Nikon has announced its new Nikkor Z 26mm f/2.8 lens, which it describes as “a premium pancake for everyday carry”. Despite being such a small and light lens, it’s designed to cover a full-frame sensor, with Nikon claiming that it “packs a tremendous punch with superior sharpness and beautiful blurred backgrounds” thanks to its f/2.8 aperture. It’s the first lens Nikon has made for the Z system that they consider to be a true “pancake” lens.
It measures less than 1″ in length (23.5mm to be precise) and weighs a mere 125g for shooting things such as street photography, travel vlogs and landscape photography. Nikon says that its small stature and weight have been achieved thanks to an “all-element focusing system” powered by an STM stepper motor for fast and accurate positioning.
