The Image Doctors #156

Nikon 28-75mm f/2.8 Revisited

We recently got our hands on the Nikon (made by Tamron) 28-75mm f/2.8 Nikkor Z lens. This is a well-made lens that is very good optically, and is far less expensive than the Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8S lens. Much to our delight, the Nikon 28-75mm f/2.8 is an excellent performer for infrared photography (something that the 24-70/2.8S does not do well). Should you get one? It depends on your needs, and what kind of subjects you enjoy photographing.

Many thanks to our friends at B&H Photo for loaning us the Nikon 28-75mm lens to test!

We took a short trip to Tucson, Arizona and we shot infrared photos exclusively. Look for an infrared workshop from us in early 2023!

  1. If I didn’t already have the Nikon Z 14-30 f/4 and 24-70 f/4, I might be interested in the Nikon (Tampon) lenses.

    Looking forward to hearing more about the possible IR workshop. Hopefully the date don’t conflict with some other commitments that I already have.

    Also hope to hear your thoughts on the Tamron Z-mount 70-300mm when you get a chance to try it.
