Shoot for The Stars
Enter each and every photography opportunity with confidence. Making the most of the Z mount system, this ultra-wide-angle lens takes advantage of the large mount diameter and short flange focal distance to achieve high optical performance. It also offers improved autofocus (AF) accuracy at close distances through the multi-focusing system developed to enhance optical performance across the entire shooting range. You can rely on this lens to provide high resolution and sharp images, even in astrophotography or nightscape settings. In these situations, where the light is dim and a wide coverage of the scene is demanded, the NIKKOR Z 20mm f/1.8 S effectively compensates sagittal coma flare at a high level from the maximum aperture. With small point images faithfully reproduced as point images even at the periphery, you can capture the stars exactly as they appear in front of your eyes. Produce stunning and sharp images without colour fringing at the focal plane as a result of the employment of three extra-low dispersion (ED) glass elements that effectively compensate axial chromatic aberration. Deliver images of sunlit landscapes without having to worry about lighting, thanks to the lens’ superb tolerance for backlight with the adoption of the Nano Crystal Coat that reduces ghost and flare effects caused by the sun or any other direct light source. Finally, even as an ultra-wide-angle lens, the NIKKOR Z 20mm f/1.8 S utilises the shallow depth of field to allow you to place emphasis on your subjects with natural and beautiful bokeh. With this lens, the sky’s truly the limit.
The smooth and subtle operations of the NIKKOR Z 20mm f/1.8 S makes it extra easy to record candid moments. You can capture those authentic moments, uninterrupted, with the help of the stepping motor (STM) and electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism, as well as the click-less control ring that prevents lens drive and operation sounds from being recorded. Streamline your movie recording processes with the multi-purpose control ring and customise features best suited to you with ease. Capture reality as it is with natural shifts in focus point and brightness levels. With a focus-breathing reduction feature that reduces the shifting of the angle of view when the focus point changes, and an electronic diaphragm mechanism that delivers stable aperture control constantly, even during continuous shooting, you’ll never have to let a moment slip away.
Your gear should never hold you back from your exploration and the NIKKOR Z 20mm f/1.8 S provides effortless control over your shooting experiences. Seamlessly change up your lenses through the familiar layout of the NIKKOR Z S-Line range and maintain a consistent user experience. Further indulge in high portability with a compact design that weighs approximately 505g. In addition to a fluorine coat, its dust- and drip-resistant capability repels dirt and dust off your lens surface, making this the perfect lens to bring with you wherever you go.
