Nikon Middle East FZE launched of its new S-Line lens, the Nikkor Z 24mm f/1.8 S for the Nikon Z series.

The new wide-angle lens is suited for outdoor and indoor photography, landscapes to nightscapes, in both stills and movies.

The lens is part of new Z-mount system, and is a fast 24mm wide-angle prime lens with nine diaphragm blades.

Despite being an ultra wide-angle lens, the Nikkor Z 24mm f/1.8 S offers effective distortion correction and edge-to-edge sharpness, where images with minimal distortion even at the periphery can be captured when shooting architecture or a starry sky.

“Our products are designed to meet our customers’ needs. The Nikkor Z 24mm f/1.8 S lens offers outstanding high-resolution perception and is remarkable for shooting portraits and infinity pictures. This lens’ optical performance is optimised by the Z mount’s inner mount diameter at 55mm and short flange focal distance at 16mm. It takes advantage of the Z mount system to deliver minimal distortion, beautiful bokeh, and superior point-image reproduction,” said Narendra Menon, Managing Director, Nikon Middle East FZE.

The lens employs extra-low dispersion (ED) glass elements that ensure superior image quality with minimal axial chromatic aberration.

The adoption of Nano Crystal Coat effectively suppresses ghost and flare, contributing to extremely clear photos and videos even in backlit portrait shooting. The lens also has a comfortable-to-operate control ring to which various functions can be assigned.
