Review : Nikon Nikkor Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S lens

By on

First reviews of the Nikon NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S full-frame mirrorless lens now available online.

This is the first NIKKOR lens to feature Nikon’s all-new ARNEO coating: a multi-layer coating that is used in conjunction with Nano Crystal Coating for superior anti-reflective performance.

Compared to the AF-S 24-70mm F2.8 for F-mount, the new lens is 25% smaller and 18% lighter. The price of the lens is $2299 and Amazon now lists the shipping date for the Nikkor Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S lens as April 11th.

From Cameralabs verdict :

“The Nikon Z 24-70mm f2.8 S is a general-purpose zoom designed for Nikon’s full-frame Z-series mirrorless cameras and aimed at professional photographers. The first native zoom in the Z series with an f2.8 focal ratio, the Z 24-70mm f2.8 S dispenses with the retracting barrel of the f4 models for a more traditional appearance, but becomes the first with a dedicated manual focusing ring in addition to a separate custom ring, as well as a customisable function button and an OLED display, the latter indicating focal length, aperture, focusing distance and depth-of-field in a similar way to the Zeiss Batis lenses. The lens itself is inevitably heftier than the f4 version in the range, but manages to be shorter and lighter than its Nikkor DSLR equivalent thanks to a new optical design.”

The Nikkor Z Noct 58mm f/0.95 lens will be announced later in 2019. So what we expect from Nikon when it comes to cameras. Upcoming Nikon cameras are expected both in Nikon DSLR and Mirrorless models. Especially for the DSLR cameras, the announcements will happen once the stock lines becomes clear for the new ones. So, you can expect the announcement of these DSLRs from mid-2019.
