Experience cutting-edge innovation with this superbly crafted filter-attachable lens. Increased design flexibility, thanks to the Z series’ short flange focal distance, delivers superior optical performance, all in a lightweight and portable body. Shoot incredible panoramas and landscapes during your adventures with comfort and ease, with the retractable mechanism that reduces the size of the overall lens. Enjoy the ability to shoot magnificent scenes on the go with the NIKKOR Z 14-30mm f/4 S.

SHARPER AND SMOOTHER

Photograph the beauty of the urban jungle at night with a maximum aperture. This lens is ready to capture your vision with edge-to-edge clarity. Get a closer look of perfection with the NIKKOR Z 14-30mm f/4 S’s 14 elements, including four Extra-Low Dispersion (ED) glass elements, four aspherical lens elements, and the application of Nikon’s very own Nano Crystal Coat. Experience superb resolution optimised specifically for high-pixel-count digital cameras, such as the Nikon Z 7. Additionally, with a high tolerance for backlight, and focus breathing reduction, the lens delivers crisp and clear compositions.

MORE CONTROL NEAR AND FAR

Experience true versatility with the incredible NIKKOR Z 14-30mm f/4 S. This ultra-wide-angle 14mm lens has a 114° angle of view and is more than capable of capturing a variety of scenes, from landscapes and architecture, to intimate portraits, delivering a world of choice all in a single lens. A maximum aperture of f/4 also gives you the ability to shoot using the same aperture throughout the zoom range. Focus-breathing reduction allows for a smoother shooting experience, and also facilitates easier focus stacking, giving you a cleaner shot, even during video recordings.

NEXT LEVEL FUNCTIONALITY

Experience the world’s first*1 filter-attachable FX-format full-frame compatible ultra-wide-angle lens at 14mm. With its ability to attach an 82-mm-diameter filter, the NIKKOR Z 14-30mm f/4 S adds a new level of functionality, perfect for those who prefer to add a colour or effect gradation to their images optically. Photographers can also be rest assured of a continuous ease in shooting despite it being a wide-angle lens, thanks to the almost flat front lens element which enables the lens to be easily protected by a lens hood or used with a filter.

CINEMATIC MASTERY

Create your own cinematic masterpieces with a wider range of filming capabilities. Experience focus-breathing reduction to capture and record smoother scenes transition, and quieter operation achieved through the stepping motor equipped in its autofocus mechanism. Additionally, the electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism allows for stable exposure control over your aperture when moving from different lighting conditions, such as from indoor to outdoor, so you aren’t limited by your environment.

COMFORTABLE AND COMPACT

Experience a lens with outstanding optical performance, cutting-edge operability and easy handling all in one. The NIKKOR Z 14-30mm f/4 S employs a button-less retractable mechanism triggered by the zoom ring that helps reduce its overall length, turning this lens into a compact piece of equipment that’s easy to carry. Operability is taken to the next level with a control ring to assign settings, providing you a smooth and comfortable shooting experience for both films and stills.

SUPERIOR OPTICAL PERFORMANCE ACHIEVES EXCEPTIONAL RENDERING ACROSS THE ENTIRE FRAME

The NIKKOR Z 14-30mm f/4 S adopts four ED glass and four aspherical lens elements. It delivers the superior optical performance that only the S-Line lenses can offer, including superb resolution that brings out the full potential of high-pixel-count digital cameras, such as the Z 7 with 45.7 effective megapixels. Thanks to its outstanding resolving power, peripheral subjects can be rendered sharply. Superb point-image reproduction is achieved when capturing point light sources in night landscapes or starry night skies utilizing ultra-wide angles of view. Nano Crystal Coat effectively reduces ghost and flare, ensuring clear images even when shooting at ultra-wide angles of view, in compositions where the sun tends to be included in the shot.

COMPACT AND LIGHTWEIGHT LENS FOR WIDER SHOOTING APPLICATIONS

While maintaining the minimum required size to deliver an extremely high standard of optical performance, this lens provides outstanding portability, making it an ideal partner for the compact Z series cameras. The easy-to-carry, approx. 485 g lightweight body employs a lens mechanism that can extend/retract the lens via zoom ring rotation without pressing a button, ensuring remarkable agility for faster shooting compared to conventional retractable-type lenses.

 

WORLD’S FIRST* FILTER-ATTACHABLE ULTRA-WIDE-ANGLE ZOOM LENS COVERING A FOCAL LENGTH FROM 14 MM

The NIKKOR Z 14-30mm f/4 S covers a focal length from 14 mm to 30 mm, allowing it to deliver images with dynamic perspectives, as well as capture a broad range of scenes. With its small diameter and slim front lens element, it is the world’s first* wide-angle zoom lens with a focal length from 14 mm that is also filter-attachable. Photographers can shoot more creatively with Polarizing or ND filters, which cannot be used with conventional lenses. Because the lens can be protected with a filter or lens hood, is sealed for dust- and drip-resistance and has a fluorine coat applied to its front surface, photographers can shoot more actively with ease.

CONSTANT MAXIMUM APERTURE AT F/4 THROUGHOUT THE ZOOM RANGE

The maximum aperture is fixed at f/4 at any zoom setting. Photographers can shoot at faster shutter speeds without raising sensitivity even for relatively dark scenes. While many zoom lenses change the maximum aperture according to focal length, this lens enables photographers to reflect their intentions with exposure control.

ENHANCED MOVIE RECORDING PERFORMANCE ACHIEVED THROUGH RIGOROUS DESIGN

The NIKKOR Z 14-30mm f/4 S employs a control ring that can have various functions assigned to it, such as focus (M/A*), aperture and exposure compensation, ensuring smooth and quiet operation with an appropriate amount of torque. Focus breathing (shifting of the angle of view when adjusting focus) is effectively compensated for smoother movie recording. The lens also incorporates various advanced movie functions, including smooth diaphragm control that enables natural transitions in image brightness during recording.

* M/A mode allows you to switch from autofocus to manual simply by rotating the control ring.

OTHER FEATURES AND FUNCTIONS

• Highly accurate AF control for both still and movie shooting, thanks to higher standards of lens design principles and minutely detailed lens information enabled by high-speed, large-capacity communication between camera and lens • Stepping motor (STM) employed for quiet and responsive AF control • Electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism provides accurate, stable aperture control even during high-speed continuous shooting
