Express Your Inner Adventurer with the Wide-Ranging NIKKOR Z 24-120mm f/4 S

Capture a wide variety of scenes by utilising the vast focal range and superior optical capabilities

TOKYO – Nikon Corporation introduces a brand-new lens in the NIKKOR Z lens lineup, the NIKKOR Z 24-120mm f/4 S that provides users with the superior optical performance of the S-Line across the entire zoom range, from the wide-angle to telephoto zoom. Be it breath-taking landscapes, intimate portraits or tantalising delicacies, users will be able to experience the world and capture its beauty through the versatility and portability of the lens that lets them make the most of their adventures.

The NIKKOR Z 24-120mm f/4 S reflects our commitment to further creators’ abilities and support them in fulfilling their creative pursuit, turning their vision into reality. The lens’ ability to focus and produce sharp details at both 24mm and 120mm, while maintaining a constant f/4 aperture that attains beautiful bokeh even in the telephoto range, makes it the perfect addition for advanced amateurs and hobbyists who wish to widen their horizons and produce high-quality stills and movies.


Capture a whole new world with a broader spectrum 

Get the best perspectives and cover more ground with the wide-angle to telephoto NIKKOR Z 24-120mm f/4 S. Users will be able to experience greater flexibility and versatility with its 5x standard zoom range that covers a wider telephoto range of up to 120mm. At just approximately 630g, the lens weighs the lightest[1] in its class, making it extremely portable to bring around, and utilise without the need to switch across multiple lenses to capture diverse scenes and genres.

Featuring Nikon’s well-known outstanding dust- and drip-resistance[2] and antifouling performance, the lens bodes well for photographers regardless of weather and terrain conditions. Whether it is for travel, street snaps or special moments such as weddings, cleaning is made easy when in contact with dirt and dust – simply by wiping it off – with the adoption of a fluorine coat on the outer surface of the frontmost lens element.

Delivering the exceptional performance of the highly acclaimed S-Line lens series

Equipped with superior optical capabilities of the S-Line lens series that adheres to a higher level of manufacturing and engineering, the NIKKOR Z 24-120mm f/4 S redefines optical perfection and provides users with its ability to achieve outstanding resolution. With the lens’ well-crafted optical system of a combination of Extra-low Dispersion (ED), aspherical ED, and aspherical lens, axial chromatic aberration is greatly minimised to deliver high-quality imagery with minimal colour bleeding and reproduce texture faithfully, all the way to the edges of the frame. The adoption of Nano Crystal Coat and ARNEO Coat provides further reinforcement and tolerance for harsh backlight shooting situations by effectively suppressing ghosting and flaring.

No moments are missed with the improved autofocus (AF) performance that is quiet, yet highly responsive and accurate when it comes to subject acquisition. Accompanied by the multi-focusing system that utilises multiple AF drive units, sharp and high-resolution stills and movies are attained even when shooting subjects close distances.

Customised functions for smoother operations

Enjoy the high operability and customisability for an efficient and easy user shooting experience. With the various controls and functions that support a wide range of shooting opportunities, customise the NIKKOR Z 24-120mm f/4 S to meet your needs. Be in full control and assign your frequently used functions such as ISO sensitivity, aperture, and exposure compensation to the control ring and L-Fn button for quick access and adjustments so that you can focus on capturing the moments.

The control ring also provides effortless operation when it comes to movie recording, with the smooth operational feel and its ability to deliver a natural shift in focus position and brightness level. Further consideration is given for focus breathing, featuring the highly effective reduction of focus shifting when recording videos, especially zooming in/out of the 24mm to 120mm focal range, and the angle of view when adjusting focus. During filming from scene to scene, gradual, natural changes is achieved with precise aperture control and stable exposure control. Eliminate unwanted noises with the quiet operation of the NIKKOR Z 24-120mm f/4 S, thanks to the AF mechanism with stepping motor (STM) and diaphragm mechanism.

In November 2018, Nikon announced its milestone achievement of 110 million in total production of NIKKOR lenses for Nikon interchangeable lens cameras.

In November 2023, Nikon celebrated its 90th anniversary for NIKKOR, which has grown into an internationally recognised brand that pushes the boundaries of imaging excellence.
