This lightweight and compact design makes it an incredibly convenient addition to any photographer’s toolkit – even more impressive when you consider its unbeatable price. With the NIKKOR Z 70-180mm f/2.8, you can be assured every image will be as sharp as possible with beautiful background blur that will make your photos truly stand out. Plus, with incredible reach capabilities, capturing amazing shots of events and sporting activities will be easier than ever before.
The f/2.8 difference.
Crafted with the latest in Nikon's design technologies, this incredible lens delivers a maximum aperture of f/2.8 – making it twice as bright as an f/4 lens. With this kind of luminosity, you'll have absolute control over light levels to capture incredibly detailed subjects with extraordinary depth of field.
Beautifully blurred backgrounds.
The shallow depth of field of the f/2.8 aperture combines with the natural compression of the telephoto focal length for a stunning three-dimensional effect.
More detail in low light.
On a Full-frame/FX-format Z series camera with in-body image stabilization, you can slow down shutter speeds to gather even more light without causing camera blur or raising ISO settings.
Cover a huge range of shots with a single lens, from landscapes and snapshots to sports, wildlife and portraits.
Macro-style close focusing.
Get as close to your subject as 10.68 in. at the 70mm zoom position and 2.79 ft. at the 180mm zoom position for photos and videos that reveal the smallest details.
Lightweight design defies convention.
This powerhouse of a lens packs big performance into a smaller package, delivering jaw-dropping sharpness, exquisite bokeh, and stunning colors with every shot. It's 40% lighter than its predecessor — the NIKKOR Z 70-200mm f/2.8 S — because Nikon designed this lens with mobility & efficiency in mind. Every ounce saved matters when you're out capturing the perfect shot! Plus, this telephoto zoom features an advanced focus breathing suppression system to ensure that all your shots remain precise. Whether you're packing up for travel or are just looking for something that won't weigh down your camera bag, get ready for it: Nikon has redefined what it means to be portable!
Suppressed focus breathing.
When recording videos, smoothly transition focus from the foreground to the background with little change to the angle of view.
Tracks eyes with ease.
Capture stunning photos and videos with amazing clarity, speed and precision with this advanced lens featuring autofocus that is powered by a highly accurate stepping motor—ensuring virtually no mechanical noises when tracking your subject. The lens stays whisper quiet so you can comfortably record video without acoustic interference, as well as capture still images using Eye-Detection AF that will always ensure sharp and clear shots.
Add even more reach.
Whether you’re a professional photographer or simply like to take pictures of your favorite animals, this lens gives you the power and flexibility to document those important moments for years to come. The 135-degree angle of view provides wide shots that truly bring out the beauty of nature, while the Advanced SP (Super Integrated Coating) ensures stunningly sharp images. Plus, with the help of a 2x or 1.4x teleconverter, you can instantly increase the focal length up to 360mm (540mm equivalent on an APS-C/DX-format camera or a full frame/FX-format camera in DX-crop Mode).
Resists dust, drips and smudges.
The front element features an antifouling coating that resists dirt, fingerprints, and smudges so the lens stays clean and clear for unbeatable shot results every time. And because the entire lens is sealed against dust and water droplets, you can take in all of the gorgeous outdoor scenery without worry or hesitation. Plus, a silent wave motor keeps everything running smoothly and quietly.
