Nikon Announces The NIKKOR Z 28mm f/2.8 For The Nikon Z Mount System

Nikon Canada Inc. is pleased to announce the release of the NIKKOR Z 28mm f/2.8, a compact and lightweight prime lens for Nikon Z series cameras. This fast aperture wide-angle lens is small enough to carry anywhere, and is ideal for everyday snapshots, group portraits, landscapes, cityscapes, and more. With a total length of approximately 43mm and a weight of roughly 155g, this lens is the smallest and lightest among NIKKOR Z prime lenses. The NIKKOR Z 28mm f/2.8 is also a great lens for close-up photography, with a minimum focus distance of just 0.19 m, making it simple to capture detailed photos and videos of food, DIY crafts, fashion and more. Because it is also extremely compact, affordable and versatile, this new lens will appeal to both full-frame and DX-format Nikon Z series mirrorless users. 

Primary features

  • The smallest and lightest body among NIKKOR Z prime lenses, with a length of approx. 1.6 in / 43mm and weight of approx. 5.5oz /155 g.
  • The fast f/2.8 maximum aperture allows for a shallow depth of field with pleasing bokeh as well as great low-light capability, even during hand-held shooting.
  • When mounted on a DX-format camera such as the Nikon Z fc or Z 50, the focal length becomes a natural 42 mm (equivalent to 35mm [135] format). 
  • A minimum focus distance of 0.19 m allows users to get close to their subjects for dynamic photography.
  • Adoption of a multi-focusing system realizes natural rendering across the entire shooting range, as well as fast and accurate AF control, while maintaining a smaller body size. 
  • Designed with consideration of dust- and drip-resistant performance so that it can be taken anywhere with greater confidence.
  • Functions such as aperture and exposure compensation can be assigned to the control ring.
  • Developed with consideration for video recording with extremely quiet operation, effective focus-breathing compensation, and stable exposure.
  • The lens differs cosmetically from the Z NIKKOR 28mm SE with a modern black finish. 

The new Z NIKKOR 28mm f/2.8 lens will available in December for a manufacturer suggested retail price (MSRP) of $379.00. For more information about the latest Nikon products, including other NIKKOR Z lenses and the entire collection of Nikon Z series cameras, please visit
