With the release of the Nikon Z5 (opens in new tab), Nikon has also officially released an updated Nikon Z lens roadmap (opens in new tab) with details of all of the Z lenses currently released and planned. On there is the Nikon Z 14-24mm f/2.8 S lens – and it looks as if it's going to appear before the end of this year.
With the Nikon Z 24-70mm f/2.8 (opens in new tab) having been out for over a year, and the Nikon Z 70-200mm f/2.8 S (opens in new tab) due to be officially released by late August, the Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8 S lens will be the final piece of the holy trinity puzzle that photographers have been waiting for. Being able to access a focal range from 14mm to 200mm, all at a consistent aperture of f/2.8, is vitally important to many photographers – particularly those who shoot wedding and events.

Having all three of this holy trinity of lenses out will be definite boost to the Nikon Z lens line-up – and will help tempt wavering DSLR shooters over to the mirrorless side.

Other than the confirmation that we'll see this lens before the end of the year, there's precious little information on the Nikon Z 14-24mm f/2.8 at present. However, as soon as we hear more details we'll update this story accordingly.
