  1. Press release: Wide, bright and super-light: Get more of the Story with the new 
NIKKOR Z 17-28mm f/2.8 Capture the Big Picture with Nikon’s Latest Affordable f/2.8 Zoom Lens MELVILLE, NY (September 20, 2022) Nikon Inc. has announced the NIKKOR Z 17-28mm f/2.8, the latest addition to the growing selection of extremely-capable and very affordable f/2.8 zoom lenses. This new full-frame lens combines the versatility of an ultra-wide angle of field view with the benefits of large fixed aperture, putting low light performance and gorgeous bokeh within reach. “The amount of NIKKOR Z lenses continues to increase at a rapid pace, giving all kinds of creators mirrorless lenses built with the latest in optical innovation,” said Jay Vannatter, Executive Vice President, Nikon Inc. “The new NIKKOR Z 17-28mm f/2.8 is derived from the same mutual concept as the recent NIKKOR Z 28-75mm f/2.8 lens, establishing a series of affordable zooms that open a gateway to fast-aperture performance and absolute versatility.” The NIKKOR Z 17-28mm f/2.8 is a lens for storytellers, captivating the viewer with vast landscapes, grand interiors or enveloping their senses with the starry night sky. The combination of the ultra-wide angle perspective and bright constant f/2.8 aperture liberates the creator, turning everyday scenes into impressive images and videos that grab the viewers’ attention or establish the scene. This wide aperture not only enhances the lens’ low light performance, but also creates a gorgeous out-of-focus area to make the subject pop. Scenes that were previously difficult to photograph are easier than ever to capture in vibrant detail, such as a packed dance floor at a wedding reception or a backlit subject within a cityscape. The new NIKKOR Z 17-28mm f/2.8 is ready to go anywhere. This extremely lightweight and portable lens weighs in at only 450 g (15.9 oz), which is approximately 30% lighter than the NIKKOR Z 14-24mm f/2.8. It’s also lighter and more compact than the NIKKOR Z 14-30mm f/4 lens, and uses a 67mm threaded mount for circular polarizers or neutral density filters. The lens’ minimal weight and internal zooming make it easy to pack or carry anywhere, and create an ideal partner for gimbals since the balance of the lens never changes. The lens is constructed for creators who aren’t afraid to go off the beaten path in pursuit of their content. The entire lens is sealed to prevent entry of dust and water droplets¹, while the front element features an antifouling coating which makes it easy to wipe away dirt, smudges and fingerprints. The NIKKOR Z 17-28mm f/2.8 puts an emphasis on sharpness, utilizing an optical formula that employs a Super ED glass element for maximum image quality at all focal lengths. Autofocus speed is blazing fast, thanks to the use of a high-speed stepping motor (STM), working seamlessly with Nikon Z mirrorless cameras to acquire critical focus on faces and eyes within the frame. The STM is also nearly silent, significantly reducing drive noise during video recording. Video content creators will especially appreciate the minimized focus breathing and click-less control ring for smooth exposure transitions. For additional versatility in photos and video, minimum focus distance is a mere 7.56 inches (0.19 m)², letting users get close-up for products and beauty shots with a magnificently blurred background. Pricing and Availability The new NIKKOR Z 17-28mm f/2.8 will be available in late October 2022 for a suggested retail price of $1,199.95*.

  2. Press release: Laowa expands its cine lens series for Micro Four Thirds Venus Optics, the camera lens manufacturer specialized in making unique lenses for photographers and cinematographers, is thrilled to announce the release of four cine lenses and two bundles. Laowa 6mm T2.1 Zero-D MFT Cine The widest rectilinear MFT lens Laowa 6mm T2.1 Zero-D MFT Cine is exclusively designed for Micro Four Thirds cameras, providing the widest rectilinear option for MFT shooters. With a 121.9° angle of view, users are able to shoot in tight space and capture more details in the shot. The closest focusing distance i.e. 9cm/ 3.54” creates a stronger background bokeh effect. The constant maximum t-stop T2.1 is also favorable and flexible to shoot under low-light conditions. “Zero-Distortion” The newly devised optical design contains 13 elements in 3 groups with two aspherical glasses, controlling distortion while keeping it ultra wide. This lens is awarded the “Zero-Distortion” badge that is one of the best choices for filming in tight space and buildings. Moreover, it saves the time of correction in post-production. Extremely short focusing distance The shortest focusing distance is 9cm/ 3.54” which is favorable in creating shallower depth-of-field when shooting close-ups and that helps create stronger background bokeh effect. Small and compact Laowa 6mm T2.1 Zero-D MFT Cine is a tiny and light lens suitable for several uses, like with gimals, handheld, FPV drones etc. The lens weighs around 180g/ 6.35oz and it is measured to be ~?61 x 53mm/ 2.40 x 2.08”.

The lens is designed with a sublime optical distortion control. The 11 elements in 7 groups optical design includes 2 pieces of ED glasses and 2 pieces of aspherical glasses that control the distortion and color fringing to the minimum. Small and compact Extreme compact (?56 x 47mm / 2.20 x 1.85” and 150g / 5.29oz) is the conspicuous character of this lens since it is the smallest in the range. Despite the tiny size, the lens is still able to use a ?49mm screw-in filter which allows quick installation and remain lightweight. The size makes it handy to be filmed with a gimbal and become the favorite of many drone pilots.
