Nikon NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/4 S Aperture Series at 24mm: Snowstorm Meltwater Pond View to Mt Conness Eastern Ridge

See my Sony mirrorless wishlist and Nikon mirrorless wishlist and Canon mirrorless wishlist.

The series assesses performance of the Nikon NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/4 S at 24mm on a far distance scene but unlike Summit View at Dusk Over Upper Conness Lake, it includes an excellent near-to-far foreground to assess sharpness taking account of field curvature and focus shift and actual lens performance. Unfortunately, it concurs with the findings in that series, but also yields an important finding as to the cause.

A 3rd series at 24mm confirms the results with the other two:

Nikon NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/4 S Aperture Series at 24mm: Snowstorm Meltwater Pond

Both include actual pixels crops and up to full resolution images from f/4 through f/11.

Below, these small ponds are dry by July or so unless rain or snow fill them. The meltwater from a snowstorm 3 days prior had filled all the ponds in this area.
