Conclusion from DPReview:

The Nikon Z 24-70mm F2.8 S is an all-rounder fast zoom for Nikon’s mirrorless system. With a versatile focal length range and a fast aperture for low light photography and blurry backgrounds, this lens provides sharp imagery with smooth bokeh and without distracting color fringing from chromatic aberrations. Autofocus isn’t as speedy as its peers, and slightly defocused subjects can be a bit busy, but the overall performance can’t be argued with.

Good for

Landscape, portrait, wedding, low light, travel photographers

Not so good for

Videographers looking for linear focus response, or action and candid photographers looking for the fastest autofocus performance
