Nikon NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S Lens

The Nikon NIKKOR Z 2470mm f/2.8 S is a standart zoom lens for Nikon Z series mirrorless cameras; it features a constant f/2.8 aperture, providing sharp images and beautiful bokeh.

Compared to the AF-S 24-70mm F2.8 for F-mount, the new lens is 25% smaller and 18% lighter, with a totally redesigned optical formula comprising 17 elements in 15 groups. Additionally, the NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S is the first NIKKOR lens to feature Nikon’s all-new ARNEO coating: a multi-layer coating that is used in conjunction with Nano Crystal Coating for superior anti-reflective performance.

The new NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S will be available in the spring of 2019 with a price tag of $2299. Here’s a short video in which photographer Ami Vitale shares her impressions of the lens and some sample photos shot with it:
