Travelling is all about making memories, and if you capture them, they won’t fade with time. The new NIKKOR Z 24-200mm f/4-6.3 VR telephoto zoom lens is the ideal travel companion for those exploring both the world of photography, and the one around them. Weighing approximately 570g, its lightweight and compact body is perfect for your adventures, and its versatile focal length from 24mm to 200mm allows you to capture a great diversity of scenes that include landscapes, portraits and close ups of the stunning sights you encounter. ‘Less is more’ is a golden rule of travel packing, and the easy-to-use NIKKOR Z 24-200mm f/4-6.3 VR lets you capture a wide range of subject matter in a single telephoto zoom lens.
THE LENS FOR EVERY OCCASION
Capture the vast array of experiences you’ll encounter, with the NIKKOR Z 24-200mm f/4-6.3 VR’s true versatility. With 8.3x high-power zoom, the lens delivers a wide angle of view from 24mm to 200mm with FX-format cameras, or 36mm to 300mm with DX-format cameras. While that ensures it will excel with wide-angle street shots of bustling old towns, it possesses great quality for close-up photography as well, letting you capture your subjects in crisp detail and natural bokeh with the NIKKOR Z 24-200mm f/4-6.3 VR’s minimum focus distance of 0.5m (at wide-angle) or 0.7m (at telephoto end), and maximum reproduction ratio of 0.28x.
STRIKE A PERFECT BALANCE
Carry the NIKKOR Z 24-200mm f/4-6.3 VR anywhere and everywhere your adventure takes you, thanks to its lightweight and compact body at approximately 570g. But don’t mistake lightweight for fragile. The employment of an aluminium-alloy mount, a first for NIKKOR lenses, ensures it’s robust and ready for the rigours of travel photography. With the large diameter and short focal length distance of the Z mount system, experience unchanged weight balance while shooting even when the lens is zoomed all the way in, as the lens elements were designed to ensure the front part of the lens doesn’t become too heavy.
From stunning landscapes to characterful faces, you will encounter some truly beautiful sights while you travel, and the outstanding optical performance of this lens is sure to do them justice. The Z mount system allows more light to enter the sensor, which helps achieve edge-to-edge sharpness and superior rendering performance that can be attained at every focal length.
The NIKKOR Z 24-200mm f/4-6.3 VR is constructed to reduce chromatic aberration which means you can achieve higher optical performance with greater colour saturation, contrast and image detail with the employment of aspherical Extra Low-dispersion (ED) glass, ED glass and aspherical lens elements.When you need to take images with a low shutter speed, like telephoto shooting or night landscapes, the lens’ effective in-built Vibration Reduction (VR) of up to 5.0 stops1,2 provides sufficient compensation effect, ensuring that your shots are sharp and clear.
This lens deals exceptionally well with backlight and minimises ghosting and flaring effects, with the incorporation of ARNEO Coat. In addition, the focus-breathing reduction feature lets you minimise the amount of shifting between angles of view while adjusting focus, allowing for easier focus stacking and landscape shooting.
STEADY AND SMOOTH FOCUS
Some moments simply can’t be captured in a photograph, and that’s when the NIKKOR Z 24-200mm f/4-6.3 VR makes capturing high quality movies a breeze. Silence is golden when you’re filming and this lens is imperceptibly quiet thanks to an AF mechanism built with a stepping motor (STM), electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism and click-less control ring. The control ring lets you smoothly record with natural shifts in focus points and brightness levels.
1 Based on CIPA Standard: this value is achieved when attached to a FX-format camera with the camera’s VR function set to “NORMAL”, and when zoom is set to the maximum telephoto position.
2 With the Z 7/Z 6, firmware update is required to activate in-lens VR in combination with in-camera VR. (Ver.2.1 or hereafter)
