    Nikon Nikkor Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S review

    The Nikkor Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S lens has the Nikon Z mount and is designed for use with Nikon’s new mirrorless cameras. It sits alongside the Nikkor Z 24-70mm f/4 S, which was introduced with the Z 7, and is designed to appeal to professional and dedicated enthusiast photographers who want to restrict depth of field more than is possible at f/4, or enjoy an extra stop of light.

    Its 17-element, 15-group construction includes two ED (low-dispersion) elements and four aspherical elements. Along with its Nano Crystal coating, Nikon uses its new ARNEO anti-reflective coating, which is said to suppress flare from light traveling perpendicularly through the lens (the Nano Crystal Coating is designed to deal with those issues arising from multi-directional light). The 9-blade aperture is rounded for attractive bokeh.

    Another quote later in the article:

    Many professional photographers consider their 24-70mm f/2.8 their standard, everyday workhorse optic. The Nikkor Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S sets a new benchmark by which other 24-70mm lenses will be judged.
