Wide. Ultra wide. Fisheye. Three new NIKKOR lenses open up new possibilities
Nikon broadens its portfolio of lenses with the first ever NIKKOR FX fisheye zoom lens, a fast FX 28 mm prime lens, and an ultra-wide DX zoom lens. For photographers who want to expand space and exaggerate perspectives, these three lenses open up intriguing possibilities.
Event, wedding, portrait, travel, and landscape photographers gain more freedom to tell their stories with the new AF-S NIKKOR 28mm f/1.4E ED. As the latest addition to Nikon’s acclaimed f/1.4 NIKKOR line-up, this lens delivers exceptional aesthetic control in any light. Photographers who want to capture extreme angles can move from a true circular perspective to a frame-filling image with Nikon’s first fisheye zoom. The advanced optical construction of the AF-S FISHEYE NIKKOR 8–15mm lens ensures there’s no sacrificing quality for versatility. DX shooters ready to explore dramatic perspectives will appreciate the new AF-P DX NIKKOR 10–20mm VR zoom lens. Easy to use and built to travel, this lightweight wide-angle zoom offers superb image quality and great value for money. It’s the perfect companion to Nikon’s agile, high-resolution DX-format DSLRs.
