Fast standard zoom realized as an ideal versatile lens that provides overwhelming rendering quality, whatever the shooting scene
Enter a new age of operability with the NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S. A cutting-edge control ring gives you even more control with extra settings including aperture and exposure compensation. Perfect for capturing smooth stills and movies, this lens also comes equipped with an interactive lens information panel that helps users confirm settings, such as aperture, focus distance and depth-of-field, without having to look into the viewfinder. Extra functions, such as the L-Fn (lens function) button, and its dust and drip resistance, makes the NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S the perfect companion for efficient shooting in any environment.
The NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S is a light and compact lens perfect for photographers on the go – fitting perfectly into the camera bag for a compact mirrorless ecosystem. Comparatively lighter than other fixed aperture zoom-lenses, and featuring a tailored-made lens hood with a felt inner-lining that further reduces light reflection inside the hood, the NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S offers more shooting opportunities in a diverse range of situations.
1. Key Features
The NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S, one of the high-performance S-Line models, is a fast standard zoom lens with f/2.8 maximum aperture covering the frequently used focal-length range from wide-angle 24 mm to 70 mm. Superior optical performance is realized by fully utilizing the latest optical technologies while maximizing the high flexibility in lens design that the Z mount system provides. For the AF drive system, the new “multi-focusing system” is adopted. While contributing to highly accurate, high-speed AF, it achieves an extremely sharp focal plane across the entire shooting range, including close distances, for any scene. Also, the large bokeh effect that the f/2.8 maximum aperture enables, as well as the natural, beautiful bokeh characteristics with minimal coloring, let you bring impressive emphasis to main subjects. Outstandingly high image quality that you might only expect from the highest-class standard zoom lens can be enjoyed from the maximum aperture at all shooting distances.
Portability is an important factor in making this fast standard zoom lens highly versatile. Thanks to the Z mount system that provides substantially improved flexibility in lens design, a compact and light lens body that was previously thought difficult to achieve with an f/2.8 zoom lens is realized while delivering a higher standard of optical performance. The easy-to-carry body with a weight of approx. 805 g and a length of 126.0 mm increases shooting opportunities, enabling creation of imaginative works for both business and leisure/hobby situations, as well as dynamic landscape shots during travel.
The NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S delivers high rendering performance in both still and movie shooting. Genuine movie performance is achieved via the adoption of a variety of features that enable smooth movie expression. It incorporates a control ring to which aperture or exposure compensation setting can be assigned. Smooth and quiet recording is made possible with its click-less operational feel. Also, the operation sounds of AF and diaphragm mechanisms are intensively suppressed to ensure comfortable recording. Focus breathing (shifting of the angle of view when adjusting focus) is effectively compensated for smoother movie recording. Other advanced movie functions include smooth diaphragm control that provides natural transitions in image brightness during recording.
Besides Nano Crystal Coat, the lens also adopts the newly developed anti-reflection coating system, ARNEO Coat. This system is particularly effective for incident light reaching the lens surface from a vertical direction. Together with Nano Crystal Coat, ultra-low reflectance is realized stably over the entire visible light range. Thanks to this, sharp and clear images with minimal ghost and flare effects can be captured even when a light source is located within the frame.
In addition to an easy-to-use control ring that functions independently of the focus ring, a lens information panel is incorporated that enables quick confirmation of aperture, focus distance, depth of field, etc., without looking into the viewfinder. It also adopts a L-Fn (lens function) button, which enhances convenience by allowing an increased number of functions to be assigned. For the lens hood, a hood release is employed to prevent unintentional dropping of the hood. All of these features contribute to the refinement of design and functionality.
The lens body was designed carefully considering dust- and drip-resistant performance. Various areas including movable parts of the lens barrel are sealed to prevent dust and water droplets from entering the body. Nikon's original fluorine coat is applied to the front and rear lens elements, that are likely to get dirty during outdoor shooting. Besides its superb anti-fouling performance, its anti-reflection performance also contributes to obtaining clearer images, whatever the circumstances.
• Electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism provides accurate, stable aperture control even during high-speed continuous shooting
