Unlock Your Creativity with the Nikon Z 70-180mm f/2.8

Unlock your creative potential with the new Nikon Z 70-180mm f/2.8, Nikon's latest telephoto zoom lens. This compact and highly operable lens is perfect for capturing stunning images with greater detail and clarity.

The NIKKOR Z 70-180mm f/2.8, is a full-frame/FX-format line-up that embodies creative brilliance, effortless operability, and exceptional optical performance. Housed in a lightweight body, the NIKKOR Z 70-180mm f/2.8 is the newest telephoto zoom lens optimised to capture both stills and video in a compact design.

Performance that Goes the Distance

Capture sharp images of moving subjects in low-light situations due to the NIKKOR Z 70-180mm f/2.8's ability to take in a large volume of light, simply by setting a faster shutter speed with minimal increase of ISO sensitivity. If you need to go even further, attach a teleconverter to extend the focal length up to 252mm with TC-1.4x and 360mm with TC-2.0x, respectively. Combined with the large bokeh and telephoto compression effect, users can capture portraits that stand out, even in situations where the subject is at a distance, with the bright f/2.8 maximum aperture.

Shoot diverse scenes, from majestic landscapes to detailed portraits with the NIKKOR Z 70-180mm f/2.8 broad focal length of 70-180mm. With the lens, shooting portraits (at the 180mm end) makes all the difference, as its maximum aperture isolates the subject with shallow depth of field and soft bokeh. Users who love capturing landscape photos (at the 70mm end) will appreciate the ability to stop down the lens' aperture, which creates high-resolution images with clear details.

Lighter Weight, Better Portability

Small in size yet big on performance, the NIKKOR Z 70-180mm f/2.8 weighs approximately 0.795kg with a total length of approximately 15.1cm , making it an ideal everyday companion during travels and for capturing daily snapshots. The lens features a compact design that lends itself to easy transportation and helps to reduce fatigue during longer shoots, despite being a fast telephoto zoom lens.

Ideal for both indoor and outdoor photography, the lens features a zoom lock switch that allows easy operation using the left hand while holding the lens. Furthermore, its dust-and-drip resistant design helps to prevent dust and liquid from entering the lens.

Exceptional Operability

Users who love capturing the finer things in life will appreciate the NIKKOR Z 70-180mm f/2.8 AF for close-up photography at a minimum focus distance of just 0.27m (at the maximum wide-angle position). The finer AF drive enables focusing on the minimum focus distance. With the maximum aperture, users can achieve a unique soft depiction. Users can get closer and comfortably photograph their subjects with the lens' maximum reproduction ratio of 0.48x. And with the TC-2.0x teleconverter, the maximum reproduction ratio is 0.96x - achieving images that are close to life-size reproduction.

Shooting fast action movements often produce blurred images due to camera shake. With the NIKKOR Z 70-180mm f/2.8, users can capture sharp images and videos of athletes in action or their favourite furry friends running in the park, thanks to the lens' fast AF with stepping motor (STM) that enables quick focusing and a quiet AF drive that minimises disruption from unnecessary operational sounds.

With the NIKKOR Z 70-180mm f/2.8, users can also record videos with a natural shift in focus position, from foreground to background subjects or vice versa, with effective focus-breathing compensation. Capture natural shots with the lens control ring that enables the focus and brightness to be changed slowly and smoothly. Even when the focus point shifts from one subject to another, the angle of view is maintained, creating smooth and natural videos with stable exposure. Regardless of the speed at which the focus ring is turned, the focus position moves in accordance with the rotation angle within the set angle range, enabling videographers to control the level of focus they need.

The NIKKOR Z 70-180mm f/2.8 joins the NIKKOR Z 17-28mm f/2.8 and the NIKKOR Z 28-75mm f/2.8 in a series of zoom lenses that provide f/2.8 maximum aperture options to photographers looking to expand their imaging expression. Nikon will continue to pursue a new dimension in optical performance while meeting users' needs, contributing to the development of imaging culture, with the hope of expanding possibilities for imaging expression.
