Nikon | Three News Lenses Introduced

Nikon announced the introduction of three new lenses - two for full frame Nikons and one very attractive lens for DX bodies.

Nikon AF-P 10-20mm F4.5 -5.6  ED VR
This lens promises to be a winner for DX users - it is light only 230 g in weight, reasonably priced   $309 and has VR as well.  It would be the ideal wide angle zoom for DX shooters who want to travel light and yet have the convenience of a wide zoom. Its competition would be the Nikon 12-24 F4DX and the 10-24 F3.5-4.5. This lens would be slower than both the other two DX wide angle zooms  and also lose 4mm on the top end. However, you get a lighter lens with a significant reduction in cost. One waits to see what the optical performance  would be like but looking at Nikon's latest offerings this promises to be very good. Neither of the two earlier Nikon DX wide angle zooms had vibration reduction.

Nikon AFS Fisheye 8-15 F3.5-4.5 ED
This a wide angle fisheye zoom for full frame Nikon DSLRs. If you do a  lot of photography in cramped interiors and need a fish eye perspective then this could be a choice. However the obvious deterrent is the price $1250. This is a gold ring lens so expect the same build quality and weather sealing as the other gold ring lenses in the Nikon stable. The lens also focuses to 0.5 inches making it very suitable for close up work.

Nikon AFS 28 F1.4 E ED
This lens complements F1.4 series of wide angle  primes the 24 F1.4 and the 35 f1.4. If you have any of these two lenses then adding the 28 f1.4 would not be a prudent choice. The lens has been built on the  Nikon 28 F1.4 AFD which was one of the legendary lenses in the film days. Priced at $1999 this is also a gold ring lenses and eminently suitable for low light work, interiors etc delivering gorgeous bokeh at the f1.4 aperture. Nikon's prime lenses are built to extremely high quality and one expects the same performance from this lens. The lens is on the heavier side 645 grams for a prime lens.

These lenses can be pre ordered  and should be in the shops by late June 2017

  1. मुझे कैमरे की जानकारी बहुत कम है, ना ज्यादा समझ ही आती है इसलिये मैं तो automatic camera ही उपयोग करता हूँ, सबसे अच्छा पाकेट कैमरा, चाहे दस दिन की ट्रैकिंग हो, कोई परेशानी नहीं होती है
