Nikkor 14-24mm f/2.8 Z-mount vs Nikkor 14-24mm f/2.8 F-mount Comparison

By on

Nikkor 14-24mm f/2.8 Z-mount vs Nikkor 14-24mm f/2.8 F-mount comparison.

The NIKKOR Z 14-24mm f/2.8 S is the perfect lens for a wide variety of landscapes, from starry skies and mountain scenes to cityscapes. It allows users to enjoy recording of both stills and videos, with the realistic and dynamic expression characteristic of ultrawide-angle lenses. The NIKKOR Z 14-24mm f/2.8 S is a fast, ultrawide-angle zoom lens that is part of the S-Line of NIKKOR Z lenses. It is the world’s shortest and lightest lens in its class, with a length of approximately 124.5 mm and a weight of approximately 650 g.

Additionally, in comparison to the AF-S NIKKOR 14-24mm f/2.8G ED, point-image reproduction of point light sources, as well as backlight resistance which effectively suppresses ghost and flare even under harsh lighting conditions, have both improved drastically. Despite being an ultrawide-angle lens with a maximum aperture of f/2.8, adoption of a lens with aspherical surfaces on both sides for the front-most element has realized a front surface that is very nearly flat. This enables the attachment of filters via the dedicated lens hood, responding to a variety of photographers’ needs.

The NIKKOR Z 14-24mm f/2.8 S joins the NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S and NIKKOR Z 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S to cover the wide-angle, standard, and telephoto ranges, greatly expanding the possibilities of imaging expression for high amateur and professional photographers alike.
