NIKKOR Z 28mm f/2.8


Mighty Little Snapshooter

Like taking walks with your camera? Finding inspiration in everyday life? This is the ultra-compact lens for you. It’s a joy to carry and shoot: one of the smallest, lightest Z primes. It’s versatile: a classic focal length for candid street work. It’s fast: an f/2.8 maximum aperture and dual stepping motors for autofocus. And like all Z lenses, its image quality is next-level.

Product Description

Great On Any Z Camera

On a Full-frame/FX format Z camera, you get a classic 28mm view for street work, architecture, interiors and situational portraits. On a APS-C size/DX format Z camera, you get a 42mm equivalent view for natural snapshots, videos, portraits and more.


Nothing Weighing You Down

The NIKKOR Z 28mm f/2.8 is so compact and lightweight, you’ll forget it’s even there. A compact prime, it doesn’t extend or retract, so it’s always ready. Take it wherever you go as your main walk-around lens or as a lightweight second lens.


Get in Close

With a close focusing distance of 0.63 feet (0.19 meters), NIKKOR Z 28mm f/2.8 rewards you for getting close to your subject. The wide perspective and deep depth of field let you incorporate more background information into your videos and stills


Dim the Lights

The larger Z mount draws even more low-light performance from the wide f/2.8 aperture. Capture the mood of dimly lit situations with clarity and sharpness.


The Multi-Focus Difference

Traditional primes focus by moving one group of lens elements with one motor. The NIKKOR Z 28mm f/2.8 divides that work between two focus groups and two high-speed, ultra-quiet stepping motors moving in sync with each other—a first for a non S-line Z lens. This multi-focus system focuses faster,  but it also reduces distortion at the frame edges and close range scenes.


Customizable Control

The control ring can be customized for the way you shoot. Use it for precise manual focusing or to adjust aperture, ISO or exposure compensation.


Video Savvy

A classic 28mm is an outstanding video lens. The NIKKOR Z 28mm f/2.8 greatly suppresses focus breathing to prevent angle-of-view shifts during recording. Make smooth iris adjustments that create a natural shift in brightness. And all the while, the dual stepping motors are operating in near silence to preserve your audio integrity.
