The all-in-one superzoom.
No matter where the action happens—right in front of you, across the playing field or somewhere between—you’ll be able to frame the shot you want. Packing all-in-one convenience and super-telephoto reach into a lightweight package, the NIKKOR Z 28-400mm f/4-8 VR lets you capture more shots in more situations, from right where you are.

The Nikon NIKKOR Z 28-400mm f/4-8 VR Lens is a high-magnification zoom lens that covers a broad range of focal lengths — from 28 mm to 400 mm, a first among NIKKOR Z lenses. It realizes powerful imaging expression by capturing the finest details or facial expressions of distant subjects with approx. 14.2x zoom, the highest in its class*1 zoom ratio.

Even in situations where the distance to the subject continuously changes, such as with sporting events, amusement park attractions and parade shows, users can enjoy shooting in a variety of situations with just this one lens. In addition, with the minimum focus distance*2 of 0.2 m at the maximum wide-angle position and 1.2 m at the maximum telephoto position, this lens is also suitable for capturing close-ups and tabletop photos at short distances. With a maximum reproduction ratio of 0.35x, it is possible to capture subjects in a larger size, allowing for delicate depiction, such as with plants. While in the telephoto range, images in which the background bokeh can be expressed by getting closer to subjects. Although it is a super-telephoto with a range up to 400 mm, the compact and lightweight design gives it a weight of only approx. 725 g, the lightest in its class*1, making it easy to carry around not only while traveling, but for everyday use as well.

The NIKKOR Z 28-400mm f/4-8 VR also adopts a stepping motor (STM) which enables fast autofocus drive, allowing rapid focus on moving subjects, and a vibration-reduction function with performance equivalent to a 5.0-stop*3 increase in shutter speed that is very effective for hand-held shooting. Furthermore, the NIKKOR Z 28-400mm f/4-8 VR supports linear MF operation*4 to facilitate focusing on the intended subject during video recording.

Nikon will continue to pursue a new dimension in optical performance while meeting users' needs, contributing to the development of imaging culture, with the hope of expanding possibilities for imaging expression.
