Nikon offers cheap ultrawide-angle lens for entry dSLRs


The new AF-P DX 10-20mm f/4.5-5.6G VR, AF-S Fisheye 8-15mm f/3.5-4.5E ED and AF-S 28mm f/1.4E ED Nikkor lenses that will be released next month.

This compact and lightweight wide-angle lens gives a focal length equivalent to 15-30mm on a APS-C format Nikon DSLR, allowing you to shoot wide and expansive vistas, as well as exaggerate perspectives easily. Additionally, it utilizes Nikon's Pulse Motor technology for super-fast and whisper quiet AF operation- which is especially useful when recording video.

Created to be compact and lightweight, the Nikon AF-P DX 10-20mm f/3.5-5.6G VR offers an equivalent focal length of 15-30mm. The Nikon AF-S Fisheye Nikkor 8-15mm f/3.5-4.5E ED is available now for a suggested retail price of $1249.95. United Kingdom and Australian pricing is still to be confirmed.

The new lens design provides a creative circular 180-degree vertical / horizontal angle of view on full frame cameras, and zooms to a non-circular fisheye view (180-degree diagonal angle of view) on the long end of the focal range. The advanced optical construction of the AF-S FISHEYE NIKKOR 8-15mm lens ensures there's no sacrificing quality for versatility.

Constructed from magnesium alloy, the lens also features three ED glass elements, 2 aspherical elements and a Nano Crystal coating to reduce ghosting and flare. Further, the use of Nano Crystal Coat enables capture of clear images in which ghost and flare are effectively suppressed despite the fact that the wide angles supported by the lens often mean that the sun is included in the frame.

Compatible with high-resolution Nikon digital SLR cameras boasting the latest optical designs, the AF-S Fisheye NIKKOR 8-15mm f/3.5-4.5E ED offers stable and superior image quality from maximum aperture throughout the zoom range, clearly and sharply rendering the entire image area, even when the aperture is stopped down.

As a single fisheye lens that supports two fisheye effects, circular and full-frame fisheye, the AF-S Fisheye NIKKOR 8-15mm f/3.5-4.5E ED helps to increase users mobility and agility.

Inside it offers a nine-blade aperture diaphragm and a design that incorporates 14 elements in 11 groups, as well as three aspherical elements and two ED glass elements that Nikon says help to reduce chromatic aberrations. Boasting a weather-sealed body made of magenesium alloy, the Nikon AF-S 28mm f/1.4E ED isn't cheap, with a price tag of $1,999.95.

Finally, Nikon has also unveiled a new ultra wide-angle zoom for DX-format cameras, the Nikon AF-P DX 10-20mm f/3.5-5.6G VR.
