Nikon Nikkor Z 24mm f/1.8S Lens Review - Verdict

Nikkor Z 24mm F1,8S On Nikon Z7 Top View

Value For Money

The Nikon Nikkor Z 24mm f/1.8S lens is priced at £1049. An alternative, albeit with a reduced maximum aperture, might be the Kipon 24mm f/2.8 in Nikon Z fit, £499

To give an idea of value compared with other marques:

Clearly there are very few 24mm lenses for mirrorless cameras, and yet it is a very useful focal length. The alternatives I have found are f/1.4 optics, with just the Kipon representing third party manufacturers. At this quality level, the new Nikon lens looks fair value, especially taking the high standard of results into account.

Nikon Nikkor Z 24mm f/1.8S Verdict

Gorgeous results from a lens that is gorgeous to handle. Nikon really have cracked it with these Z series lenses. The quality is there and the price is still in the realm of being realistic. The handling is sublime.

So, to answer the initial question posed as to whether Nikon can do it for a fourth time in a row, yes they can. Thus a well deserved Editor's Choice for a cracking good lens.

The shutter speed at f/16 was relatively slow, so more than likely there was some movement in the leaves.
