NIKKOR Z lenses. Faster. Quieter. Sharper. The ultra-wide Nikon Z mount enables compact lenses that can take in more light across the entire frame. Stills or movies, bright is brighter, depth is deeper, and sharpness is all the way to the edge.

NIKKOR Z. Decades of redefining lens design, at your fingertips.

The ultra-wide Nikon Z mount enables your NIKKOR Z lens to capture more light across the entire frame. Combined with the short distance between mount and sensor, light fall off at the edges of the frame is significantly reduced. The result is new possibilities for detail and nuance—all the way to the edge.

The Z series mirrorless system, built around the incredible Z mount, was designed to continuously evolve to keep pace with future advancements in the imaging technology.



A new dimension in optical performance.

High resolution

The astounding resolution of S-Line lenses provides incredibly sharp and accurate texture reproduction without colour fringing and artefacts.

Superb point-image reproduction

Point light sources in night photography tend to fan out and become unnatural. S-Line lenses are designed to reproduce point light sources more accurately for natural looking shots and improved bokeh characteristics.

Dreamy bokeh

Beautifully blurred backgrounds naturally direct your viewer's eyes to the main subject. The nine rounded aperture blades of S-Line lenses give defocused points of light a soft, round consistent shape.

Reduced focus breathing

Focus breathing is a slight shift in the lens's viewing angle that can occur when adjusting focus. This effect can sometimes be jarring, especially during video shooting. S-Line lenses all but eliminate focus breathing for a consistent composition as you shift focus.

Advanced lens features optimised for video

Many NIKKOR Z lenses feature advanced functionality to enhance movie recording and ensure smooth, quiet operation. Minimised focus breathing. Smooth diaphragm control. A customizable control ring and more.

Dust and Drip Resistant

Extensively sealed to keep dust and moisture out, especially around all moving parts of the lens barrel, for worry-free durability.

Strict Quality Control

S-Line lens build quality is second to none and rigorously tested to ensure high performance and uniform precision. Whichever S-Line model you may choose, you can absolutely trust its reliability.

Well-balanced, high-performance lenses

Besides S-Line lenses, Nikon also offers a more affordable gateway into the ever-growing NIKKOR Z line-up while still retaining all the advantages of the monumental Z mount and adhering to NIKKOR's exceptionally high image quality standards.

The Z mount Advantage Carries On

NIKKOR Z lenses other than S-Line lenses feature the same large-diameter Z mount as their S-Line counterparts. More light, exceptional resolution and clarity throughout the entire frame.

Compact Convenience

High quality NIKKOR Z lenses without the S-Line classification offer an even more compact and lightweight barrel design, making them convenient inclusion to your bag.

More light. More possibilities.

This is just the beginning. The family of NIKKOR Z lenses is set to expand.


Breakthrough engineering

With its staggeringly large 55 mm inner diameter and impressively shallow 16 mm flange distance, the revolutionary Z mount has opened the doorway to a new dimension of optical performance. Unrivalled image quality. Faster apertures. Unique focal lengths. And new opportunities in photographic expression.

Proven Nikon lens technology

NIKKOR Z lenses are born from over 80 years of expert optical manufacturing and innovation and utilize some of Nikon's most advanced lens technologies.

ARNEO Coating

An anti-reflective coating developed by Nikon and used in conjunction with Nano Crystal Coat to further reduce ghost and flair effects caused by incident light entering the lens vertically. This allows for the outstandingly clear capture of images even when a light source is located within the frame.

Nano Crystal Coating

An anti-reflective coating developed by Nikon that virtually eliminates internal lens element reflections across a wide range of wavelengths. Nano Crystal Coat solves ghost effects caused by red light and effectively reduces ghost and flare caused by light entering the lens diagonally.

Fluorine Coating

Photographers need gear that can withstand the elements. Available in some S-Line lenses, Nikon's Fluorine Coat repels dust, water droplets, grease and dirt, ensuring easy removal even when they adhere to the lens surface. Its anti-reflective effect also contributes to the capture of clear images.

Aspherical lenses

Aspherical lenses have a curved, non-spherical surface to 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.

ED (Extra-low dispersion) glass

This specialised glass is able to better focus the entire spectrum of colour, nearly eliminating chromatic aberrations that occur in ordinary glass lenses. ED glass lenses produce remarkably sharp, high contrast images even with fast lenses at maximum aperture.

Advanced AF accuracy

Every NIKKOR Z lens delivers incredibly precise focusing accuracy, crucial for the maximised resolving power of Z series.

Some NIKKOR Z lenses incorporate an all-new multi-focusing system, consisting of two AF drive units precisely synchronised to deliver fast, accurate autofocusing, minimize focus breathing in video applications, and enable high-resolution images with minimal aberration to be captured even in close-up shots.

A powerful, ultra-quiet stepping motor (STM) provides fast, responsive and highly precise autofocus control while ensuring high optical performance.

The mechanics of focus acquisition are optimised for the application of each NIKKOR Z lens. In Internal Focusing (IF) lenses, only the internal lens group shifts so the lens can maintain its size allowing closer focusing distance. In Rear Focusing (RF) lenses, only the rear lens group moves for focusing. This makes autofocusing operation smoother and faster.

Smooth and stable aperture control

Rounded diaphragm

The rounded aperture blades of NIKKOR Z lenses give defocused points of light a soft, round consistent shape. Plus, the transition from tack-sharp foreground to dreamy background is smooth and natural.

Electromagnetic control

An electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism in the lens barrel provides highly accurate electronic diaphragm or aperture blade control when using auto exposure during high-speed continuous shooting.

Optimal video performance

NIKKOR Z lenses are designed to be at home on any shoot. Adjust focus with virtually no shift in the angle of view (known as focus breathing); experience smooth aperture, focus or exposure control via the S-Line's signature control ring and near-silent autofocus.

Enhanced build and reliability

Control ring

The wide, knurled control ring allows exact, intuitive operation. When shooting in AF mode, you can assign exposure-compensation settings to the control ring. When shooting in Manual Focus, the control ring can be used as a focus ring. Focus shifts according to how quickly or slowly you turn the ring, making precision work and filming close-ups easier.

M/A (Manual-priority Auto) mode

Simply by rotating a focus ring, M/A (Manual-priority Auto) mode allows you to switch from autofocus to manual with virtually no time lag. This makes it possible to seamlessly switch to fine manual focusing while looking through the viewfinder.


Extensively sealed to keep dust and moisture out, especially around all moving parts of the lens barrel, for worry-free durability.

OLED Info Panel

An OLED information display panel lets you quickly confirm aperture, focus distance, exact focal length, and depth of field right on the lens.


The button-free retractable-lens mechanism used on zoom lenses is quick and easy to use, and ensures lenses take up minimal space when not in use. You simply extend or retract the lens by rotating the zoom ring.

Your lens, your vision

Make the most of your NIKKOR Z lens with dedicated accessories. From filters to correct and enhance light to teleconverters that extend the reach of telephoto lenses.

Z Teleconverters

Want to extend your reach without carrying a second lens? Nikon Z teleconverters are an easy way to get more reach from compatible NIKKOR Z lens, and they blend seamlessly with the look of your camera. Simply attach to your lens first before attaching to your camera’s Z mount.
