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

Cameralabs published their Nikon Nikkor Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S lens review – their verdict: “The Nikon Z 24-70mm f2.8 S is a general-purpose zoom designed for Nikon’s full-frame Z-series mirrorless cameras and aimed at professional photographers. The first native zoom in the Z series with an f2.8 focal ratio, the Z 24-70mm f2.8 S dispenses with the retracting barrel of the f4 models for a more traditional appearance, but becomes the first with a dedicated manual focusing ring in addition to a separate custom ring, as well as a customisable function button and an OLED display, the latter indicating focal length, aperture, focusing distance and depth-of-field in a similar way to the Zeiss Batis lenses. The lens itself is inevitably heftier than the f4 version in the range, but manages to be shorter and lighter than its Nikkor DSLR equivalent thanks to a new optical design.” Amazon now lists the shipping date for the Nikkor Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S lens as April 11th: B&H lists the shipping date as April 29th: Amazon UK says April 30th, Calumet.de date is April 25th.

More Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 500mm f/5.6E PF ED VR lens reviews

More Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 500mm f/5.6E PF ED VR lens reviews: First, check this 500mm f/5.6 blog post by Bruce Leventhal (a full guest post is coming soon). “The extra stop of light afforded by the AF-S 500mm f/4E FL ED VR will appeal to some, but if you’re shooting with one of Nikon’s latest full-frame DSLRs, cranking up the ISO by a stop to achieve the same shutter speed with the AF-S 500mm f/5.6E PF ED VR isn’t that big of a deal.” ( Techradar ) “When I was told the lens I was testing was a 500mm 5.6 I started to think about hitting the gym before the shoot

First Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 500mm f/5.6E PF ED VR lens reviews

70-200mm f/2.8E, 500mm f/5.6E and 200-500mm f/5.6E Kevin Lisota published his review of the Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 500mm f/5.6E PF ED VR lens: “Handling of the lens is very similar to carrying a 70-200mm f/2.8 lens. It is easy to carry and handhold, where some of its larger siblings can be fatiguing or require a monopod for any significant amount of shooting. It is still ~3 lbs, so you will feel it on your shoulders if you carry it around for an extended period of time, like a 70-200mm f/2.8 lens.
