NIKKOR Z 28-400mm f/4-8 VR Full-Frame Z-Mount Lens

Experience unparalleled convenience and exceptional reach with this lightweight super zoom lens. Covering focal lengths from 28mm to 400mm with a 14.2x zoom, it allows for dynamic close-up shots with a minimum focus distance of 0.2m. Weighing just 1.6 lbs and measuring 5.57 inches, it's the lightest in its class for easy portability. Enjoy rock-steady image stabilization equivalent to a 5.0-stop increase in shutter speed, perfect for low-light conditions. The linear MF drive ensures smooth focusing, ideal for both photography and video shooting.

Always be in the right spot
Covering a vast 14.2x zoom range—from 28mm wide shots to 400mm close-ups—this is an ideal superzoom lens for large-field sports, theme parks, travel or anywhere the unexpected is expected.

Super-telephoto details
Finally get to the heart of the action from the sidelines or bleachers with 400mm of reach (600mm equivalent on APS-C size/DX cameras).

Wide street shots
Zoom out to get the entire scene into your shot or capture action that’s happening right in front of you.

Candid snapshots
Vary the look of your shots by using different zoom positions: wide to bring in background elements or tight to isolate your subjects.

Macro-style close-ups
Fill your frame and create beautiful bokeh with a 7.8 inch minimum focus distance and 0.35x reproduction ratio at 28mm.

Video versatility
Great moments don’t wait for a lens change. With the NIKKOR Z 28-400mm f/4-8 VR, you can follow the action wherever it goes.

Fast, accurate autofocus
Powered by a high-speed stepping motor (STM), the NIKKOR Z 28-400mm f/4-8 VR keeps up with fast-moving subjects like athletes, theme park rides and wildlife.

Easy to carry
Just 725 g and 5.6 inches retracted, the NIKKOR Z 28-400mm f/4-8 VR is lightweight and well-balanced, and it doesn’t draw attention like some long lenses. Carry it comfortably on your shoulder or in a sling pack or backpack.

Handheld stability
Leave the tripod and shoot handheld on-the-go. 5.0 stops* of optical Vibration Reduction (VR) keeps dimly lit photos sharp and videos steady. Get an extra boost up to 5.5 stops** when used with a Z series camera that supports Synchro VR.

Dust and drip-resistant
Carefully sealed, especially around moving parts of the lens barrel, for worry-free durability.

Customizable control ring 
Smooth and clickless. Set it to control aperture, ISO, exposure compensation or manual focus.
