Nikkor Z 50mm f/1.8 S Lens Specifications

Thom's Commentary: This is an exceptional lens with a level of performance Nikon has never before achieved at 50mm f/1.8 (or f/1.4) before (not even close). This lens gets into Zeiss Otus territory. Yes, the 50mm f/1.2 is better, but don't rule out this lens, it's that good, and it's much more compact. Recommended Read Thom's review of the 50mm f/1.8 S lens
