In stock
The smallest, lightest NIKKOR Z lens, captures the sweet spot of the zoom range for street photography, candid portraits, landscapes and more.
See the big picture with the smallest of lenses. The absolute smallest NIKKOR Z lens—the smallest DX format lens ever, in fact—the NIKKOR Z DX 16-50mm f/3.5-6.3 VR covers the sweet spot of the zoom range, letting you capture street scenes and landscapes as easily as portraits and close-ups. It has powerful Vibration Reduction (VR) image stabilization to keep your videos steady and your photos sharp. It focuses quickly and silently and surpresses focus breathing—ideal for recording videos and high-speed action. And when not in use, it retracts into itself for a compact profile and added protection.
