BEST WIDE ANGLE ZOOM LENS

Nikon NIKKOR Z 14-24mm f/2.8 S


Super wide-angle lenses face particular optical challenges, including ghosting, flare, and coma. This smaller and lighter Z version of Nikon’s classic 14-24 mm super-wide zoom takes full advantage of Nikon’s latest lens technology to help suppress incidental light from every direction. For example, Anti-reflective Nano Crystal Coat and ARNEO coatings on lens elements, plus the use of aspherical elements and advances in Z mount technology, keep pinpoints of light sharp and clear and free from sagittal coma and flare, evident in photos made of city lights and starry nights. There’s a handy in-lens filter slot, a great benefit considering the 112 mm filter thread, plus an AF stepper motor that works in near silence, great for quiet video work and smooth still shooting.
