Two new Nikkor Z lenses join the Nikon Z range

Both lenses focus quickly, quietly and smoothly, and are well sealed to protect from dust and moisture

Today Nikon announced the introduction of two new Nikkor Z lenses: the ultra wide angle Nikkor Z 20mm f/1.8 S, and the Nikkor Z 24-200mm f/4.6 telephoto zoom.

The Nikkor Z 20mm extends the Nikon Z line-up of high-performance S-line f/1.8 lenses. This bright, ultra-wide 20mm prime lens is a good choice for those focused on wide-angle photography. With advanced optics, the wide Z mount, and the f/1.8 rounded 9-blade aperture enable improved performance in most lights. Sharpness is also provided well at close distances thanks to a minimum focus distance of 0.20 m. ED glass and Nikon's anti-reflective Nano Crystal Coat also combat ghosting and flare.

The Nikkor Z 24-200mm joins the Nikon Z family of lenses, suitable for use as a travel lens to capture detailed stills and videos. It makes the cut of being one of the most compact telephoto zooms available today, able to fit into smaller kit bags than most.

The large Z mount enables advanced balance and handling, whilst the optical design ensures sharp and vivid images. It allows deep contrast, whether shooting wide or telephoto. Video shooters can also capture advanced full frame footage.

Nikkor Z 20mm f/1.8 S summary:

Fast f/1.8 ultra-wide mirrorless lens: Sharp from edge to edge and great in low light.
Sharpness: High-quality sharpness, particularly at close distances. With a minimum focus distance of 0.20 m, photographers are enabled to have good control of the frame.
Bokeh: Advanced optical design enables starbursts and natural looking bokeh.
Clear images: ED glass and lens elements correct chromatic aberrations, and Nikon's anti-reflective Nano Crystal Coat combats ghosting and flare.
Filming: Focusing is fast, smooth and quiet.


Nikkor Z 24-200mm f/4-6.3 summary:

Compact telephoto zoom: Full-frame mirrorless lens with 24-200mm wide-angle to telephoto zoom range.
Travel ready: Weighs 570g and fits into smaller kit bags. The zoom-lock switch keeps the lens fully retracted when it's stowed in a bag.
Sharpness: Minimum focus distance of 0.5m at 24mm, and 07 at 200mm.
Filming: Autofocus is quiet, focus breathing is reduced as is focus-shift while zooming.
Dust and drip resistant: The lens is sealed to protect from dust and moisture. A fluorine coat repels dust and dirt, without compromising image quality.
