Nikon Introduces Nikon NIKKOR Z 17-28mm f/2.8 Full-Frame Lens; Preorder and First Look at B&H Photo

Photography News: Nikon has introduced the new Nikon NIKKOR Z 17-28,mm f/2.8 full-frame mirrorless lens—a lightweight, transportable, travel-friendly, wide f/2.8 constant aperture zoom lens
NEW YORK,--(BUSINESS WIRE)--#Apple--B&H is excited to announce the Nikon NIKKOR Z 17-28mm f/2.8 full-frame mirrorless lens that joins its stablemate, the Nikon NIKKOR Z 28-75mm f/2.8 lens. Nikon mirrorless shooters now have a pair of lightweight, transportable, travel-friendly, wide f/2.8 constant aperture zooms. With its non-conventional wide-angle focal length range, this zoom lens may be the modern day mirrorless spiritual successor to the legendary Nikon AF-S Zoom-NIKKOR 17-35mm f/2.8D IF-ED lens that, due to its popularity and reputation, has been in production since 1999.
Nikon NIKKOR Z 17-28mm f/2.8 Lens
- Z-Mount Lens/Full-Frame Format
- Aperture Range: f/2.8 to f/22
- Stepping Motor AF System
- Internal Focus and Zoom Design
- Programmable Control Ring
- Dust- and Drip-Resistant Construction
- Rounded 9-Blade Diaphragm
Although it has a similar focal-length range and the same constant f/2.8 maximum aperture of the NIKKOR Z 14-24mm f/2.8 S, the new 17-28mm lens is 30% lighter and smaller in the hand. Adopting a consumer-friendly trend, the new lens’s 67mm filter diameter matches that of its brother 28-75mm lens—allowing shooters to carry fewer filters.
The new 17-28mm lens features internal zooming to help minimize center-of-gravity shifts—critical for when used on a gimbal for video recording. Speaking of video performance, the 17-28mm has suppressed focus breathing, near-silent autofocus, and a click-less aperture ring for its rounded 9-blade diaphragm.
When used on a DX-format Nikon Z camera, the 17-28mm lens is transformed into a wide-to-normal travel lens with a 25-42mm equivalent field of view.
