Pre-orders have now started for the new Nikkor Z 14-30mm F4 S lens, the first ultra-wide zoom for its full-frame mirrorless system.
The lens weighs just 485g (17oz) and supports screw-in (82mm) filters. The lens is comprised of 14 elements, including four aspherical and four ED. Nikon’s Nano Crystal Coat helps prevent ghosting and flare, and a fluorine coating makes it easier to clean water drops and fingerprints off of the front and back elements.
Like with all of Nikon’s Z-mount lenses, the 14-30mm F4 is sealed against dust and moisture. There’s also a customizable control ring which can be assigned to handle manual focus, exposure compensation or aperture control.
The Nikkor Z 14-30mm F4 S will be available this Spring (Amazon.com says April 30th) for $1299 US dollars. Further details and sample images can be found on Nikon’s website.
