AFAIK it’s not available in Europe. Same with the 100-400. Waiting from day one.


I looked for one in December, in the UK. Had it in my hands two days later

For those that have been lucky enough to use this lens for some time now, do you feel its worth it over the 24-200, which obviously has more reach but no constant aperture?

The copy of the 24-200 I tested on Z7 was not as good as I need on edges and corners even stopped down so I returned it. The Z 24-120 I've been shooting for three months is excellent and very consistent across the frame and zoom range. Build and handling feels better than what I recall from the 24-200.

Yet a other lens to consider. I'm new to Nikon and the Z 100-400 and Z 24-120 just were not on my radar when I pre-ordered my Z9. Also that came to me a lot sooner than I tough based on what I was told. My pre-order for that was more timely than I thought and I am not a NPS member. Have placed orders for both but they are on back order. In the mean time I have been very fortunate to find four great used Z/S lenses but for me none of those would go away if and when these two missing pieces show up. One lesson I've learned is to not read forum threads that @RoamiongScott is contributing too. It just ends up costing me money. Have enjoyed seeing the images in this thread. For me a lenses like the 24-120 and 100-400 are the two lens combination I like for hiking. The faster f/2.8 trinity I use for events and sports.

Sorry about your wallet!

Like you say, the 24-120 and 100-400 are probably the ultimate hiking/landscape duo. They won’t replace a 105, fast 35 or 85; or macro (usually…although the latter with 1.4x has for me). Horses for courses. That said, portraits at 120/4 are “good enough” for my uses, so I rarely find myself wanting other glass.

For landscape, a 14-30, 24-120 and 58/1.4 are what's in my lightweight goto bag. The 70-200 with both converters is in the car and the rest of the gear goes in that backpack if I think I'll need it.

As re the 24-120 v 24-200, I personally think the 24-200 is quite remarkable optically, at least my copy is. However for most "walk-around" travel or street shooting I do, I occasionally appreciate the faster and usable f4 of the 24-120. Unfortunately, at the same time I also occasionally miss the 150-200 range of the 24-200. It's a good argument for owning both, but the reality is for me is the wrong one will always be the one I chose to mount that day !

I find the focal range is so versatile for a variety of landscape compositions. #’s 1, 2, 6, 7, 8 from this current FM post are all the Z 24-120: https://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/1751016

I'm not really a cat person, but my brother-in-law & sister-in-law have a house full (all rescues). We just visited, so I took the opportunity to engage them. Now I understand the phrase "like herding cats". Lol!

I too am very much enjoying this lens. Optimised for the edge to edge sharpness at the wide end and central sharpness at all focal lengths. Nice fall-off at longer focal lengths and very well corrected for aberrations. This really is an excellent all-purpose zoom.

Some of my youngest home on leave for Easter and one of my old mate Douglas, relaxing.

Continue to wait for my copy but since I ordered from B&H have no idea how long it will take to get. That is OK since I’ve already bought six Nikkor lenses since my Z9 showed up. This and the Z100-400 are the ones still on order. Since this will be used for hiking I’ve dencider I need to get a lighter body as well since I’m unlikely to take the Z9 out for hiking. I bought the Z9 for BIF and Wildlife.
Now need to sell off other gear like the R5 and RF lenses if I plan to keep this very nice Nikon setup. Plan to keep the Sony gear for now.

Got a text that this lens is available at Pro Photo Supply. Don't know how long it will last or if other people were notified.

You should make a dedicated thread for this! Hopefully someone here can snatch one.
