The ultra-wide zoom. A travel and landscape photographers' go-to lens for establishing a sense of place and pushing perspective. Capable of scenic photography that's consistently sharp throughout the entire frame. Video so clean and smooth it rivals real life and elevates the look and feel of camera movement. And for the first time in a full-frame ultra-wide lens, the creative and practical flexibility of attachable filters. The possibilities are as wide-reaching as the 14-30mm field of view. This is a lens that embodies the spirit of Z.

Breakthrough performance and capabilities

A compact 14 to 30mm zoom range with a fixed f/4 aperture and outstanding image quality. Experience edge-to-edge sharpness even when shooting wide open. Shoot stills or video in near-silence. This is an essential lens for travel, adventure, events, video and everything in between.

Superior optical performance

Impressive aberration correction—virtually zero flare, ghosting, coma or chromatic, spherical and axial aberration, even at the far edges of the frame. Plus dirt, dust and water-repelling safeguards.

A small lens for big ideas

Smoothly go from an ultra-wide 14mm view to a more natural perspective of 30mm. Capture subjects less than a foot away with fully-immersive backgrounds and expansive vistas with detail and sharpness from corner to far-reaching corner. The NIKKOR Z 14-30mm f/4 S is perfect for adding depth and drama to stills and video and its outstanding portability makes it an ideal partner for compact Z series cameras.

Fixed f/4 aperture

The large-diameter Z Mount gathers more light, especially at the frame edges. Shoot wide open while maintaining high image quality across the entire zoom range without affecting exposure. The 14-30mm f/4 exemplifies what's possible with NIKKOR Z lenses.

Space-saving design

A retractable lens mechanism collapses the lens down to a mere 3.5 inches and locks it in place for safe and minimal packing.

Smooth, quiet autofocus

Nikon’s Stepping Motor (STM) provides smooth, fast and quiet autofocusing. Where camera noise is an issue—weddings, ceremonies and in video production—STM is a silent partner.

World’s first 14mm filter-attachable lens

The NIKKOR Z 14-30mm f/4 S’s front lens element is nearly flat, making it the first filter-attachable 14mm full frame NIKKOR lens. This advancement in optical design makes it possible to add an 82mm circular polarizer to dramatically reduce reflections for the purpose of enhancing colors and increasing contrast. Add a neutral-density filter to reduce light intensity and decrease shutter speed—perfect for emphasizing motion blur or for video applications where large apertures need to be used in daylight.

An essential video lens

Create beautifully detailed establishing shots that draw the viewer in. Focus as close as approx. 11 inches for story-telling context in wide, tight interiors. This is an indispensable lens with an essential angle of view for serious videographers and filmmakers. The NIKKOR Z 14-30mm f/4 S's small, agile design feels as at home in a hand as it does in a rig. Either way, Z's advanced 5-axis VR and additional electronic VR image stabilization effectively eliminate unwanted camera shake and vibration. The new quiet stepping motor ensures smooth, clean focusing; focus breathing has been virtually eliminated for a consistent view as you zoom in or out.

  • Customizable Control Ring:  Can be used for manual focusing (default), aperture control (great for iris transitions during video recording) or exposure compensation.
  • Dust and Drip Resistant: Extensively sealed to keep dust and moisture out, especially around all moving parts of the lens barrel, for worry-free durability.
  • Dual Detect 5 Axis VR: Uses the Z cameras' superior in-camera image stabilization system for up to 5 stops of pitch, roll, yaw, X and Y shake correction. Additional electronic VR (e-VR) during video capture.
  • Stepping Motor: NIKKOR Z lenses use a stepping motor for fast, accurate, smooth, quiet autofocus with reduced wobbling. This quiet drive system makes the lenses ideal for use when shooting video.
  • ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) Glass: An optical glass developed by Nikon that is used with normal optical glass in telephoto lenses to obtain optimum correction of chromatic aberrations.
  • Aspherical Lens: A lens with a curved, non-spherical surface. Used to reduce aberrations and enable a more compact lens size. Aspherical lenses minimize coma and other types of lens aberrations, even when used at the widest aperture. They are particularly useful in correcting distortion in wide-angle lenses and help contribute to a lighter, more compact design by reducing the number of standard (spherical) elements necessary. Aspherical lens elements correct these distortions by continuously changing the refractive index from the centre of the lens.
  • Nano Crystal Coat: An anti-reflective coating developed by Nikon that virtually eliminates internal lens element reflections across a wide range of wavelengths. Nano Crystal Coat solves ghost effects caused by red light and effectively reduces ghost and flare caused by light entering the lens diagonally.
  • Electromagnetic Diaphragm Mechanism: An electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism in the lens barrel provides highly accurate electronic diaphragm or aperture blade control when using auto exposure during continuous shooting. With conventional D/G type lenses, the diaphragm blades are operated by mechanical linkage levers.
  • IF Lens: A NIKKOR lens in which only the internal lens group shifts during focusing. Thus, IF NIKKORS do not change in size during AF operation, allowing for compact, lightweight lenses capable of closer focusing distances. These lenses will be designated with the abbreviation IF on the lens barrel.
  • Fluorine Coat: Photographers need gear that can withstand the elements. Nikon’s fluorine coat effectively repels dust, water droplets, grease or dirt, ensuring easy removal even when they adhere to the lens surface. Nikon’s fluorine coat endures a high frequency of lens surface wiping and its anti-reflective effect also contributes to the capture of clear images.
  • Super Integrated Coating: Nikon Super Integrated Coating is Nikon's term for its multilayer coating of the optical elements in NIKKOR lenses.

Great image quality, practically silent autofocus and a relatively compact design make this a winning option for Z-series users. The f/4 maximum aperture may rule it out for some, but a fine balance has been struck for those who need something as powerful as it is practical.

Photography BLOG

There’s a huge amount to like about the Nikon Z 14-30mm f/4 S lens, and we can see it being extremely popular with Nikon Z owners. The fact that the comparable lenses from the existing Nikon F mount line-up are so much larger makes it even more appealing - saving users from having to use a huge and...

LensTip.com

Our overall assessment is positive because the Nikkor Z 14–30 mm f/4 S performs exactly as it should – in the 14-22 mm focal lenghts range you are able to take photographs which are sharp across the frame.

We review Nikon's ultra-wide-angle zoom for Z-mount cameras

Steve's Digicams

Click HERE to view our NIKKOR Z 14-30mm F/4 S Sample Image Gallery! The Nikkor Z 14-30mm F/4 S is a fantastic lens, period. It may have its shortcomings -- softening at the corners, and signs of ghosting, flare and vignetting-- but let’s face it, there’s no such thing as a perfect lens.

PC Magazine

The Nikon Nikkor Z 14-30mm f/4 S lens captures epic wide-angle views with crisp details and minimal distortion.

Camera Labs

The Nikon Z 14-30mm f4.0 S is a compact ultra-wide angle zoom designed for Nikon’s full-frame Z-series mirrorless cameras. Like the standard f4.0 Z zoom, the Z 14-30mm f4.0 S employs a retracting mechanism to reduce its size when not in use and also features weather-sealing.

Photography Life

For reasons that this review hopefully makes clear, the Nikon Z 14-30mm f/4 S lens is one of the more controversial Z lenses to date. At its best, it’s excellent – somehow cramming a filter thread, a class-leading zoom range, and top-of-the-line performance into a seriously portable package.

Camera Jabber

If you’ve used the AF-S Nikkor 14-24mm f/2.8G ED, the Nikon Z 14-30mm f/4 S seems like a baby of a lens in comparison. However, it has a greater zoom range and it’s easier to use with filters. Its collapsible design also makes it a little more portable than it might otherwise be.

Find this particularly impressive in the detail that it gives to closer features when taking pictures of the sweeping bays and landscapes - close to home at the moment.

So far I have only tried it out inside the house. I am quite happy with it and look forward to further opportunities to try it out after I am allowed out.

Great lens for real estate, architectural, landscape, cityscape, art, and other photography genres. I love this lens, and I use it exclusively for my real estate shoots, and architectural shoots. Coupled with my Z 6, it is fast enough to provide great coverage even in low light.

B&H Photo

The 14-30 f4 is noticeably smaller and lighter than many other full frame ultra wide zooms and it doesnt sacrifice image quality to get there. I previously used a 16-35 lens because it had filter threads but there were times when I wanted to go a little bit wider and the Nikon 14-30 f4 gives me the...

I'm new to photography I previously owned a D 750 and decided to trade it in for Z6.I have several Z lens now but this is far my favorite! I honestly can't believe that I'm taking these photos.The sharpness and the ultra wide makes it so fun to use. I never want to take this lens off the camera.

B&H Photo

Have only used it one day but my copy does not seem to have a severe vignette issue. Only very slightly, I think it is quite normal. May be my copy but I used it on my Z6. Colour, image quality, is as good or better than my older 12-24 F2.8, or any other good quality wide-angle lens.

This lens alone makes it work switching to the Z platform. Compared to other super-wide lenses this one is very small and lightweight. Ideal for landscapes. Accepts filters. Yes, it has a fair amount of distortion at the wide end. But for most of my landscape work I disable the automatic correction.

Superb lens quality. A great lightweight addition to my Z7. Fantastic quality images with a great field of view
