Ready, steady, shoot

Shoot videos without worrying about disruption from unnecessary operational sounds, thanks to the smooth and quiet operation of the lens’ STM and ‘click-less’ control ring. With the NIKKOR Z DX 24mm f/1.7, you can shoot with confidence when capturing spontaneous moments. 

Users can also record videos with a natural shift in focus position and brightness level with effective focus-breathing2 compensation from the lens. Even when the focus point shifts from one subject to another, the angle of view is maintained, creating smooth and natural videos with stable exposure.

Light in weight, big on usability

Compact in size yet packed with features, the NIKKOR Z DX 24mm f/1.7 weighs approximately 135g and makes for the perfect daily companion for users to keep in their bag for easy access whilst travelling. Even when the lens is attached to a camera, such as the Z 30, the set-up would only weigh only 540g. Rounding up the features of the lens is the compact design that narrows slightly toward the tip to accentuate its compact size. The NIKKOR Z DX 24mm f/1.7 also comes with a lens hood that features a design that looks natural in combination with the lens.
