The Nikon Z 14-24mm F2.8 S brings its famed DSLR-era lens to its mirrorless format, in a more compact lightweight formula with an option for (albeit very large 112mm) filters. It's sharp wide open at all focal lengths, and any corner softness is dealt with by stopping down a couple of stops. Autofocus is swift and silent, and aberrations are very well controlled, with only busy bokeh being our primary concern with this lens, optically.
Good for: Landscape photographers and videographers who'll utilize the convenient, though large, filter thread for circular polarizer and neutral density filters. Anyone looking for sharp, wide-angle optics.
Not so good for: Portrait photographers looking for the smoothest bokeh; bright-edged out-of-focus highlights can lead to busier blurred backgrounds.
