Deal | 36% off Nikon Nikkor Z 50mm f/1.8 S prime lens for Nikon Z mount on Amazon, Best Buy, B&H Photo ↺
The nifty fifty — a fast prime lens — is an essential part of any photographer's kit. Nikon's Nikkor Z 50mm f/1.8 S is a versatile 50 mm option for Z mount cameras, featuring a weather sealed body and sharp image quality. At 36% off, the Nikkor Z 50mm f1/8 S comes in at US$526.95 — its lowest price of 2023 so far.
The 50 mm lens is generally considered closest to the human eye in terms of field of view, distortion, and framing. It also makes for a balanced focal length. The Nikon Nikkor Z 50mm f/1.8 S is specifically designed for Nikon's Z mount system and features just about everything you might want for day to day portrait, street, travel, and event photography.
Nikon's Nikkor Z 50mm f/1.8 S lacks image stabilisation, but most Z mount cameras these days fortunately have IBIS to compensate for that. The lack of IBIS allows for a more compact and lightweight lens, though — a good thing, since the robust design, quiet stepper motor driver, and programmable control ring seem to add a bit of weight. The Nikkor Z 50mm f/1.8 S weighs in at 415 g (14.7 oz), putting it on the heavier side of things.
This lens is highly rated on Amazon for its superb image quality, while the relatively compact (86.5 mm (3.4") length by 76 mm (3") diameter) make it relatively easy to cram into a small bag or just leave on the body for easy access.

My interest in tech started in high school, rooting and flashing my Motorola Defy, but I really fell down the rabbit hole when I realised I could overclock the i7 930 in my Gigabyte pre-built PC. This tinkering addiction eventually lead me to study product design in university. I think tech should improve the lives of the people using it, no matter the field. I like to read and write about laptops, smartphones, software and trends in technology.
