Customisable Control Ring

This makes this a perfect lens for any vlogger or videographer with its 79° angle of view you can capture fantastic wide shots or get closer to the detail with its minimum 20cm focusing distance.

 



Suppressed Focus Breathing

This lens is ideal for capturing clear, smooth video footage thanks to its suppressed focus breathing. Capture standout shots from your unique perspective with this wide-angle lens.

Nikon introduces the slimmest, lightest Z series full-frame pancake lens ever. With a versatile 26 mm focal length, short minimum focusing distance, and sharp NIKKOR Z optics, this wide-angle prime lens might be small but it’s ready for big ideas. Photographers will be able to capture standout shots from their own unique perspective.

Weighing 125 g (approx.), and just 23.5 mm long (approx.), this super-slim and lightweight wide-angle prime lens is brilliant for creative, on-the-spot photography. It’s so unobtrusive it gives discretion a new name. Even the included bayonet hood doesn’t add any real bulk, and the hood can be fitted with 52 mm filters for even more creative options. Despite its diminutive size, this pancake lens has a reassuringly solid build—the lens mount is metal, and the lens barrel and all moving parts are sealed to protect from dust and water droplets.

Equally at home shooting street scenes, landscapes, interiors, and more, the NIKKOR Z 26mm f2.8 lets photographers turn every opportunity into a creative opportunity. The wide Z mount combines with the lens’ wide f/2.8 maximum aperture to deliver great low-light performance, and photographers can use faster shutter speeds to freeze action without sacrificing brightness. For closer work, focusing is sharp with the camera just 20 cm away from subjects—and bokeh can be accentuated at close distances for artful-looking background blur. Video shooters and vloggers can take advantage of the lens’s wide field of view and suppressed focus breathing to shoot great-looking footage, ideal for everything from sweeping wide shots to interviews that create a real sense of place.

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.
