Nikon Z 28-400mm f/4-8 VR Lens Summary

With an extensive 14.2x zoom range and a lightweight design of just 725g, the Nikon Z 28-400mm f/4-8 VR Lens is an incredibly versatile all-in-one zoom lens. It is designed for full frame (FX) mirrorless Z cameras, where it zooms from a 28mm wide angle to 400mm super telephoto range. Crop sensor cameras (DX) benefit from a 1.5x crop factor, resulting in a range of 42-600mm, which is equally versatile, and enables you to capture even more distant subjects.

With this range you can photograph everything from landscapes and portraits to sports and wildlife, and of course this is also an excellent travel option, allowing you to bring just one Nikon Z lens and still get all of the shots.

Nikon has integrated effective optical vibration reduction (VR) to ensure sharp results while shooting handheld, which is especially useful in low-light conditions. The lens delivers an impressive 5-stops of shake compensation, or 5.5-stops when paired with a compatible camera with Synchro VR.

Results are excellent thanks to an optical design which includes special aspherical and ED elements, and you can capture close-up macro images with a high magnification, allowing for even more creative versatility.

If you use camera lens filters you may already have ones which fit the common 77mm filter thread found on the Z 28-400 lens, and outdoor creators will appreciate the reliable weather sealing, which helps to keep dust and moisture out.

There are lots of benefits to using an all-in-one superzoom lens, and the Nikon Z 28-400mm f/4-8 VR combines virtually every feature you need to capture great results across a huge variety of styles. These include the effective optical design with special elements to render great image quality, fast and quiet AF and effective built-in vibration reduction using voce coil motors.

Versatility is further extended by close minimum focus distances across the zoom range, plus the high maximum magnification, which allows you to capture close-up images where the subject covers almost the whole frame.

Other benefits of the Nikon Z 28-400mm lens include the customisable control ring, weather sealing and perhaps most importantly the lightweight design. This ensures you’ll bring it with you wherever you go, as the only option you need for travel and everyday photo walks.
