Summary

The Nikon Z 24-70mm f4S is a general-purpose zoom for Nikon’s Z-format full-frame mirrorless cameras. The lens features a constant f4 focal ratio, fast and quiet focusing, and a compact design that’s a perfect match for Z bodies. It’s the standard ‘kit-zoom’ for Z bodies, but is it any good? Ahead of our full review, check out a variety of sample images!

Samples

The following images were taken with the Nikon Z 24-70mm f4S lens mounted on a 46MP Nikon Z7 body. The images are RAW files developed in Lightroom 7.5/CRAW 10.5 to Adobe Color profile, built-in lens profile, CA-removal=ON, Noise Reduction=OFF, sharpening=50/0.5/36/10. I only did the occasional exposure compensation in post-processing. The individual exposure details are available for each image. All of the images are available to download in their original formats for analysis at Flickr. These files are for personal evaluation only and cannot be used in another publication or website without permission. Want more samples?
