The f/2.8 difference.
The NIKKOR Z 28-70mm f/2.8 is twice as bright as an f/4 lens. This gives you more control of light, more depth of field, more range of expression—more options for creative storytelling.
Dial in the depth and sharpness.
Shoot wide open for a gentle image that accentuates your subject against a beautifully defocused background. As you stop down the aperture, definition gradually spreads throughout the image, sharpening details across the frame. Expand your range of expression.
The heart of the zoom range, at your fingertips.
At its widest, 28mm (42mm equivalent on APS-C size/DX format cameras), the NIKKOR Z 28-75mm f/2.8 is great for wide landscapes, architecture, street scenes and interviews. Smoothly zoom through the sweet spots of the focal length range—35mm, 40mm and 50mm—up to 75mm (~112mm equivalent on DX cameras), a view that’s ideal for portraiture and compressing your depth of field.
Big beautiful bokeh.
Like all NIKKOR Z lenses, the NIKKOR Z 28-70mm f/2.8 produces beautiful bokeh. Its wide f/2.8 aperture and 9-blade rounded diaphragm render out of focus light as large, soft spheres. Isolate your subject against a dreamlike background.
Lightweight design defies convention.
The NIKKOR Z 28-70mm f/2.8 is the lightest, most nimble full-frame f/2.8 standard zoom we’ve ever created. It’s nearly 30% lighter than the NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S with a smaller diameter (75mm), and it’s just 4.8 inches long when retracted. This is a go-to lens for being on-the-go.
Close focusing reveals hidden gems.
With it’s optical design, the NIKKOR Z 28-70mm f/2.8 can focus as close as 7.5 inches. Fill your frame with the smallest details, and shoot in tight spaces to reveal epic new views.
Resists dust, drips, fingerprints and smudges.
The entire lens is sealed to prevent dust and water droplets* from getting between you and a great image. The front element features an antifouling coating that resists dirt, fingerprints, and smudges and is easy to clean.
Tracks eyes with ease.
For rapid autofocus, the Nikon NIKKOR Z 28-70mm f/2.8 uses a high-speed stepping motor that makes minute adjustments with minimal mechanical noise. It’s a perfect match for your Z camera’s Eye-Detection AF, especially in situations where silence is golden.
Optimized for Z series video.
Its wide f/2.8 aperture, versatile zoom range and lightweight size make the NIKKOR Z 28-75mm f/2.8 ideal for gimbal work. Focus breathing is suppressed to maintain a consistent angle-of-view as focus position moves. Use the smooth control ring to make iris adjustments that create a natural shift in brightness. And all the while, the stepping motor is operating in near silence to preserve your audio integrity.
