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 it’s 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 Nikon’s 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.
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). Nikon’s 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.
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, it’s 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.
