Tell moving stories.

With its slim size and weight, the NIKKOR Z 28-75mm f/2.8 works perfectly in tandem with a gimbal or other videography equipment. Keep your vlogging smooth and seamless with effective focus breathing suppression to maintain angle of view when changing focus.

Carry effortlessly.

This compact lens has a slim size of approximately 120.5mm in length, 75mm in diameter and weighs only 565g, which means you can easily slip it into your bag for your next adventure.

Get in close.

With a constant maximum aperture of f/2.8, and a minimum focus of 0.19m at its widest angle, the NIKKOR Z 28-75mm f/2.8 lens creates soft and rounded bokeh easily with stunning depth of field.  



Aspherical Lens

A lens with a curved, non-spherical surface. Used to reduce aberrations and enable a more compact lens size. Aspherical lenses minimise 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 centre of the 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.

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.


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.


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 minimise chromatic aberration even further, as well as other lens aberrations.
