NIKON INTRODUCES HIGH-PERFORMANCE, COMPACT S-LINE ZOOM LENS

London, United Kingdom, 28th October 2021: Nikon today introduces its latest zoom lens, the versatile NIKKOR Z 24-120mm f/4 S. With a lightweight build, advanced optics and a broad zoom range, this is the lens for any scenario. From ancient architecture and lively street photography to detailed portraits and sweeping landscapes, it allows users to capture all angles without having to change lens.

The NIKKOR Z 24-120mm f/4 S is a high-performance walkaround travel lens. Boasting a constant maximum aperture of f/4, it is built for controlled, creative shooting that delivers stunning detail. It provides smooth operability and a multi-focusing system that ensures incredibly fast and accurate autofocusing across the entire zoom range.

Combining high performance with a lightweight and compact body, the NIKKOR Z 24-120mm f/4 S is ‘travel ready’ for those shooting stills and video alike. It offers superb video performance with virtually no focus breathing, ensuring consistent framing when refocusing during recording. If the user is transitioning from interiors to exteriors, or between darker and lighter scenes, stable exposure control enables a natural shift in brightness for beautiful looking footage.

The lens’s ARNEO Coat and Nano Crystal Coat, meanwhile, combat ghosting and flare caused by incidental light coming from any direction, to ensure crystal clear shots.

Sealed to protect from dust and drips, the NIKKOR Z 24-120mm f/4 S includes Nikon's Fluorine coating on the front element, which repels dirt and easily wipes clean.

NIKKOR Z 24-120mm f/4 S - one lens, endless possibilities:

• A wide to mid-telephoto zoom lens with superior optics
• Outstanding imagery across extensive zoom range
• Constant aperture of f/4, providing versatility and agility for the shooter
• Consistent zoom across video and stills
• A short minimum focusing distance and 0.39 maximum reproduction ratio
• Flexible 24-120mm focal-length range
• Superb video performance with little to no focus breathing
• Customisable controls, featuring a dedicated function button and control ring to assign various functions based on user’s preferences
• Lightweight and compact body, making it easily portable
• Multi-focusing system, using two AF drive units to deliver fast and accurate autofocusing
• ARNEO Coat and Nano Crystal Coat, which combats ghosting and flare
• Sealed to protect from dust and drips, including Nikon's Fluorine coating, repelling dirt

At 17.00 today, a short livestream on the Nikon Europe YouTube channel will include a live talk with a Q&A about the Z 9 launch.

Meanwhile, on November 5th between 12.00 – 20.00 an exclusive virtual event, #NikonDays, will celebrate the whole Z series system, including Nikon’s most advanced flagship camera, the Z 9.
