Product Features:

The f/2.8 difference.

The NIKKOR Z 70-180mm f/2.8 is twice as bright as an f/4 lens. This gives you more control of light, more depth of field and more range of expression.

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.

Telephoto versatility.

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.

The NIKKOR Z 70-180mm f/2.8 is the lightest, most nimble full-frame f/2.8 telephoto zoom we've ever created. It's over 40% lighter and smaller than the NIKKOR Z 70-200mm f/2.8 S with a smaller diameter. This is a go-to lens for being on-the-go.

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.

Autofocus is powered by a highly accurate stepping motor that makes virtually no mechanical noises while tracking your subject—ideal for Eye-Detection AF, recording videos and remaining silent while shooting.

Add even more reach.

Need to get closer to birds, wildlife and sports? Attach a Z series 2x or 1.4x teleconverter and 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 entire lens is sealed to prevent dust and water droplets from getting between you and a great image. The front element features an antifouling coating that resists dirt, fingerprints, and smudges and is easy to clean.

Part of an affordable trio of f/2.8 zoom lenses.

Cover a vast focal length range—from 17mm all the way up to 180mm—with consistent image quality, background blur, low-light performance and operation.

67mm filter diameter.

Share filters with the NIKKOR Z 17-28mm f/2.8 and NIKKOR Z 28-75mm f/2.8 lenses.

Antifouling coat.

Repels dust, water droplets, grease and dirt and easily wipes clean.

Short-throw zoom ring.

Go from 70mm to 180mm with less than 90° of rotation.

Customizable control ring.

Smooth, precise and clickless. Manually adjust focus, aperture, ISO, exposure compensation or linear focus.

Zoom lock switch.

Prevent lens creep while carrying your camera and lens.
