The Nikon NIKKOR Z 24-120mm ƒ/4 S has a zoom range from a wide-angle 24mm to a telephoto 120mm. Which is pretty straightforward. But what does that look like in practice? Is it enough for what you want? Can you get away with this lens in place of several others?

That’s where this simple post comes in: to provide some visual examples of what the zoom range looks like in practice. I’ve posted a detailed hands-on review as well as some sample images separately, but here, it’s all about the zoom range.

This lens is designed primarily for Nikon full-frame mirrorless cameras. (It won’t work on Nikon DSLRs—there’s no reverse version of the FTZ adapter that lets you put Z-mount lenses on F-mount DSLR bodies.) It will also work on Nikon Z DX cameras with cropped sensors. Those have a crop ratio of close to 1.5, in which case the focal length becomes the equivalent of what a 36mm to 180mm zoom would be.

So here are some practical examples of the zoom range of the Nikon Z 24-120mm ƒ/4 S. These were shot on a Nikon Z8 (full-frame).

The 24-120mm carries the S indicator, which means it’s in Nikon’s premium range of lenses. And it’s often included as a kit lens with some of the Nikon Z full-frame bodies, such as the Nikon Z8. And while not cheap, it is priced quite reasonably as an all-purpose and versatile carry-around lens, with an MSRP of $1099.
