Overview

Nikkor Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S

The NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S, a much-anticipated fast-aperture zoom lens that’s ideal for professional and advanced photographers who capture portraits, landscapes, weddings and events, as well as content creators who shoot video using Nikon’s revolutionary new Z Mount System. Designed to take full advantage of the wider, brighter and faster Z Mount, this new S-Line lens delivers stunning sharpness all the way to the corners of the frame, even when used at its maximum aperture.

Key Features:

  • Stepping Motor
  • ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) Glass
  • Aspherical Lens
  • ARNEO Coat
  • Nano Crystal Coat
  • Electromagnetic Diaphragm Mechanism
  • IF Lens
  • Flourine Coat
  • Super Integrated Coating



The 24-70mm f/2.8 S is the first NIKKOR lens to use the all new Nikon-designed ARNEO coat, which is used in conjunction with Nikon’s Nano Crystal Coat to significantly minimize flare and ghosting.

The lens also includes Nikon’s new Multi-Focus System to help ensure fast and accurate autofocus even when shooting close-up subjects.

Additionally, the 24-70mm f/2.8 S is the first NIKKOR Z lens to feature a dedicated manual focus ring independent of the customizable control ring, a Function (L-Fn) button, and an Organic EL Lens Information Panel for quick reference of key settings such as focus distance, depthof-field, aperture and focal length.

 

Uncompromising Optical Performance

Meet the most versatile lens in the Z series stable. A powerful mid-range zoom that's indispensable for a wide range of photo and video applications, from landscapes and street photography to full-length and environmental portraits, all with stunning clarity, high resolution and natural bokeh. Elevated by a new Multi-Focus System, next generation lens flare correction and advanced S-Line features and functionality, the NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S is a must-have lens that marks the sweet spot of performance, precision and optical superiority.

Superior Colour and Sharpness

Impressive aberration correction—virtually zero flare, ghosting, coma or chromatic, spherical and axial aberration, even at the far edges of the frame. Plus dirt, dust and water-repelling safeguards.

Bright. Fast. Stunning

With an f/2.8 constant maximum aperture, exposure is consistent across the entire zoom range. Wide open, subjects pop from beautifully blurred backgrounds. The speed and brightness of the NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S enables sharper images handheld at fast shutter speeds—a necessity for capturing portraits. The benefits also extend to video, where bokeh can be used as a storytelling aid to draw out subjects in a way that other lenses simply can't.

Multi-Focus System

Finely detailed, high resolution photography can sometimes be susceptible to lens aberrations, such as colour fringing, especially at close ranges. The NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S incorporates an all-new multi-focusing system, consisting of two AF drive units precisely synchronized to deliver fast, accurate autofocusing and drastically reduce aberrations across the entire zoom range.

Optimal Anti-Reflective Performance

When subjects are backlit, incidental light can streak across the frame causing unwanted ghosting, reflections and flaring. To counteract these anomalies and ensure crisp, clean images, the NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S employs two of Nikon’s most advanced lens coatings: Nano Crystal Coat for eliminating incidental light from a diagonal direction and new ARNEO Coat for eliminating incidental light from a vertical direction.

Smooth, Fast and Quiet Autofocus

Nikon’s Stepping Motor (STM) provides smooth, fast and quiet autofocusing whether shooting stills or video. Where camera noise is distracting or prohibited—street photography, weddings, ceremonies, press conferences and video productions—STM is a silent partner.

A Video Virtuoso

The NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S epitomizes Z series’ steadfast reliability on set or on location with its versatile coverage and enhanced usability geared towards filmmakers of every kind. Cover the basics without switching lenses—from wide establishing shots that set the scene, to medium shots that highlight the subject, to tight close-ups that reveal the details—all at a beautiful f/2.8 aperture. Adjust focus with minimal shifting of the angle of view (known as focus breathing); experience smooth aperture, focus or exposure control via the S Line’s signature control ring and near-silent autofocus.

The front line of an imaging revolution

Designed and optimized to take full advantage of the Z system's larger mount, Z lenses gather substantially more light, providing even illumination and improved sharpness from the center of the frame to the far edges. Autofocusing is fast and quiet. Video recording is clean and smooth with highly minimized focus breathing and reduced wobbling. Intuitive on-lens controls can be customized to your individual shooting style and so much more. Z lenses are designed with a sense of consistency that combines reliability and beauty with next-dimension optical performance for complete freedom in image creation.


Dust and Drip Resistant

Extensively sealed to keep dust and moisture out, especially around all moving parts of the lens barrel, for worry-free durability.


Customizable Control Ring

In addition to a dedicated manual focus ring, the control ring can be used for quiet aperture control (great for iris transitions during video recording or situations where complete silence is critical) or exposure compensation.


Dual Detect 5 Axis VR

Uses the 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 available) during video capture.

Build and Reliability

Lens Information Panel

A built-in Organic EL lens information panel allows quick, convenient confirmation of aperture, focus distance and depth-of-field, even in dark situations. Additionally, the panel features an expandable depth-of-field scale for determining the minimum and maximum distances at any given f/stop—excellent for maximizing hyperfocal distance for stills or video.
