Offering the highest zoom ratio in its class, plus undeniable adaptability, this new lens will quickly become a must-have for travel, sports, backyard wildlife and more!

The Nikkor Z 28-400mm f/4-8 VR is an all-in-one superzoom designed for a broad range of focal lengths. From 28mm to 400mm, landscapes to distant vistas, up close or far away, the extreme versatility and powerful capabilities of the 14.2× zoom will have you capturing more shots from right where you are. Despite being a super-telephoto zoom lens with a range of up to 400mm, the Nikkor Z 28-400mm f/4-8 VR is the lightest in its class, weighing just about 725 g (1.6 lbs), making it an excellent travel lens. 

Being a superbly versatile lens, it's no surprise that the Nikkor Z 28-400mm f/4-8 VR has a remarkably close minimum focus distance of 20 cm (7.8 in) at the maximum wide-angle position and 1.2 m (3.9 ft) at the maximum telephoto position. The maximum reproduction ratio of 0.35x lets you capture close-ups at short distances for food, flowers and animals, while shooting far away, you can fill the frame with your subject and still have a pleasing blurred background.

The Nikkor Z 28-400mm f/4-8 VR utilizes a stepping motor (STM), which enables fast and quiet autofocusing, allowing immediate focus on moving subjects. The lens also features a vibration-reduction (VR) function with a performance equivalent to 5.0 stops, which helps achieve sharp photos and stable video with ease, even when handheld.

Key features of the Nikkor Z 28-400mm f/4-8 VR:

  • Covers a broad range of focal lengths from 28mm to 400mm, with a 14.2× zoom, a first among Nikkor Z lenses.
  • A minimum focus distance of 0.2 m (20 cm) at the maximum wide-angle position and a maximum reproduction ratio of 0.35× allows users to get closer to their subjects for dynamic expression.
  • A total length of approx. 141.5 mm (5.57 in.) and a weight of approx. 725g (1.6 lbs) makes it the lightest lens in its class and an easy lens to carry and shoot hand-held.
  • Stable VR performance equivalent to a 5.0-stop increase in shutter speed effectively reduces blurring in dimly lit surroundings and with hand-held shooting. When paired with a compatible camera, Synchro VR can be activated to achieve up to 5.5-stop stabilization by combining in-camera VR and lens VR.
  • Stepping motor (STM) enables high-speed AF drive.
  • Support for linear MF drive enables smooth focusing, which is especially useful for video shooting.
  • Comes with a compact, square lens hood that combines superior performance and usability.
