Nikon Unveils New AF-S NIKKOR 35mm f/1.4G Fast Lens

Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 35mm f/1.4G Lens

Nikon USA introduces a new premium fixed lens, the AF-S NIKKOR 35mm f/1.4G, which gives a moderate wide angle on a full frame FX camera and delivers a normal (52.5mm) focal length when mounted on a DX Nikon. The new lens promises sharp images and its fast maximum aperture ensures a bright viewfinder image as well as beautiful background blur, perfect for interiors, weddings, photojournalism and landscape photography.

The AF-S NIKKOR 35mm f/1.4G features 10 optical elements in seven groups with one aspherical lens element that should eliminate chromatic and other types of aberration even when shooting at the widest available aperture.

The new lens will be priced at $1,800 when it begins shipping in mid-November, 2010.
