The Nikon Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S has a versatile focal range that provides great flexibility combined with a bright f/2.8 aperture that ensures that you will be prepared to capture perfect moments. The large diameter mount of the Z series mirrorless cameras allows this workhorse lens to be lighter than its counterparts. With ARNEO, fluorine and Nikon’s nanocrystal coating, the lens delivers an impressive optical performance for both stills and video.
Ultra-Versatile 24-70mm Zoom
Able to transition between 24mm for wide angle landscapes orarchitecture frames and then re-composein the blink of an eye to a 70mm mid-telephoto range for portraits and close-up detail, the 24-70mm is an iconic focal length.Covering the most usedfocal lengths reduces the need to swap lenses so you can focus on shooting.
Bright Constant f/2.8 Aperture
Perfectly matched with the zoom range, the lens has afast f/2.8 aperture that is consistent throughout the entire lens, allowing you to set-and-forget your aperture in low-light situations without worrying about losing light while zooming. Having a bright f/2.8 ability also provides better shooting capabilities in low-light conditions and the 9-bladed diaphragm creates stunning circular bokeh in the out of focus areas.
Multi-Focusing Autofocus System
With an innovative autofocus mechanism, the S-line 24-70 Nikon lens uses a stepping motor and multiple autofocus actuators to drive elements inside the lens barrel to deliver the lighting fast and accurate autofocus performance that modern professionals demand.
Designed to provide better functionality to shooters, the lens has a control ring that can adjust aperture and exposure compensation, making it perfect for videographers and movie makers who need more control. There is a display at the top of the lens that can show aperture, focus distance or depth of field as well as a customisable function button on the side of the barrel.
In addition to the customisable click-less control lens the 24-70 f2.8 mirrorless lens has additional features designed specifically for video and film makers. The operational sound of the autofocus and aperture diaphragm have been intensively suppressed to keep the system as quiet as possible on set. Focus breathing has also been effectively controlled for smoother results when adjusting focus.
Sophisticated Highly Detailed Optics
Boasting a cutting-edge optical construction, the 24-70mm f/2.8 S-line lens has an ultra-high resolving power that is perfect for high-resolution sensors, as found in the Z7 mirrorless camera. The carefully designed optics inside the lens make use of 17 individual elements arranged in 15 groups to deliver images with ultra-sharp details.
High-End Lens Coatings
To minimise reflections, the lens features Nikon’s highly regard Nano Crystal Coating as well as a brand new ARNEO coating that promises better flare control from perpendicular light sources. In addition to the coatings that improve optical performance a fluorine treatment on the front and rear elements provides protection against dirty and grease.
Being robust and reliable is just as important as image quality and autofocus performance for professional shooters and the Nikon Z 24-70 F2.8 S doesn’t disappoint. It features a dust and drip resistant performance and various sections of the lens are sealed to secure the internal elements against incursion by the elements.
