Nikon announces 28-75mm f/2.8 and 800mm f/6.3
Nikon has announced the NIKKOR Z 28-75mm f/2.8, a new general purpose zoom lens, and confirmed that it is developing a new super telephoto prime - the 800mm f/6.3.
The new lens 28-75mm lens weighs approximately 565g, and has a minimum focus distance of 0.19m that is the shortest among full-frame (Nikon FX-format) NIKKOR Z standard zoom lenses.
The new glass incorporates a stepping motor (STM) into its build, and it also features a click-less control ring and an electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism. There's also dust-and-drip resistant performance, and antifouling performance with a coating applied on the lens’ front-most surface.
The NIKKOR 28-75mm f/2.8 retails for $1,599 and is available for pre-order now.
Finally, Nikon has also confirmed it is working on a new telephoto, the NIKKOR Z 800mm f/6.3 VR S lens. Information is pretty scarce, but Nikon says the new glass will adopt a PF (Phase Fresnel) lens for the first time in a NIKKOR Z model, which will help make the lens 'compact and lightweight'.
