All-in-One Versatility
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

55mm Longer at 120mm Focal Length

By Luke
Rated 4 out of 5
Date: 2022-11-29

The B and H comparison chart was misleading. Under Length at Maximum Extension it reads Not Applicable. At the 120mm focal length the lens length is about 175mm compared to about 120mm at the 24mm focal length. Still getting to know the lens but have been exploiting the flexibility.

Replacement

Great lens just as all the Nikon Z lens are. Replaced my 24-70 f/4S with this Z24-120 f/4S. Both have the same sharpness but the 24-120 has a longer reach but more importantly the 24-120 has a lens function button which I programed for 3D tracking if and when needed. Just a more versatile knock around lens. Also have to add B&H has fantastic customer service. I just purchased the Z9 and didn't realize I could bundle this 24-120 lens. I called after the fact and they accommodated my request and passed on the savings. Main reason I purchase all my equipment from B&H.

A Step Up...

By Tom

I purchased the Nikkor Z 24-120mm f/4 lens as a replacement for my Nikkor Z 24-70mm f/4 lens. The 24-70, although a great lens in its own right, never had quite the medium telephoto reach I was looking for. It also had an annoying unlocking mechanism from its stationary position. The 24-120 has that little extra midrange telephoto reach that one needs for portraits, etc. The 24-120 is slightly longer than the 24-70, but the optical performance appears to be similar.

Good all purpose lens

This is a good "walking around" lens. Useful, focal lengths. Surprisingly sharp. Very different from the previous SLR version.

I used this lens with Nikon Z7 on vacation for one week. I love this lens .I think barrel was moving little bit tight.

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.

Is this Z lens offer any significant advantages over 24-120 FX f/4 with FTZ adaptor ? Specially for Nikon Z7 II
Asked by: peeyush
This NIKKOR Z 24-120mm f/4 S Lens would offer better lens coatings, a stepping motor for quiet autofocus when shooting video and a direct Z mount which will free you up from using an adapter.
