Just a few weeks in the past, I acquired Nikon’s new Nikkor Z 17–28mm F2.8 lens to seize some pattern pictures. Whereas I used to be keen and ready to take action, mom nature had different plans, giving me dreary day after dreary day for 2 weeks.
Fortunately, my brother had a marriage developing, so I held off till this previous weekend to throw the lens on a Nikon Z7 II (additionally offered by Nikon for testing with this lens) and snapped some photographs all through the occasion. The above gallery showcases an array of lighting situations at numerous apertures and focal lengths.
Total, my expertise with the lens was a nice one. That is my first time capturing with a full-frame Nikon digicam (DSLR or mirrorless) and the lens appeared to be a stable wide-angle pairing with the Z7 II. Autofocus was extremely quick from what I might inform and I don’t ever keep in mind listening to the AF motors at work.
I’m not a fan of Nikon omitting a bodily AF/MF swap, as I’ve turn into accustomed to on almost each different lens I’ve shot with, however Nikon’s customizable ‘i’ menu did make it pretty easy to modify between autofocus and handbook focus. And whereas the management ring does double as a handbook focus ring, it was extremely slim and didn’t really feel nice to make use of.
That mentioned, this lens is designed to be primarily used with autofocus and to that finish, it excels. It’s additionally extremely mild for the quick F2.8 most aperture is affords. A lot in order that when held alongside Nikon’s Nikkor Z 24–70mm F4 S lens, this one nearly felt hole inside.
