Designed for Professional Photographers

The updated Nikon AF-S 24-70mm f/2.8E ED VR lens represents an evolutionary upgrade to its iconic f/2.8G predecessor. Set to be a staple among professional photographers worldwide, the latest iteration will push the creative envelope for a broad range of seasoned shooters.

Versatile 24-70mm Focal Range

Its versatile 24-70mm focal range is suited to a variety of photographic scenarios and industries. From wedding photographers to photo journalists its 2.9x zoom delivers the flexibility to produce images ranging from wide-angle landscapes to up-close emotive portraits without compromising sharpness, colour or contrast across the entire zoom range.

Large f/2.8 Constant Aperture

A bright constant aperture of F2.8 ensures the lens is capable of being used in lower light situations while maintaining lower ISOs, or using faster shutter speeds to freeze the action. The large aperture also ensures excellent background separation, with great depth-of-field control.

Electromagnetic Aperture Diaphragm

Made from 9 rounded blades, a redesigned electromagnetic aperture diaphragm delivers stable auto exposure control during high-speed continuous shooting.

Aspherical ED Glass Element

The inclusion of an Aspherical ED glass element in its internal construction sets a new benchmark for image quality. Working in conjunction with High Refractive Index (HRI) lens elements, the Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8E ED VR lens ensures minimal colour fringing with a noticeable reduction in lateral chromatic, spherical and peripheral distortion.

Nano Crystal Coating

A Nano Crystal Coating further improves image quality by helping reduce ghosting and flare for superior contrast and clarity. The overall result equals detail-rich photos and video with true-to-life colour reproduction and superior sharpness.

Built-in Vibration Reduction (VR) System

Its built-in Vibration Reduction (VR) system is a major benefit for photographers who are constantly on the move. Delivering an equivalent 4-stop advantage it presents an additional layer of creative versatility for photographers who are pushing the boundaries of their craft.

Normal and Active VR Modes

The system offers two modes to optimise its effectiveness. The Active Mode is ideal for panning or tracking moving objects, while the Normal Mode is most effective when pushing the limits of your usable shutter speed to maximise available light while shooting hand held.

Silent Wave Motor AF System

Autofocus performance is improved by as much as 150% over the previous 24-70mm f/2.8G lens thanks to a complete redesign of the Silent Wave Motor (SWM) autofocus system. With its ability to perform in a broad range of lighting conditions the updated AF system delivers lightning fast, accurate, consistent focusing results for pixel perfect sharpness.

The Reliable Daily Workhorse

Built to satisfy the considerable demands from seasoned professionals, the Nikon Nikkor 24-70 mm f/2.8E ED VR AF-S lens offers superior durability to complement the reliable performance of Nikons professional DX and FX-Format DLSRs.
