Nikon NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S Lens for Z Series Mirrorless Cameras

The most capable addition to Nikon's Z series stable, the powerful Nikon NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S Lens for Z Series Mirrorless Cameras provides uncompromising optical performance and versatility. This indispensable mid-range zoom lens is ideal for both photo and video applications and can be used for everything from landscapes and street photography to full-length and environmental portraits.

The NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S provides incredible clarity, resolution and natural bokeh. Adding to its outstanding quality is its new Multi-Focus System, cutting edge lens flare correction and the other advancements indicative of lenses in Nikon's S Line.

Next Level Color and Sharpness

Imagine having practically no flare, ghosting, coma or chromatic, spherical or axial aberration. This lens corrects aberration even at the edges of the frame. It also features protection from dirt, dust and moisture.

Stunning Depth and Brightness

The f/2.8 constant maximum aperture of the NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S ensures consistent exposure across the zoom range. Providing sharpness, speed and brightness, this lens is handy for shooting portraits and achieving precise background blur. The depth perfection of this lens is beneficial when capturing video too—you will find yourself using bokeh as a storytelling tool.

Multi-Focus System Provides Speed and Precision

Even at close range, you will achieve fast and accurate focusing across the entire zoom range thanks to the all-new multi-focusing system of the NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S. Consisting of two precisely synchronized AF drive units, the system prevents the color fringing and other aberrations common among lenses that provide high detail and resolution.

Anti-Reflective Optical Coatings

The anti-reflective performance of the NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S is unsurpassed among Nikon lenses. Often, backlit subjects lead to incidental light streaking across the frame, which then leads to undesirable ghosting, reflections and flaring. This lens neutralizes such problems by employing two of Nikon's premium lens coatings. Nano Crystal Coat eliminates incidental light from a diagonal direction, while the new ARNEO Coat eliminates incidental light from a vertical direction. These anti-reflective properties ensure crisp, clean photos.

Smooth AF Performance

Nikon’s Stepping Motor (STM) is built for smooth, fast and silent autofocusing for stills or video. STM is a lifesaver, especially when shooting in public or where camera noise is distracting or prohibited—street photography, weddings and other ceremonies, press conferences and video productions.

Versatile Coverage

The NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S is a video virtuoso, reliable whether on set or on location. Filmmakers of all stripes will appreciate the versatility of this lens. They will save time by not having to switch lenses for establishing shots, medium shots and close-ups. All are possible with this lens thanks to the S Line's signature control ring and its beautiful, smooth f/2.8 aperture, focus and exposure control. This lens makes it easy to adjust focus with minimal necessary shifting of the angle of view (or focus breathing).

Lens Information Panel

The integrated Organic EL lens information panel of this lens provides quick and convenient confirmation of your aperture, focus distance and depth-of-field, even in low light. This panel also includes an expandable depth-of-field scale that determines the minimum and maximum distances at any given f/stop. This maximizes hyperfocal distance for both stills and video.
