The new Nikkor Z 28-75mm f/2.8 lens is smaller and approximately 30% lighter than its acclaimed sibling, the Nikkor Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S. It is also more affordable. It offers a minimum focusing distance of 19 cm; the shortest among Nikon’s FX-format standard zoom lenses. Autofocusing is driven by a quiet stepping motor (STM) that is complemented with a click-less control ring, which makes it ideal for video recording. An electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism ensures precise and consistent aperture control and stable exposures for smoother, continuous shooting. The new lens weighs approximately 565 grams, which is light enough for use with a gimbal. It is dust-and-drip resistant, with a coating applied to the front surface to make it easy to keep free of dust or water particles. The new lens is scheduled for global release early in 2022. Local pricing is to be determined. Click here for more information.
