Reliable Features That Support a Wide Range of Situations

The NIKKOR Z 28-400mm f/4-8 VR boasts impressive versatility despite its super-telephoto zoom, making it a reliable lens that supports a wide range of situations. Get up close and personal with subjects thanks to its minimal focusing distance of 0.2m at the wide-angle2 end, ideal for capturing intricate details, like your favourite food on a restaurant table or macro shots. In addition, the 1.2m minimum focusing distance at the telephoto end extends to portraits at longer zoom settings, allowing you to achieve beautiful background blur for impactful compositions.

In addition, the NIKKOR Z 28-400mm f/4-8 VR lens boasts a built-in optical vibration reduction (VR) mechanism, effective for up to 5.0 stops3, ensuring sharp images in low-light conditions and when using super-telephoto zoom. This can be further enhanced to 5.5 stops with the Synchro VR4 feature, combining in-camera and lens VR for even steadier shots.

For fast-moving subjects, the lens uses a stepping motor (STM) for quick and precise autofocus. It is also dust and drip-resistant5, making it suitable for shooting in unpredictable weather.

Designed with video recording in mind, the lens minimises focus-breathing and offers linear manual focus for precise control during video shooting.

Exterior Design

The exterior design of the lens inherits the style of the 2nd-generation Z lenses, resulting in a professional and sleek appearance. It features a compact square lens hood, ensuring comfortable usability. When attached inverted, the hood provides excellent storage while maintaining good optical performance. Additionally, the ergonomic design, compact and lightweight construction ensures comfort during extended use.

Notably, the lens incorporates several practical features, such as Zoom Lock Switch and Control Ring.
