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

By B&H Photo's

Bright and versatile, the NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S from Nikon is a workhorse standard zoom, covering wide-angle to portrait-length fields of view. Characterized by its bright f/2.8 constant maximum aperture, this lens is suitable for working in a variety of lighting conditions and also offers increased control over depth of field for isolating subjects and working with selective focus. The optical design incorporates a pair of extra-low dispersion elements along with four aspherical elements, which help to control chromatic and spherical aberrations throughout the zoom range for improved clarity and sharpness. Additionally, ARNEO and Nano Crystal Coats, as well as a Super Integrated Coating, have been applied to suppress flare, ghosting, and surface reflections for improved contrast and color fidelity.

Complementing the optical design, a multi-focus system, which employs two stepping motors, helps to realize impressively fast, accurate, and quiet focus performance, along with full-time manual focus override, to suit both stills and video needs. The lens also has a unique physical design, which incorporates a top OLED information panel that can be used to quickly confirm aperture and focus settings, and an assignable L.Fn button permits making exposure and settings adjustments via the lens. Additionally, a programmable control ring can be set for intuitive adjustment over a variety of camera and exposure settings.

Standard zoom covers a wide-angle to portrait-length range and is designed for FX-format Z-mount mirrorless cameras.
Constant f/2.8 maximum aperture offers consistent performance throughout the zoom range and also benefits working in difficult lighting conditions and using selective focus techniques.
Four aspherical elements are used to reduce spherical aberrations and distortion in order to realize sharp imagery with accurate rendering.
Two extra-low dispersion elements greatly reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations throughout the zoom range in order to produce greater clarity and color rendering.
ARNEO and Nano Crystal Coats are used to prevent ghosting, reflections, and flare in order to realize improved contrast and clarity when working in strong lighting and backlit conditions. The Nano Crystal Coat controls incidental light from a diagonal direction while the ARNEO Coat controls incidental light from a vertical direction. A Super Integrated Coating is also featured on multiple elements to help ensure consistently accurate colors.
Multi-focus system incorporates two separate AF drive units, which are synchronized, to deliver especially fast and accurate focusing throughout the zoom range. This system uses stepping motors, which offer impressively smooth and quiet 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.
Integrated OLED lens information panel allows you to quickly confirm aperture setting, focus distance, and depth of field figures right on the lens in both bright and dark situations.
Assignable L.Fn button works in conjunction with camera based Fn buttons to provide a seamless point for quickly changing exposure settings and other functions.
Specialized electromagnetic aperture mechanism provides greater exposure control stability that is especially beneficial when working with fast continuous shooting rates.
Rounded nine-blade diaphragm promotes a pleasing out of focus quality that benefits the use of shallow depth of field and selective focus techniques.
Dust- and moisture-resistant lens barrel benefits the lens' use in inclement conditions.

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

Excellent sharp lens

By Jeffrey

I already had the latest F mount 24-70/2.8 but I got this for my Z9 because it is faster to focus and it used the Z9 internal VR system. It is also a bit sharper than my F mount lens.

What a difference a great lens makes!

I own a Nikon Z6 and have been using the adaptor and lens for 2 years. The lens I bought originally died in a year. No return or refund from Best Buy. So I have been using a Tamron which has been adequate. I finally bought the Nikkor Z lens and was able to shed the adaptor. The lens is magnificent. I LOVE it. Low light. Fast and accurate. What a blessing!

Beautiful & Fast Lens

From wide-angle to portraits, this is a versatile lens. I took it out last weekend and got some great action shots and portraits of dogs.

Excellent lens that replaces my very fine F mount that requires a FTZ2 adapter. This now lets me switch on internal sensor VR within the camera and it does focus more quickly.

Surprisingly good

Before this lens, I wasn't a fan of Nikon's 24-70mm lenses. I've owned the F-Mount version for about 6 years and I've never really loved the lens or used it much. I prefer primes lenses, so the 24-70 didn't get much use and I didn't feel as if it was all that sharp, compared to a prime lens. I'm trying to lighten my gear bag, so I decided to give this lens a try and I've been pleasantly surprised as just how good it is. It's sharp wide open, but really sings at F5.6. When I travel, this will replace a couple of primes and I won't hesitate to use this lens.

A perfect match

To my surprise I've found this lens to be a terrific match for my Z 7 II, I'd expected the extra 10 Oz over the 4 S to be bulky and a compromise I'd tolerate when needing the 2.8 S speed and that's just not how it turned out. The 2.8 S has rapidly become my every day carry lens for that body. It's a terrifically well handling pair. With the outstanding optical performance I'd expected.

Fantastic

Incredible how well this balances on my Z5. I had been using my F-mount 24-70 2.8 with the adapter until now. Everything functions fine with the adapter but it feels clumsy and a bit overkill on the smaller Z body compared to D750. So this makes it a much lighter/smaller package. And it's just as good, if not better, than the F-mount version. Highly recommend, especially if you want the extra f-stop.

Better than the F mount

This lens is SHARP! I thought the F mount 24-70 was good, but I upgraded to this with my mirrorless bodies and have no regrets.
