The Nikkor Z 24-70mm is a normal range, zoom lens for the Nikon Z mirrorless system.

Release date for the 24-70mm S is set for October 3, 2018. You can preorder your copy here.
The 24-70 f/4 features 14 elements in 11 groups – packed fairly tightly into what seems to be a lightweight lens. There has been some complaining that an f/2.8 wasn’t chosen to be the first lens, but I don’t think that’s as big a deal as people make it out to be. Assuming the IBIS in the Nikon Z7 and Nikon Z6 cameras is decent, the f/4 will perform just fine. If you crave tons of bokeh, then wait and get the 58mm f/0.95 noct.
The blue elements are aspherical, the yellow are ED elements and the orange element is aspherical, ED glass.
MTF Charts for the Nikkor Z 24-70mm f/4
The MTF seems in line with the the 50mm f/1.8 and the 35mm f/1.8 – though I think its still going to be excellent with a little more of a 3D look to it. Micro contrast looks to be exceptional which is very important.
I’ll continue to update this page as we get more information. I’ll have sample images as soon as I can get a copy to use.
