Nikkor Z 28-400mm f/4-8 Lens Specifications

Z28-400 4-8 angle4

Thom's Commentary: The 28-400mm f/4-8 is another surprising addition to the lineup, mostly because I don't feel it really matches up well with cameras. It's size and weight sort of rules out the Zf users, while the specs tend to rule out the Z7 II and higher users. Which leaves Z5 and Z6 II. Again, the 28mm wide end isn't wide enough for me, but that may not be the case for you. Meanwhile the 400mm end is slow in aperture and likely to have focal length breathing. Nikon claims its usage is wildlife, travel, and all-in-one, if that is important to you.
