Comments: 16, on the topic: Announcement: Nikon Nikkor Z 28mm 1: 2.8 SE

  • Novel

    Did they do it together with Z fc? It looks good. But if something happens, it is possible to gash at FF, if it does not shoot.

    • Victor

      It was to him that they did, as indicated on the off-site.

      There is still a lot of marketing game written.

    • Oleg

      28mm on the crop narrow, 2.8 bzz claims on the bokeh would be better if 24 / 2.0 did. But for a full shot, it's very tasty. In any case, for a crop, you need a set of crop optics, well, maybe a wiltrox with artisan will help Nikon

      • Novel

        28 is quite normal for a street camera. 24 on Canon is a convenient focal point, with Kf 1.6 - a few meters in total.

        24 / 2.0 they could do, but then it would be a crop lens. And then they swung at full frame, and 24 / 2.0 in this form factor at full frame is unrealistic, expensive or bad.

        But in principle, if you are already making a lens specifically for the camera, then it is not necessary for ours and yours, let it be an uncompromising quality. But what do we want from a dying company.

      • Novel

        a few meters in total => a few MILLimeters in total [difference]

        • Oleg

          Yes, we need solutions specifically for the crop, they made a pancake like a kenon one for ef-m. And so buy a camera, but we ourselves do not yet know whether we will develop the system. They seem to have 40 / 2.0 ready for a full frame. Finally, they paid attention to the amateurs, but this is all for a full shot.

      • Dim

        28 * 1,5 = 42mm, is it narrow? And the most common focal 50 mm, how is it? Super body photo, apparently? Very interesting!

        • Oleg

          And this is already a taste for someone 50 mm, someone 35 mm. Equivalent on a 42/4 crop, nothing at all, it's not a cheap 50 / 1.8 on a full frame by no means

        • Oleg

          This is the whole Nikon, we ourselves do not know whether we will develop the crop segment or not, but as a staff here is a full-frame lens, which on the crop simply turns into a stub

          • Victor

            But small and stylish and “the focusing ring repeats the texture of that very retro lens” (c) from the official site.

            That's all. Nickn is no longer a cake. Return the old nickname with its hundred-dollar bestseller 35 / 1.8 for the crop)) Only for the mirrorless one)) Well, this is in no way, really. Almost 2 years have passed since the release of Z50 and there are still 2 funny plastic crop-dark zooms and a full-frame "stylish fashionable youth", but here you have another dark zoom)))

            • Oleg

              Well, you could have released a 24 / 2.0 camera under the camera, a canon sells this for $ 150, I will add it in a stylish retro design

              • Novel

                22/2, rather.

            • Ivan

              And I'm still waiting for them to start using the capabilities of the shortest segment and the widest mount among their UPC-competitors, in order to finally start releasing the high-aperture lenses promised three years ago. So far, with one exception, there are repetitions of mirror counterparts in focal and aperture. I do not argue that the lenses are of better quality and with higher resolution. It's about aperture ratio.

              • Novel

                I'm afraid no one will wait.

  • B. R. P.

    Zakos under Series E :)

    • Dim

      I have old Nikon lenses with this design and not E.
