Our take on the Nikon 10mm f/2.8 1 Nikkor Lens

by Woody Sherman

Here's a pop quiz: What is the primary building block in all visual art?

We'll give you a minute.

Who said light? Yes. It's the use — the considered and deliberate use or manipulation — of light. That's all. Everything else springs from there.

So, it only follows that a lens that gathers more light... will gather more options in the process. It's certainly the case with this 10mm wide-angle Nikkor lens for the Nikon 1 Series of hybrid cameras. With an expansive, 27mm equivalent wide-angle, you're set for getting a roomful of people into the shot — but it's the fast f/2.8 aperture that will give you the control to make things moody or vibrant. You'll also gain more control of the image's depth with subjects in the close foreground, for garden photography that pops off the page or screen.

Don't forget this lens when you've got a landscape or a house that needs a sales portrait — it has the power to take big spaces and render them with precision and integrity. And with acclaimed Nikkor optics onboard, you'll be using this lens as your low-light specialist for a long time to come.

Nikon 10mm f/2.8 1 Nikkor Lens

Written By Nice lens, Griffin, GA on Sunday, June 03, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
I almost sent this lens back since I had the 10-30mm because I thought I might not use it. I did a lot of close up shots with it yesterday and they were amazing. I will definitely keep the lens.
Beautiful shots.
The lens fits tightly and I sent the first one back because it did not go on as smoothly as the other lenses.
