The full picture.
Harness the entire view of expansive full frame lenses, and capture over 50% more image area than crop-sensor cameras. Z 5’s 24.3 MP full frame CMOS sensor produces intensively detailed images, lifelike 4K UHD video, ultra shallow depth-of-field and particularly clean low-light shots.
Z 5 is powered by Nikon’s fast, comprehensive EXPEED 6 image processing system. It’s the secret behind the camera’s sensational photo and video quality, autofocus performance, low-light capabilities, distortion control, image clarity, color reproduction and more.
The stability you crave.
Sharpness starts with stability, and Z 5 has one of the best in-camera image stabilization systems available. NIKKOR Z lenses activate 5-axis VR image stabilization-up to five stops of stabilization in up to five directions: yaw, pitch, roll, X and Y. Compatible F-Mount NIKKOR lenses-even those without built-in VR-activate 3-axis VR image stabilization. Great for stills, even better for video.
In the blink of an iris.
Freeze time with shutter speeds as fast as 1/8000 of a second-fast enough to capture moments invisible to the naked eye. When shooting with wide aperture settings for shallow depth-of-field and blurred backgrounds, that speed can also be used to control your shot’s brightness.
Right. In any light.
Creativity doesn’t wait for perfect lighting, so neither does Z 5. Its ISO sensitivity goes all the way up to ISO 51,200 (expandable to ISO 102,400) with superb sharpness, detail and clarity. Keep shooting into the night, and bring a new mood to your style with the drama of low light.
Fully automatic. Totally manual.
Sometimes you need to just point and shoot. Other times you want to fine tune every little detail. Z 5 is up for either challenge, going from fully automatic to totally manual with the turn of a dial.
In can’t miss moments-like weddings, speeches or performances-turn on Silent Mode and capture photo after photo without drawing any attention. This is also great for photographing pets and wildlife.
The eyes say it all.
Great portraits put focus on the eyes. Z 5’s powerful Eye-Detection Autofocus quickly finds your subject’s eyes-humans, cats and dogs alike-and puts them in sharp focus. It even follows them as they move behind objects in the frame.
Z 5’s sensor is practically covered in focus points-273 of them, to be precise. That means wherever your subject is within the frame, there’s almost certainly a focus point locked on them.
Flash of genius.
Z 5 is compatible with Nikon’s Creative Lighting System. Fill in shadows, make subjects stand out, enhance natural light and add artistry with an optional external Nikon Speedlight flash.
Two for the road.
Z 5 includes dual UHS-II SD card slots. Use them together for overflow storage, automatic back up or separating file types like RAW and JPEG or stills and videos.
You see it. You get it.
See your shot clearly through Z 5’s outstanding electronic viewfinder. It activates when you put your eye to it, offering a high-resolution glare-free view of how your shot will actually look-exposure, ISO, white balance and Picture Controls are all visible in realtime.
One mount for all.
Works with Z-Mount lenses.
Built around Nikon’s revolutionary Z mount, Z 5 is compatible with every cutting-edge NIKKOR Z lens, from the highly acclaimed NIKKOR Z 50mm f/1.8 S walkaround prime lens to the telephoto powerhouse NIKKOR Z 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S.
Works with F-Mount lenses.
Attach the optional Mount Adapter FTZ and extend full compatibility to over 90 F-Mount NIKKOR lenses: full frame fisheye lenses, macro lenses, fast primes, super telephoto zooms and everything in between.
Note: Approximately 360 classic F-Mount NIKKOR lenses can be used with varying compatibility.
– NIKKOR Z 24-50mm f/4-6.3 Zoom Lens –
Small Lens. Big Performance.
Nikon Z series has redefined expectations on so many levels, it’s no surprise the traditional kit lens is next. Meet the NIKKOR Z 24-50mm f/4-6.3, a full frame, conventional kit lens with unconventional performance. Easy to carry, an absolute thrill to shoot, it covers the sweet spot of the focal length range: 24mm to 50mm. And it does so with clarity, consistency and brightness that’s all Z.
Easy to carry. A thrill to shoot.
The NIKKOR Z 24-50mm f/4-6.3 packs big optical performance into the shortest, lightest full frame standard zoom lens in its class. At its widest, 24mm, it’s great for street photography, interiors and landscapes. Zoom in to 50mm and capture beautiful portraits, product images and everyday snapshots.
When not in use, the NIKKOR Z 24-50mm f/4-6.3 retracts into itself and is just 51mm long. It’s wonderfully balanced on Z series cameras and is also extensively weather sealed against dust and moisture, making it ideal as a walk around, do-anything lens.
Taking advantage of the Z mount, the NIKKOR Z 24-50mm f/4-6.3’s large rear element delivers ample light all the way to the edges of a full frame sensor. This makes for bright, even images with exceptional sharpness.
High Contrast, Low Distortion
Three Aspherical lens elements (AS) minimize coma and other types of distortion, especially aberrations caused by shooting at wide apertures. Two Extra Low Dispersion (ED) glass elements reduce color defects and glare for sharper, clearer images with great contrast.
The NIKKOR Z 24-50mm f/4-6.3 uses a fast, quiet stepping motor for autofocusing and diaphragm control, ensuring camera noises never disturb a moment or ruin a video.
No Focus Breathing
By suppressing focus breathing, the NIKKOR Z 24-50mm f/4-6.3 refocuses smoothly during video recording for professional-looking results.
Get as close as 13.7 inches from your subject at any zoom position – great for tabletop photography.
Smooth, click-free iris control
The NIKKOR Z 24-50mm f/4-6.3 delivers smooth, natural exposure changes with automatic exposure control during movie recording. You can also adjust the aperture manually with a click-free control ring for silent iris transitions.
The NIKKOR Z 24-50mm f/4-6.3 is designed to optimize dust- and drip-resistant performance* – with a sealing that prevents dust and water droplets from entering the lens.
Custom Control Ring
The smooth control ring can be set to control focus, aperture, exposure compensation or ISO.
NIKKOR Z lenses use a stepping motor for fast, accurate, smooth, quiet autofocus with reduced wobbling. This quiet drive system makes the lenses ideal for use when shooting video.
ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) Glass
An optical glass developed by Nikon that is used with normal optical glass in telephoto lenses to obtain optimum correction of chromatic aberrations.
A lens with a curved, non-spherical surface. Used to reduce aberrations and enable a more compact lens size. Aspherical lenses minimize coma and other types of lens aberrations, even when used at the widest aperture. They are particularly useful in correcting distortion in wide-angle lenses and help contribute to a lighter, more compact design by reducing the number of standard (spherical) elements necessary. Aspherical lens elements correct these distortions by continuously changing the refractive index from the center of the lens.
Electromagnetic Diaphragm Mechanism
An electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism in the lens barrel provides highly accurate electronic diaphragm or aperture blade control when using auto exposure during continuous shooting. With conventional D/G type lenses, the diaphragm blades are operated by mechanical linkage levers.
A NIKKOR lens in which only the internal lens group shifts during focusing. Thus, IF NIKKORS do not change in size during AF operation, allowing for compact, lightweight lenses capable of closer focusing distances. These lenses will be designated with the abbreviation IF on the lens barrel.
Super Integrated Coating
Nikon Super Integrated Coating is Nikon’s term for its multilayer coating of the optical elements in NIKKOR lenses.
