The NIKKOR Z DX 16-50mm f/3.5-6.3 VR is the smallest and the lightest lens available for the Nikon Z mount. Nikon unveiled its first consumer-grade Z zoom lenses in the form of the Z DX 16-50mm VR and the Z DX 55-250mm VR together with its first DX mirrorless camera, the Nikon Z50. Sporting an all-plastic construction and plastic mounts, these lenses are specifically designed to be as small and as lightweight as possible, while taking advantage of the short flange distance of the Z mount.
Optically, the lens is comprised of 9 elements in 7 groups, four of which are aspherical elements, and one of which is an extra-low dispersion element. Similar to other Nikon Z lenses, the 16-50mm VR comes with a stepping motor, which delivers quiet and fast autofocus performance. Nikon incorporated optical image stabilization into the lens, and it is supposed to compensate camera shake by up to 4.5 stops.
It is important to note that the Nikon Z DX 16-50mm VR is only designed to be used on Nikon’s Z-mount DX mirrorless cameras, such as the Z50. It will not work on Nikon F-mount DSLR cameras. When mounted on full-frame Nikon Z cameras, the image will be automatically cropped by 1.5x.
