Imagine this: you're strolling through a picturesque park, armed with your trusty camera and a heart full of artistic ambition. As you wander, you suddenly feel the weight of your camera bag... and no, it's not just the extra snacks you packed. It's the anticipation of something new, that something, dear reader, is Nikon's latest Nikkor Z DX 24mm f/1.7 lens! Suddenly, the burden of carrying heavy gear is lifted (well, mostly because the lens weighs just 135gm) and you feel like you could dance around the park, doing a joyous jig without breaking a sweat.
As per Nikon, the lens makes for the perfect daily companion for photographers and videographers, and you can easily keep it in your bag and bring it around for photo walks or travels. But don't be fooled by its small stature, because with its wide maximum aperture of f/1.7, you can capture bokeh-filled portraits. Along with the master of stills, the lens is also touted as a video maestro.
Nikon says you can create videos with smooth background blurs, making your subjects stand out like they're ready to win an Oscar. And hey, if you're a fan of the stealthy approach, the stepping motors in this lens will keep the focus shifts quite silent, ensuring that your filming experience is disturbance-free.
Plus, the brand also vouches for low-light photography. With its bright aperture, you can capture shots without cranking up the ISO to astronomical levels. We already told you the lens is just 135gm, attach it to a camera like the Z30, and you've got a combo that weighs around 540gm, probably less than your average watermelon. So, atleast one thing we know for sure whether you're going on a casual photo walk or a globetrotting adventure, this lens won't slow you down.
Priced at ₹25,495, the Nikon's latest Nikkor Z DX 24mm f/1.7 lens can be yours for the price of a fancy dinner or a few dozen unicorn-themed party hats, wink wink!
