Overview: The Nikon 1 Nikkor 11-27.5mm f/3.5-5.6 lens is wide-angle to medium-telephoto zoom lens that is optimized for general photography, such as portraits, group shots, and landscapes, as well as HD videos. It is exclusively for Nikon 1 interchangeable lens format digital cameras, such as the J2, J1, and V1. The angle of view is equivalent to a 35mm format lens with a focal length of 30-74mm. It comes with the LC-N40.5 snap-on 40.5mm front lens cap, and the LF-N1000 rear lens cap. The lens barrel is black. A white version is also available.
Optics: The 1 Nikkor 11-27.5mm lens is considered an Internal Focusing (IF) lens, in which only the internal lens group shifts during focusing. The lens utilizes both Aspherical (AS) and Extra-low Dispersion (ED) Glass elements to correct or eliminate certain types of lens aberrations.
Retractable Lens Mechanism: The lens includes a retractable lens mechanism that allows you to manually retract the lens when the camera is not in use. When you are ready to shoot, the lens can be extended by pressing the retractable lens lock button and turning the zoom lens. To retract the lens, you can turn the zoom ring until it locks in place in the retracted position.
Diaphragm: The lens is equipped with a rounded 7-blade diaphragm to provide softly blurred backgrounds for portraits.
