Whether you’re looking to capture expansive landscapes, experiment with new perspectives, or simply express your creativity, the AF-S NIKKOR 20mm f/1.8G ED is an ultra-wide-angle lensWIDE-ANGLE LENSHas a short focal length, hence a field covering a wide angle, ideal for architectural, interior and landscape photography where the photographer may be unable to move further away from the scene to photograph it. Wide-angle lenses come in both fixed-focal length and zoom lens varieties. that offers you maximum visual impact. Its minimum focus distance of 0.20m draws undivided attention to your subject, creating striking portraits with natural and beautiful background bokehBOKEHPronounced: /ˈboʊkɛ/, /ˈboʊkeɪ/ [boh-kay] or /ˈboʊkə/ [boh-kə]
Originating from the Japanese word Boke (ボケ), meaning 'blur' or 'haze', it refers to the aesthetic quality of the blur produced in the out-of-focus parts of an image produced by a lens. It has also been defined as the way the lens renders out-of-focus points of light. Bokeh depends on various aspects of lens design. Aperture design has the largest effect on Bokeh, and generally a lens with a more rounded aperture produces a more pleasing, natural Bokeh.. A seamless addition to your Nikon DSLR camera, it is developed with the latest optical design technology to help you capture truly outstanding images.
With its ultra-wide-angle focal lengthFOCAL LENGTHMeasured in mm, it is the distance from the focal point of a lens (its centre or curved mirror where light converges) to the plane of the image sensor (film) when an object is in focus. A shorter focal length lens sees a wider image and a longer focal length brings your subject closer. For example, a 15mm lens sees a very wide image and is perfect for landscape photography. Conversely, a 500mm lens sees a very narrow image, brings the subject much closer and is thus great for subjects that are far away, like a bird in a tree. With zoom lenses, its minimum and maximum focal lengths are indicated, for example, as 24-105mm. A zoom lens allows you to change the lens’ focal length, with shorter (wide-angle) and longer (telephoto) options, whereas a fixed focal length lens requires you to move back and forth to find the correct image composition. of 20mm, the AF-S NIKKOR 20mm f/1.8G ED offers you greater flexibility to shoot from an extensive range of perspectives even when you’re limited by space indoors. Take advantage of its 94° angle of view in 35mm FX-format cameras or 70° angle with DX-format cameras, and discover a whole wide world of image possibilities.
Let your creativity take centre stage and leverage the full capabilities of your high-pixelPIXELThe shortening of 'picture element', a basic unit of programmable colour forming the dots that make up an image. Pixel size depends on a camera’s resolution, which is measured in megapixels (MP), meaning millions of pixels. The more pixels on a sensor, the smaller they have to be to fit. An image's number (or density) of pixels correlate to the amount of information and image holds. Cameras with more pixels on the sensor have a higher pixel density and thus more resolving power, able to capture smaller details with much more clarity and accuracy. Higher resolution images can be cropped more agressively and also produce better quality large prints.-count camera. With the AF-S NIKKOR 20mm f/1.8G ED’s exceptionally shallow depth-of-field at the maximum apertureAPERTUREAperture, shutter speed and ISO form what is known as the exposure triangle in photography. Aperture refers to an opening inside the lens, similar to the iris of your eye, that changes in diameter to control the amount of light that enters a camera. Aperture is expressed in f-stops: the lower the number, the larger the aperture, e.g. f/1.4 is larger than f/8. A larger (or wider) aperture allows more light to pass through the lens to the sensor (film) as a picture is taken, particularly useful in low-light conditions. A larger aperture also produces a shallower depth-of-field, and thus more background blur. of f1.8, you can draw more prominence to your subject and reduce distractions in the background, even when you’re shooting in the dark or in narrow indoor spaces. Its minimum focus distance of 0.20m also captures stunning portraits that stand out from the background.
The most advanced optical design technology in the AF-S NIKKOR 20mm f/1.8G ED ensures significantly reduced chromatic aberration, so every pixel is both of high resolution and quality. With Nano Crystal Coat, the images you capture with this lens will also see minimal ghosting and flareFLAREOccurs when a point light source such as the sun or an artificial light (that is brighter than the rest of the scene), hits the front element of a lens resulting in a lack of contrast, haze, or unwanted semi-transparent objects being present in the image. You can avoid lens flare with a lenshood or filters, however, the effect is also useful for bringing artistic elements into an image, such as sun rays peaking out from behind a rock formation. , resulting in extraordinary, crisp clarity.
Compact and lightweight, the AF-S NIKKOR 20mm f/1.8G ED lets you take it everywhere you go and shoot without disruptions. It also comes with a Silent Wave Motor (SWM) that offers incredibly smooth and quiet autofocusing so you can shoot without interrupting your subject.
