NIKKOR Z 14-30mm f/4 S – BEST MIRRORLESS WIDE ANGLE ZOOM LENS AWARD

An Ultrawide-Normal Zoom

Featuring a design with a nearly flat front lens, the 14-30mm allows for use of filter attachments (82 mm) on the front element thread. Lens construction incorporates 14 elements in all, with four ED elements and Nikon’s Nano Crystal coating to reduce flare and ghosting, plus a stepping motor for smooth and quiet AF, a sought-after feature for both stills and especially video capture. Sealed against dust and moisture [1], the lens also has a customisable control ring that can be utilised for manual focus [2], aperture, and exposure compensation. The lens is lightweight, at approximately 485 g.

[1] This lens was designed with careful consideration given to dust- and drip-resistant performance, however, perfect dust-proof and weatherproof performance cannot be guaranteed under all conditions.

[2] M/A mode allows you to switch from autofocus to manual simply by rotating the control ring.
