Nikon Expands Z-Series Portfolio


Nikon has announced the Nikkor Z 28-75 mm f/2.8, the latest lens to expand the Nikkor Z portfolio. “Since the beginning of this year, we have announced numerous Nikkor Z lenses for all levels of creators, which have been commended for their unrivalled quality and edgeto-edge sharpness,” said Jay Vannatter, Executive Vice President, Nikon Inc. “Now we are continuing this winning streak by adding an extremely enticing option for enthusiast­s in the rapidly growing fullframe market.”

The lens weighs 565 g, weighing approximat­ely 30Ψ lighter than the Nikkor Z 24-70 mm f/2.8 S. It features a control ring for maximum customisat­ion, minimal focus breathing and near-silent operation. The new 28-75 mm f/2.8 also features a minimum focussing distance of 0.19 m (at 28 mm). By employing a stepping motor (STM), the lens quickly focusses on moving subjects during still-shooting or video recording. The lens is sealed to prevent dust and water droplets from entry, enabling use in everyday circumstan­ces. It also features antifoulin­g coating for easy cleaning.

Nikon has also announced the developmen­t of the Nikkor Z 800 mm f/6.3 VR S, a super-telephoto prime lens for full-frame (Nikon FX-format) Nikon Z mirrorless cameras. It is a portable S-Line super-telephoto lens with a compact and light-weight body, being a PF (Phase Fresnel) lens. The Nikkor Z 28-75 mm f/2.8 lens will be available in early 2022 for a suggested retail price of USD 1199.95.
