Get closer and bolder with the new Nikon NIKKOR Z 70-180mm f/2.8 Lens, Nikon’s latest telephoto zoom lens, which enables creative brilliance with its compact design and exceptional operability

Shoot diverse scenes, from majestic landscapes to detailed portraits with the NIKKOR Z 70-180mm f/2.8 broad focal length of 70-180mm. With the lens, shooting portraits (at the 180mm end) makes all the difference, as its maximum aperture isolates the subject with shallow depth of field and soft bokeh. Users who love capturing landscape photos (at the 70mm end) will appreciate the ability to stop down the lens’ aperture, which creates high-resolution images with clear details.

Ideal for both indoor and outdoor photography, the lens features a zoom lock switch that allows easy operation using the left hand while holding the lens. Furthermore, its dust-and-drip resistant design helps to prevent dust and liquid from entering the lens.

The NIKKOR Z 70-180mm f/2.8, a full-frame/FX-format line-up that embodies creative brilliance, effortless operability, and exceptional optical performance. Housed in a lightweight body, the NIKKOR Z 70-180mm f/2.8 is the newest telephoto zoom lens optimised to capture both stills and video in a compact design.

Performance that goes the distance

Capture sharp images of moving subjects in low-light situations with the NIKKOR Z 70-180mm f/2.8’s ability to take in a large volume of light, simply by setting a faster shutter speed with minimal increase of ISO sensitivity. If you need to go even further, attach a teleconverter to extend the focal length up to 252mm with TC-1.4x and 360mm with TC-2.0x, respectively.

Lighter weight, better portability

The NIKKOR Z 70-180mm f/2.8 weighs approximately 795g with a total length of approximately 151mm, making it an ideal everyday companion during travels and for capturing daily snapshots. The lens features a compact design that lends itself to easy transportation and helps to reduce fatigue during longer shoots, despite being a fast telephoto zoom lens.

Exceptional operability

You will love capturing the finer things in life with the NIKKOR Z 70-180mm f/2.8 AF close-up performance with a minimum focus distance of just 0.27m (at the maximum wide-angle position) and maximum reproduction ratio of 0.48x. And with the optional TC-2.0x teleconverter, the maximum reproduction ratio is 0.96x – achieving images that are close to life-size reproduction.

Shooting fast action movements often produce blurred images due to camera shake. With the NIKKOR Z 70-180mm f/2.8, you can capture sharp images and videos of athletes in action or their favourite furry friends running in the park, thanks to the lens’ fast AF with stepping motor (STM) which enables quick focusing and a quiet AF drive that minimises disruption from unnecessary operational sounds.

Video Optimised

With the NIKKOR Z 70-180mm f/2.8, you can also record videos with a natural shift in focus position, from foreground to background subjects or vice versa, with effective focus-breathing compensation. Capture natural shots with the lens control ring that enables the focus and brightness to be changed slowly and smoothly. Even when the focus point shifts from one subject to another, the angle of view is maintained, creating smooth and natural videos with stable exposure. Regardless of the speed at which the focus ring is turned, the focus position moves in accordance with the rotation angle within the set angle range, enabling videographers to control the level of focus they need.
