It’s never just a walkaround
If you want the versatility to handle just about any shooting opportunity, this constant f/4 24–70mm zoom lens delivers. From low-light scenes to high-speed action, you get more detail, more depth, more colour in every photo and movie you shoot.
Capture the scene
A minimum focus distance of just 0.3 m throughout the zoom range puts you in control of the frame—from close-up to infinity.
The constant f/4 aperture ensures exceptional low-light performance, and consistent exposure across the entire zoom range. Attain maximum image quality without needing to set high ISOs.
The ultra-wide Nikon Z mount enables your NIKKOR Z lens to capture more light across the entire frame. Combined with the short distance between mount and sensor, light fall off at the edges of the frame is significantly reduced. The result is incredible edge-to-edge sharpness through the full zoom range.
True brilliance. All the way to the edge.
The exceptional resolving power of this zoom lens enables every component of a scene to be faithfully reproduced. Peripheral light falloff is controlled to retain brightness across the entire frame. You get edge-to-edge sharpness, vivid colour and deep contrast.
Nikon’s anti-reflective Nano Crystal Coat reduces ghosting and flare for greater image clarity, even in backlit conditions. Or when shooting scenes with numerous direct light sources in the frame.
Superior reproduction of point light sources, such as streetlights at night, is achieved by minimising sagittal coma flare. Point light sources appear as fine rounded points, even at the edges of the image.
Aspherical ED glass and Aspherical lens elements ensure vivid colour and deep contrast.
Sharp. Silent. Precise.
The NIKKOR Z multi-focusing system and multiple AF drives ensure subjects nap into focus—and stay in focus. Focusing is smooth and silent, making this lens ideal for movies as well as stills.
High-speed, large-capacity data transfer between the lens and your Nikon Z camera enables exceptional distortion compensation throughout the zoom range. Sharpness is exceptional, and lines stay straight.
This lens uses in-camera Vibration Reduction to let you shoot at shutter speeds up to five stops slower than otherwise possible.¹ Capture clearer photos as daylight fades or film scenes without the unwanted effects of camera shake.
Floating lens elements ensure precise focus at close distances. An electromagnetic diaphragm delivers precise exposures during high-speed bursts.
The knurled control ring allows beautifully exact, intuitive operation. When shooting in AF mode, you can assign ISO or exposure-compensation settings to the control ring. When shooting in Manual Focus, the control ring can be used as a focus ring. Focus shifts according to how quickly or slowly you turn the ring, allowing sharp control over your point of focus.
Dynamic perspectives. Mesmerising movies.
Capture exceptional full-frame video footage with an optical design that makes the most of your Nikon Z camera’s wide dynamic range. Zoom into the moments that make the story.
Quiet on set
Whisper-quiet AF is achieved via a virtually silent stepping motor. Zoom is quiet, and the silent control ring lets you adjust aperture with no clicking sounds.
This lens’ multi-focusing system enables incredibly smooth, accurate focus pulling. Focus breathing is reduced, as is focus-shift while zooming.
Paired with your Nikon Z camera, this compact, lightweight, zoom lens gives you the freedom to follow your ideas anywhere. Every movable part of the lens barrel is sealed to protect from dust and water droplets. A fluorine coating actively repels water, dust, and dirt without compromising image quality.
