The AF-S NIKKOR 20mm f/1.8G ED is a fast, ultra wide-angle 20mm fixed focal length lens with a maximum aperture of f/1.8.

Adoption of Nano Crystal Coat suppresses the generation of flare and ghost, and the latest optical design technologies achieve superior rendering capabilities that ensure excellent resolution and minimal chromatic aberration. Compact and lightweight, the lens is extremely portable.

In addition, its ultra-wide angle of view and fast aperture enable photographic expression that makes the most of blur characteristics. It is the optimal lens for achieving dynamic expression of nature's majesty and cityscapes, as well as for portraying the overwhelming presence of colossal structures.

The AF-S NIKKOR 20mm f/1.8G ED allows users to capture photos that preserve the sense of incredible scale felt when looking directly at a subject or scene. By adding the AF-S NIKKOR 20mm f/1.8G ED to its lineup of fast, f/1.8, fixed focal length NIKKOR photographic lenses, Nikon is responding to a variety of ever-expanding needs with regard to photographic expression from the ultra wide-angle to mid-telephoto range
