Nikon 20mm f/1.8G ED AF-S Nikkor

Lens Reviews / Nikon Lenses i Lab tested

(From Nikon lens literature) The AF-S NIKKOR 20mm ƒ/1.8G ED is the latest addition to Nikon's popular ƒ/1.8 series of FX-format lenses, which provide enthusiast photographers with fast, quality optics at an attractive price. This is Nikon's first ultra wide angle lens with an ƒ/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 Nikon's exclusive Nano Crystal Coat to reduce instances of ghost and flare.

The AF-S NIKKOR 20mm ƒ/1.8G ED will be available in late September 2014 for an SRP of US$799.95.
