Our take on the Nikon 11-27.5mm f/3.5-5.6 1 Nikkor

For everyday photo opportunities, many camera enthusiasts find that a lens with a short zoom range gives them framing flexibility while not being too bulky. Now imagine you have that same power in a lens that's 31mm long and lighter than 3 ounces. This 1 Nikkor 11-27.5mm lens won't add much bulk to your already compact Nikon 1 Series camera, making it easy to carry in a jacket pocket or daypack while still having the artistic range of a typical DSLR with a kit lens. With an equivalent range of 30-74mm, this lens will be at home with group shots or tight indoor spaces, while giving you the oomph for that close-up candid shot from across the room.

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.
