    DESCRIPTION

    The optical system of Nikon Nikkor Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S with the 84° angle of view is 34°. 20' consists of 17 optical elements placed in 9 groups. Among them, there are two low-dispersion (ED) lenses and four aspherical ones. In addition, Nikon has used Nano Crystal coatings and a new, previously unseen, Arneo Coating which is supposed to reduce light reflections and flares during taking photographs in hard lighting conditions. The front and back external lens is covered with a fluorite coating, thanks to which the lenses are to be less susceptible to dirt.  

    The lens is equipped with the 9-blade electromagnetic aperture with the nominal hole of f/2.8, which can be closed up to f/22.

    The focusing system of Nikon Multi-Focus works thanks to the use of a stepper motor (STM), supported by the Nikon Multi-Focus system which uses two actuators that move two focal length groups at the same time. This motor is characterized by practically silent work, which will certainly satisfy the filmmakers.  

    The external part of the lens is made of plastic and it is based on the magnesium frame. We can mount the filters with the diameter of 82mm on the front lens.

    The whole tube is, of course, sealed against water and dust and it is resistant to low temperatures. Besides that it also has 3 control rings: the focusing ring, the focal length ring and one configuration ring to which we can assign the functions such as aperture regulation or exposition. We also have 2 buttons at our disposal – the first Display button and the L-Fn function button to which we may assign one of 21 options, from blocking AF to exposition measurement and bracketing. On the upper part of the lens, there is an additional OLED screen, which enables quick check of aperture parameters, accurate focal length or distance and focus depth.

    Nikon Nikkor Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S is also a very compact construction as for a 24-70mm f/2.8 lens. Its dimensions are: diameter – ø89mm (ø3.5″), length – 126mm (4.96″), weight – 805g (1.77lb).
