About the Nikon AF-S Nikkor 20mm f/1.8G ED
Sharp wide-angle performance in almost any light
A rocky, windswept coastline. New York City at night. A ballroom full of dancers at your daughter's wedding. You can capture it all with this fast, ultra-wide 20mm Nikon lens. Its impressive low-light capabilities provide nearly endless opportunities for shooting rich, natural-looking images — indoors and out — without the need for a flash. Superb Nikon optics and a large maximum aperture let you closely control depth of field while taking tack-sharp wide-angle photos, even when shooting wide-open at f/1.8. A perfect match for FX-format Nikon SLRs, this compact, lightweight lens also works great with DX-format cams.
