Nikkor Z 28mm f/2.8 Lens Specifications

bythom 28mmSE

SE version of the lens shown above (only difference is different ring textures and a silver ring).

Thom's Commentary: A good lens, but remember that it is not S-line, so don’t expect that level of optical performance. This lens works well on both DX (it’s nearly a fast normal lens at 42mm effective) and FX (it's a very small wide angle lens). I don’t call this lens size a pancake, but rather muffin size. The muffin size seems to be restricting the optics a bit, so while you get really good results out through the DX frame edge, the FX borders and corners never really snap. Some might actually like that, as this lens renders more like the old film and DSLR primes than it does the S-line Z-mount ones. Read Thom's Full Review of the 28mm f/2.8 Lens
