Nikon Nikkor Z 24-70mm F2.8 S lens

Nikon has just officially announced the new Nikon Nikkor Z 24-70mm F2.8 S lens. It is a standard zoom lens for the company’s full-frame mirrorless system, featuring 17 elements, two of which are ED glass and four are aspherical, plus Arneo and Nano Crystal coatings. A small OLED screen on the lens barrel can display aperture, focal length, focal distance and depth-of-field. This new lens costs $2,296.95, available for Pre-Order at Amazon/ B&H/ Adorama. It will start shipping on April 30, 2019.


  •  Standard zoom covers a wide-angle to portrait-length range and is designed for FX-format Z-mount mirrorless cameras.
  • Constant f/2.8 maximum aperture offers consistent performance throughout the zoom range and also benefits working in difficult lighting conditions and using selective focus techniques.
  • Programmable Control Ring is, by default, set to adjust manual focus, but can also be used to control aperture or exposure compensation.
  • Integrated lens information panel allows you to quickly confirm aperture setting, focus distance, and depth of field figures right on the lens.
  • Assignable L.Fn button works in conjunction with camera-based Fn buttons to provide a seamless point for quickly changing exposure settings and other functions.
  • Specialized electromagnetic aperture mechanism provides greater exposure control stability that is especially beneficial when working with fast continuous shooting rates.
  • Dust- and moisture-resistant lens barrel benefits the lens’ use in inclement conditions.
