Lens Description: Ultra-wide with a flexible-yet-exacting design, the NIKKOR Z 14-24mm f/2.8 S from Nikon is a wide-angle zoom distinguished by its advanced optical design and bright f/2.8 constant maximum aperture. This fast design suits working in low-light conditions when shooting handheld and also offers improved depth of field control. The optical system utilizes four extra-low dispersion elements and three aspherical elements, which reduce a variety of aberrations and distortion in order to achieve high sharpness and clarity along with accurate rendering of subjects and point light sources, such as stars. ARNEO and Nano Crystal Coats, as well as a Super Integrated Coating, have also been applied to suppress flare, ghosting, and surface reflections for improved contrast and color fidelity.Complementing the optical design, a stepping motor helps to realize impressively fast, accurate, and quiet autofocus performance, along with full-time manual focus override, to suit both stills and video needs. The lens also has a unique physical design, which incorporates a top OLED information panel that can be used to quickly confirm aperture and focus settings, and an assignable L.Fn button permits making exposure and settings adjustments via the lens. Two lens hoods are included with the Z 14-24mm f/2.8 depending on working needs: the HB-96 maintains a sleeker overall size while the HB-97 hood gives the unique advantage of permitting 112mm threaded filters to be attached. Additionally, a programmable control ring can be set for intuitive adjustment over a variety of camera and exposure settings.

Photography Life Review Summary: The Nikon Z 14-24mm f/2.8 S is one of the best lenses in Nikon’s entire lineup. There’s practically nothing to complain about, and the few complaints I have are easily explained. It’s expensive – but no more than similar lenses on the market, and the performance more than justifies it. It doesn’t natively take screw-in filters – but the HB-97 lens hood does, which means there are plenty of compact, affordable filters and holders compatible with this lens. It “only” covers 14mm to 24mm, while some other f/2.8 ultra-wides have a bigger range – but it’s substantially lighter than all those other lenses.
