Nikon just announced three new wide-angle lenses – one DX lens and two FX lenses.
The Nikon AF-P 10-20mm f/4.5-5.6G VR lens offers 3.5 stops of vibration reduction and features Nikon’s pulse motor for silent AF operation when shooting video. The crop factor on Nikon DX-format cameras means you get a very wide 15-30mm equivalent (full frame) zoom range at a very reasonable price of $309.95. This new DX lens will ship in late June and is available for pre-order now. Check it out here at B&H Photo.
The new FX lenses are professional grade lenses sporting Nikon’s signature Gold Ring. The new 8-15mm lens is a circular fisheye lens with a 180° angle of view. It directly competes with Canon’s EF 8-15mm f/4L lens (a lens I love, by the way). The Nikon 8-15mm Fisheye is also priced in direct competition with Canon at $1249.95 and is available now. Check it out here at B&H Photo.
The new Nikon AF-S 28mm f/1.4E ED lens features a rounded nine blade diaphragm for smooth bokeh. The fast f/1.4 max aperture gives is incredible flexibility with that wide angle of view for a variety of shooting situations. It also rounds out Nikon’s f/1.4 primes nicely alongside the AF-S 24mm f/1.4G ED, AF-S 35mm f/1.4G, AF-S 58mm f/1.4G, AF-S 85mm f/1.4G and AF-S 105mm f/1.4E ED.
The Nikon AF-S 28mm f/1.4E ED lens retails for $1999.95 and will ship in late June. You can pre-order it now here at B&H Photo.
