Chances are, if you've been stopped in your tracks by a picture of a landscape or a piece of architecture, like a bridge or a building, that shot was captured by a wide-angle lens. The same goes for big foreground objects where your sense of perspective seems enhanced. And when you have a lens that can deliver this and a more "normal" field of view simply by adjusting the zoom, well, having this lens in your camera bag just seems like a no-brainer. It's certainly a problem-solver when you're shooting in tight quarters, as a simple zoom adjustment will most likely gather what you want to see into the frame.

Of course this 6.7-13mm lens features the superb optics and fine build quality that denote a 1 Nikkor lens. It also offers vibration reduction for extra insurance against unwanted motion blur and is well-suited to gathering sharp, clear HD video.
