Nikon Bares Two New Wide Angle Lenses

Nikon introduces its newest lenses, the AF-S NIKKOR 24mm f/1.4G ED, a fast lens for wide angle application, and the AF-S NIKKOR 16-35mm f/4G ED VR, a versatile wide angle zoom for the FX format.

Nikon said the new AF-S NIKKOR 24mm f/1.4G ED lens blends a natural yet versatile 24mm perspective with an ultra-fast f/1.4 aperture to expand an existing collection of well over 60 NIKKOR interchangeable lenses. The f/1.4 maximum aperture allows photographers to shoot handheld in low light and provides dramatic separation between subject and a softened background.

The new AF-S NIKKOR 16-35mm f/4G ED VR lens is an ideal lens for enthusiasts and professionals who want a constant maximum aperture and ultra-wide angle zoom versatility with the benefits of Nikon’s Vibration Reduction (VR) II image stabilization. The company adds, as the widest FX-format NIKKOR zoom lens with VR, users can realize the ability to shoot up to four shutter speeds slower than otherwise possible, expanding low light shooting opportunities and contributing to dramatically sharper handheld photography and video capture.

The wide angle AF-S NIKKOR 16-35mm f/4G ED VR will be available this month for an estimated retail price of $1,260, while the ultra-fast AF-S NIKKOR 24mm f/1.4 G ED lens will be available in late March 2010 for about $2,200.
