The Nikon 24mm f1.8 Z is a great lens. Not only can it handle a lot of rain, but it’s got great image quality. We found it to be sharp with excellent colors and bokeh to boot. It’s also lightweight, so you’ll never want to take it off the camera.

Nikon 50mm F1.8 Z S

Nikon Z Mount

In our review, we said:

“We subjected the lens through a slew of inclement weather conditions in and around New York City. The lens never let us down. Even with gloves on, we were still able to operate the Customizable control ring as well as toggle the Autofocus/Manual Focus switch. All things considered, the Nikon NIKKOR Z 35mm f1.8 S is a workhorse lens that can handle quite a bit of abuse.”

NIKKOR Z 24-70mm F2.8 S

In our review, we said:

“The Nikon NIKKOR Z 24-70 f2.8 S’s hefty price is further justified by the lens’ ability to produce vibrant yet color-accurate images. The consistent sharpness throughout its focal range, and its ability to minimize chromatic aberrations and distortions. For many photographers who have made the switch to Nikon’s mirrorless Z mount, their wait for a fast and reliable workhorse zoom lens is finally over.”
