Overview

A standard zoom that's anything but standard.

A 24-70mm zoom lens covers a sweet spot of the focal length range. Capture wide-angle views one moment, close-ups the next and everything in between. This reimagining of the classic everyday zoom, optimized and evolved for new Z cameras, achieves breakthrough image quality and performance for both stills and videos.

Breakthrough Z system performance

Cutting-edge optical technology

Empowered by the Z system's larger mount, shorter flange distance and cutting-edge imaging advancements, the NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/4 S delivers uncanny sharpness, vibrance and even lighting across the entire frame.

Consistently brilliant

A constant f/4 max aperture maintains consistent exposure at any zoom setting. Record smooth zoom transitions with even lighting across the entire sequence.

Not rough around the edges

The larger Z Mount enables epic definition and resolution from the center of the frame to the edges. No need to stop this lens down.

True to life

A new optical formula achieves faithful color reproduction with minimal axial/lateral chromatic aberration and virtually zero sagittal coma flare, even at 24mm.

Small and mighty

At home away from home

With a highly versatile zoom range for both stills and video, yet a wonderfully compact, lightweight design, the NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/4 S is an ideal travel companion.

Think small

Close focus is less than 1 foot (11.8-inches) from your subject (at any focal length) for macro-style shots with a 0.3X reproduction ratio—much larger than most comparable lenses.

New Dual Detect 5 Axis VR

Uses Z cameras' superior in-camera image stabilization system for up to 5 stops of pitch, roll, yaw, X and Y shake correction. Additional electronic VR (e-VR) during video capture.

Durable & lightweight

Extensively sealed against dust and moisture, especially around all moving parts of the barrel. Includes nonstick Fluorine coating on the front element for easy cleaning.

The front line of an imaging revolution

Next-generation Z design and optics

Z lenses, perfectly matched to Z camera bodies, are designed with a sense of consistency that combines reliability and beauty with next-dimension optical performance for freedom in image creation.

Accuracy abounds

The larger Z Mount allows more data to be shared between lens and camera for faster, more accurate focusing and improved distortion control.

Silent stepping

Designed specifically for the new Z Mount size, an ultra-quiet new stepping motor (STM) powers fast, near-silent AF and aperture adjustments.

New Customizable Control Ring

Can be used for manual focusing (default), aperture control (great for iris transitions during video recording) or exposure compensation.

Design Features:

Stepping Motor

NIKKOR Z lenses use a stepping motor for fast, accurate, smooth, quiet autofocus with reduced wobbling. This quiet drive system makes the lenses ideal for use when shooting video.

Aspherical – Extra-low Dispersion Glass Elements

An ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass element that features the characteristics of an Aspheric glass element for a more compact size lens. Like Aspherical lenses, AS-ED lens elements minimize coma and other types of lens aberrations, even when used at the widest aperture by continuously changing the refractive index from the center of the lens. The AS-ED lens elements are optical glass developed by Nikon to obtain optimum correction of chromatic aberrations.

Aspherical Lens

A lens with a curved, non-spherical surface. Used to reduce aberrations and enable a more compact lens size. Aspherical lenses minimize coma and other types of lens aberrations, even when used at the widest aperture. They are particularly useful in correcting distortion in wide-angle lenses and help contribute to a lighter, more compact design by reducing the number of standard (spherical) elements necessary. Aspherical lens elements correct these distortions by continuously changing the refractive index from the center of the lens.

Nano Crystal Coat

An anti-reflective coating developed by Nikon that virtually eliminates internal lens element reflections across a wide range of wavelengths. Nano Crystal Coat solves ghost effects caused by red light and effectively reduces ghost and flare caused by light entering the lens diagonally.

Electromagnetic Diaphragm Mechanism

An electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism in the lens barrel provides highly accurate electronic diaphragm or aperture blade control when using auto exposure during continuous shooting. With conventional D/G type lenses, the diaphragm blades are operated by mechanical linkage levers.

IF Lens

A NIKKOR lens in which only the internal lens group shifts during focusing. Thus, IF NIKKORS do not change in size during AF operation, allowing for compact, lightweight lenses capable of closer focusing distances. These lenses will be designated with the abbreviation IF on the lens barrel.

Fluorine Coat

Photographers need gear that can withstand the elements. Nikon’s fluorine coat effectively repels dust, water droplets, grease or dirt, ensuring easy removal even when they adhere to the lens surface. Nikon’s fluorine coat endures a high frequency of lens surface wiping and its anti-reflective effect also contributes to the capture of clear images.

Super Integrated Coating

Nikon Super Integrated Coating is Nikon's term for its multilayer coating of the optical elements in NIKKOR lenses.
