TOKYO - Nikon Corporation (Nikon) announces the release of the NIKKOR Z 20mm f/1.8 S, a fast, ultra-wide-angle prime lens for the Nikon Z mount system's full-frame (Nikon FX format) mirrorless cameras.

The NIKKOR Z 20mm f/1.8 S is part of the S-Line, a newly designated grade of NIKKOR Z lenses that adhere to a new benchmark in optical performance, creating new definitions of design principles and quality control. Images captured with this lens exhibit superior resolution and rendering performance at any distance, from close-up to infinity. Despite being an ultra-wide-angle lens, it exhibits smooth blur characteristics (bokeh) that make it an excellent choice for photographs in which the primary subject stands out from the background. It also achieves superior point-image reproduction performance that is best represented with starscapes and other night landscapes. Sagittal coma flare* is effectively controlled for faithful reproduction of point light sources. Users of the NIKKOR Z 20mm f/1.8 S can enjoy dynamic expression with the powerful sense of space only an ultra-wide-angle lens realizes with a wide variety of photographic scenes, from close-ups to starscapes.
The release of the NIKKOR Z 20mm f/1.8 S brings the number of fast f/1.8 NIKKOR Z lenses to five, achieving coverage of the ultra-wide-angle 20 mm to medium telephoto 85 mm range of focal lengths.

NIKKOR Z 20mm f/1.8 S primary features

  • A focal length of 20 mm that enables dynamic imaging.
  • Adoption of three aspherical lens elements and three ED glass elements ensures images that are incredibly sharp and clear all the way to the extreme edges of the frame, even at maximum aperture, regardless of shooting distance.
  • Excellent point-image reproduction capability that ensures the rendering of point light sources as point images.
  • An ultra-wide-angle lens that manages to achieve beautifully smooth bokeh that dramatically emphasizes the primary subject.
  • Adoption of a multi-focusing system* realizes sharp and clear images, even with shooting at close distances.
  • Adoption of Nano Crystal Coat effectively reduces the ghost and flare that landscape shots including the sun can cause.
  • Incredible control over the distortion normally so common with ultra-wide-angle lenses, even at the extreme edges of the frame.
  • Adoption of a stepping motor (STM) and control ring realizes quiet operation and a smooth operational feel with video recording.
  • Designed with consideration given to dust- and drip-resistant performance, and equipped with an electromagnetic aperture diaphragm mechanism for accurate aperture control.
  • Operation consistent with other NIKKOR Z lenses in the f/1.8 maximum aperture series, enabling smooth transition when switching lenses.
