FLEXIBILITY TO CREATE WITH THE NIKKOR Z 26mm f/2.8

Bangalore February 2023: Nikon India Private Ltd. introduces the NIKKOR Z 26mm f/2.8, the slimmest1 and lightest2 in the NIKKOR Z lens line-up, making it an ideal full-time companion for the Z series cameras. Built for superior optical performance despite its compact form, the full-frame/FX-format lens strikes an optimum balance between advanced functionality and unobtrusive size. The NIKKOR Z 26mm f/2.8 S lens is priced at INR 46,495/- and will be available to purchase from the last week of February.

“The NIKKOR Z 26mm f/2.8 is designed for creators, capturing spontaneous and dynamic moments on the move. The compact and light-weight lens is capable of capturing the vividity of everyday perspective of day-to-day life from the street, cityscapes, to landscapes and portraits,” said Sajjan Kumar, Managing Director – Nikon India Private Ltd.

NIKKOR Z 26mm f /2.8 PRIMARY FEATURES

Slim design for everyday use

Measuring 70mm (D) x 23.5mm (L) and no bigger than an average credit card, the NIKKOR Z 26mm f /2.8 is Nikon’s slimmest1 lens for the mirrorless full-frame/FX-format cameras to date. Compact to fit in a purse or bag and light enough to carry without causing fatigue, this pancake lens with its weight at approximately 125g, gives users the freedom to capture whenever inspiration strikes.

The lens’ extremely slim build is made possible with a design that adopts an all-element focusing system and with an effective arrangement of three aspherical lens elements that further contribute to minimise aberrations, all while maintaining excellent optical performance in a small body.

With its 26mm focal length3, the lens provides a versatile angle of view to capture dynamic images of various everyday perspectives such as street, cityscapes, landscapes, architecture, and portraits.  

Superior image quality with easy operation

Despite the lens’ build, it packs a punch in terms of performance. Dynamic images that make the most of background blur and perspective are made possible with the lens’ minimum focus distance of 0.2m, so get closer and witness the superiority of the NIKKOR Z optics.

Designed to expand the range of scenes and subjects, as well as creative possibilities, users can rely on the lens for everyday use. Whether shooting handheld or in low-light situations, the lens’ bright maximum aperture of f/2.8 provides flexibility to capture sharp and clear images by minimizing camera shake with a potentially faster shutter speed. Emphasize your subjects, especially useful for capturing portrait shots with beautiful bokeh, with the f/2.8 brightness and depth of field. In addition, high precision autofocus control is delivered by a stepping motor (STM), while accurate focus adjustment on top of a comfortable operation is realized by a control ring. 

Designed for seamless usability 

The NIKKOR Z 26mm f/2.8 is the embodiment of precision and sharpness with its dynamic and tiered form, and great attention to detail. A dedicated lens hood helps to retain the slim design of the lens while protecting the protruded parts. Users can also attach 52mm filter to the lens hood for further creativity.

Feel at ease on never missing out a spontaneous moment with the NIKKOR Z 26mm f/2.8. Its non-retractable barrel design allows users to start capturing immediately without having to extend the lens – a boon for capturing those elusive moments that would be missed if you’re not prepared to shoot them. The lens’ subtle extension means users enjoy a precise look and feel while shooting.

Customize the shooting experience with the lens’ control ring to set frequently used functions such as focus (M/A), ISO sensitivity, aperture, or exposure compensation on the lens itself.

Adding on to the robust qualities of this everyday lens is the dust-and-drip resistant4 design which helps to prevent dust and liquid from entering the lens. Further, protect the slim lens with a dedicated push-on cap that can be attached to either the lens or its hood. Capping off the sophisticated design is the adoption of metal parts and components for a sleek and sophisticated design of form and function.
