In 2010 the CMS experiment collected about 35 pb-1 of data during the first physics run of the LHC accelerator. We present the first measurements of the differential cross section as a function of boson rapidity and transverse momentum for Z bosons produced at 7 TeV and decaying to pairs of electrons and muons. The data are unfolded and corrected for efficiencies, allowing a direct comparison to recent theoretical calculations.
