A Review of the Nikon NIKKOR Z 14-24mm f/2.8 S Lens

The original Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8 was a bit of a legend in the DSLR world, and now, Nikon shooters have the NIKKOR Z 14-24mm f/2.8 S, the mirrorless version of the beloved optic. It brings with it a variety of new features and improvements, and this fantastic video review takes a look at what you can expect from the lens in practice.

Coming to you from Christopher Frost, this great video review takes a look at the Nikon NIKKOR Z 14-24mm f/2.8 S lens. The 14-24mm f/2.8 comes with a variety of useful features, including: 

  • Three aspherical elements for reduced spherical aberrations and distortion and increased sharpness
  • Four extra-low dispersion elements for reduced chromatic aberrations and increased clarity
  • ARNEO and Nano Crystal Coats for reduced ghosting and flares and increased contrast
  • Super Integrated Coating for more accurate colors
  • Stepping motor with quiet operation suitable for both photo and video work
  • Full-time manual focus override
  • Customizable Control Ring and L.Fn button
  • OLED display that shows aperture, focus distance, and depth of field
  • Rounded nine-blade diaphragm for smoother bokeh
  • Dust- and moisture-resistant design

Altogether, the 14-24mm f/2.8 looks like quite the lens. Check out the video above for the full rundown

This looks like a premium lens that will fit nicely in the Trinity of lenses for Nikon Z mount. While I have the 2.8's for the 24-70, and 70-200 I went with the 14-30mm f4. The f4 shares filters wiith the 24-70 and is smaller, cheaper with a slightly longer range but it is 1 stop slower. Honestly though outside of price all reviews show the 14-24mm 2.8 to be best in class. Thanks for the review.

Its very impressive, yet sadly its 2020 and all people can do is complain about the price of things, ive seen all the comments on this video and im fairly certain all those complaining about the cost would never be buying this lens regardless.

Hello there. I live in Turkey. I have 3 pieces D850 and 1 piece Z7 and 1 piece Z6 bodies. I really wanted to buy this lens. But it will take a long time to arrive in my country and it will be very expensive.

For this, I sold my 2 d850 bodies, 16-35mm f4vr and 200-500mm f5,6vr lenses and bought canon R5 and 15-35mm f2,8L IS lens. And I have no regrets. Both are amazing. It doesn't concern me the part about making videos. I have used 5d mark4 and R bodies before. But the R5 is awesome.
