Compared to its highly acclaimed sibling, the Nikkor Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S, the new Z 28-75mm f/2.8 shares many of the same benefits while being 30% lighter with a slimmer profile. The Z 28-75mm f/2.8 features a control ring for maximum customization and excels in video creation due to minimal focus breathing and near-silent operation. It also features a minimum focusing distance of only 0.19m (at 28mm), making it an excellent option for close-up details, flat lays, food photography and more.

  • The lens weighs only 565g (1.2 lbs), which is 238g lighter than the Nikkor Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S. In addition to its portability, the lens is well-suited for gimbal use for content creation and video productions.
  • The minimum focus distance of 0.62ft (0.19m) allows users to capture intricate details.
  • By employing a stepping motor (STM) with a superior response, the lens quickly focuses on moving subjects during still-shooting or video recording.

    • The knurling employed improves operation.
