With a compact and lightweight design, the Nikon Z DX 12-28mm f/3.5-5.6 PZ VR Lens is a highly portable ultra wide angle zoom lens for crop sensor Nikon mirrorless cameras. At just 205g this compact little zoom is perfectly balanced on any DX camera, such as the Nikon Z Fc and Z 50.

The Z DX 12-28mm lens also features internal focusing, with a unique power zoom design, which enables you to zoom incredibly smoothly at various speeds to suit your content. What’s more, the power zoom can be controlled entirely without touching the lens, using programmable camera buttons, an optional remote controller or the Nikon App. It also boasts a close 0.19m minimum focus distance and built-in vibration reduction, which reduces camera shake by up to 4.5-stops.

The 1.5 magnification factor results in a full-frame equivalent 18-42mm zoom range, which makes the ultra wide Nikon mirrorless lens particularly well-suited to vlogging and video content, as well as for stills photography.

With a unique power zoom design, the Nikon Z DX 12-28mm f/3.5-5.6 PZ VR Lens is ideal for video creators and vloggers, as well as photographers who enjoy ultra wide angle shots and close-ups. The power zoom enables more creative videos and vlogs, with smooth and steady zooming without needing to touch the lens itself.

You can simply zoom in using programmable buttons on the mirrorless camera body, use an optional camera remote controller, such as the ML-L7 Remote, or the SnapBridge app to control the zoom remotely.


With the power zoom feature you can create various zoom speeds for your footage from 11 presets. Whether you want attention grabbing fast zooming or slow, steady slow zooms, this features allows for precise control between 36 seconds and just over 0.5 seconds zoom throughout the entire range.


Enjoy up to 4.5-stops of built-in vibration reduction (VR) to help you capture blur-free video even when walking and talking or panning handheld. Choose between Sports VR and Normal modes in the camera body to optimise VR for the subject you’re shooting. For stills capture enabling VR does not reduce high-speed burst, helping to keep up with the action, now matter how fast paced it is.


With a well-balanced internal zoom design and low 205g weight, the Z DX 12-28mm f/3.5-5.6 PZ VR Lens is perfect for mounting onto a camera gimbal and stabiliser, such as the lightweight DJI RS 3 Mini.

Internal zooming means that the lens barrel doesn’t get longer or shorter while zooming in or out, so it stays perfectly balanced with a stable centre of gravity. Whether you’re shooting handheld or with a stabiliser this is a great feature to have.


Nikon is renowned for manufacturing extremely high-quality lenses and this model features an optical design with 12 elements in 11 groups. These include one ED and one aspherical special element, which deliver beautifully sharp and well controlled images throughout the zoom range. This is coupled with a 7-blade rounded aperture diaphragm and 0.21x maximum reproduction ratio.


Another great feature for videographers is the control ring, which allows for silent, clickless aperture changes when shooting video. The ring can be used for ISO control as well as smooth aperture changes, in order to reduce unwanted click noise, whilst being extremely tactile thanks to a knurled easy to grip ring.


This compact ultra wide mirrorless zoom has been sealed across the lens barrel and all moving parts, which is perfect for outdoor content creators who can be caught out during a downpour and shoot in dusty environments.
