NIKKOR Z 17-28mm f/2.8


  • NIKKOR Z 17-28mm f/2.8
  • NIKKOR Z 17-28mm f/2.8: angle1


  • The combination of a constant maximum aperture of f/2.8 and ultrawide-angle zoom realizes a broad spectrum of unique photographic expressions.
  • One super ED glass, two ED glass, and three aspherical lens elements are adopted to deliver superior resolution while effectively suppressing axial chromatic aberration, attaining sharp and clear images across the entire frame.
  • The fast maximum aperture of f/2.8 creates impressive bokeh to emphasize the subject naturally and enables the use of faster shutter speeds without increasing ISO sensitivities.
  • The body weighs only approx. 450 g, making it incredibly easy to carry around without compromising its superior optical performance.
  • The employment of an STM achieves fast and precise AF that is ideal for shooting moving subjects, while ensuring excellent quietness with reduced operational sounds during focusing and movie recording.
  • The minimum focus distance is 0.19 m*1, which is the shortest*2 among full-frame/FX-format NIKKOR Z wide-angle zoom lenses, allowing users to capture a subject dynamically.
    • *1At 17 mm zoom position.
    • *2Statement based on Nikon research. As of September 20, 2022.
  • As the lens doesn't extend or retract when zooming in/out, it ensures comfortable operability with an appropriate weight balance.
  • Stylish design with a satin finish and superior operability enhance the sense of the series, among the NIKKOR Z lineup.
  • The lens is sealed to prevent dust and water droplets* from entering the lens, enabling use in everyday circumstances without worries.
    • *Thorough dust- and drip-resistance is not guaranteed in all situations or under all conditions.
  • Genuine video recording performance is attained by intensive consideration even of details such as focus-breathing compensation, quiet operation and stable exposure.
