London, United Kingdom, 14th December 2021: Today, Nikon adds a new full-frame standard zoom lens to the Nikon Z family. The NIKKOR Z 28-75mm f/2.8 boasts a versatile wide-angle to telephoto zoom range, a fast constant aperture, and sharp focusing. Street scenes to landscapes to portraits, it’s a great walkaround lens for Nikon Z users who want to up their creative game.
With its lightweight build and sharp optics, the NIKKOR Z 28-75mm f/2.8 lets people capture superb images of everything that inspires them. The versatile zoom range covers a number of classic focal lengths, while the f/2.8 constant aperture allows more freedom to try out new ideas: users can easily capture the mood of dimly lit situations or explore the creative potential of shallow depth of field. They can also shoot with faster shutter speeds in available light and freeze motion without sacrificing brightness.
The NIKKOR Z 28-75mm f/2.8 focuses quickly and sharply, even when shooting up close to a subject, and it renders beautiful bokeh that lets users take their portraiture to the next level. This full-frame Z lens is also well-suited to video: the zoom range can cover wide establishing shots and medium shots, and focus breathing is suppressed.
Rob Harmon, Senior Commercial Lead, Nikon Northern Europe, says: “Lenses with a maximum aperture of f/2.8 have traditionally been developed for professionals, but the optical advantages of the Z mount mean we can offer the NIKKOR Z 28-75mm f/2.8 at a more affordable price. We’re excited to see even more photographers take their skills to the next level as they take advantage of the artistic possibilities that a fast constant aperture lens like this can offer.”
