign your favorite function to the control ring—aperture control (great for iris transitions during video recording) ISO adjustments exposure compensation or manual focus.
