Nikon further expands its line-up of f/1.8 S-Line mirrorless primes with the NIKKOR Z 24mm f/1.8 S. With advanced optics, great close-up performance, and weather sealing, this full-frame lens offers real versatility. As good in tight spaces as it is with vast landscapes and city skylines, the latest addition to our S-Line NIKKOR lenses captures incredible detail in diverse situations.

This fast-focusing 24mm prime lens delivers beautiful edge-to-edge sharpness, even when shooting at the widest aperture of f/1.8. A minimum focus distance of just 0.25m gives users control of the frame, from close-up to infinity. Bokeh is beautifully smooth and natural-looking, and the lens flare common to wide-angle lenses is effectively countered, even in backlit situations. 

Summary of key features

  • F/1.8 wide-angle NIKKOR Z prime lens: ultra-sharp from edge to edge, and brilliant in low light, this 24mm lens captures every component of a scene with great clarity. 
  • Exceptional close-up: with a minimum focus distance of just 0.25m, image sharpness at close-up is superior to comparable lenses of this focal length. 
  • Weather sealing: every movable part of the lens barrel is sealed to protect from dust and water droplets. 
  • Great for movies: near-silent AF allows the user to get close to the subject without drawing attention away from the moment. The control ring can be used for silent aperture control or exposure compensation, and as a focus ring when shooting in manual focus.

“The NIKKOR Z 24mm f/1.8 S gives Nikon Z shooters the freedom to work with available light in practically any situation. Plus its close focusing performance is outstanding: the sharpness is incredible, even when you focus the lens on close-up subjects or object details.” 

Robert Harmon, Senior Commercial Planning Manager, Nikon UK

The full-frame NIKKOR Z 24mm f/1.8 S is well-suited for video shooting too. Moviemakers can capture footage with stunning shallow depth of field and the lens’ balanced perspective works as well for master shots as it does for filming interviews in cramped interiors. 

The NIKKOR Z 24mm f/1.8 S will be available to purchase from the 17th of October 2019 at the RRP of £1049.
