TOKYO – Nikon Corporation introduces the NIKKOR Z 26mm f/2.8, the slimmest[1] and lightest[2] in the NIKKOR Z lens line-up, making it an ideal full-time companion for the Z series cameras. Built for superior optical performance despite its compact form, the full-frame/FX-format lens strikes an optimum balance between advanced functionality and unobtrusive size.

Slim design for everyday use

Measuring 70mm(D) x 23.5mm(L), the NIKKOR Z 26mm f /2.8 is Nikon’s slimmest[1] AF lens for the mirrorless full-frame/FX-format cameras to date. Compact to fit in a purse or bag and light enough to carry without causing fatigue, this pancake lens with its weight at approximately 125g, gives users the freedom to capture whenever inspiration strikes.

The lens’ extremely slim build is made possible with a design that adopts an all-element focusing system, and with an effective arrangement of three aspherical lens elements that further contribute to minimise aberrations, all while maintaining excellent optical performance in a small body.

With its 26mm focal length[3], the lens provides a versatile angle of view to capture dynamic images of various everyday perspectives such as street, cityscapes, landscapes, and portraits.

Superior image quality with easy operation

Despite the lens’ build, it packs a punch in terms of performance. Dynamic images that make the most of background blur and perspective are made possible with the lens’ minimum focus distance of 0.2m, so get closer and witness the superiority of the NIKKOR Z optics. 

Designed to expand the range of scenes and subjects, as well as creative possibilities, users can rely on the lens for everyday use. Whether shooting handheld or in low-light situations, the lens’ bright maximum aperture of f/2.8 provides flexibility to capture sharp and clear images by minimising camera shake with a potential faster shutter speed. Emphasise your subjects, especially useful for capturing portrait shots with bokeh, with the f/2.8 brightness and depth of field. In addition, high-precision autofocus control is delivered by a stepping motor (STM), while accurate focus adjustment on top of a comfortable operation is realised by a control ring.

Designed for seamless usability  

The NIKKOR Z 26mm f/2.8 is the embodiment of precision and sharpness with its dynamic and tiered form, and great attention to detail. A dedicated lens hood helps to retain the slim design of the lens while protecting the protruded parts. Users can also attach a 52mm filter (sold separately) to the lens hood for further creativity.

Feel at ease on never missing out a spontaneous moment with the NIKKOR Z 26mm f/2.8. Its non-retractable barrel design allows users to start capturing immediately without having to extend the lens – a boon for capturing those elusive moments that would be missed if you’re not prepared to shoot them. The lens’ subtle extension means users enjoy a precise look and feel while shooting.

Customise the shooting experience with the lens’ control ring to set frequently used functions such as focus (M/A), ISO sensitivity, aperture, or exposure compensation on the lens itself.

Adding on to the robust qualities of this everyday lens is the dust-and-drip resistant[4] design which helps to prevent dust and liquid from entering the lens. Further protect the slim lens with a dedicated push-on cap that can be attached to either the lens or its hood. Capping off the sophisticated design is the adoption of metal parts and components for a sleek and sophisticated design of form and function.

NIKKOR is Nikon's brand of photographic lenses. The NIKKOR name arose from adding "r", a common practice in the naming of photographic lenses at the time the name was established, to "Nikko", the Romanized abbreviation for Nippon Kogaku K.K., the original name used when the company was established. In November 2018, Nikon announced its milestone achievement of 110 million in total production of NIKKOR lenses for Nikon interchangeable lens cameras.

In November 2023, Nikon celebrated its 90th anniversary for NIKKOR, which has grown into an internationally recognised brand that pushes the boundaries of imaging excellence.
