The f/2.8 difference.

The NIKKOR Z 28-75mm f/2.8 is twice as bright as an f/4 lens. This gives you more control of light, more depth of field, more range of expression—more options for creative storytelling.

Dial in the depth and sharpness.

Shoot wide open for a gentle image that accentuates your subject against a beautifully defocused background. As you stop down the aperture, definition gradually spreads throughout the image, sharpening details across the frame. Expand your range of expression.

The heart of the zoom range, at your fingertips.

At its widest, 28mm (42mm equivalent on APS-C size/DX format cameras), the NIKKOR Z 28-75mm f/2.8 is great for wide landscapes, architecture, street scenes and interviews. Smoothly zoom through the sweet spots of the focal length range—35mm, 40mm and 50mm—up to 75mm (~112mm equivalent on DX cameras), a view that's ideal for portraiture and compressing your depth of field.

Big beautiful bokeh.

Like all NIKKOR Z lenses, the NIKKOR Z 28-75mm f/2.8 produces beautiful bokeh. Its wide f/2.8 aperture and 9-blade rounded diaphragm render out of focus light as large, soft spheres. Isolate your subject against a dreamlike background.

Lightweight design defies convention.

The NIKKOR Z 28-75mm f/2.8 is the lightest, most nimble full-frame f/2.8 standard zoom we've ever created. It's nearly 30% lighter than the NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S with a smaller diameter (75mm), and it's just 4.8 inches long when retracted. This is a go-to lens for being on-the-go.

Close focusing reveals hidden gems.

With it's optical design, the NIKKOR Z 28-75mm f/2.8 can focus as close as 7.5 inches. Fill your frame with the smallest details, and shoot in tight spaces to reveal epic new views.

Resists dust, drips, fingerprints and smudges.

The entire lens is sealed to prevent dust and water droplets* from getting between you and a great image. The front element features an antifouling coating that resists dirt, fingerprints, and smudges and is easy to clean.

Tracks eyes with ease.

For rapid autofocus, the NIKKOR Z 28-75mm f/2.8 uses a high-speed stepping motor that makes minute adjustments with minimal mechanical noise. It's a perfect match for your Z camera's Eye-Detection AF, especially in situations where silence is golden.

Optimized for Z series video.

Its wide f/2.8 aperture, versatile zoom range and lightweight size make the NIKKOR Z 28-75mm f/2.8 ideal for gimbal work. Focus breathing is suppressed to maintain a consistent angle-of-view as focus position moves. Use the smooth control ring to make iris adjustments that create a natural shift in brightness. And all the while, the stepping motor is operating in near silence to preserve your audio integrity.

Technology

  • Electromagnetic Diaphragm Mechanism

    Electromagnetic Diaphragm Mechanism

    An electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism in the lens barrel provides highly accurate electronic diaphragm or aperture blade control when using auto exposure during continuous shooting.
  • ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) Glass

    ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) Glass

    An optical glass developed by Nikon that is used with normal optical glass in telephoto lenses to obtain optimum correction of chromatic aberrations.
  • Aspherical Lens

    Aspherical Lens

    A lens with a curved, non-spherical surface. Used to reduce aberrations and enable a more compact lens size. Aspherical lenses minimize coma and other types of lens aberrations, even when used at the widest aperture. They are particularly useful in correcting distortion in wide-angle lenses and help contribute to a lighter, more compact design by reducing the number of standard (spherical) elements necessary. Aspherical lens elements correct these distortions by continuously changing the refractive index from the center of the lens.
  • Super ED Glass

    Super ED Glass

    Nikon has also developed Super ED glass featuring even lower dispersion properties and extremely high performance in reducing the secondary spectrum, to minimize chromatic aberration even further, as well as other lens aberrations.
  • Stepping Motor

    Stepping Motor

    NIKKOR Z lenses use a stepping motor for fast, accurate, smooth, quiet autofocus with reduced wobbling. This quiet drive system makes the lenses ideal for use when shooting video.
  • IF Lens

    IF Lens

    A NIKKOR lens in which only the internal lens group shifts during focusing. Thus, IF NIKKORS do not change in size during AF operation, allowing for compact, lightweight lenses capable of closer focusing distances. These lenses will be designated with the abbreviation IF on the lens barrel.
