Nikon Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S Review
Sharpness at 35mm
Our sharpness tests are carried out by photographing a real-world subject rather than a test chart. The Nikkor Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S Lens Review was attached to a Nikon Z 7, which in turn was mounted on a sturdy tripod. Self-timer mode was activated to steady the camera completely. Any slight tonal changes you may see across the crops are a result of slight changes in natural light during the shooting session.
The full frame at 35mm
At 35mm, it’s a very similar performance again. While sharpness is very good at both f/2.8 and f/4, it’s at f/5.6 that centre sharpness is strongest. It remains excellent at f/8, before showing an ever so slight drop off in sharpness at f/11 and again at f/16. At f/22 we can see the softest results, but the overall impression of sharpness is very good throughout all apertures. At the edges of the frame, the best results can be seen at f/8 and f/11.
