Which Standard Lens Is the Best Option for Nikon Shooters?


One thing is for sure: Nikon mirrorless shooters are not at a loss for choice when it comes to standard zoom lenses. With four native options from Nikon, plus the option to pretty seamlessly adapt F mount options, you might be wondering which lens in the crowded field is right for your needs and budget. This excellent video comparison takes a look at five options and all their pros and cons to help you make the right choice. 

Coming to you from Matt Irwin Photography, this great video comparison takes a look at the Nikon NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/4 SNIKKOR Z 24-120mm f/4 S, NIKKOR Z 28-75mm f/2.8, NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S, and AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm f/2.8E ED VR lenses. I’ll probably never stop arguing that unless you really need that extra stop of aperture, the 24-120mm f/4 is one of the best options (and values) out there, as that extra reach at the long end makes it so much more versatile, particularly if you are looking for a single lens for things like a trip. That being said, we all have different needs, and you might appreciate something like the much more compact 24-70mm f/4. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Irwin.
