One lens.

Multiple everyday scenes.

Get creative and explore unique angles with the NIKKOR Z 17-28mm f/2.8. Take a close-up portrait that is surrounded by a soft and beautiful bokeh effect, a wide-angle shot that captures the grandeur of the city, or a stunning landscape shot from your vacation. A short minimum focus distance of 0.19m¹ gives you the flexibility to capture them all, without having to switch between lenses.

Constant f/2.8 aperture.

Let nothing stop you from photographing, even at night or in low-light situations. With the large constant aperture of the NIKKOR Z 17-28mm f/2.8, you can shoot at higher shutter speed without having to increase the ISO. That way you can keep your images sharp and clear with minimal noise or blurring, even when you shoot at night, or while capturing a fast-moving object. 

Carry easy anywhere.

Fit it into your everyday bag with minimal effort. Weighing at approximately 450g and measuring at approximately 101mm (L) x 75mm (D), the compact and lightweight lens can be conveniently carried around. Record hand-held videos effortlessly with the NIKKOR Z 17-28mm f/2.8 which allows additional videography accessories to be mounted on it, by minimising the shift in centre of gravity.

Vlog like a pro.

Create videos that capture authentic emotions. All made possible with the NIKKOR Z 17-28mm f/2.8, which uses an extremely quiet stepping motor (STM) that reduces drive sound and a click-less control ring that minimise any operational noise.


Effectively suppresses focus breathing by maintaining the angle of view as you shift focus from one subject to another for a smooth and natural transition.

Lock on quickly and precisely.

Encapsulate every important moment, even when you are in a sound sensitive environment like in a theatrical performance or at a library. The NIKKOR Z 17-28mm f/2.8 comes with a fast and precise AF system that uses the very same quiet STM for quick and intuitive response to let you track your subject with ease.

Built Sturdy.

Capture every moment with greater peace of mind. Designed to be dust- and drip-resistant², the NIKKOR Z 17-28mm f/2.8 is weather-sealed so you can take it with you wherever you go, in any weather condition.
A layer of anti-fouling coat is applied on the front-most surface of the lens to prevent contamination, allowing you to clean any dirt or liquid off effortlessly.


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.

Aspherical Lens

A lens with a curved, non-spherical surface. Used to reduce aberrations and enable a more compact lens size. Aspherical lenses minimise 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.

ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) Glass

An optical glass developed by Nikon that is used with normal optical glass in telephoto lenses to obtain optimum correction of chromatic aberrations.

Super ED Glass

Nikon has also developed Super ED glass featuring even lower dispersion properties and extremely high performance in reducing the secondary spectrum, to minimise chromatic aberration even further, as well as other lens aberrations.

¹ At wide-open focal length of 17mm.
² The lens is not guaranteed to be dust- and drip-resistant in all situations or under all conditions.
