Nothing special here, just a stroll today around my neighborhood on a sunny Spring-like day with my new-to-me Z 24-70/f2.8 and Z7ii. SOOC jpegs. I have the f4 kit lens and it is wonderful. I see just a little more contrast, color "pop" and slightly improved sharpness across the frame with this f2.8 Z. Starting to believe that this is a special Nikkor. Not as heavy as my former D810 + AF-S 24-70/f2.8 combo, but after becoming used to the Z7/Z7ii + kit lens, I'm doing forearm curls again so that I can take this new beast on travels!

This thread needs more images! The 24-70 2.8S is, in my opinion, one of the best lenses for the Z system, and hands down the best zoom I've ever used. Sure, the 24-70 f/4S is really good, but the f/2.8 just delivers prime-like images with something extra that the f/4 lens doesn't.

Z 24-70/2.8S with Z7ii, Point Lobos State Reserve, along the Cypress Trail on a very windy day (15-20 mph gusts). NEFs pp'd with C1 Pro v21, no adjustments other than very minimal cropping.

Try the 70-200 2.8S.

One of these days I'll try out the Z 70-200. I prefer wide-angle for most of my work, so the 14-24 and 24-70 were my first 2.8 Z zooms (and my Tamron 70-200 G2 does fine for the few times I need it).

One more from the 24-70:

Some 24-70 f2.8S samples for those interested in this lens. For me, the 24-70 f2.8S lens is basically a bag of primes, it is that good.
