A truly versatile everyday lens, the NIKKOR Z 24-120mm f/4 S, from Nikon, is a wide-angle to short-telephoto zoom covering an extremely useful range of focal lengths to benefit a variety of applications from landscape to portraiture. The constant f/4 maximum aperture offers consistent performance throughout the zoom range and the lens features an advanced optical design for high sharpness and clarity. As a go-to lens for a majority of needs, this lens also sports a relatively compact and lightweight design.

Optical Design

  • Featuring a combination of three ED elements, one aspherical ED element, and three aspherical elements, both chromatic and spherical aberrations are effectively eliminated throughout the zoom range for notable sharpness and clarity.
  • 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.

Autofocus

  • 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.
  • Dedicated manual focus ring at the rear of the lens for tactile and precise control over the focus position.
  • Minimum focusing distance of 1.1', along with a maximum magnification of 0.39x, benefits working with close-up subjects.

Handling and Design

  • Programmable Control Ring can be used to control aperture, ISO, or exposure compensation.
  • Assignable L.Fn button works in conjunction with camera-based Fn buttons to provide seamless points for quickly changing exposure settings and other functions.
  • Dust- and moisture-resistant lens barrel, along with a front fluorine coating, benefits the lens' use in inclement conditions.

Nikon NIKKOR Z 24-120mm f/4 S Reviews

Must have lens

Quite versatile lens. One of the lens you should have in your bag however I find this lens not as fast when trying to focus your subject. Good quality n well built.

24-120 vs 24-200

By Victor
Rated 3 out of 5

I bought this lens to replace my 24-200 f/4-6.3 VR. During 2 weeks I was testing both lenses on Aruba. 3-4 hundred shots were taken with each, including tripod supported. The verdict: - new 24-120 lens is amazing tool. If you are looking for good all-around lens, buy it; - to those who already purchased 24-200, I'd recommend to keep it. Starting from F8, both lenses produce almost identical pics. But, in my view, when you travel, the extra 80mm is more important than F4. I finished to keep both.

The best Landscape Lens

I love this lens for landscapes and some of the pet portraits that I do. It seems to be sharp from edge to edge at any F stop.

If you don't need an f/2.8 lens then this is a great option that has the bonus of giving you more range than the standard 24-70. It looks and feels well built and is very sharp.

I'm no expert, but after a couple of weeks I'm having a great time with this lens. Above all, it is very versatile and will likely be my go-to lens. Build quality is excellent, and the results are fine.

Does this add IS, like the Canon and Sony equivalent do?
Asked by: Clayton
This lens does not have built-in Vibration Reduction (VR) since all Nikon Z full frame cameras have built-in 5 axis In Body Image Stabilization (IBIS). Therefore the lens does not require it. However, if used on other non-IBIS cameras, such as the Dx APS-C models (Z50 and Zfc), there would be no VR.

Does the zoom feature on this Nikon Z 24-120mm extend the lens barrel out from the camera body or does the lens length remain constant? Anyone know the Nikon nomenclature for this type of spec?
Asked by: Chris
This lens will extend when zoomed. See video to view the extension: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CAb13sFeIYE Note that the lens DOES have Internal Focusing (IF), that means it will NOT change size during M or AF focusing, just with zooming.
