Nikon today announced the release of the NIKKOR Z 26mm f/2.8, a slim wide-angle prime lens compatible with full-frame/FX-format mirrorless cameras for which the Nikon Z mount has been adopted. With a total length of approximately 23.5 mm and a weight of approximately 125 g, the NIKKOR Z 26mm f/2.8 is the slimmest AF lens for full-frame mirrorless cameras, and the lightest NIKKOR Z lens. It can be easily stored in a purse or small bag, enabling users to carry it with them on a daily basis.
Adoption of three aspherical lens elements realizes both excellent portability and superior optical performance. Its 26-mm wide-angle focal length and f/2.8 maximum aperture makes it an ideal lens for a wide variety of scenes, from cityscapes to tabletop photos. When mounted on a DX-format camera, the focal length of lens becomes 39 mm (equivalent in 35mm  format), similar to the standard angle of view that is ideal for capturing a wide variety of scenes.
The supplied lens hood has been specially designed to maintain the thinness of the lens, while also taking operability into consideration. It also supports the attachment of a 52-mm filter (sold separately). A dedicated slip-on lens cap that can be attached to either the lens itself or the lens hood is also supplied. Built in stepping motor (STM) enables a highly accurate AF drive. The NIKKOR Z 26mm f/2.8 will be available in early March for approximately $499.95.
