Fast Ultra Wide-Angle Lens for FX Cameras

The AF-S NIKKOR 20mm f/1.8G ED is the latest addition to Nikonís popular f/1.8 series of FX-format lenses, which provide enthusiast photographers with fast, quality optics at an attractive price. This is Nikonís first ultra wide angle lens with an f/1.8 aperture, allowing users to shoot in challenging light and create images with a pleasing separation between subject and background. With a 94-degree angle of view (FX), the lens is ideal for architecture, interiors, wide-angle landscape and creative group portraits. When paired with the compact D750, this lens is also a great solution for video applications that call for shooting in cramped quarters. This AF-S lens provides whisper quiet and fast autofocus capability, an internal focus design, and features Nikonís exclusive Nano Crystal Coat to reduce instances of ghost and flare.

Simon Iddon, Group Product Manager (D-SLR Lenses and Accessories), Nikon UK, says: ďThe Nikon 20mm f2.8D was first introduced 20 years ago and was a popular lens with creative photography enthusiasts. Today, Nikon introduces the 20mm f1.8G ED lens, a new version of the prime lens that has been brought up to date with a brighter aperture, snappier autofocus and improved optical performance as well as Nikonís renowned Nano Crystal Coat and enhanced ergonomics. Photographers will enjoy the creative value and new perspectives that comes with the 20mm f1.8 lens.Ē

Immersive perspective

The new NIKKOR 20mm f/1.8 delivers superb performance in a broad range of situations. Compact and versatile, this lens is well suited to interiors, street reportage, broad landscapes, and even underwater photography, and itís a great choice for filming immersive movie scenes. Photographers who want to draw the viewer in, or who want the flexibility to shoot in confined spaces, can take full advantage of the 20 mm focal length and the ultra-wide-angle of view to create arresting images. The fast f/1.8 maximum aperture and superb light gathering capability of this lens enable distinctive subject/background separation and beautifully smooth bokeh. Photographers get the flexibility to shoot with faster shutter speeds and attain clear shots in low light, in addition to benefitting from a brighter viewfinder image. Autofocus is smooth, quiet, and swift, thanks to Nikonís Silent Wave Motor (SWM), and the minimum focus distance is 0.2 m, making it easy to get in close and have subjects fill the frame.

High-resolution images

Engineered to accommodate the high-resolution demands of modern sensors, the new NIKKOR 20mm f/1.8 enables stunning photos and HD videos. The modern optical design features 13 elements in 11 groups, including two Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass elements and two aspherical lens elements (AS). Nikonís ED glass ensures sharpness and contrast even at larger apertures, and the AS elements ensure distortion is exceptionally well controlled for such a wide focal length. Nano Crystal Coat minimises ghosting and flare.

Stress-free portability

Lightweight, compact, and fast, this lens is ideal for photographers ready to get close and capture dynamic images from a variety of locations. Weighing in at just 355g, itís incredibly portable and extremely comfortable to use handheld. Optimised for FX-format sensors, the AF-S NIKKOR 20mm f/1.8G ED offers a wide 30 mm angle of view when used with a DX-format D-SLR.

The AF-S NIKKOR 20mm f/1.8G ED comes with the CL-1015 Flexible Lens Pouch and the HB-72 Lens Hood.
