Nikon’s most widely used pro zoom, the 24-70mm, has had a revamp. The AF-S Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8E ED VR sells for £1849.99 and is available from 27 August. Its VR systemoffers a four EV benefit and its new optical construction features an aspherical ED glass element developed specially to combat both chromatic aberrations and coma.
A long telezoom lens has joined the line-up too. The AF-S Nikkor 200-500mm f/5.6E ED VR, priced at £1179.99, puts in a high spec performance thanks to its 19 elements in 12 groups, with three ED glass elements, and boasts Sport VR for perfect panning. Completing the trio is the AF-S Nikkor 24mm f/1.8G ED, offering
a super-close focus distance of just 0.23m and a travel-friendly size. Its 12 elements in nine groups design includes two extra-low dispersion elements and two aspherical elements. It’ll set you back £629.99. Release dates for the 200-500mm and 24mm are yet to be confirmed.
