Nikon Z 20mm f/1.8 S Lens

The Nikon Z 20mm f/1.8 S Lens is a versatile prime suited to a range of subject types from architecture to interiors and landscapes. An advanced optical design delivers clear, high-quality images with high contrast and accurate colours.

  • Z-Mount Lens/FX Format
  • Aperture Range: f/1.8 to f/16
  • Three ED and Three Aspherical Elements
  • Nano Crystal & Super Integrated Coatings

Designed for FX-format Z-mount mirrorless cameras, but can also be used with DX models where it provides a 30mm equivalent focal length.

Expansive views. Exceptional details.

Combining the unique, ultra-wide perspective of a 20mm prime with the speed and low light capabilities of an f/1.8 maximum aperture, the NIKKOR Z 20mm f/1.8 S brings beautiful context to your full-frame lens arsenal. Its angle of view excels at landscape and wide interior shooting, while its speed makes it superb for environmental portraits with lush, soft backgrounds and low light shots that are sharp and clean with faithful point light reproduction. And the NIKKOR Z 20mm f/1.8 S is truly cinematic with video enhancements that ensure silent autofocusing without breathing, and smooth aperture and ISO control.

S-Line NIKKOR quality at its absolute best

At the top of the ever-expanding NIKKOR Z lens lineup, S-Line lenses push Nikon’s tradition of optical excellence and innovation to unprecedented new heights. Superior performance and resolution. Sophisticated features and operability. Specialised technologies and reliability enhancements. All while taking full advantage of the monumental Nikon Z mount and adhering to the strictest image quality and build standards.

Video with a fresh perspective

With its gorgeous artistic qualities and natural, wide perspective, the NIKKOR Z 20mm f/1.8 S is exceptional for video work in tight spaces or anywhere you want your subject to pop. Autofocusing is fast and silent with minimal focus breathing. Aperture control is smooth as silk. And the customisable control ring can be used to quietly create fluid iris transitions or ISO changes on the fly.

Get the story straight

The ultra-wide 20mm focal length is embraced by pro photographers for capturing more of the story they're trying to tell. Expansive landscapes, scene-setting interiors, unique environmental portraiture -all with more context and less edge distortion than similar shots at longer focal lengths.

Sharpness in darkness

The fast, wide f/1.8 aperture of the NIKKOR Z 20mm f/1.8 S produces remarkably sharp images when available light is in short supply. Its speed and light gathering capability enable the use of faster shutter speeds when shooting indoors, at night or when shooting handheld.

Soft, dreamy backgrounds

Beautifully blurred backgrounds naturally direct the viewer’s eyes to the main subject. Attached to the largest full-frame mount in the industry, the nine rounded aperture blades of the NIKKOR Z 20mm f/1.8 S give defocused points of light a soft, round, consistent shape.

Comprehensive distortion control

3 Extra-low Dispersion (ED) elements correct chromatic aberrations (optical color defects). Nano Crystal Coat (N) virtually eliminates flare, ghosting and coma. And optical advancements of the Z mount and S-Line render point-light sources sharper than ever without the usual diamond-shaped distortion - perfect for environmental portraits, nightscapes and more.

Edge-to-Edge Brightness

One of the many advantages of the larger Z mount is its ability to retain even illumination, especially at the corners of the frame. This results in bright, even exposures with minimal vignetting.

Multi-Focus System

Finely detailed high-resolution photography can sometimes be susceptible to lens aberrations, such as colour fringing, especially at close ranges. The NIKKOR Z 20mm f/1.8 S incorporates an all-new multi-focusing system, consisting of two AF drive units precisely synchronised to deliver fast, accurate autofocusing and drastically reduce aberrations, even when focusing close to your subject.

Enhanced Build and Reliability: S-Line features and quality control

  • Unwavering Autofocus: Powered by an ultra-quiet stepping motor and enhanced by the additional light gathered by the Z Mount, focusing is fast, silent and accurate. Great for stills; even better for video.
  • Dust and Drip Resistant: Extensively sealed to keep dust and moisture out, especially around all moving parts of the lens barrel, for worry-free durability.
  • Dual Detect 5 Axis VR: Uses Z cameras' superior in-camera image stabilisation system for up to 5 stops of pitch, roll, yaw, X and Y shake correction when used with Z cameras that feature in-camera VR. Additional electronic VR (e-VR) during video capture.

Customisable Control Ring

The control ring can be used for quiet aperture control (great for iris transitions during video recording or situations where complete silence is critical), exposure compensation or ISO adjustments.

Next-Generation Z Design and Optics

Designed and optimised to take full advantage of the Z system's larger mount, Z lenses gather substantially more light, providing even illumination and improved sharpness from the centre of the frame to the far edges. Autofocusing is fast and quiet. Video recording is clean and smooth with highly minimised focus breathing and reduced wobbling. Intuitive on-lens controls can be customised to your individual shooting style and so much more. Z lenses are designed with a sense of consistency that combines reliability and beauty with next-dimension optical performance for complete freedom in image creation.
