NIKKOR Z 50mm f/1.2 S – Nikon’s Fastest 50mm

‘NIKKOR Z 50mm f/1.2 S’ is a member of Nikon’s S series for full-frame mirrorless cameras. According to Nikon, this is the ‘sharpest’ and ‘fastest’ 50mm prime they have ever built to date. Of course their NIKKOR Z 58mm f/0.95 S Noct is faster than this, but it is not 50mm.

Nikon was blamed so much for not including auto-focus in their 58mm f/0.95 S Noct. This time they have obviously included auto-focus in NIKKOR Z 50mm f/1.2 S.
