Nikon NIKKOR Z 28-75mm f/2.8 Overview

By B&H Photo's

Nikon NIKKOR Z 28-75mm f/2.8 Lens

The Nimble Standard Zoom

Lightweight, nimble, and fast, the NIKKOR Z 28-75mm f/2.8 is the sleekest f/2.8 zoom for FX-format cameras Nikon has ever produced. Spanning a wide-angle to portrait-length range and featuring a bright design that excels in low-light and for controlling depth of field, this lens is all about versatility in a compact package.


  • Covering wide-angle to short-telephoto focal lengths, this lens is ideal for a variety of shooting situations, including landscape, street, portraiture, documentary, and travel applications.
  • Constant f/2.8 maximum aperture benefits working in available lighting conditions and offers increased control over depth of field for working with selective focus effects.
  • One Super ED element and one extra-low dispersion element greatly reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations throughout the zoom range in order to produce greater clarity and color rendering.
  • Three aspherical elements are used to reduce spherical aberrations and distortion in order to realize sharp imagery with accurate rendering.
  • Rounded nine-blade diaphragm promotes a pleasing out of focus quality that benefits the use of shallow depth of field and selective focus techniques.


  • Stepping motor maintains quick and quiet autofocus performance that's ideal for both photo and video needs.
  • 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.
  • Minimum focusing distance of 7.5" benefits working with close-up subjects.
  • Focus breathing has been suppressed to benefit video use and maintain a consistent field of view when changing focus.

Physical Design

  • Impressively compact and lightweight design for an f/2.8 standard zoom, this lens measures just 4.8" long when retracted and weighs 30% less than the NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S lens.
  • 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.
  • Dust- and moisture-resistant lens barrel benefits the lens' use in inclement conditions. There is also an antifouling coating on the front of the lens that resists smudging, fingerprints, and dirt and is easy to clean.

Chiaro Pro 67mm 98-UVAT UV Filter

The Pro 67mm 98-UVAT UV Filter is one of Chiaro’s highest-rated protective UV filters with 98% light transmission. It’s ideal for photographers who demand high-quality glass and other essential features for excellent image fidelity and construction.

To achieve 98% light transmission, Chiaro uses highly-polished optical glass, multi-coating, and additional advanced elements that improve the filter’s light transmission. Resistance coating improves the scratch resistance of the glass, and helps assure that water, oil, dust, and fingerprints are removed with a gentle wipe. A hard-anodized aluminum filter ring is designed to screw on and off effortlessly, and it’s thin to prevent vignetting when used with wide-angle lenses.

Image quality is what matters most at Chiaro. The company has tested and combined many features and essentials to achieve superior image quality and the highest light transmission. To help take the confusion out of selecting a filter, Chiaro prominently displays the light transmission levels so that you can choose the perfect filter for your lens and photo session.


98% Light Transmission

Protecting your lens doesn't mean you have to lose optical quality. By using highly-polished optical glass and advanced coatings, Chiaro offers a 98% transmission rate, which is an excellent transmission rate for glass. And the company verifies the ratings with ISO certified lab testing.

Resistance Coating

The layers of advanced resistance coating on the filter are designed to resist moderate scratches, and allows you to easily clean your filter. Water beads up and rolls off your filter, and oil and fingerprints can come off with a gentle wipe. Dust and debris won't adhere to the filter and can be removed with a puff of air.

Polished Optical Glass

Glass that's polished to perfection is essential to achieve a high level of light transmission. The optical glass in this Chiaro filter is highly-polished for flatness that ensures excellent optical clarity.


Multi-coating enhances light transmission to the demanding level set for all Chiaro filters. It reduces unwanted internal reflections and ghosting that can compromise your images.

UV Protection

The filter blocks UV light and reduces the bluish cast of daylight that can affect color accuracy, especially at higher altitudes.

Hard Anodized Aluminum Construction

The process of hard anodizing toughens and strengthens the aluminum for a lightweight yet durable filter ring.

Slim Design

Measuring only 3.2mm, this filter is slim enough to use on wide-angle lenses without experiencing vignetting.

Top Knurling

Top knurling offers a firm grip on the filter when you're attaching or removing it.

Secure Attachment

It takes two full turns to mount the filter on your lens. This feature will securely hold your Chiaro filter through the most demanding photo shoots.

Front Threads

The front threads on the filter allow you to stack filters by screwing them onto your Chiaro filter.

The Nikkor 28-75mm f/2.8 is a crisp and fast lens that does not weigh a lot. I am using it to replace my F mount 2/8 which I love but is not native to the Z cameras I use now and is a pretty hefty lens. It is well built and the weather sealing seems to be well done. I may invest in the more expensive 24-70 at some point, but for less that half the cost this is a good value that takes great photos.

There was a little mix-up with the invoice having the wrong serial # for the lens I received but that was fixed immediately upon a call to B&H. The lens is sharp and light, pretty much everything I expected it to be. The order was well-packaged and arrived in timely fashion.

Exactly what I need

I purchased the 28-75 2.8 because I was looking for a mid range zoom that I could take on my vacation jobs. The first session I did with this lens was perfect! There is a little vignetting but with the lens correction in post production it's not hard to correct at all. Overall I'm super happy with my purchase and cannot wait to use this in Tahiti!

Is this a good camera for weddings and events? Or is the 24-120 better?
Asked by: Hagit
Both the Nikon Z 28-75mm f/2.8 and the 24-120mm f/4 S are great lenses for events and weddings. The 28-75mm f/2.8 has the advantage of a larger aperture for low light performance and a shallower depth of field, while the 24-120mm has a wider angle of view as well as a longer reach. Your style of shooting will help determine which suits you better!

For use on a Z50, since the Z50 is not full frame, how will that effect the actual functionality of the lens? Effective focal-length? F-stop?
Asked by: David
There is no built in VR in the lens so you won't get VR on a Z50 which relies on lenses that have built in VR. But on the plus side you get an effective focal length of 42 - 112.5 mm making it a mild telephoto lens.

What about the quality difference 24-70 2.8S?

What about the quality difference 24-70 2.8S?
Asked by: Temuulen
Nikon NIKKOR Z 28-75mm f/2.8 Lens BH #NI287528N delivers impressively sharp images at all ranges. The Nikon NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S Lens BH #NIZ247028 produces sharper images but the difference is extremely little. The Nikon NIKKOR Z 28-75mm f/2.8 Lens is not as quiet as the 24-70mm f/2.8 S, but it is still better and faster than the f/4 lens and many other comparable lenses we at B&H have tested. Nikon NIKKOR Z 28-75mm f/2.8 Lens can even focus at a closer distance (0.62 feet or 7.5 inches) vs. the Nikon NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S Lens BH #NIZ247028. The vignetting and falloff in the corners are noticeable on both wide and zoomed focal lengths but this can be easily corrected with the camera's vignetting compensation.
