The optical design of the Nikon Z lens and its characteristics are completely identical to the E-mount version of the YN50mm F1.8S DF DSM lens for Sony cameras.

The new lens uses an optical structure consisting of 11 lenses in 8 groups and a nano-multilayer coating. According to the manufacturer, this coating can effectively increase light transmission and suppress ghosting and backlight glare. It also reported that a single aspherical lens effectively compensates for a variety of aberrations, and a single low dispersion glass element can solve the dispersion problem.
