NEW Z NIKKOR 14-24mm f/2.8 Lens
The new 14-24 Z NIKKOR lens, which will should be available in mid-November, is the smallest, lightest 14-24 2.8 ever produced. This is made possible by the size of the Z mount and the flange back of the Z cameras.The new lens will not only be 30% smaller and lighter than previous models, it will be the first wide angle zoom to take filters.
Typically photographers have been limited to using large, expensive square filters and filter holders on this type of lens. But this newest NIKKOR lens from Nikon will take 112MM filters. Nikon will launch 2 filters, specifically an ND and a Polarizing filter.
