Superb Photos and Videos Made Simple

Create with ease with the NIKKOR Z DX 12-28mm f/3.5-5.6 PZ VR. This is the first NIKKOR Z lens with power zoom with linear drive - giving you remote-control operation, minimal sound disruption and an internal zoom mechanism that won't shift its centre of gravity. Keep a stable balance even when shooting with a camera attached to a compatible tripod grip or gimbal. Plus, you can shoot videos with silent operation, perfect for quiet locations or when trying to capture that famous street cat.

Customise the shooting experience by choosing preferred zoom options without having to touch the lens itself. Activate power zoom directly from the dedicated button on the camera body, or with the ML-L7 Remote Control enabled with Bluetooth connection. Users can also remotely activate power zoom with Nikon's PC software and compatible smart devices app.

For a more tactile yet smooth experience, rotate the zoom ring to enable power zooming automatically and adjust the zoom position according to its rotation angle. Zooming in and out is made easy with the zoom speed setting in 11 steps. In addition, power zoom works well even when shooting with the MC-N10 remote grip and gimbal.

Focus on nailing consistent footage while the lens takes care of accidental shaking and vibration. Enjoy the freedom to capture sharp and clear stills and videos, even in low-light situations such as during sunsets, with a Vibration Reduction (VR) effect of up to 4.5 stops. Take the stress out of capturing fast-moving subjects when you pair the NIKKOR Z DX 12-28mm f/3.5-5.6 PZ VR with the Z 30, Z fc or Z 50, and use SPORT mode to enhance VR effect and achieve stable footage.

Wider, Brighter, Better

Whether capturing the everyday magic of moments, expressive selfies, or dynamic landscapes, the NIKKOR Z DX 12-28mm f/3.5-5.6 PZ VR lets you go wide and get creative with ease, thanks to its focal length range of 12-28 mm (equivalent to 18-42 mm when converted to 35mm format). Users won't have to worry about carrying multiple lenses as this lens allows for various expressions, from ultrawide shots emphasising perspective to portraits with dreamy bokeh. Produce brighter stills and videos with its wide zoom range as the high flexibility of the Z system's design allows the lens to capture more light.

Users who enjoy capturing close-up shots of nature such as flowers and insects, and tabletop photos featuring food, products, or jewellery, can get close to their subjects with the lens' maximum reproduction ratio of 0.21x and a minimum reproduction ratio of 0.19m.

Lighter Weight, Better Grip

Small in size but comprehensive on features, the NIKKOR Z DX 12-28mm f/3.5-5.6 PZ VR weighs approximately 0.20 kg, an ideal everyday companion for users. Compact enough to fit in a purse or bag and easy to carry around, it is ready to capture whenever inspiration strikes.

Furthermore, its dust-and-drip resistant design helps to prevent dust and liquid from entering the lens. Users can also focus on their subject in frame and quickly adjust to their preferred setting with the lens control ring to set frequently used functions such as focus (M/A), ISO sensitivity, aperture, or exposure compensation. Rounding off the elegant look of the lens is the distinctive design of the zoom ring and control ring thereby setting them apart to enable smooth operation.
