The Nikkor Z 14-24mm f/2.8 S Lens
« on: November 02, 2022, 16:40:57 »
Some of these new Nikon Z “S” series lenses are remarkable. I have several, and the Z 14-24 “S” f/2.8 is right up there with the best of them, IMO.

It is sharp, sharp, sharp and very well corrected, so much better than Nikon lenses covering this same reach in the past. As a close-up photographer, I don’t shoot wide often, yet when I do, I want the faster f/2.8 and other refinements, so although expensive, I am happy to have it.

As mentioned, not used to shooting wide, so these are just attempts and my getting used to the lens. It is VERY light compared to what I would expect. The lens cap is weird; it only goes on in one position, rather than just snap it on.

I can already see that this is one of those ‘special’ lenses, yet as mentioned, Nikon “S” lenses are almost all pretty special.

I offer a couple shots of our kitchen, being remodeled, a maple table in the living room (I just finished making the table), a couple shots out in the yard of the outdoor shine building and a small stupa, and a photo of one of the shrines in our dharma center. This will get me started.
