Nikon NIKKOR Z 24-200mm f/4-6.3 VR Lens Delayed

By on

Just like the NIKKOR Z 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S lens ($2,596.95 – at B&H Photo Video/Adorama/Amazon), Nikon Japan has also delayed the shipment of NIKKOR Z 24-200mm f/4-6.3 VR lens.

The NIKKOR Z 24-200mm f/4-6.3 comprises 19 elements in 15 groups with two ED, two aspherical and a single aspherical ED element. Built-in stabilization is rated to 4.5 stops and the lens uses a seven-blade aperture. It uses only the newer Arneo coating to reduce flare – no Nano Crystal Coating. The 24-200mm accepts 67mm filters.

At just 570 g, the compact NIKKOR Z 24-200mm f/4-6.3 VR is the perfect grab and go lens for all-day versatility and convenience. The full frame NIKKOR Z 24-200mm f/4-6.3 VR is a versatile all-in-one zoom lens that covers every shot along the way with remarkable true to life detail.
