Nikon Corporation (Nikon) is pleased to announce the release of the NIKKOR Z 28mm f/2.8, a compact and lightweight prime lens compatible with full-frame (Nikon FX-format) mirrorless cameras for which the Nikon Z mount has been adopted.
The NIKKOR Z 28mm f/2.8 is the smallest and lightest* among NIKKOR Z prime lenses, with a total length of approximately 43 mm and a weight of roughly 155 g, achieving superior portability. The NIKKOR Z 28mm f/2.8 is perfect not only for snapshots taking advantage of the 28 mm wide angle of view, but also close-up photography utilizing its minimum focus distance of 0.19 m. As a fast, wide-angle lens that can be carried around easily, it is ideal for everyday snapshots including landscapes, cityscapes, and still photography. Furthermore, its high cost-performance makes it an ideal choice for a broad range of Z series users, from amateur photographers to professional photographers.
Nikon will continue to pursue a new dimension in optical performance while meeting users' needs, contributing to the development of imaging culture, with the hope of expanding possibilities for imaging expression.
The smallest and lightest body among NIKKOR Z prime lenses, with a length of approx. 43 mm and weight of approx. 155 g.
The fast f/2.8 maximum aperture reduces the effects of camera shake, even during hand-held shooting.
The focal length becomes 42 mm (equivalent to 35mm  format) when mounted on a DX-format camera.
A minimum focus distance of 0.19 m allows users to get close to their subjects for dynamic photography.
Adoption of a multi-focusing system*1 realizes natural rendering across the entire shooting range, as well as fast and accurate AF control, while maintaining a smaller body size.
Designed with consideration of dust- and drip-resistant performance*2 so that it can be taken anywhere with greater confidence.
Functions such as aperture and exposure compensation can be assigned to the control ring.
Developed with consideration for video recording with extremely quiet operation, effective focus-breathing compensation, and stable exposure.
