Nikon NIKKOR Z 26mm f/2.8 Lens

The slimmest and lightest Z series lens

Less than one inch thick, featherlight, and packed with image quality, the NIKKOR Z 26mm f/2.8 is a pancake prime born for the streets. It transforms your camera into the smallest version of itself, encouraging you to shoot in more places, more often. And it rewards you with lifelike sharpness, beautifully blurred backgrounds, versatile low-light performance, and a creative field of view.

Take your camera everywhere

The NIKKOR Z 26mm f/2.8 makes your camera so compact and portable, you won’t want to leave home without it. And it’s discreet, great for grabbing candid shots without drawing attention.

All-element focusing keeps it small

A space-saving new focusing system uses a stepping motor (STM) to move all the lens elements in unison. This reduces the overall barrel length and produces remarkable consistency across the focus range from approx. 8 inches to infinity.

Street smart focal length

From creative wide shots to environmental portraits, stills, or videos, the NIKKOR Z 26mm f/2.8 is an ideal street lens. It can feel natural like eyesight or highly artistic, all depending on your framing. And it's a familiar view, one imitated by higher-quality smartphones.

When attached to an APS-C size/DX-format camera like Z 30, Z 50 or Z fc, the field of view is closer to 39mm.

Beautiful background blur

Shoot wide open at f/2.8 to give your photos and videos a shallow depth of field. Make sharp subjects stand out against softly blurred backgrounds with large, round bokeh.

Crisp low-light shots

The combination of the larger Z mount and the fast f/2.8 aperture lets in ample light, so you can turn up the shutter speed to prevent blur or shoot videos in whatever light is available.

Creative closeups

Get as close as 8 inches from your subject and use the wide 26mm perspective, shallow depth of field and lifelike sharpness to transform the ordinary into the extraordinary.

Streamlined for sharpness

A masterfully engineered optical formula that includes three Aspherical (AS) lens elements, produces maximum sharpness with minimal spherical aberration and field curvature.

Sleek hood that accepts standard filters

The included lens hood's clever design both protects the front element and accepts convenient 52mm threaded filters.
