Nikon Z 14-30mm f/4


At last year's Photokina, we were given the chance to take a look at the Nikkor Z 14-30mm f/4 lens, promised to be released in 2019 and Nikon have stuck to their promise as the new full-frame ultra-wide-angle lens is now available. 

First seen on the company's lens road-map, the Nikkor Z 14-30mm f/4 is designed to be used with the Nikon Z mirrorless cameras and it's the world's first full-frame ultra-wide-angle lens to feature a flat front element. The lens is also compact, features a retractable lens mechanism, is weather sealed and it fits 82mm filters. 

Nikon says that the new Nikkor Z optical formulas and fast communication between lens and camera ensure the distortion common to wide-angle photography is minimised. They also promise that sharpness will be 'exceptional'. 

The Nikkor Z 14-30mm f/4 lens will be available from April 2019 with an RRP of £1349.

Apart from uniqueness, if there any benefit to having a flat front element?

e.g. Filters can be fitted closer?

Looks great. So, the RRP in the US is $1299, but it's 1349 here.

Aren't US prices before taxes?
Still seems over priced, perhaps the UK price include VAT and Brexit??

I'm sure you're right, although I've read that some US online retailers don't apply state taxes. It's 1449 in Germany so guess the price is much the same everywhere.

With lenses like this it means that filters can be fitted - unlike the 14-24 or Canons 11-24 where filters either go in the back or you have to find a specialist adapter/system such as Lee's 150 filters...

I suspect that a flat front may improve flare resistance as well.
