New Delhi: 20th Sep 2022 - Nikon India Private Ltd.  introduces the NIKKOR Z 17-28mm f/2.8, a portable and lightweight ultra-wide angle zoom lens that provides users with exceptional versatility. Its focal length offers users a diversified and convenient shooting experience, from capturing vivid night scenes, to everyday snaps – all without having to switch between multiple lenses. Housed in a compact body, the lens is easy to bring around for travels, equipping users with the ability to capture beautiful cityscapes and landscapes on the go.

“The NIKKOR Z 17-28mm f/2.8 ultrawide angle zoom lens is an affordable, compact and light weight lens. It features a constant maximum aperture of f/2.8 along with great AF performance and designed for videos as well.

Ltd.

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[1] 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 entering[2]. 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.

NIKKOR is Nikon's brand of photographic lenses. The NIKKOR name arose from adding "r", a common practice in the naming of photographic lenses at the time the name was established, to "Nikko", the Romanized abbreviation for Nippon Kogaku K.K., the original name used when the company was established. In November 2018, Nikon announced its milestone achievement of 110 million in total production of NIKKOR lenses for Nikon interchangeable lens cameras.

In November 2023, Nikon celebrated its 90th anniversary for NIKKOR, which has grown into an internationally recognised brand that pushes the boundaries of imaging excellence.
