Best Nikon Z lenses for Landscape Photography

The ultra-wide mount system of the Nikon Z lenses family allows you to capture more light in the shot. Combined with the short distance between the bayonet and the sensor, this means a significant reduction in brightness in the image’s peripheral areas. The result is new possibilities for capturing details and nuances – right down to the picture’s edge.

Let’s have a look on top z lenses for landscape and nature photography.

Nikon Nikkor Z 35 mm f / 1.8 S

With a 35 mm wide-angle lens specially made for the new full-frame SLR mirror with Nikon Z bayonet, you can cover the subject with its surroundings, making it perfect for street photography, for example.

Ideal for long journeys in nature and taking excellent Landscape images.

Thanks to the larger Z bayonet, it can capture more light, thus suppressing the loss of light at the edge of the field.

Spotlight sources also appear as fine circular areas at the edges of the image field.

Only minimal vignetting and images with rich colors and high contrast is achieved thanks to two ED glass optics and three aspherical optics.

Floating optics ensure accurate focusing over short distances. The lens has a combined focus that is fast, smooth, and noiseless.

The lens uses the vibration reduction built into the Nikon Z6 and Z7. Inside is a command ring. Thanks to the nine circular aperture, you will achieve a really impressive bokeh.

It allows you to shoot in 4K.

Nano Crystal Coat anti-reflective coatings are on the surface, the entire lens is sealed against dust and water droplets, and the front member is coated with a fluoride layer that repels water, dust, and dirt.

The shortest focusing distance of just 0.25 m gives the user exceptional control over the composition – from close-ups to infinity.

Bokeh is beautifully smooth and natural-looking, and the haze commonly found with wide-angle lenses is effectively suppressed, even when shooting in backlight.

This lens provides excellent results in Landscape and Nature photography.
The full-format NIKKOR Z 24mm f / 1.8 S lens is also suitable for shooting movies. Movie creators can shoot with a staggering shallow depth of field.

The balanced perspective of the lens works just as well for overall film shots for filming interviews in chamber interiors.
