    The Lightweight Wide-Angle Storyteller
    A portable ultra-wide-angle zoom perfect for creators, the Nikon NIKKOR Z 17-28mm f/2.8 manages to mix speed and compactness while presenting a broad field of view that's perfect for anything from landscapes to architecture subjects to handheld vlogging applications.

    Lightweight and Compact Design
    Despite the bright f/2.8 design, this manages to remain sleek and lightweight, making it ideal for handheld use, all-day shoots, and a variety of vlogging needs.

    Compared to the NIKKOR Z 14-24mm f/2.8 S, this lens has a smaller diameter, uses more widely available 67mm front filters, and is 30% lighter while retaining the same f/2.8 speed.

    Internal zooming design prevents the lens from extending during use, making it easier to balance while shooting, especially when used in conjunction with a gimbal.
      Perfect for FX-format Z-mount cameras, this smaller lens is also ideal for DX-format bodies and will provide a 25.5-42mm equivalent focal length range.

      Programmable Control Ring is, by default, set to adjust manual focus but can also be used to control aperture or exposure compensation. It has a click-less design, too, that's suitable for video needs.

      Specialized electromagnetic aperture mechanism provides greater exposure control stability that is especially beneficial when working with fast continuous shooting rates.

      Dust- and moisture-resistant lens barrel benefits the lens' use in inclement conditions. There is also an antifouling coating on the front of the lens that resists smudging, fingerprints, and dirt and is easy to clean.
        Smooth and Silent Autofocus
        Stepping motor maintains quick and quiet autofocus performance that's ideal for both photo and video needs.

        An internal focusing design is used, where only the internal lens groups are moved during focusing, to maintain the overall length of the lens during use and to promote faster focusing speeds.

        Minimum focusing distance of 7.5" benefits working with close-up subjects.
        Focus breathing has been suppressed to benefit video use and maintain a consistent field of view when changing focus.
          Ultra-Wide Flexibility
          Constant f/2.8 design maintains consistent performance throughout the zoom range and also benefits both low-light performance and depth of field control.

          The bright design and ultra-wide-angle focal length make this lens suitable for astrophotography needs.

          Broad zoom range suits travel and everyday shooting needs and is especially well-suited to cityscapes, landscapes, interiors, and architectural subjects.

          Rounded 9-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality, benefitting the use of shallow depth of field and selective focus techniques.
            Two extra-low dispersion elements help correct chromatic aberrations and colour fringing for clean, clear colour rendering.

            One Super ED element is also used, which offers even lower dispersion properties and further reduces colour fringing and various other chromatic aberrations.

            Three aspherical elements reduce spherical aberrations and distortion in order to realize sharp imagery with accurate rendering. Additionally, these specialized elements also promote a more compact, lightweight lens design.

              Understanding: Aperture

              Aperture is the opening in a camera lens that controls how much light enters the camera. It's measured in f-stops like f/2.8 or f/8. Lower f-stop numbers mean wider openings, letting in more light and creating a shallow depth of field (blurry background). Higher f-stop numbers mean smaller openings, letting in less light and creating a larger depth of field (more of the scene in focus). Aperture also affects the quality of out-of-focus areas in the image (bokeh).

              Understanding: Lens Types

              Different lenses have different purposes to achieve different styles of images, some popular ones include:
              Prime Lens: Fixed focal length, sharp images, great for portraits and dark settings.
              Zoom Lens: Variable focal length, versatile for different shots and everyday use..
              Wide-Angle Lens: Captures wide scenes like landscapes.
              Telephoto Lens: Magnifies distant subjects, ideal for sports & wildlife.
              Macro Lens: Perfect for close-up photography of small subjects.
              Fisheye Lens: Ultra-wide perspective, creates unique images.

              Understanding: Lens Mounts

              Different camera brands use different lens mounts, which are like connectors that attach lenses to camera bodies. Each mount is specific to a particular brand and camera series. For example, Canon uses the EF and RF mounts, Nikon uses the F mount, Sony uses the E mount for its mirrorless cameras. These mounts dictate which lenses are compatible with which cameras. Some brands offer adapters to use lenses from other systems, but it's essential to ensure compatibility for proper functionality and autofocus performance.

              Understanding: Manual and Autofocus

              Manual focus and autofocus are two ways to adjust the sharpness of a camera lens. With manual focus, you turn a ring on the lens to bring the subject into focus yourself, giving you full control over what appears sharp in the image. Autofocus, on the other hand, relies on the camera's built-in technology to automatically adjust the focus for you, usually by detecting contrast or phase differences in the scene. Autofocus can be convenient, especially for fast-moving subjects or when you need to capture a quick shot, whereas manual focus allows for precise adjustments and creative control over the final image.
