The AF-S NIKKOR 28mm f/1.8G Lens from Nikon
delivers on all the qualities Nikon is known for: superb image quality,
up-to-the-minute features, and relentless attention to detail. This is a
very fast 28mm wide-angle lens for full-frame (FX) and APS-C (DX) Nikon
cameras. The f/1.8 maximum aperture enables very effective low-light
imaging and shallow depth of field focus control.
quality and clarity is provided by the lens' Nano Crystal Coating which
reduces ghosting and interior flare and the Super Integrated Coating
which enhances light transmission and color consistency. Two aspherical
lens elements minimize coma and other lens aberrations. Nikon's Silent
Wave Motor (SWM) delivers fast, accurate, and quiet autofocus which is
especially important when shooting video and its Rear Focusing system
ensures that the front element won't rotate during focus. Full-time
manual focus override allows for precise manual focusing even in
autofocus mode. This lens will focus to an impressively close 9.8" and
its 7 rounded diaphragm blades lend a beautiful quality to the
out-of-focus portions of your images.
This is a "G" series lens,
which means that there is no physical aperture ring -- the aperture must
be controlled by the camera. When used on a DX-format camera, the lens
provides the equivalent focal length of a 42mm lens in the 35mm format.
