TOKYO - Nikon Corporation (Nikon) is pleased to announce the release of the fast, ultrawide-angle zoom lens NIKKOR Z 14-24mm f/2.8 S that is compatible with full-frame (Nikon FX-format) mirrorless cameras for which the Nikon Z mount has been adopted.

The NIKKOR Z 14-24mm f/2.8 S is a fast, ultrawide-angle zoom lens that is part of the S-Line*1 of NIKKOR Z lenses. Throughout the entire zoom range, a constant fast maximum aperture of f/2.8 is maintained while delivering incredibly sharp and clear rendering performance from maximum aperture and throughout the entire frame. It is the world's shortest*2 and lightest*2 lens in its class, with a length of approximately 124.5 mm and a weight of approximately 650 g. The NIKKOR Z 14-24mm f/2.8 S is the perfect lens for a wide variety of landscapes, from starry skies and mountain scenes to cityscapes. It allows users to enjoy recording of both stills and videos, with the realistic and dynamic expression characteristic of ultrawide-angle lenses.

Additionally, in comparison to the AF-S NIKKOR 14-24mm f/2.8G ED, point-image reproduction of point light sources, as well as backlight resistance which effectively suppresses ghost and flare even under harsh lighting conditions, have both improved drastically. Despite being an ultrawide-angle lens with a maximum aperture of f/2.8, adoption of a lens with aspherical surfaces on both sides for the front-most element has realized a front surface that is very nearly flat. This enables the attachment of filters via the dedicated lens hood, responding to a variety of photographers' needs.

What's more, in pursuit of operability for video shooting in addition to still-image shooting, stepping motors (STMs) and a control ring have been adopted, supporting smooth operability and quietness. The outstanding rendering performance characteristic of S-Line lenses can be enjoyed in video shooting as well.

The NIKKOR Z 14-24mm f/2.8 S joins the NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S and NIKKOR Z 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S to cover the wide-angle, standard, and telephoto ranges, greatly expanding the possibilities of imaging expression for high amateur and professional photographers alike.

Nikon will continue to pursue a new dimension in optical performance while meeting users' needs, contributing to the development of imaging culture, with the hope of expanding possibilities for imaging expression.
