Nikkor 24-70mm S f/2.8 Lens

With videographers in mind, Nikon quickly re-created their DSLR equivalent for its Z-mount system. Nikon took a big leap when they first introduced their mirrorless camera series with their Z-series. This was a big push to keep a competitive advantage over other companies like Sony and Canon, and their new 24-70mm S lens proves to be a quintessential addition.

Read the statement from Nikon below:

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 Color and Sharpness

Multi-Focus System

Finely detailed, high resolution photography can sometimes be susceptible to lens aberrations, such as color 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.

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 lens capable of covering the shot list

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.
