    Spanning a versatile telephoto zoom range, this Nikon NIKKOR Z 70-180mm f/2.8 Lens features a lightweight and compact design well-suited to the needs of sports and wildlife image makers. The lens offers a constant f/2.8 maximum aperture throughout the entire zoom range, making it well-suited for working in low-light situations and capturing your subject with a shallow depth of field. Additionally, the lens provides excellent close-focusing performance, allowing you to capture small details in a dynamic and eye-catching way.

    Designed for use with FX-format Z-mount mirrorless cameras, this full-frame lens is also compatible with DX-format models where it provides a 105-270mm equivalent focal length range.
    Twice as bright as an f/4 lens, the lens offers a constant f/2.8 maximum aperture throughout the entire zoom range, making it well-suited for working in low-light situations and capturing your subject with a shallow depth of field.

    Providing excellent close-focusing performance, the minimum focusing distance at the 70mm zoom position is less than 1". Meanwhile, when the lens is fully extended at the 180mm zoom position, the minimum focusing distance is an impressive 2.8', allowing you to capture small details in a dynamic and eye-catching way.

    Compatible with Nikon Z teleconverters, this lens offers you the ability to extend your effective focal length to 252mm with the 1.4x teleconverter and up to 360mm with the 2x teleconverter.
    An excellent choice for video applications and still photography, when recording video footage, the lens allows you to smoothly transition focus from the foreground to the background with little change to the angle of view.
    Features a compact and lightweight design providing maximum portability for on-the-go photographers, videographers, and content creators.

    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.
