An 18–36mm equivalent lens designed for Nikon DX cameras, this ultra-wide-angle lens is just the one you need if you shoot architecture, interiors, and landscapes. A constant f/4 aperture with seven rounded blades provides excellent lower light performance and bokeh while the 1-foot minimum focusing distance means that you can get as close to your subjects as you’ll ever need to be when using an ultra-wide-angle.
The lens is constructed from 11 elements broken down into seven groups. It contains three aspherical elements and two extra-low dispersion elements, meaning that aberrations and fringing give way to crisp, clear images. Each element is coated with Nikon’s Super Integrated Coating, which eliminates ghosting and lens flare even in bright light or when the image is backlit. Autofocus is swift, silent, and precise thanks to Nikon’s Silent Wave Motor, which relies on ultrasonic technology rather than using a traditionally geared design. It also features internal focus design and full-time manual focus override.
Please note that this lens does not have image stabilization. Additionally, it is designed for crop sensor cameras and will not work with full-frame or 35mm film DSLRs unless your Nikon camera supports DX crop mode. It’s compatible with 77mm filters, has a 99° to 61° angle of view, and a maximum magnification of 0.12x.
