We knew these lenses were coming as they had been published in Nikon’s Z lens roadmap.
NIKKOR Z 20mm f/1.8 S
The new 20mm is part of the S line of lenses, with a fast f/1.8 aperture, it is now the widest prime lens.
It features an advanced focusing system for fast, silent and accurate autofocus and a programmable control ring.
This looks like a nice lens for gimbal work as it weighs just 1.11 lb / 505 g. The lens has a 77mm front filter diameter and it has a minimum focus distance of 7.87″ / 20 cm.
The NIKKOR Z 20mm f/1.8 S retails for $1,046.95 USD and it will be available at the end of March.
NIKKOR Z 24-200 f/4-6.3 VR
The NIKKOR Z 24-200mm f/4-6.3 VR from Nikon is an all-in-one 8.3x zoom covering wide-angle to telephoto focal lengths.
It also features Vibration Reduction image stabilization, which minimizes the appearance of camera shake by up to 5 stops. A stepping motor is said to provide quick, quiet, and precise autofocus performance along with full-time manual focus override to suit both stills and video applications. Also, a programmable control ring can be set for intuitive adjustment over a variety of camera and exposure settings.
This looks like a good multi-purpose lens to use for those situations where coverage and speed are the priority.
