The new NIKKOR Z 28-75mm f/2.8 is an attractive value for all types of photographers and creators, providing a lightweight lens with a versatile focal range and an f/2.8 constant aperture, all for an affordable price. Capable of everything from impressive portraits with a soft background blur to extremely detailed landscape photos, striking low-light ambience or a small-footprint video production, the 28-75mm f/2.8 covers it all. The fixed aperture of f/2.8 enables a pleasing depth of field with natural bokeh to emphasize the focus on the subject. The lightweight lens weighs only 1.2lbs (565g), making it incredibly easy to pack, carry casually or wield for an all-day event. When paired with a Nikon Z 5, the new 28-75mm f/2.8 creates a compelling combination as a carry-anywhere, cost-effective full-frame kit, or paired with the Z 6II to step up content creation to the next level.
The NIKKOR Z 28-75mm f/2.8 offers many of the benefits of its highly acclaimed sibling, the NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S. While both lenses are extremely versatile options and serve as staples in every photographer's bag, the 28-75mm f/2.8 is approximately 30% lighter with a slimmer profile. The lens features a control ring for maximum customization, and excels in video creation due to minimal focus breathing and near-silent operation. The new 28-75mm f/2.8 also features a minimum focusing distance of only 0.19m (at 28mm), making it a great option for cuisine, table-scapes and intricate fashion.
Versatile. Fast. Affordable.
A fast f/2.8 constant aperture. Brilliant low light capabilities. Vast depth of field control. Versatile zoom range. Macro-style close focusing. Fast, near-silent autofocus. All in a delightfully lightweight lens that's as inspiring for full-frame stills as it is for videos. The next level is now within reach.
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.
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.
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
An optical glass developed by Nikon that is used with normal optical glass in telephoto lenses to obtain optimum correction of chromatic aberrations.
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
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.
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.
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.
