Exploring NIKKOR Lenses: Australia – AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm f/2.8E ED VR

Located in Namburg National Park, the Pinnacles are known for their limestone formations. Made up of shells, these pillars date back to millions of years ago when the sand was beneath the sea. To capture the grace and beauty of a dancer amidst the limestone formations, professional Nikon photography Scott A. Woodward and advanced amateur photographer Reuben picked the state-of-the-art AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm f/2.8E ED VR.

Designed with the professionals’ usage in mind, the AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm f/2.8E ED VR embodies a flawless synergy of NIKKOR’s finest imaging technologies and renowned optics. With a 2.9x zoom range and a maximum aperture of f/2.8, this lens allows you to capture everything from landscapes to weddings and portraits with remarkable colour and detail.

The AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm f/2.8E ED VR is the first NIKKOR lens to feature an aspherical Extra-low Dispersion glass element which effectively corrects lateral chromatic aberrations, coma flare at the periphery, as well as distortion and spherical aberration, achieving new levels of optical precision. The built-in Vibration Reduction (VR) system provides a shutter speed effect equivalent to 4.0 stops faster*1 in NORMAL mode for crisp and sharp images shot after shot, even while shooting with the camera handheld.

Stable auto-exposure control is achieved with the incorporation of an electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism, allowing the capture of images with extraordinary quality even during high-speed continuous shooting.

“The Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm f/2.8E ED VR is the most versatile lens in any professional’s camera bag. It’s a perfect lens for today as it takes me from a wide angle to a mid-zoom, which is perfect for the various shots and angles I want to capture,” Scott A. Woodward.
