The NIKKOR Z 28mm f/2.8 (SE) from Nikon is an ultra-compact and lightweight FX-format prime lens with a traditional Nikon heritage design. This Special Edition lens inherits its design from the classic NIKKOR lenses released around the same time as the Nikon FM2 film SLR camera, with features that faithfully reproduce the designs of that time, such as knurling, and a prominent control ring. The lens is designed to be a versatile wide-angle lens well-suited to a range of subjects, including landscape, architecture, and reportage.
With an f/2.8 max aperture, this fast, bright lens offers beautiful details at a standard focal length. Complementing the optical design, a multi-focus system, which employs two stepping motors, helps to realize impressively fast, accurate, and quiet focus performance, along with full-time manual focus override, to suit both stills and video needs. Additionally, a programmable control ring can be set for intuitive adjustment over a variety of camera and exposure settings. It makes for a great carry-around lens for spontaneous moments at any time of day.
Custom Control Ring
The control ring rotates to control focusing, aperture, ISO, or exposure compensation
Two fast stepping autofocus motors operate in near silence. the internal focus lens features a rear-focus design that divides the elements into specific lens groups, with only the rear lens group moving for focusing for faster, smoother operation. The position of the focus groups is precisely controlled, resulting in extremely accurate and high-speed AF control
A/M (Auto-Priority Manual) F Mode
Enables an easy transition from autofocus to manual during AF operation
The position of the focus groups is precisely controlled, resulting in extremely accurate and high-speed AF control. Also, by effectively reducing aberrations, superb imaging performance is delivered across the entire shooting range including close distances.
Super Integrated Lens Coating
Multilayer lens coating achieves high transmittance in a wider wavelength range. This coating system effectively reduces the ghost and flare effects that are likely to occur in backlit situations, helping you achieve high-contrast images with rich gradation. Ghost and flare effects caused by internal reflections particular to digital cameras are also effectively minimized for outstanding color balance and reproduction capability, superb optical performance.
