Overview

Nikkor Z 28mm f/2.8 (SE) Lens

Street smart. With a classic look

Introducing a special edition, classic designed 28mm prime lens. One of the Z system’s smallest, lightest full-frame primes. Get excellent image quality with its street smart 28mm perspective—42mm on DX cameras (35mm equivalent) and fast f/2.8 max aperture. This is the lens for being spontaneous.

Key Features:

  • Aspherical Lens
  • IF Lens
  • Stepping Motor
  • Electromagnetic Diaphragm Mechanism

Aspherical Lens

A lens with a curved, non-spherical surface. Used to reduce aberrations and enable a more compact lens size. Aspherical lenses minimize coma and other types of lens aberrations, even when used at the widest aperture. They are particularly useful in correcting distortion in wide-angle lenses and help contribute to a lighter, more compact design by reducing the number of standard (spherical) elements necessary. Aspherical lens elements correct these distortions by continuously changing the refractive index from the centre of the lens.

IF Lens

A NIKKOR lens in which only the internal lens group shifts during focusing. Thus, IF NIKKORS do not change in size during AF operation, allowing for compact, lightweight lenses capable of closer focusing distances. These lenses will be designated with the abbreviation IF on the lens barrel.

Stepping Motor

NIKKOR Z lenses use a stepping motor for fast, accurate, smooth, quiet autofocus with reduced wobbling. This quiet drive system makes the lenses ideal for use when shooting video.

Electromagnetic Diaphragm Mechanism

An electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism in the lens barrel provides highly accurate electronic diaphragm or aperture blade control when using auto exposure during continuous shooting.

All-purpose sensibility

On a DX-format Z camera like the Z fc or Z 50, the NIKKOR Z 28mm f/2.8 (SE) performs like a 42mm (35mm equivalent). That’s a great all-purpose view for videos, snapshots, portraits—just about anything. On a full-frame Z camera, it delivers a classic 28mm view, the perspective of choice for street photography, architecture, interiors and situational portraits.

Special edition design

A shout out to the Nikon lenses of the ‘80s, the NIKKOR Z 28mm f/2.8 (SE) brings a touch of classic style to any Z camera. The unique knurling around the control ring is based on Nikon design drawings from that period—a lovely balance of form and function. The typeface and NIKKOR logo echo the era, completing the classic look.

Nothing weighing you down

The NIKKOR Z 28mm f/2.8 (SE) is so compact and lightweight, you’ll forget it’s even there. A classic compact prime, it doesn’t extend or retract, so it’s always ready. Take it wherever you go as your main walk-around lens or as a lightweight second lens.

Get in close

With a close focusing distance of 0.63 feet (0.19 meters), NIKKOR Z 28mm f/2.8 (SE) rewards you for getting close to your subject. The wide perspective and deep depth of field let you incorporate more background information into your videos and stills.

Shoot after hours

The larger Z mount draws even more low-light performance from the wide f/2.8 aperture. Capture the mood of dimly lit situations with clarity and sharpness.

Video savvy

A classic 28mm is an outstanding video lens. The NIKKOR Z 28mm f/2.8 (SE) greatly suppresses focus breathing to prevent angle-of-view shifts during recording. Make smooth iris adjustments that create a natural shift in brightness. And all the while, the dual stepping motors are operating in near silence to preserve your audio integrity.

The multi-focus difference

Traditional primes focus by moving one group of lens elements with one motor. The NIKKOR Z 28mm f/2.8 (SE) divides that work between two focus groups and two high-speed, ultra-quiet stepping motors moving in sync with each other—a first for a non S-line Z lens. This multi-focus system focuses faster, but it also reduces distortion at the frame edges and close range scenes.

Customizable control

The smooth control ring can be customized for the way you shoot. Use it for precise manual focusing or to adjust aperture, ISO or exposure compensation.
