Nikon Z 28-400mm f/4-8 VR Lens

The Nikon Z 28-400mm f/4-8 VR Lens is Nikon's first ever Z series super-telephoto high magnification lens. This versatile lens is precisely designed for Nikon's Z line of mirrorless cameras, and covers a broad range of focal lengths, from 28mm to400 mm, a first among NIKKOR Z lenses. Experience everything you love up close and personal, with this compact, yet expansive zoom lens. Features include a compact square lens hood that reduces ghosting and allows zooming operation when inverted, a 9-bladed diaphragm that creates flattering bokeh, 21 elements in 15 groups and weather-sealed construction. This 28-400mm and its suite of upgrades make this lens the perfect choice for travel, live events and documentary photography and videography. The most notable upgrades benefit video, including a linear focusing system and a quick, quiet stepping AF motor. The lens has also been designed to suppress focus breathing and its 5.5-stop vibration reduction system supports Synchro VR for improved handheld use throughout the zoom range.

Always be in the right spot.

Covering a vast 14.2x zoom range—from 28mm wide shots to 400mm close-ups—this is an ideal superzoom lens for large-field sports, theme parks, travel or anywhere the unexpected is expected.

One lens to cover all the action.

Super-telephoto details.

Finally, get to the heart of the action from the sidelines or bleachers with 400mm of reach (600mm equivalent on APS-C size/DX cameras).

Wide street shots.

Zoom out to get the entire scene into your shot or capture action that’s happening right in front of you.

Candid snapshots.

Vary the look of your shots by using different zoom positions: wide to bring in background elements or tight to isolate your subjects.

Macro-style close-ups.

Fill your frame and create beautiful bokeh with a 7.8 inch minimum focus distance and 0.35x reproduction ratio at 28mm.

Video versatility.

Great moments don’t wait for a lens change. With the NIKKOR Z 28-400mm f/4-8 VR, you can follow the action wherever it goes.

Fast, accurate autofocus.

Powered by a high-speed stepping motor (STM), the NIKKOR Z 28-400mm f/4-8 VR keeps up with fast-moving subjects like athletes, theme park rides and wildlife.

Easy to carry.

Just 725 g and 5.6 inches retracted, the NIKKOR Z 28-400mm f/4-8 VR is lightweight and well-balanced, and it doesn’t draw attention like some long lenses. Carry it comfortably on your shoulder or in a sling pack or backpack.

Handheld stability.

Leave the tripod and shoot handheld on the go. 5.0 stops* of optical Vibration Reduction (VR) keeps dimly lit photos sharp and videos steady. Get an extra boost up to 5.5 stops** when used with a Z series camera that supports Synchro VR.

Dust and drip-resistant.

Carefully sealed, especially around moving parts of the lens barrel, for worry-free durability.

Thorough dust and drip resistance is not guaranteed in all situations or under all conditions.

Customisable control ring.

Smooth and clickless. Set it to control aperture, ISO, exposure compensation or manual focus.

Linear focus available for video recording.

Convenient by design.

Zoom Lock Switch

Prevents the lens from accidentally extending in transport; added peace of mind.


Vibration Reduction

A Nikon in-lens technology that improves image stability by automatically compensating for camera shake. Lenses that offer VR will feature the abbreviation VR on the lens barrel.

Electromagnetic Diaphragm Mechanism

An electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism in the lens barrel provides highly accurate electronic diaphragm or aperture blade control when using auto exposure during continuous shooting.

ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) Glass

An optical glass developed by Nikon that is used with normal optical glass in telephoto lenses to obtain optimum correction of chromatic aberrations.

Aspherical Lens

A lens with a curved, non-spherical surface. Used to reduce aberrations and enable a more compact lens size. Aspherical lenses minimise coma and other types of lens aberrations, even when used at the widest aperture. They are particularly useful in correcting distortion in wide-angle lenses and help contribute to a lighter, more compact design by reducing the number of standard (spherical) elements necessary. Aspherical lens elements correct these distortions by continuously changing the refractive index from the centre of the lens.

Stepping Motor

NIKKOR Z lenses use a stepping motor for fast, accurate, smooth, quiet autofocus with reduced wobbling. This quiet drive system makes the lenses ideal for use when shooting video.

* Measured in accordance with CIPA standards with VR function set to NORMAL and zoom at the maximum telephoto position.

** Measured in accordance with CIPA standards with VR function set to NORMAL. Available when attached to a full frame/FX-format interchangeable lens mirrorless camera compatible with Synchro VR.
