Nikon Unveils the 50mm f/1.2 and 14-24mm f/2.8 S Lenses for the Z-Mount

7 days ago   |   By Peta Pixel

Nikon has just announced two of the most anticipated lenses for its full-frame mirrorless Z-series: the NIKKOR Z 50mm f/1.2 S and the NIKKOR Z 14-24mm f/2.8 S. The former is the fastest AF lens Nikon has ever produced, while the latter is “the world's shortest and lightest full-frame f/2.8 zoom lens with a 14mm field of view.”
Both of these lenses will add some much-needed excitement to the Z-Mount lens roadmap in the form of speed on the one hand, and a high-performance ultra-wide option on the other.
Let's take them one at a time.
