London, UK, 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 brother, this fast FX-format lens easily captures dynamic, immersive images.

Edward Allinson, Junior Product Manager for Lenses & Accessories at Nikon UK says: “The 24mm lens has always been a popular model when it comes to exaggerating perspectives and capturing imaginative images; this new lens is a great addition to Nikon’s f/1.8 line-up and gives the wide-angle series a definitive edge. It offers exceptional image quality and low-light performance, ensuring photographers can capture beautiful scenes and atmospheric shots. Not only this, movie shooters who want to create a cinematic feel can achieve this and deliver excellent video. The compact and lightweight design also makes it an ideal travel companion, and ensures that it is built to last.”

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 just 0.23 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.
