Nikon releases the NIKKOR Z 70-180mm f/2.8 telephoto zoom lens

Nikon Corporation has today announced the release of the NIKKOR Z 70-180mm f/2.8, a telephoto zoom lens that is compatible with full-frame/FX-format mirrorless cameras for which the Nikon Z mount has been adopted.

The NIKKOR Z 70-180mm f/2.8 is a telephoto zoom lens that covers a full range of focal lengths with a constant fast maximum aperture of f/2.8. Compact and lightweight with a total length of approximately 151 mm* and a weight of approximately 795 g, it can easily be taken anywhere despite being a fast telephoto zoom lens.

The fast f/2.8 maximum aperture, combined with the large bokeh and compression effect that are characteristic of a telephoto lens, supports impressive portrait photography. The NIKKOR Z 70-180mm f/2.8’s ability to take in a large volume of light enables sharp capture of moving subjects with less blur and noise, even in low-light conditions — for example, when shooting indoor sporting events. Users can also enjoy changing the feel of their images from the soft rendering achieved at maximum aperture to sharp and clear rendering of the finest details by stopping down the aperture.

The adoption of a stepping motor (STM) enables fast autofocusing. In addition, the autofocus can also be used when shooting close-up. With a minimum focus distance of just 0.27 m at the maximum wide-angle position and a maximum reproduction ratio of 0.48x, the NIKKOR Z 70-180mm f/2.8 can be used to shoot close-ups of flowers and animal faces that fill the frame — for both stills and video. With just this single lens, users are able to explore a highly diverse range of creativity.
