Nikon has introduced two new zooms for Z series cameras: the NIKKOR Z 70-180mm f/2.8 and Nikkor 180-600mm f/5.6-6.3 lenses

NEW YORK, June 21, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- B&H is pleased to share Nikon's announcement of two expansive zoom lenses for Z series cameras: the NIKKOR Z 70-180mm f/2.8 and NIKKOR 180-600mm f/5.6-6.3 VR. The 70-180mm f/2.8 lens brings the benefits of a fast, constant aperture to a compact and relatively lightweight form. The Nikon Nikkor 180-600mm f/5.6-6.3 VR lens becomes the farthest-reaching zoom for Z series cameras to date. Together they form a telephoto kit with massive coverage, from portraits to events, wildlife, sports, and more.

In addition to a versatile zoom range, the Nikon NIKKOR Z 70-180mm f/2.8 lens offers better low-light performance and subject-background separation than slower zooms. A minimum focusing distance ranging from 0.68 inches (wide) to 2.79 (tele) allow you to get up close and personal to subjects. When even more reach is needed, it can be paired with a 1.4x or 2x teleconverter to provide the equivalent of 252mm and 360mm maximum focal length, respectively.

Videographers will appreciate suppressed focus breathing for smooth transitions when recording. Finally, measuring less than 6 inches in length and weighing 1.75 lb, it maintains a manageable form for handheld use and everyday carry.
