Nikon presents a new luminous lens for its Z mount: NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f / 2.8 S

0 7

On February 14, 2019 it is looking more like the day of photographic presentations than that of lovers. Nikon just introduced the new NIKKOR 24-70mm f Z / 2.8 S for your recent Nikon Z . A zoom lens that will be the first of the three professional objectives that Nikon is preparing for its conquest of the world of mirrorless cameras.

It is clear that if you want to draw attention to the professionals on the benefits of a new system you have to offer goals to match. It does not make sense to have cameras like the Z7 without a 24-70 and a 70-200 f2.8 . So just introduced Nikon Nikkor 24-70mm Z f / 2.8 S . On paper it seems more compact and indicate that it has a good seal against the weather.

Main characteristics

It is a constant aperture zoom lens f2,8 with 17 elements in 15 groups. They have been concerned to offer a very clear performance from center to corner of the frame and have achieved a minimum focus distance of 0.38 m. And insist on compact structure and sealing against dust and moisture.

Customizable button

Particularly striking is the customizable control ring, which allows a manual focus by default, but which can also be programmed for silent control of the diaphragm, to avoid problems when recording videos, and for exposure compensation. It is something inspired by Canon objectives, if I remember correctly.

It also incorporates a customizable button with more than 21 different functions, such as bracketing, AF blocking, measurement … something very comfortable to have controlled at all times how we want to work with our team. In fact, Nikon Europe’s product manager points out:

The NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f / 2.8 S offers the ideal combination of professional performance and compact structure. Each component of a scene reproduces with realistic clarity, and the completely hermetic seal prepares to this objective for any location “.

And the most striking is an OLED screen that allows you to quickly confirm the diaphragm we have set, the focal length, the exact focal length and the depth of field. Something that will be really practical to work with the team on a tripod or for video recordings.

We hope soon to have a unit to test it long and hard in Xataka Foto and confirm all the virtues that are indicated. If it reaches the same quality as the 24-70 for SLR cameras, it will surely be a goal to be taken into account.
