A telephoto lens gives you more than just zoom power. Telephoto lenses are great for portraits, they render faces naturally without distortion. They make your subject stand out against a soft, blurry background. They let you fill the frame with interesting compositions. And, yes, they also let you get closer to the action, wildlife, sports, concerts, events and more. The Nikkor Z DX 50-250mm f/4.5-6.3 VR delivers compact, lightweight telephoto capabilities for Z series cameras. Fast, accurate and nearly silent, it's equally adept at videos and stills. As a second lens alongside the Nikkor Z DX 16-50mm f/3.5-6.3 VR, you can cover just about any shooting situation.

Powerful Image Stabilization

At telephoto distances, the smallest camera movements can blur a photo. Video is even less forgiving we're all familiar with shaky smartphone videos. The Nikkor Z DX 50-250mm f/4.5-6.3 VR has the most effective Vibration Reduction (VR) image stabilization system of any Nikkor yet, up to 5 stops*! Your videos will be rock-steady, and your telephoto photos will be sharp and clear.

Professional-Looking Videos

Telephoto lenses are the best way to get cinematic close-ups and shallow depth of field in your videos. Like high-end cinema lenses, the Nikkor Z DX 50-250mm f/4.5-6.3 VR is designed to suppress focus breathing a common occurrence with smartphones that makes videos look amateurish. And both its focusing ring and control ring are virtually silent, so you won't hear any camera noises during recording.

Customized Control

Assign your favourite function to the control ring aperture control (great for iris transitions during video recording), ISO adjustments, exposure compensation or manual focus.
