Lens Description: Bright and versatile, the NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S from Nikon is a workhorse standard zoom, covering wide-angle to portrait-length fields of view. Characterized by its bright f/2.8 constant maximum aperture, this lens is suitable for working in a variety of lighting conditions and also offers increased control over depth of field for isolating subjects and working with selective focus. The optical design incorporates a pair of extra-low dispersion elements along with four aspherical elements, which help to control chromatic and spherical aberrations throughout the zoom range for improved clarity and sharpness. Additionally, ARNEO and Nano Crystal Coats, as well as a Super Integrated Coating, have been applied to suppress flare, ghosting, and surface reflections for improved contrast and color fidelity.

Photography Life Review Summary: Nikon packed a lot of features into the Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S. From complex optical formula comprising of four aspherical and two extra-low dispersion elements, to advanced coatings (ARNEO, Nano Crystal Coat, Super Integrated Coating, Fluorine Coating) to other extra features such as an OLED information panel, a programmable ring and a function button, Nikon used everything it has in its arsenal to future-proof this lens. The result is the most advanced and the most versatile Nikkor zoom we have seen to date. Read the full Nikon NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S Review by Photography Life.
