Rounding off with the AF-S NIKKOR 28mm f/1.4E ED, landscapes and portraits are replicated in their true form, offering an angle of view similar to that of the human eye.
“With over 90 types of NIKKOR lenses to provide photographers great flexibility in choice of angle, range and type, these three new dedicated lenses are just as capable of capturing splendid scenes in their full natural brilliance. These lenses are set to enrich the image creation experience for the visionary photographer. Specifically, the AF-P DX NIKKOR 10-20mm f/4.5-5.6G VR introduces passionate DX-format photographers to the world of ultra-wide-angle and close-up shooting, with superior optical performance integrated into a compact and light form,” says Hiroki Yamaoka, General Manager of International Business Division Imaging Group, Nikon Singapore Pte Ltd. “Nikon continually seeks to enhance the photography experience for its users, and we have engineered these lenses to work seamlessly with our latest Nikon DSLR cameras.”
AF-P DX NIKKOR 10-20mm f/4.5-5.6G VR Primary Features
- Ultra-wide, ultra-clear: The AF-P DX NIKKOR 10-20mm f/4.5-5.6G VR, with a 10-20mm focal length range, transforms wide, sweeping scenes into extraordinary visuals. Three aspherical lens elements are packed into a significantly lighter and more compact form correcting distortion and other types of aberrations even at the periphery. NIKKOR’s very own built-in Vibration Reduction (VR) function delivers an effect equivalent to a shutter speed of 3.5 stops faster or tack-sharp images and improved on-the-go shooting.
Go up close for dramatic, creative perspectives with the lens’ close-up shooting capabilities, featuring a maximum reproduction ratio of 0.17x and a minimum focus distance of 0.22m or exceptional images. Featuring a stepping motor and a smooth focus ring that is easy to control, this new ultra-wide-angle DX-format lens delivers an improved seamless autofocus performance. Embracing remarkable visual narration, the AF-P DX NIKKOR 10-20mm f/4.5-5.6G VR presents photographers the perfect blend of technical innovation and performance.
AF-S Fisheye NIKKOR 8-15mm f/3.5-4.5E ED Primary Features
- Dare to be different: See faces and places with a dramatic view; 180° in circular and full-frame effects. The AF-S Fisheye NIKKOR 8-15mm f/3.5-4.5E ED, the first NIKKOR fisheye zoom lens, is a high-performing and versatile lens for creative and elaborate imagery. Edge-to-edge clarity is promised even at a minimum focus distance of 0.16m, which means that photographers can approach their subjects up-close without compromising on quality and detail at the periphery. The lens adopts two aspherical lens elements to effectively reduce sagittal coma flare, enhancing the accurate reproduction of point light sources located at the peripheries, even with the lens’ aperture set to the maximum. Scenic and expressive landscapes are reproduced with sharp and clear rendering, thanks to the inclusion of Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass elements that minimise colour fringing caused by lateral chromatic aberration. This is paired with Nano Crystal Coat which effectively reduces flare and ghosting, reproducing splendid sunsets easily with the click of a shutter.
Attachment and removal of the lens hood and cap can be done together or separately, enabling quick responses to capture the fleeting moments. Realising the form of a highly agile and durable body, and protected with a fluorine coat for easy maintenance, this new NIKKOR fisheye zoom lens is perfect for the artist looking to challenge visual boundaries.
AF-S NIKKOR 28mm f/1.4E ED Primary Features
- Beautiful, broad and brilliant perspectives: The new AF-S NIKKOR 28mm f/1.4E ED presents an ideal 28mm5 focal length for portraits and landscapes, with an angle of view similar to that of a human eye, allowing photographers to reproduce the world as they see it. Incredible optical performance comes to life with the incorporation of two ED glass elements which help to reduce colour fringing caused by axial chromatic aberration. In addition, this lens has three aspherical lens elements to effectively reduce sagittal coma flare, allowing for point light sources at the periphery to be reproduced as point images, even at the maximum aperture. These incorporations translate into high-resolution images stably across the entire frame at any aperture, and natural bokeh characteristics without double line bokeh.
An essential feature of the AF-S NIKKOR 28mm f/1.4E ED, the Nano Crystal Coat not only eliminates ghosting and flare, but acts as an anti-reflective mechanism, removing unnecessary flare from glass or reflective surfaces for defined images. Also equipped with a focus ring that rotates smoothly with just the right amount of resistance, the lens offers a convenient and smooth operation when focusing manually. Complete with a fluorine coat applied to the extreme front and rear lenses to repel dust, water and dirt, this lens is the capable companion that answers the imaging needs of professional photographers and advanced amateurs shooting in both FX- and DX-format.
