Nikon NIKKOR Z 24-200mm f/4-6.3 Overview

By B&H Photo's

A one-lens solution for working in a wide variety of shooting situations, the NIKKOR Z 24-200mm f/4-6.3 VR from Nikon is an all-in-one 8.3x zoom covering wide-angle to telephoto focal lengths. An advanced optical design, which uses a series of aspherical and ED elements, pairs with both ARNEO and Nano Crystal Coatings to produce sharp and clear image quality with high contrast and accurate color rendering to benefit working in various lighting conditions.

The impressive zoom reach is also benefitted by Vibration Reduction image stabilization, which minimizes the appearance of camera shake by up to 5 stops for sharper handheld shooting. A stepping motor provides quick, quiet, and precise autofocus performance along with full-time manual focus override to suit both stills and video applications. Also, a programmable control ring can be set for intuitive adjustment over a variety of camera and exposure settings.

All-in-one zoom covers wide-angle to telephoto fields of view and is designed for FX-format Z-mount mirrorless cameras, however, can also be used with DX cameras where it will provide a 36-300mm equivalent focal length range.
Two aspherical elements and one aspherical ED element is 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.
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.
Vibration Reduction image stabilization minimizes the appearance of camera shake by up to 5 stops for sharper handheld shooting.
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.
Dust- and moisture-resistant lens barrel benefits the lens' use in inclement conditions.

Pretty Good!

I was finally able to try out this lens on the Nikon Z50. This fall I'm going on a vacation where I will be limited on the gear I can take and I'm hoping this combo will do the trick. While it won't match the equipment I'd otherwise grab, I think this will work out.

Great lens

The 24-120 is my "go-to" daily zoom...remarkable lens. I bought the 24-200 for traveling - for that extra reach. I know its length does not compare to a super zoom, but given the large sensor of the Z7ii I have some cropping room. It did quite well on my first walk around shooting landscape in local park. I was impressed with the sharpness of some of my photos. I will report back after I give it a real workout in Arizona.

Great for hiking and travel

I've had this lens for 1.5 years and love it. I love the versatility of a zoom especially when when carrying multiple lenses may not be an option - like hiking or traveling. This lens, at a fraction of the weight/size and price of the 70-200mm f/2.8, made sense for me. I was pleasantly surprised by its sharpness and, even though it's not the fastest lens, I've been able to shoot handheld in lower-light with the Z6 with no problems. I've hiked all over with it and taken it on several city trips - it fits in a purse and isn't so conspicuous that you feel weird pulling it out when everyone else is using an iphone. Photos for reference: Marmot - versatility of reach at 64mm & 200mm; Mountains/Lake - pretty sharp at f/11; Waterfall - handheld at 1/20s (F/11, ISO 100); Moose - handheld at 1/500s (f/6.3, ISO 3200); Chipmunk - bokeh at f/8, 200mm.

Great for an all purpose/every day lens

I bought this lens in conjunction with a Z6II as a supplemental body to my Z9 and to have as a smaller walk around set up. Perfect for both, often there are times when I have the Z9 connected to my 600 and tripod and need need quick access to a different lens for which there is not time to swap with the Z9 and this setup helps with that.

Very sharp lens throughout the zoom range

By Anthony

I've been using this lens on my Z5 over a month and I'm very impressed with its sharpness at every focal length. It even seems a bit sharper than the 24-70mm f/4 S lens I originally bought with the camera. I've used the 24-200 for just about everything outdoors, such as fall foliage, street photography, and the fauna in my neighborhood park. I'd call it a versatile walkabout lens, but I think its quality is a level above what that term usually implies. Highly recommended.

Vignetting

I am getting slight vignetting when zoomed out to 24mm. Is this normal? The only thing I have in front of the lens is a UV filter (no hood). The vignetting occurs with or without the filter in place.

Best All Purpose Lens for Z50 Camera

By Mark
Rated 5 out of 5

I bought the Nikon Z50 with the 2 kit lenses (16-50, 50-250) and I found out that they were limited. The small one was too small and it was like looking through a periscope. The Large lens was the one that I was using almost all the time because of better optics but it was not practical for closer shots. Also, I did not like the fact that you had to turn the lenses each time to unlock them because there was a small time delay before the lens became active. The optics for the small lens was not as good as the large lens. I know that the kit lenses were designed to be light and OK for all shots. But in the end I needed a more professional type of lens with good close-up and good long range shots. One thing that concerned me was the fact the large kit lens would emit a rattling noise when shook at little. I was told that was designed by the factory to satisfy the VR requirement. The new 24-200 Lens has no such rattle and I can set the camera for VR anyway. The new lens operates fast and has a solid feel to it. The optics seem be a little better than the large kit lens too. It is easy to grab, hold, zoom and shoot. I wish that there was a special kit package that combined the Z50 with the 24-200 lens at the time I bought the camera. The Z50 is eventually going to be the backup camera. I hope to buy the Z7 II as a the primary camera so the lens would be good fit for the Z7 II. Other lenses will have to follow for special shots.

Why is the aperture range so limited/bad, compared to say af-s 28-300 f3.5-5.6? They say z mount offers more light to come in, so why this lens is so poor;y designed?
Asked by: Sudhir
The diameter of the mount is only indirectly related to the amount of light that gets to the sensor. A wide mount provides engineers with more flexibility and fewer limitations in their optical designs which, in turn, permits the creation of very wide aperture lenses. It does not dictate that all Z-mount lenses have wide apertures. The 24-400 was designed for use cases where small size is more important than wide apertures.

Compared to the 28-300mm lens this one is much sharper, faster focus and slightly smaller and lighter. It will also be a direct mount onto the Z 6II, so you would not need an adapter.
