NIKKOR Z 24-50mm f/4-6.3 Kit Lens for Nikon Z5

July 21, 2020 | Mark Goldstein | Compact System Camera , Lenses | Comment |

The NIKKOR Z 24-50mm f/4-6.3 is the new kit lens for the Z5 entry-level full-frame mirrorless camera. This portable lens features a retractable design that is extended by rotating the zoom ring.

It doesn suffer somewhat from having a rather modest 24-50mm focal range, wide but pretty short for an all-in-one lens, and very slow f/4-6.3 maximum apertures, but there is a customisable control ring and Nikon claims that the focusing is quiet enough for video use.

The Nikon Z5 looks like such a capable camera that we'd probably skip this lens entirely and invest in some decent glass, like the Z 24-70mm f/4 S, unless the price for the Z5 kit is simply too tempting.

Launching alongside the Z5 camera is the portable NIKKOR Z 24-50mm f/4-6.3: the shortest and lightest full-frame mirrorless zoom lens around. It’s the perfect partner for the Nikon Z 5 and a great option for any Nikon Z creator who wants a truly portable full-frame zoom lens.

The super-portable NIKKOR Z 24-50mm f/4-6.3 is included in the core Nikon Z5 camera and lens kit. Small and sharp, this versatile new standard zoom lens covers some of the most iconic focal lengths out there and delivers superb performance for stills and movies.
