The Nikon Z 28-400mm f/4-8 VR is a sharp, compact wide-to-telephoto zoom for Nikon Z-Mount cameras. Key features include:

  • Only for Nikon Z-mount cameras

  • Great for sports, wildlife, and travel photography

  • Advanced optical design for maximum sharpness

  • Fast, silent autofocus; up to 5.5 stops of stabilization

Nikon Z System. The Nikon Z 28-400mm f/4-8 VR was designed specifically for cameras in Nikon’s Z-mount system. Z-mount lenses only work with Z-mount cameras, and Z-mount cameras are only compatible with Z-mount lenses.

Expansive Wide-to-Telephoto Zoom. With full-frame sensor coverage, this lens’s versatile 28-400mm zoom range lets you capture exciting action shots while still maximizing image quality and speed. It’s exceptional for street scenes; macro-style close-ups; large group portraits; and sports, event, travel, and wildlife photography, among other applications.

High-Quality Optics. The Nikon Z 128-400mm’s 15-group/21-element optical design features four extra-low dispersion elements and three aspherical elements to promote sharpness and color rendering while limiting chromatic aberrations. Nikon has applied an FLC fluorine coating to the elements to combat ghosting and lens flare, even when you’re working in bright or backlit conditions.

Variable Aperture. The variable f/4-8 aperture isn’t useful for low-light shooting, so you’ll probably want to stick with outdoor-lighting conditions for best results. The rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to smooth, pleasing bokeh for shallow depth-of-field techniques.

Vibration Reduction. The built-in vibration reduction provides up to five stops of correction for minimizing camera shake at slower shutter speeds and producing sharper results when shooting hand-held. When you pair this lens with compatible cameras that have sensor-shift vibration reduction, you can use Synchro Vibration Reduction, which combines in-body vibration reduction with optical vibration reduction for up to 5.5 stops of compensation.

Stepping Motor Autofocus System. The stepping motor allows for fast, silent, and smooth operation. Pairing a speedy AF system together with a continuous manual mechanism allows you to hit your focus with confidence. A 7.9-inch minimum focusing distance at the 28mm position and 0.35x maximum magnification let you get in close to capture details.

Durable, Compact Build. This lens’s durable, weather-resistant construction means you can use it in adverse conditions without worry. Its relatively compact, lightweight size makes it a viable choice for hand-held shooting, its square hood helps prevent ghosting and its zoom-lock switch keeps it from extending unless you want it to.
