The ideal companion lens for an FX shooter, the 24-120mm focal length of the AF-S NIKKOR 24-120mm f/4G ED VR lens gives you a range from wide to mid-telephoto lens, perfect for group photos, close up portraits and everything in between. No need to carry a bag full of lenses when you have everything you’ll need in one convenient lens. In fact, the 24-120mm is often the lens paired with Nikon FX, full frame DSLR cameras as a kit lens because of its zoom range coverage.
Traveling light and being able to shoot quickly with a lens always on your camera are benefits that can’t be beat. The constant f/4 aperture means no matter where you are in the zoom range, the lens will let in lots of light; whether you’re at the wide end of the zoom range at 24mm or zoomed in all the way, at 120mm, the lens opens up to f/4.
The 24mm focal length is also ideal for landscapes, architecture, street photography, weddings and more, giving you the wide field of view necessary for these images. It lets you get the wide shot, then zoom in for a closer view. When photographing portraits, having a zoom lens on your camera lets you quickly and smoothly change up the composition while being able to stay in a relatively close distance to your subject. For event photography it allows you to capture all the various images you’ll encounter, from small to large groups, demonstrations by a speaker or a crowd of partygoers on the dance floor.
For even extra versatility, shooting the 24-120mm on an FX camera and you want a little extra reach—put the camera into DX Crop mode and you get a similar field of view of a 36-180mm lens—as if you had used the lens on a DX body.
Shooting stills or video, the 24-120mm zoom range has got you covered. Great focal length range makes this a favorite for shooting video on a DSLR as well as stills. The lens is fast enough for low light shooting with a coverage range that would suffice as being able to handle wide, standard and short telephoto.
The constant f/4 maximum aperture maintains exposure settings throughout the entire zoom range, a bonus when shooting video. And with its closest focusing at 1.5 feet, you can get pretty close to your subject.
With the addition of the Nikon Z series mirrorless full frame cameras, you can also add the 24-120 to the optional Mount Adapter FTZ—now that’s versatility!
If you’re looking for a workhorse of a lens with an all-purpose focal length, that can capture stunning image quality through the entire zoom range, the AF-S NIKKOR 24-120mm f/4G ED VR is a lens you’ll never want to be without.
