Description

Nikon Z 12-28mm F3.5-5.6 PZ VR DX Lens

Nikon introduces the first Z series power zoom lens: the ultra-wide-angle Nikon Z 12-28mm f3.5-5.6 DX PZ VR. Compact and well balanced, this DX-format power zoom lens is optimised for video and is great for nailing creative snapshots too. The versatile zoom range makes it perfect for DX camera users who want a lightweight zoom lens that’s wide enough to vlog with.

With the Nikon Z 12-28mm focal-length range, this power zoom lens is perfect for vloggers, movie makers, and photographers who want to fit the whole scene in or fit themselves into the frame. The power zoom function allows the zoom to be controlled remotely, which is ideal for people shooting their own vlogs or using a gimbal to capture video. Users don’t have to touch the lens at all when zooming, and they can choose from 11 different zoom speeds to match every shade of creative intent, from building an atmosphere with a slow zoom to quickly zooming in to the reaction on someone’s face. This travel-friendly lens weighs just 205 g, which makes it easy to carry and light enough for most gimbals. The lens barrel doesn’t get longer or shorter when focusing or zooming, enabling optimal balance when shooting handheld, and there’s no need to re-balance a gimbal after zooming. In-lens Vibration Reduction ensures clear, blur-free shots whether walking and talking while filming or panning handheld. And a minimum focus distance of just 0.19 m delivers sharp results when shooting up close to a subject: perfect for getting creative with wide angles!

Additionally, the in-lens Vibration Reduction technology guarantees crystal-clear, blur-free shots with the Nikon Z 12-28mm lens, whether you're on the move, capturing footage while on the go, or smoothly panning without the aid of additional equipment. With a minimal focusing distance of just 0.19 meters, this Nikon Z 12-28mm lens delivers stunningly sharp results when shooting up close to your subject, offering endless possibilities for creative wide-angle photography.

Dynamic 12-28 mm zoom range

You can easily fit the whole scene in, or fit yourself into the frame, with this versatile ultra-wide-angle zoom lens. Go for sweeping views that will make your audience feel like they’re really there, or create a sense of space when shooting in cramped indoor locations. For unusual perspectives or more subject detail, a minimum focus distance of just 0.19 m delivers razor-sharp results when you move closer.

 

It’s all about the power zoom

The power zoom function lets you zoom smoothly and steadily without touching the lens. It’s ideal if you’re shooting your own vlogs or using a gimbal to capture video. Zoom in or out using assignable buttons on your Nikon Z camera body. Or use the Nikon ML-L7 Remote Control, or SnapBridge app, to control the zoom remotely.

 

Creative zooming at your fingertips

Want to build the atmosphere with a slow zoom, or quickly zoom in on someone’s reaction? You can zoom from an ultra-wide to a wide angle of view in a smooth 36 seconds. Or cover the same range in just over half a second with a fast-and-hard zoom! With 11 settings to choose from, you get precise control over the zoom speed you want to use.

 

Lightweight, balanced, and gimbal friendly

When your zoom lens weighs only 205 g, and is this well balanced, you can just grab it and go. The barrel of this compact, lightweight lens doesn’t get physically longer or shorter when you focus or zoom, so the lens’ centre of gravity remains stable. You get optimal balance whether you’re shooting handheld or using a gimbal.

 

VR keeps it steady

If you’re looking for a rock-steady vlogging lens, this wide-angle power zoom lens delivers. Up to 4.5 stops1 of in-lens Vibration Reduction ensures clear, blur-free shots whether you’re walking and talking as you film or panning handheld. Normal and Sports VR modes in your Nikon Z camera optimise for static or active subjects.

 

Silent control ring

The clickless, customisable control ring is great for shooting video. You can use it to create fluid aperture transitions, or tweak ISO as you film, safe in the knowledge that your footage won't pick up any operational sounds. The knurled ring is also beautifully easy to grip and adjust.
