The new optics is, according to the firm, ” the first full-frame ultra-wide-angle lens in the world (for digital cameras) that has a flat front element “. This ” allows the use of 82 mm filters without the bulky filter holders “. Thus, the combination of this feature plus ” a small size ” and a retractable design make it ideal for travel and allows photographers (always according to Nikon) to have ” more control and freedom to capture landscapes, cities, architectures, interiors or videos . “
The objective is to add to the (currently) limited supply of lenses for the Nikon Z and, like the other three that were already presented, the new lens is hermetically sealed against the elements. In addition, it also includes a customizable control ring that can be used to focus on manual (the default option), to compensate for exposure, adjust the diaphragm or many other uses.
Its ” unique ” design is based on 14 elements distributed in 12 groups , with four ED-type lenses, four aspherical lenses, several elements with nanocrystal coating and a front lens with fluoride coating. This configuration plus ” fast communication between the lens and the camera minimizes the usual distortion in wide-angle photography. The sharpness is exceptional. When making videos, the aperture of the constant f / 4 diaphragm allows you to pass from the intense daylight to dark interiors without problems . “
