Nikon NIKKOR Z 28mm f/2.8 Overview

A wide-angle prime that's as compact as it is versatile, the NIKKOR Z 28mm f/2.8, from Nikon, offers a comfortably broad field of view that suits a variety of applications, ranging from architecture to landscape to street subjects. The f/2.8 maximum aperture benefits working in available lighting and controlling depth of field and also contributes to a sleek and portable form factor.

In terms of handling, a dual stepping motor AF system offers quiet and smooth focusing performance that benefits both stills and video capture, and a programmable control ring can also be set for intuitive adjustment over a variety of camera and exposure settings.

Wide-angle prime lens is designed for FX-format Nikon Z-mount mirrorless cameras and can also be used with DX-format models, where it provides a 42mm equivalent focal length.
Bright f/2.8 maximum aperture suits working in available lighting conditions and also contributes to the compact overall form factor.
Two aspherical elements are featured in the optical design and help to limit spherical aberrations and distortion in order to achieve high sharpness and accurate rendering.
Super Integrated Coating suppresses flare and ghosting for improved contrast and color fidelity when working in strong lighting conditions.
Dual stepping motors deliver impressively smooth, quiet, and fast autofocus performance that is well-suited to both stills and video applications. Full-time manual focus override is also possible, and an internal focusing design is used, where only the internal lens groups are moved during focusing, to maintain the overall length of the lens during use and to promote faster focusing speeds.
Programmable Control Ring is, by default, set to adjust manual focus but can also be used to control aperture or exposure compensation.
Specialized electromagnetic aperture mechanism provides greater exposure control stability that is especially beneficial when working with fast continuous shooting rates.
Rounded seven-blade diaphragm promotes a pleasing out of focus quality that benefits the use of shallow depth of field and selective focus techniques.

Light and Fun Lens for my Nikon Z50

I purchased this lens after seeing some spectacular photos taken with it on the Nikon Z50 Facebook group. This lens is small and light and makes for a compact kit mounted on the Z50. The pictures taken are sharp and those with leading lines are interesting due to the amount of additional scenery is added to the frame. Looking forward to using this lens for night street photography.

Terrific lens

Light, sharp (surprisingly so), bright -- and if you're like me, you'll find that on a full-frame camera, this is an ideal focal length. It's wide enough for dramatic angles, but not so wide that it distorts things. This is the lens I leave on my camera.

Such a small lens and excellent field of view for a street walking lens. Not the sharpest lens I have but the one I use the most

Great Prime Lens

The Nikon 28mm f2.8 Z lens is amazing in many ways. First and foremost it's light weight which is perfect for travel. Build quality could of been better by adding metal components to the lens vs plastic. However it still works great and it is super sharp for the money it's worth. In conclusion it is worth every penny and I highly recommend the lens to anyone seeking a nice and compact lens that does the job at 28mm. It even works for a portrait lens!

Would this lens be good for low light concert photography?
Asked by: Nikki
This lens would show the performers too far away. I would get the Nikon Z 85mm f/1.8 S instead to get closer shots of the performers. If you want the whole stage, 28mm is fine but the people will be small unless you're really close. Nikon has a Nikon Z 135mm f/unknown S on their roadmap which could also be good for closeup shots, but no release date yet.
