The Nikon AF-S 20mm f/1.8 ED Lens is Nikon's fastest ultra-wide-angle lens yet. A compact, lightweight FX-format lens that combines ultra-wide perspective of a 20mm focal length, the low-light capabilities and shallow depth of field of an f/1.8 maximum aperture and the superb optical characteristics of an advanced NIKKOR prime lens. This lens delivers a 20mm, 94° angle of view (30mm, 70° equivalent on DX-format cameras) that is ideal for stills or motion capture. With it's 7.8-inch close focus capability, you can work in tight spaces or get close to your subject to accentuate your focal point. From a distance, the AF-S NIKKOR 20mm f/1.8 ED lets you get wide, expansive vistas in the frame. Videographers will love using their Nikon DSLR and this compact, lightweight lens for establishing shots, first-person point-of-view sequences and B-Roll footage.
Aspherical (AS) lens element and Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass elements with Nano Crystal Coat (N) combat sagittal flare and chromatic aberration for superb, sharp rendering across the entire frame. Nikon's innovative Silent Wave Motor (SWM) uses ultrasonic waves for fast, accurate near quiet autofocusing as close as 7.8-inches from your subject.
