A smart ultra-wide, the AF-S NIKKOR 20mm f/1.8G ED from Nikon blends a desirable broad field of view with a sleek form factor, a bright design, and a sophisticated optical layout.

Wide-Angle Prime & Fast Aperture
Compatible with FX- and DX-sensor cameras, the Nikon 20mm f/1.8 provides a 94° angle of view on full-frame and 70° equivalent on crop-frame cameras. Bright f/1.8 maximum aperture benefits working in low-light conditions and also offers increased control over depth of field.

The Lens’s optical construction includes two aspherical and two ED elements to minimize spherical and chromatic aberrations for greater sharpness and clarity. Also, both Nano Crystal and Super Integrated Coatings have been applied to lens elements to minimize surface and internal reflections for a marked reduction in lens flare and ghosting for improved contrast and color accuracy.

Silent Wave Motor
Balancing the optical attributes, the lens is also characterized by a Silent Wave Motor that produces quick, quiet, and precise autofocus performance along with full-time manual focus override. A rear focusing design is also used, where only the rear lens group is moved during focusing to maintain the overall length of the lens during use and to promote faster focusing speeds.

Movri Canada, providing the mail-delivery system, is set out to make the gear available at more affordable prices through online rentals.

  • The Nikon 20mm f/1.8G can be paired with both full frame sensor cameras, such as the Nikon D810, and with crop frame sensor cameras, such as the Nikon D7200. The focal length equivalent on crop frame sensors is 30mm.

  • This lens is not compatible with 2X and 1.4X Nikon tele converters.

  • This lens is ideal for larger group portraits, landscapes, interiors, lifestyle, and candid photography and is especially well suited for events and environmental shooting.
