Product Overview

Nikon AF-S Nikkor 24-70mm F2.8E ED VR is a high-end standard zoom lens for Nikon F-mount. It covers the full-frame image circle. Introduced by Nikon in 2015, it has 20 elements in 16 groups.
Like most zoom lenses, the Nikon AF-S Nikkor 24-70mm F2.8E ED VR is externally-zooming. For incremental weathers, Nikon is kind enough to include weather sealing.
A standard zoom lens with relatively bright maximum aperture, the Nikon AF-S Nikkor 24-70mm F2.8E ED VR can be a key piece in a photographer's arsenal, though some may prefer prime lenses in this focal range. The lens is also stabilized, making it even easier to use for videos and stills alike.
