Nikon’s ‘new’ Z 28mm f/2.8 is its smallest Z-mount prime yet

Nikon has announced that the Z 28mm f/2.8, a compact and lightweight prime lens for Nikon Z series cameras, will go on sale December 2021. However, while this is the first time it’s been available standalone, it’s not an entirely new lens – but essentially a pure-black version of the kit lens that launched alongside the retro-inspired Nikon Z fc, minus the silver band on the lens barrel.

With a total length of just 43mm and a weighing in at a mere 155g, it’s the smallest and lightest own-brand Z prime lenses. And with a minimum focus distance of just 0.63 ft (0.19m), it’s handy for close-up photography.
