Comments: 16, on the topic: Announcement: Nikon Nikkor Z 24-200mm 1: 4-6.3 VR

  • Air force

    Because of this, was it worth inventing a new bayonet mount?

    • Arkady Shapoval

      Nothing, nothing like that coming soon Canon 24-105there will be f / 7.1 (open at the long end)

    • wj

      On the F-mount, as an analogue, there is only an ancient 28-200 with a “screwdriver” and without a stabilizer. So it made a lot of sense, because on the Z-mount 28-200 will not have autofocus. In addition, the presence of VR hints that we are waiting for a conditional budget Z5 without a built-in stabilizer, to which this lens will perfectly fit.

      • Eugene9000

        With this 28-200 Tamron 28-300 PZD wipes the floor.
        Sharper, lighter, with the best stub, two times cheaper.

      • Sergei

        On the F mount, as an analogue, there is not a very ancient 28-300 f / 3.5-5.6 VR with a built-in focus motor and a stabilizer.

        And against its background, 24-200 looks like a misunderstanding.

        • Oleg

          28-300 merges new 24-200. 24-200 is lighter and sharper. If that my 28-300 is calibrated in the corporate service, but still worse than 24-200.

      • Ivan

        I have a Z5, and it is with matrix stabilization. Perhaps the Z50 was meant?

  • A.N. Onim

    Is it supposed to be so dark on the long end for the sake of compact size?

    • Roman

      Exactly. And I am more and more inclined to believe that both the efficiency of the stub and the amount of energy that the stub eats also depends on the size of the lens.

  • B. R. P.

    What irony)

  • Oleg

    What's the difference, well, it would be f5.6 at the long end - the difference is from 6.3 to half a stop, it doesn't weather either by blur or by shutter speed, besides, it has a stub.

    • Eugene o

      Not half a stop, but a third.

  • @ Lex

    This is a travel zoom, so everything is fine)

  • Gennady meergus

    bought it yesterday. despite the fairly “budget” look, the sharpness at first glance (from one shot) is not worse than that of the 24-70.

    very similar in size and shape to 24-70, both at position 24 and at position 70.

    interestingly, the smaller the diameter for the filter (i.e. the front lens). for 24-70 - 72mm, for this (24-200) - 200mm.

    Something reminded of how long ago in DX-s the 18-200 was very similar to the “elongated” 18-70.

    • Arkady Shapoval

      Thanks for your feedback.

    • Hair dryer

      It would be interesting to listen to the review, because there are zero of them in Runet.
