Overview: The Nikon AF-S Nikkor 24mm f/1.4G
ED lens is a fixed focal length lens with a natural wide angle view, and a fast f/1.4 aperture for extreme light-gathering capability. It is designed for use with FX/35mm format cameras, but has
been optimized for edge-to-edge sharpness on both FX and DX-format D-SLRs. When
mounted on a DX-format camera, the angle of view is reduced and equivalent focal
length becomes approximately 36mm (see Specifications below).
Nano Crystal Coat: Nikon's Nano Crystal Coat further reduces
ghosting and internal flare across a wide range of wavelengths for even greater
ED Elements: Two built-in Extra-low Dispersion (ED) elements
offer superior sharpness and color correction by effectively minimizing
chromatic aberration, even at the widest available aperture.
Aspherical Lens Elements: The lens has 2 aspherical lens elements,
which virtually eliminates coma and other aberrations, even at wide apertures.
Silent Wave Motor (SWM): The exclusive Nikon Silent Wave
Motor (SWM) enables fast, accurate, and quiet auto focus.
Rear Focus: Rear Focus (RF) provides smooth and fast
autofocus while eliminating front barrel rotation and lens length changes.
Focus Mode Switch: The Focus Mode switch on the barrel of
the lens lets you easily switch between manual focus and auto focus. If you want
to enable auto focusing, the camera must be set to Auto Focus, and the switch on
the lens needs to be set to "M/A". With most Nikon D-SLRs, the lens gives you a
manual override option, allowing you to rotate the separate focus ring while
pressing the shutter release halfway.
Diaphragm: The lens is equipped with a rounded 9-blade
diaphragm, which renders a more natural appearance of out-of-focus image
Lens Hood: The lens comes with the HB-51 bayonet-type lens
hood. The hood adds approximately 1-3/8" to the overall length of the lens. You
can invert the hood and snap it onto the lens for storage, if desired.
