Capture scenic vistas or the beautiful environmental context of a portrait with the NIKKOR Z 24mm f/1.8 S lens, an incredibly bright and sharp wide-angle prime optimized for the light-gathering capability of Nikon's breakthrough Z mount.
The wide field of view and gorgeous resolution throughout the entire frame with naturally soft bokeh of this lens is well-suited to a range of subjects, including landscape, architecture, environmental portraits and other reportage. It's also a staple for video applications, covering essential establishing shots and much more.
Featuring an advanced optical layout, this prime lens incorporates a series of aspherical and extra-low dispersion elements, which produce sharp, well-corrected imagery with a high degree of clarity. Also, both Nano Crystal and Super Integrated Coatings are used to suppress flare and ghosting for greater colour fidelity and higher contrast.
A multi-focus system employing two stepping motors complements the optical design and helps to realize impressively fast, accurate, and quiet focus performance along with full-time manual focus override, to suit both stills and video needs.
Additionally, a programmable control ring can be set for intuitive adjustment over a variety of camera and exposure settings.
Ready to tell incredible immersive stories with the scene-setting NIKKOR Z 24mm f/1.8 S lens?
At the top of the ever-expanding NIKKOR Z lens lineup, S-Line lenses push Nikon’s tradition of optical excellence and innovation to new heights. Superior performance and resolution. Sophisticated features and operability. Specialized technologies and reliability enhancements. All while taking full advantage of the monumental Nikon Z mount and adhering to the strictest image quality and build standards.
Designed to take full advantage of the Z system's larger mount, Z lenses gather substantially more light, providing even illumination and improved sharpness from the center of the frame to the far edges. Autofocusing is fast and quiet. Intuitive on-lens controls can be customized to your individual shooting style and so much more.
The NIKKOR Z 24mm f/1.8 S is designed for FX-format Z-mount mirrorless cameras and offers a bright f/1.8 maximum aperture suitable for difficult lighting conditions and also increased control over depth of field. Four aspherical elements are used to reduce spherical aberrations and distortion in order to realize sharp imagery with accurate rendering. While one extra-low dispersion element greatly reduces colour fringing and chromatic aberrations in order to produce greater clarity. A Nano Crystal Coat, along with a Super Integrated Coating, has been applied to lens elements to minimize surface and internal reflections for a marked reduction in lens flare and ghosting.
Capture expansive establishing shots without worrying about excessive distortion. An Extra-low Dispersion (ED) element corrects chromatic aberrations (optical colour defects). Nano Crystal Coat (N) virtually eliminates flare, ghosting and coma. And optical advancements of the Z mount and S-Line render point-light sources sharper than ever without the usual diamond-shaped distortion—perfect for environmental portraits, nightscapes and more.
One of the many advantages of the larger Z mount is its ability to retain even illumination, especially at the corners of the frame. This results in bright, even exposures with minimal vignetting. Coupled with excellent sharpness and minimal distortion, this makes for a very versatile lens.
High resolution photography can sometimes be susceptible to lens aberrations, such as colour fringing, especially at close ranges.
The NIKKOR Z 24mm f/1.8 S incorporates an all-new multi-focusing system, consisting of two AF drive units precisely synchronized to deliver fast, accurate autofocusing and drastically reduce aberrations across the entire zoom range.
Using stepping motors, this system offers impressively smooth and quiet autofocus well-suited to both stills and video applications. Full-time manual focus override is also possible and an internal focusing design is used to maintain the overall length of the lens during use and to promote faster focusing speeds.
As a video lens, the NIKKOR Z 24mm f/1.8 S shines as a go-to for incredibly steady handheld establishing shots, it's superb electromagnetic aperture mechanism delivers smooth exposure changes without the impression of 'stepping' when transitioning from interior to exterior during the same shot. Video recording is otherwise clean and smooth with highly minimized focus breathing and reduced wobbling.
|Stepping Motor||Nano Crystal Coat|
|NIKKOR Z lenses use a stepping motor for fast, accurate, smooth, quiet autofocus with reduced wobbling.||Anti-reflective coating that virtually eliminates internal lens element reflections across a wide range of wavelengths. This Nikon developed coating solves ghost effects caused by red light reducing ghost and flare caused by light entering the lens diagonally.|
|Electromagnetic Diaphragm Mechanism||Aspherical Lens|
|An electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism provides highly accurate electronic diaphragm or aperture blade control when using auto exposure during continuous shooting.||Aspherical lenses enable a more compact lens size and minimises coma and other types of lens aberrations, even when used at the widest aperture. They are particularly useful in correcting distortion in wide-angle lenses by continuously changing the refractive index from the center of the lens. This reduces the number of standard (spherical) elements necessary.|
|ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) Glass||Super Integrated Coating|
|An optical glass developed by Nikon that is used with normal optical glass in telephoto lenses to obtain optimum correction of chromatic aberrations.||Nikon Super Integrated Coating is Nikon's term for its multilayer coating of the optical elements in NIKKOR lenses.|
Using the Z cameras' superior in-camera image stabilization system for up to 5 stops* of pitch, roll, yaw, X and Y shake correction. Additional electronic VR (e-VR) available during video capture.
*Based on CIPA Standard
Powered by an ultra-quiet stepping motor and enhanced by the additional light gathered by the Z Mount, focusing is fast, silent and accurate. Great for stills; even better for video.
