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.

Nikon NIKKOR Z 28mm f/2.8 Reviews

Great for street and general photography

The Nikon NIKKOR Z 28mm f/2.8 Lens is an amazingly great lens for street and general photography, with it's wide field of view and close minimal focusing distance.

Great for video

I have a 24-70 zoom for my Z6 and while it's a workhorse and super sharp, it falls short in video since it's motor wasn't designed for video, and it's pretty heavy when on a gimbal. This small, super light lense really fills my need in this area.

LOVE B&H - GREAT SERVICE!

Very nice, compact lens, takes sharp pictures. I use it both on my Nikon Z6II and on the Z50 or the Zfc where it is the equivalent of a 42mm. Has a plastic mount but that has never been a problem for me.

I like very much.

I've wanted a small lens for my Z6 for a while, and this fits the bill. At 28mm you're not going to use this for every situation, but it's a reasonable walking around lens if you want to keep your camera size as small as possible and lightweight. Reviews will mention is has average optics (it's not an S-Line lens), but for me this is a nice addition to my kit.

Get it.

So cheap but above par performance. A must for full frame cameras and a great lens for when you sell your camera body so you can keep your S series lenses. But don't get me wrong, this lens has great optics.

So Great !

Similar to my 40mm review : Pleasantly surprised. Not as sharp and punchy as the S line, but a few tweaks in post and the results are spectacular for this price range, size, and build quality. Use it for commercial work as well as a walk around personal projects. It's mounted on my Z9.
