First samples: Nikon’s new Z 14-30mm F4 is shaping up nicely

Photographer Jimmy McIntyre has been working with Nikon, shooting a pre-production sample of the new Z 14-30mm F4 S lens. This compact wideangle zoom weighs just 485g (17oz) and supports screw-in (82mm) filters, making this dust and moisture-sealed lens it a potentially useful addition to Z shooters' kitbags when it becomes available later this year.

Jimmy took these photos using a Nikon Z7 and at Nikon's request, we're only showing out-of-the-camera JPEGs. Watch out for more samples from a production lens as soon as we can get our hands on one.
