Nikon has announced the £249 / €289 NIKKOR Z 28mm f/2.8 lens, the smallest and lightest Z-series prime lens to date. It is the non-SE (Special Edition) version of the Nikon Nikkor Z 28mm f/2.8 (SE) that was announced with the Nikon Z fc. Visually, the two lenses are the same, it’s just the end of the barrel and therefore the weight is different.
The new NIKKOR Z 28mm f/2.8 aperture is fast and affordable, aimed at street photographers, as well as landscapes and portraits, and promises natural-looking bokeh.
The new Nikon Z lens weighs just 155g and is 43mm long, making it small enough to slip in a coat pocket. And a minimum focus distance of 0.19m means you can get closer to your subjects.
Videographers will benefit from a quiet stepping motor that delivers fast and silent AF performance, while focus breathing is reduced, allowing you to adjust focus without affecting the angle of view.
Other features include weatherproof, dustproof and waterproof, and a silent control ring that you can customize to control focus, aperture, exposure compensation, or ISO.
The Nikon NIKKOR Z 28mm f/2.8 release date will be in the winter of 2021. For more Nikon lenses, check out our guide to the best Nikon Z lenses you can buy today.
