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

Terrific lens

By Edward
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-09-24

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.

My new favorite 28mm lens.

This small, lightweight, and affordable lens is a pleasure to work with. Just like it's mate, the 40mm f2 lens, they work great for my minimalist approach to most photography. Image quality is great. You really can't go wrong. Thanks Nikon (and B&H) for offering us these little gems at affordable prices.

First Z Lens Purchased For My Z50

By James
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-08-08

I thought I would be happy with using the FMount Lenes with my Nikon Z50, I found that I wanted to go a bit wider than my widest Nikon AF-S prime would take me, so after studying this lens for a few weeks, I pushed the button and bought it. I am surprisingly pleased with the lens - I am old school and do not want to see my FMounts go to the back of the line, however, this little lens it excellent! The clarity and undistorted results are just what I was looking for! This lens is helping me accept the transition to mirrorless! Next Stop Nikon Z8? (I hope soon!)

Seem substantial

I bought this lens as a light weight alternative to a heavy zoom and I have always liked the classic 28mm focal length. Despite the polycarbonate lens mount I was pleased with how substantial the lens feels. It looks great on the Z6ll. I haven't used it a lot yet, but it focuses quickly and quietly. I think is going to make a good walk around or hiking lens.
