Nikon Nikkor Z 24 mm f/1.8 S lens review by LensTips:


  • solid, weather-sealed, mostly metal casing,
  • negligible lateral chromatic aberration,
  • lack of serious distortion problems,
  • moderate vignetting on the APS-C/DX sensor,
  • silent and quite accurate autofocus,
  • very good performance against bright light.


  • distinct vignetting on full-frame,
  • a lot of coma-related problems,
  • noticeable astigmatism,
  • too weak image quality on the edge of the frame near the maximum relative aperture.

→ A nice reference library of vintage Nikon brochures and manuals can be found here.
