  • The NIKKOR Z 14-30mm f/4 S delivers the superior optical performance that only S-Line lenses can offer, including superb resolution that brings out the full potential of high-pixel-count digital cameras, for both still images and movies.
  • While delivering an extremely high standard of optical performance, an easy-to-carry, approx. 485 g lightweight body is realized thanks to the retractable mechanism, providing remarkable agility for faster shooting.
  • World's first* filter-attachable ultra-wide-angle zoom lens covering a focal length from 14 mm enables photographers to shoot more creatively by utilizing Polarizing or ND filters. Being able to protect the front lens element with a filter or lens hood also brings greater peace of mind in the field.
    • *Among full-frame (Nikon FX-format) interchangeable lenses for digital cameras with interchangeable lenses with a focal range beginning at 14 mm or lower, available as of January 8, 2019. Statement based on Nikon research.
  • Focal-length range covers from ultra-wide-angle 14 mm to wide-angle 30 mm*, delivering images with dynamic perspectives, while capturing a broad range of scenes.
    • *When using DX-format image area, the angle of view is equivalent to that of a 21-45 mm lens in 35mm format.
  • Constant maximum aperture of f/4 permits shooting using the same aperture throughout the zoom range, enabling photographers to reflect their intentions with exposure control.
  • Impressive movie recording performance is realized by intensive consideration even of details such as focus breathing compensation and minimized operational sound.
  • The control ring, to which functions such as focus (M/A), aperture and exposure compensation can be assigned, enables comfortable shooting with its superior operational feel.
  • Lens body is designed carefully considering dust- and drip-resistant performance for enhanced reliability.
  • Nikon's original fluorine coat is applied to the front lens surface, providing high antifouling performance.
  • Stepping motor (STM) is employed for quiet and responsive AF control.
  • Electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism provides accurate, stable aperture control even during high-speed continuous shooting.
