Nikon has announced the new NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S lens for its full-frame mirrorless cameras.
The lens is the first to feature Nikon’s new ARNEO coating, which complements Nikon’s Nano Crystal Coat to further reduce flare and ghosting.
“While Nano Crystal Coat suppresses ghosting and flare coming from backlight at diagonal angles, the ARNEO coat compensates for light entering the lens from vertical angles,” Nikon says. “This expanded field enables the lens to capture exceptional contrast and sharpness even when the light source is visible inside the frame.”
The lens is also the first NIKKOR Z lens to feature a dedicated manual focus ring (that’s present in addition to the customizable control ring), a Function (L-Fn) button, and an info display.
The Organic EL Lens Information Panel on the side of the lens displays key settings such as focus distance, depth-of-field, aperture, and focal length.
