Nikon Unveils Nikkor Z 24
The Z 24-200mm is one of the more budget-friendly options in the now thirteen lens Z family, packing 8.3x zoom in a $900 lens. The f/4-6.3 aperture is part of that price point, offering a bit less light for a bit less cash. The aperture is the narrowest full-frame lens so far in the Z family that also includes optics like the f/.95 Noct.
The lens is built with two aspherical elements, two ED elements, and one aspherical ED element, along with Nikon’s relatively new ARNEO coating for fighting flare. Nikon says that design helps fight distortion, color bleeding, and flare. Those components are wrapped up in a lens body totaling around 20 ounces. The lens is also sealed against dust and splashes.
Built with three ED elements and Nano Crystal coating, the lens uses nine aperture blades for rounded bokeh and Nano Crystal Coating to fight flare. For video, Nikon says the lens offers silent autofocus and smooth controls while eliminating focus breathing.
The S in the name means that the lens is built for pro-quality images on the inside while using weather-sealing on the exterior. The control ring is also customizable.
The Nikon Nikkor Z 24mm f/1.8 S lens will be available next month, listing at about $1,050. The Nikon Nikkor Z 24-200mm f/4-5.6 won’t be available until April but will list for around $900.标签：
