Widen your creative vision with the fast new AF-S NIKKOR 24mm f/1.8G ED prime lens (04.08.2015)
Amsterdam, The Netherlands, 4th August 2015 Nikon extends its versatile f/1.8 line-up of prime lenses with the all-new AF-S NIKKOR 24mm f/1.8G ED. Lighter and more compact than its professional brother, this fast FX-format lens easily captures dynamic, immersive images.
Zurab Kiknadze, Product Manager, Lenses, Accessories & Software, Nikon Europe, says: “Wide-angle lenses come into their own when you want to exaggerate perspectives and 24mm has always been a popular focal length for photographers looking for a creative edge. Perfectly filling the gap between Nikon’s recently launched 20mm and 28mm lenses, the new 24mm makes Nikon’s f1.8 line-up so much more complete. This is a great lens with which to capture dynamic and immersive images that draw the viewer in. It offers superb low-light performance for ambient scenes, and beautiful out of focus rendition for more atmospheric shots. And if you’re a movie shooter who wants footage with a cinematic feel, this versatile lens will certainly deliver.”
Dynamic, immersive images
Dramatic architecture. Impressive landscapes. Bold streetscapes. Spacious interiors. To capture shots like these, the lens has to be wide and it has to be fast. An excellent match for high-resolution D-SLRs, the new 24mm f/1.8G from Nikon delivers exceptional still images and video. The fast f/1.8 aperture offers shallow depth of field, smooth bokeh, clear low-light images, and a bright viewfinder image. The close focus distance of just0.23 m offers additional versatility and creative freedom. The compact and lightweight design makes this ultra-wide-angle a great travel companion.
Superior edge-to-edge performance
The new NIKKOR 24mm yields superb clarity and contrast throughout the frame. The optical construction includes 12 elements in nine groups. Two extra-low-dispersion (ED) glass elements, two aspherical lens elements, and Nikon’s Nano Crystal Coat ensure crisp, brilliant images. Distortion is well controlled, as are any potential flaws that typically occur at the periphery of a wide-angle lens, such as light fall-off or loss of sharpness.
Ultra-wide FX. Classic DX
Offering a DX-format focal length equivalent of 36mm, this new lens is interesting for DX photographers too. Now DX users can take advantage of high-quality FX glass that comes close to a classic 35mm focal length when used on a DX camera. The traditional 35mm focal length creates timeless, compelling images. It’s a firm favourite amongst photographers who want to capture images with a classic perspective. In addition to the focal length advantage, the tough but lightweight construction of this new FX lens ensures it balances well on a DX body too.
The AF-S NIKKOR 24mm f/1.8G ED is supplied with a bayonet lens hood and a soft lens pouch.
