Widen your vision and zoom into your creative style with this ultra-portable, ultra-wide-angle power zoom lens! From inspiring vlogs to short movies and sharp snapshots, take your ideas where you want them to go.

Dynamic 12-28 mm zoom range

You can easily fit the whole scene in, or fit yourself into the frame, with this versatile ultra-wide-angle zoom lens. Go for sweeping views that will make your audience feel like they’re really there, or create a sense of space when shooting in cramped indoor locations. For unusual perspectives or more subject detail, a minimum focus distance of just 0.19 m delivers razor-sharp results when you move closer.

It’s all about the power zoom

The power zoom function lets you zoom smoothly and steadily without touching the lens. It’s ideal if you’re shooting your own vlogs or using a gimbal to capture video. Zoom in or out using assignable buttons on your Nikon Z camera body. Or use the Nikon ML-L7 Remote Control, or SnapBridge app, to control the zoom remotely. 

Creative zooming at your fingertips

Want to build the atmosphere with a slow zoom, or quickly zoom in on someone’s reaction? You can zoom from an ultra-wide to a wide angle of view in a smooth 36 seconds. Or cover the same range in just over half a second with a fast-and-hard zoom! With 11 settings to choose from, you get precise control over the zoom speed you want to use.

Lightweight, balanced, and gimbal friendly 

When your zoom lens weighs only 205 g, and is this well balanced, you can just grab it and go. The barrel of this compact, lightweight lens doesn’t get physically longer or shorter when you focus or zoom, so the lens’ centre of gravity remains stable. You get optimal balance whether you’re shooting handheld or using a gimbal. 

VR keeps it steady

If you’re looking for a rock-steady vlogging lens, this wide-angle power zoom lens delivers. Up to 4.5 stops1 of in-lens Vibration Reduction ensures clear, blur-free shots whether you’re walking and talking as you film or panning handheld. Normal and Sports VR modes in your Nikon Z camera optimise for static or active subjects.
