Uncompromising optical performance

Bright and versatile, the NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S from Nikon is a workhorse standard zoom, covering wide-angle to portrait-length fields of view. Characterised by its bright f/2.8 constant maximum apertureAPERTUREAperture, shutter speed and ISO form what is known as the exposure triangle in photography. Aperture refers to an opening inside the lens, similar to the iris of your eye, that changes in diameter to control the amount of light that enters a camera. Aperture is expressed in f-stops: the lower the number, the larger the aperture, e.g. f/1.4 is larger than f/8. A larger (or wider) aperture allows more light to pass through the lens to the sensor (film) as a picture is taken, particularly useful in low-light conditions. A larger aperture also produces a shallower depth-of-field, and thus more background blur., this lens is suitable for working in a variety of lighting conditions and also offers increased control over depth of field for isolating subjects and working with selective focus. Complementing the optical design, this lens is also distinct in its physical build. A top information panel can be used to quickly confirm aperture and focus settings and an assignable L.Fn button permit making exposureEXPOSUREExposure is controlled by three elements: Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO. Achieving the correct exposure is similar to collecting rain in a bucket, up to an optimum level. The rate of rainfall is out of your control (light), yet you can control these three factors: the bucket’s width (lens aperture), the duration you leave it in the rain (shutter speed), and how effective your bucket is in collecting rain (ISO). These three elements work together to control the amount of light per unit area, preventing underexposure (too dark) or overexposure (too bright), giving you a natural looking image. and settings adjustments via the lens. Additionally, a programmable control ring can be set for intuitive adjustment over a variety of camera and exposure settings.

Superior Colour and Sharpness

Impressive aberration correction — virtually zero flareFLAREOccurs when a point light source such as the sun or an artificial light (that is brighter than the rest of the scene), hits the front element of a lens resulting in a lack of contrast, haze, or unwanted semi-transparent objects being present in the image. You can avoid lens flare with a lenshood or filters, however, the effect is also useful for bringing artistic elements into an image, such as sun rays peaking out from behind a rock formation. , 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 - The dazzling depth of an f/2.8

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 enable sharper images handheld at fast shutter speedSHUTTER SPEEDAperture, shutter speed and ISO form what is known as the exposure triangle in photography. Shutter speed is the length of time that a single frame is exposed for, more specifically how fast the shutter opens and closes to permit light entering the lens, to reach the sensor. A slow shutter speed means a longer exposure time useful for motion blur like the silky look of flowing water, whereas a fast shutter speed means a shorter exposure time useful for freezing the appearance of motion in images like a hummingbird in flight. It is measured in seconds starting at 1 second and halving our doubling in time. For example: 1/2s, 1/4s and 1/8s are all fractions of a second with 1/2s being the longest exposure time, 1/4s half of that and 1/8s another half etc.s — a necessity for capturing portraits. The benefits also extend to video, where bokehBOKEHPronounced: /ˈboʊkɛ/, /ˈboʊkeɪ/ [boh-kay] or /ˈboʊkə/ [boh-kə] Originating from the Japanese word Boke (ボケ), meaning 'blur' or 'haze', it refers to the aesthetic quality of the blur produced in the out-of-focus parts of an image produced by a lens. It has also been defined as the way the lens renders out-of-focus points of light. Bokeh depends on various aspects of lens design. Aperture design has the largest effect on Bokeh, and generally a lens with a more rounded aperture produces a more pleasing, natural Bokeh. can be used as a storytelling aid to draw out subjects in a way that other lenses simply can't.


Multi-Focus System - Fast, precise focusing, even at close range

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 synchronised 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 noiseNOISEThe appearance of random pixels scattered over a photo, similar to the grain effect seen in film photography, which degrades photo quality almost as if it is stained. It occurs when taking photos in low-light conditions, with very slow shutter speeds on high sensitivity (ISO) settings. It is caused by amplification done by the sensor when high ISO settings are used. You can counteract digital noise by lowering the sensitivity (ISO) setting of your camera - the lower the ISO setting, the lower the noise in the image. Typically cameras with larger sensors (like full-frame cameras) will inherently produce less noise due to larger pixels on the sensor. is distracting or prohibited — street photography, weddings, ceremonies, press conferences and video productions — STM is a silent partner.


A Video Virtuoso - 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, too 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.
