The Phoblographer’s Guide to Nikon Z Mount Lenses

Here you’ll find our real-world reviews for all Nikon Z mount lenses. 

Nikon’s Z mount cameras have been around for a little while now, and it has given Nikon some time to flesh out their lineup of Nikon Z mount Lenses. We have been working hard to bring you real-world reviews of all Nikon Z mount lenses when they hit the streets, and will continue to as more are released. In the coming weeks, months, and years there will be an explosion of Nikon Z mount lenses, and that is why we have decided to make a Z mount buyers guide. Here you’ll find all of our Nikon Z mount lens reviews in one place so that you can get the information you need in a hurry.

At the time of writing this guide, there aren’t a great number of Z mount lenses, but we know this will change soon. There are plenty of Nikon Z mount lenses scheduled to be released in 2020 and far beyond. As soon as we have our hands on new lenses, and as soon as we’ve completed our real-world reviews, we will add them to this guide immediately. If you’ve been looking for a one-stop-shop for your Nikon Z mount needs, you’ve found it right here. Check out the Nikon Z mount lenses we’ve reviewed below.


Nikon NIKKOR Z 35mm F1.8 S


Nikon Z Mount 35mm

In our review, we said:

“Overall, we found the image quality of the lens to be damn good. It’s sharp, has creamy bokeh, and doesn’t really give you an sort of issues when it comes to the image quality. Couple this with the lens being very compact and you’ve got a great product.”

Nikon 50mm F1.8 Z S


In our review, we said:

“We subjected the lens through a slew of inclement weather conditions in and around New York City, as well as the inland shores of Cape Cod during late Fall/early Winter, and 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.”

In our review, we said:

“the Nikon NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f4 S covers a popular zoom range and will do a fine job as a walk around lens thanks to its compact size.”

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.”
