Today, Nikon introduced the latest addition their Nikkor Z line-up: The new Nikkor Z 14-30mm F4 S will add considerable wide-angle reach to the full-frame cameras Z6 and Z7. At only 500g (1.1lbs.) the lens is fairly light and comes with a 82mm filter thread because Nikon managed to keep the front lens flat. Previous ultra-WA designs have bulging front lenses and usually resort to screw-in filters at the back or filter drawers.
The new lens uses fourteen lenses in twelve groups; four elements are from ED glass, four more are aspheric. Nano Crystal Coat coating is supposed to suppress flares and ghosting. Like the existing lenses, the WA zoom employs a stepper motor for quick and near silent focussing. The click-less control ring on the lens is for manual focussing but can also be configured to set the aperture or exposure compensation.
The lens itself is not stabilized but plays nicely with both cameras’ built-in five axes stabilizer.
The 14-30mm F4 will be available in mid April, the MSRP will be around $1.300 in the US.
Further five lenses are planned for the Z Mount this year, as shown in the roadmap for 2019:

Camera Creativ can recommend these digital cameras from personal experience. They all provide the best value in their respective category.
Large 1" sensor and 10x Leica lens make the ZS100 / TZ101 the perfect travel zoom.
4K Video, panos and a 60x zoom, combined with Pannys Post Focus in a portable package.
Grading up from a smartphone or compact? Then the Rebel T6 / 1300D might be for you.
APS-C DSLR for discriminating amateurs. With articulated screen and dedicated microphone port.
Best-selling mirrorless ILC with APS-C sized sensor and speedy AF. Currently at bargain prices.
APS-C ILC with 4K video, sensible feature set and nice EVF. Vast selection of lenses via adapter.
First gen. RX100 with 4x Zeiss lens. Still our standing recommendation, especially when on offer.
Posh compact with 1" sensor and very bright 4x zoom. Pocketable and with good manual controls.
Best feature and sensor set in any outdoor camera bar none, combined with clever software.
New in 2018 with 4K 60p support and improved stabilizer. Still the mother of all action cams.
