Lens Description: Covering a useful range of focal lengths, the NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/4 S is a versatile zoom, spanning wide-angle to portrait-length perspectives. Its constant f/4 maximum aperture maintains a consistent exposure throughout the zoom range and also helps to realize a more compact and lightweight alternative to an f/2.8 zoom. In regard to the optical design, a unique aspherical extra-low dispersion element, in addition to three aspherical elements, is used to help reduce chromatic aberrations and distortions throughout the zoom range in order to achieve high image sharpness and clarity. Both Nano Crystal and Super Integrated Coatings have also been applied to control flare and ghosting for greater contrast and color rendering in bright and backlit conditions.

Photography Life Review Summary: Nikon has created a true winner with the 24-70mm f/4 S. Its performance, especially sharpness, is so unexpectedly good that I can’t wait to see how future Z lenses will perform by comparison. Read the full Nikon NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/4 S Review by Photography Life.
