Product Overview

Reviewers from cameralabs have found:
The Nikon Z 24mm f1.8 S is a very good wide angle prime lens for owners of Z-series mirrorless bodies. Resolution and contrast is as good or even better than the Zeiss 28mm f 1.4 Otus - which is no small feat. It also delivers usable close-up performance when stopped down a little and retains its high contrast exceptionally well even in contra-light situations. Plus its size and weight makes it a good match for the compact Z- series bodies it's designed for.
Pros
  • Very good sharpness and contrast
  • Very good build quality
  • Compact and lightweight
Cons
  • Not as sharp as the Zeiss 28mm f1.4 Otus

Reviewers from digitaltrends have found:
The Nikkor Z 24mm is constructed from 12 lens elements in 10 groups and uses a nine-blade aperture. The lens tips the scale at nearly a pound and takes up 3.8 inches in the camera bag. Autofocus was good in most conditions, but struggled in low light.
Pros
  • Sharpness at f/1.8 aperture
  • Weather-sealing
  • Dust and splash protection
Cons
  • Bulky design
  • Bulky build

Reviewers from pcmag have found:
The Nikkor Z 24mm is a new optical design, built to take advantage of the short distance between lens mount and sensor. It weighs 15.9 ounces, supports 72mm filters, and ships with front and rear caps. Autofocus is quick and silent, and the lens exhibits almost no change in angle of view as focus is adjusted.
Pros
  • Fast autofocus
  • Dust and splash protection
  • Easy to use
Cons
  • No fluorine coating
