Broaden Your Perspective with NIKKOR Z 28mm f/2.8

Make the most out of the incredibly compact mirrorless system with the first-of-its-kind in the NIKKOR Z line-up

Sydney Australia – 18 November - Nikon Australia introduces the NIKKOR Z 28mm f/2.8, the latest addition to the NIKKOR Z lens line-up that is the first-of-its-kind as the smallest and lightest [1] prime lens for full frame (Nikon FX-format) mirrorless cameras, perfect for everyday snapshots.

Small and sleek, the wide-angle prime lens packs a punch with the superior optical performance of sharpness and clarity that NIKKOR Z lenses deliver with the Z mount. The combination of versatility with fast, precise, and quiet autofocusing to capture both stills and videos, and the durability of its dust-and drip-resistance performance [2], lets a creator take the NIKKOR Z 28mm f/2.8 anywhere.

“The NIKKOR Z 28mm f/2.8 is the perfect introductory prime lens for anyone looking to shoot expansive scenes and open up wider possibilities. Designed with a satin finish, the lens offers increased operability and handling for hobbyist photographers and is a great addition for those who love to capture the vast landscapes the world has to offer” said John Young, General Manager, Marketing for Nikon Asia.


NIKKOR Z 28mm f/2.8 Primary Features

A Perfect Fit

Striking the perfect balance by being incredibly compact and lightweight, the NIKKOR Z 28mm f/2.8 prime lens is almost as light as an average smartphone and as long as a credit card, weighing approximately 155g and 43mm in length respectively. Harnessing powerful performance, the lens and its non-retracting mechanism allows users to make the most of its compact size.

The NIKKOR Z 28mm f/2.8 is perfect for capturing stills and videos in wider perspectives instantly, with the wide angle view of 28mm, and allowing users to get up close and personal to their subjects with its minimum focus distance of 0.19m. 


Performance That Packs A Punch

Tiny but mighty, the large diameter and short focal distance of the ground-breaking Z mount makes it possible for the NIKKOR Z 28mm f/2.8 to achieve a balance of superior optical performance of sharpness and clarity while being more portable and lightweight than other lenses in the market.  

Experience the quiet, fast and highly precise autofocus (AF) control of the lens which adopts the multi-focus system. Equipped with two stepping motors (STM), the lens allows users to achieve close-up shooting while effectively minimising aberrations around the edges of the frame.

Users will be able to elevate their photography with the lens’ f/2.8 aperture to achieve a creamy bokeh, ensuring that their subjects are well distinguished from their backgrounds, setting their shots apart from others. Additionally, users will be able to utilise a faster shutter speed without compromising exposure, providing sharp and clear images.


Versatility Even With Videos

For photographers looking to capture the special moments, they can simply ease into shooting videos with the NIKKOR Z 28mm f/2.8. Coupled with the lens’ two STM that afford users quiet and highly precise autofocus, the click-less control ring provides convenience and further prevention of operations sounds by assigning various functions onto the lens, allowing users to take filming to the next level. 

Whether it’s a child taking their first step, a family reunion or the sunset over the horizon, the NIKKOR Z 28mm f/2.8 is designed to adapt to the changes of scenes in your environment. With its stabilised exposure that ensures precise and stable aperture control, the lens delivers natural brightness changes for a more effortless and smoother video-recording experience, even with continuous shooting. With the focus-breathing reduction feature, users will be able to prevent shifting of the angle of view when acquiring focus, capturing all moments naturally and seamlessly from a distance or close up.
