Nikon NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/4 S Lens
Key Features
  • Z-Mount Lens/FX Format
  • Aperture Range: f/4 to f/22
  • Aspherical Extra-Low Dispersion Element
  • Three Aspherical Elements
Covering a useful range of focal lengths, the NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/4 S is a versatile zoom, spanning wide-angle to portrait-length perspectives. Its constant f/4 maximum aperture maintains a consistent exposure throughout the zoom range and also helps to realize a more compact and lightweight alternative to an f/2.8 zoom. In regard to the optical design, a unique aspherical extra-low dispersion element, in addition to three aspherical elements, is used to help reduce chromatic aberrations and distortions throughout the zoom range in order to achieve high image sharpness and clarity. Both Nano Crystal and Super Integrated Coatings have also been applied to control flare and ghosting for greater contrast and color rendering in bright and backlit conditions.

Nikon NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/4 S Overview

Covering a useful range of focal lengths, the NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/4 S is a versatile zoom, spanning wide-angle to portrait-length perspectives. Its constant f/4 maximum aperture maintains a consistent exposure throughout the zoom range and also helps to realize a more compact and lightweight alternative to an f/2.8 zoom. In regard to the optical design, a unique aspherical extra-low dispersion element, in addition to three aspherical elements, is used to help reduce chromatic aberrations and distortions throughout the zoom range in order to achieve high image sharpness and clarity. Both Nano Crystal and Super Integrated Coatings have also been applied to control flare and ghosting for greater contrast and color rendering in bright and backlit conditions.

Complementing the optics, a stepping motor provides quick, quiet, and precise autofocus performance along with full-time manual focus override to suit both stills and video applications. A programmable control ring can be set for intuitive adjustment over a variety of camera and exposure settings. Additionally, the lens has a button-less retractable barrel to realize a more compact form factor when not in use.

Standard zoom covers a wide-angle to portrait-length range and is designed for FX-format Z-mount mirrorless cameras.
Constant f/4 maximum aperture affords consistent performance throughout the zoom range and also contributes to the relatively lightweight design and compact form factor.
A unique aspherical extra-low dispersion element is incorporated into the optical design, along with three additional aspherical elements, to greatly reduce chromatic and spherical aberrations, distortion, coma (comatic aberration), and flare for consistent edge-to-edge sharpness and illumination.
A Nano Crystal Coat, along with a Super Integrated Coating, has been applied to lens elements to minimize surface and internal reflections for a marked reduction in lens flare and ghosting.
Stepping motor delivers impressively smooth, quiet, and fast autofocus performance that is well-suited to both stills and video applications. Full-time manual focus override is also possible and an internal focusing design is used, where only the internal lens groups are moved during focusing, to maintain the overall length of the lens during use and to promote faster focusing speeds.
Programmable Control Ring is, by default, set to adjust manual focus, but can also be used to control aperture or exposure compensation.
Specialized electromagnetic aperture mechanism provides greater exposure control stability that is especially beneficial when working with fast continuous shooting rates.
Rounded seven-blade diaphragm promotes a pleasing out of focus quality that benefits the use of shallow depth of field and selective focus techniques.
Exposed elements feature a fluorine coating that affords protection to the optical system against dust, grease, and water droplets.
Dust- and moisture-resistant lens barrel benefits the lens' use in inclement conditions.
Button-less retractable design maintains a compact form factor when the lens is not in use.

The specs say this lens has a programable ring. On my Z7, I have not been able to find the option to program the adjustment ring. I’ve found all the fn button options, but nothing about an adjustment ring. Is this just a misprint or am I missing something?

Does this lens focus as smoothly as the f2.8 or does the focus step quite noticeably like the 14-30?
Asked by: Anonymous
Don't know about the 2.8, but it's not very good, definitely not as bad as the 14-30 though.

I'm trying to determine if my Z 24-70mm f4 lens is normal, or a bad copy. It has such severe vignetting at 24mm and 70mm on subjects farther away, such as landscapes, even with the Z6 'Vignette Control' ON and set to 'Normal.' The vignetting also seems to move or is random. Dark on one side then it shifts in the very next photo to the other side or corner. Is this normal? Is it because of the in body Image Stabilization?
Asked by: Craig
Either your lens hood is on incorrectly or you have a filter that is causing vignetting.

Would this lens be usable for astrological photography?
Asked by: Anonymous
For astronomy photography, it is better to use a lens that is f2.8 or wider such as the 24-70 f2.8. Please take a look at the following link: https://bhpho.to/2GOCMtO Many people also prefer a wider angle lens for astronomy photography such as this 14mm: https://bhpho.to/2SZKCVt

Compared to a mechanical focus lens, how good is this lens’ manual focus?
Asked by: Jacob
For me the manual focus is quite bad, e.g. the Olympus 12-40, even without using the clutch has a much better manual focus. At least it's not as bad as with the 14-30 where you move it one millimeter and it jump to the other side of the focus.
