Reach farther. Do more.
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.
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 offers up to 5 stops* of VR image stabilization. Your videos will be rock-steady, and your telephoto photos will be sharp and clear.
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.
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.
An Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass lens element reduces color defects and glare for sharper, clearer images with outstanding contrast.
Assign your favorite function to the control ring—aperture control (great for iris transitions during video recording), ISO adjustments, exposure compensation or manual focus.
NIKKOR Z: The front line of an imaging revolution.
Designed and optimized to take full advantage of the Z system’s larger mount, Z lenses like the NIKKOR Z DX 50-250mm f/4.5-6.3 VR gather substantially more light, providing even illumination and improved sharpness from the center of the frame to the far edges. Autofocusing is fast and quiet. Video recording is clean and smooth with highly minimized focus breathing and reduced wobbling. Intuitive on-lens controls can be customized to your individual shooting style and so much more. Z lenses are designed with a sense of consistency that combines reliability and beauty with next-dimension optical performance for complete freedom in image creation.
