Additional coverage: Nikkor Z 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 VR S and NIKKOR Z 24-120mm f/4 S lenses



Additional coverage of the new Nikkor Z 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 VR S and Nikkor Z 24-120mm f/4 S lenses:

Nikkor Z 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 VR S lens

  • Focal length at the maximum telephoto position becomes 560 mm with the Z TELECONVERTER TC-1.4x, and 800 mm with the Z TELECONVERTER TC-2.0x, while maintaining high resolution*1.
  • Multi-focusing system that utilizes two STMs (stepping motors), enabling fast, precise and quiet AF operation for both stills and videos.
  • Employs an optical vibration reduction function with an effect equivalent to a shutter speed 5.5 stops faster*2, which is the highest among NIKKOR Z lenses.
  • While lateral chromatic aberration is optically corrected, axial chromatic aberration is also significantly reduced via the adoption of Super ED glass and ED glass elements, providing clear images across the entire frame from maximum aperture.
  • Nikon’s original Nano Crystal Coat and ARNEO Coat are both adopted to effectively reduce ghost and flare effects even in backlit situations.
  • The highest maximum reproduction ratio of 0.38x (at the maximum telephoto position) in its class*3 that lets users shoot subjects in large size.
  • Employs “Inner Balance Technology” — a first for Nikon models, that reduces shifting of the center of gravity when zooming in from the wide-angle position to the telephoto position.
  • The shortest*3 rotation angle of 80 degrees in its class for the zoom ring enables users to rotate the zoom ring from the wide-angle position to the telephoto position in just one motion, without adjusting lens holding.
  • A smooth and quiet control ring that realizes high operability.
  • Features a design giving consideration to video recording, including effectively reduced shifting of a focus position when zooming in/out and the angle of view when adjusting focus.
  • Superior dust- and drip-resistant capability*4, high reliability that comes from both robustness and weather resistance, and excellent anti-fouling performance via the employment of fluorine coat are realized.
  • Nikon HB-103 lens hood
  • Sample photos

Nikkor Z 24-120mm f/4 S lens

  • Covering the telephoto range up to 120 mm, a wide variety of scenes can be handled with high optical performance across the entire zoom range for both stills and videos.
  • A minimum focus distance of 0.35 m allows users to get closer to their subjects.
  • Multi-focusing system that utilizes two STMs (stepping motors), enabling fast, precise and quiet AF operation for both stills and videos.
  • Effective compensation for chromatic aberration with the employment of three ED glass, one aspherical ED glass, and three aspherical lens elements in the optical system.
  • Nikon’s original Nano Crystal Coat and ARNEO Coat are both adopted to effectively reduce ghost and flare effects even in backlit situations.
  • A smooth and quiet control ring that realizes high operability.
  • Features a design giving consideration to video recording, including effectively reduced shifting of a focus position when zooming in/out and the angle of view when adjusting focus.
  • Superior dust- and drip-resistant capability*4, and excellent anti-fouling performance with the employment of fluorine coat are realized.
  • Nikon HB-102 lens hood
  • Sample photos


*1AF performance may deteriorate depending on the subject, brightness and focus position regardless of the camera body, causing inaccurate focus, slow focusing speed or flashing of the focus point.
*2Based on CIPA Standard. This value is achieved when attached to a camera with full-frame (Nikon FX-format) sensor, with the camera’s VR function set to “NORMAL”, and when zoom is set to the maximum telephoto position.
*3Among full-frame interchangeable lenses with a focal length range of 100-400 mm and maximum apertures of f/4.5 – f/5.6 for digital cameras with interchangeable lenses, available as of October 28, 2021. Statement based on Nikon research.
*4Perfect dustproof and waterproof performance is not guaranteed under all conditions.
