Nikon Announces the New 28-75mm f/2.8 Full-Frame Lens

Nikon has announced the NIKKOR Z 28-75mm f/2.8, the latest standard zoom lens to expand the impressive NIKKOR Z portfolio, billed as a more affordable alternative to the Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S.

“Since the beginning of this year, we have announced numerous NIKKOR Z lenses for all levels of creators, which have been commended for their unrivaled quality and edge-to-edge sharpness,” said Jay Vannatter, Executive Vice President, Nikon Inc. “Now we are continuing this winning streak by adding an extremely enticing option for enthusiasts in the rapidly growing full-frame market.”

The new NIKKOR Z 28-75mm f/2.8 is an attractive value for all types of photographers and creators, providing a lightweight lens with a versatile focal range and an f/2.8 constant aperture, all for an affordable price. Capable of everything from impressive portraits with a soft background blur to extremely detailed landscape photos, striking low-light ambiance, or small-footprint video production, the 28-75mm f/2.8 covers it all. The fixed aperture of f/2.8 enables a pleasing depth of field with natural bokeh to emphasize the focus on the subject. The lightweight lens weighs only 565g, making it incredibly easy to pack, carry casually or wield for an all-day event. When paired with a Nikon Z 5, the new 28-75mm f/2.8 creates a compelling combination as a carry-anywhere, cost-effective full-frame kit, or paired with the Z 6II to step up content creation to the next level.

The NIKKOR Z 28-75mm f/2.8 offers many of the benefits of its highly acclaimed sibling, the NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S. While both lenses are extremely versatile options and serve as staples in every photographer’s bag, the 28-75mm f/2.8 is approximately 30% lighter with a slimmer profile. The lens features a control ring for maximum customization and excels in video creation due to minimal focus breathing and near-silent operation. The new 28-75mm f/2.8 also features a minimum focusing distance of only 0.19m (at 28mm), making it a great option for cuisine, table-scapes and intricate fashion.

Optically, the lens is constructed of 15 elements in 12 groups and features one extra-low dispersion (ED) element, one super extra-low dispersion element, and three aspherical elements. It has a maximum angle of view of 75-degrees to 32-degrees, a maximum reproduction ratio of 0.34x, and a 67mm front element. It features a nine-bladed rounded aperture diaphragm that has a range of f/2.8 through f/22.

The 28-75mm f/2.8 does not feature any kind of image stabilization and will rely on a camera’s in-body image stabilization. The 28-75mm f/2.8 also has a control ring that can be customized to change ISO, aperture, and exposure compensation.
