NIKKOR Z 17-28mm f/2.8 PRIMARY FEATURES
Outstanding Versatility and Optical Quality
The NIKKOR Z 17-28mm f/2.8 redefines versatility with notable optical quality. A constant maximum aperture of f/2.8 coupled with the shortest minimum focus distance of 0.19m (at 17mm zoom position), enables users to experiment with different angles and distances to emphasise the subject or easily create natural bokeh with the short working distance of approximately 5cm. Enjoy smooth capturing of nearby subjects without requiring extra distance. Furthermore, its fast aperture allows for shooting in confined, low-light conditions without sacrificing image quality.
Live performances and other fleeting moments have never been easier to capture. Equipped with a fast and precise autofocus (AF) system that uses an extremely quiet stepping motor (STM), the lens gives users little to worry about when shooting fast-paced situations or spontaneous moments.
The Epitome of Easy Reliability
Housed in a slim and compact body measuring just slightly smaller than a wallet, the lens also weighs approximately 450g and fits easily into any bag to be carried around, offering users a shooting experience with increased mobility and freedom. Shoot with peace of mind under any daily weather condition as the lens is designed with a sealing to prevent dust and water droplets from entering2. In addition, its frontmost surface is coated for an antifouling performance thus providing means for quick cleaning and offering a stress-free shooting experience.
Optimised Operability for Video Recording
Equipped with a control ring that offers a smooth feel when using it and without any intrusive sounds, the NIKKOR Z 17-28mm f/2.8 further allows users to record movies comfortably with a natural shift in focus position and brightness level. The lens is also designed to effectively suppress effects of focus breathing to help achieve smoother transitions in videos. Its compact size and weight pairs well with a gimbal, even while maintaining optimal performance needed for 4K video recording.
