Nikon Setting the Standard

Posted on Jan 7, 2022

Travel light with this compact standard zoom for Nikon’s mirrorless Z system

Nikon’s Z 28-75mm f/2.8 is the ideal walk-around standard zoom with its wide end great for views and groups, while the longer end suits portraits and for picking out detail. Its wide aperture is constant throughout the zoom range, which helps when lighting conditions are less than perfect. Its minimum focus of 19cm at 28mm and 39cm at 75mm also means there’s the potential of close-up shooting too.

The lens’s construction comprises 15 elements in 12 groups and includes one super ED, one ED and three aspherical elements. The lens body is sealed to be dust and drip resistant while the front element is coated to make it easy to clean.

Focusing is silent, fast and works with the eye detection system of Nikon Z cameras, and the focusing action is internal so the lens stays a constant size.

Other physical attributes include a 67mm filter thread, nine diaphragm blades and a weight of 565g.

The Z 28-75mm f/2.8 is priced at £949 with shipping due to start 13 January 2022.
