A Review of the Nikon NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/4 S Lens

Whereas Canon began their mirrorless lineup with a bunch of extreme lenses, Nikon mostly went for more practical designs for their Z mount. This excellent video review takes a look at one such lens, the Nikon NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/4 S lens.

Coming to you from Christopher Frost Photography, this great video review takes a look at the Nikon NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/4 S lens. Though its maximum aperture is just f/4, one huge benefit of that slower design is a much smaller footprint, with the NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/4 weighing in at just over a pound, as compared to a typical 24-70mm f/2.8 lens' weight of around 2 lbs. Along with that smaller size, this lens comes with an aspherical extra-low dispersion element and three aspherical elements for reduced chromatic aberrations and distortion and improved sharpness, Nano Crystal and Super Integrated Coatings for reduced flares and improved contrast, a programmable control ring, a rounded seven-blade diaphragm, dust and moisture-resistant design, and fluorine coating to protect against fingerprints and dirt. Altogether, the lens looks to be a highly compact optic with a useful range of focal lengths, making it potentially quite useful for a range of shooters. Check out the video above for Frost's full thoughts.
