Retailing at £620 from 24 May, the new AF-S Nikkor 28mm f/1.8G lens has been designed to achieve the "perfect balance of sharpness and bokeh," claims Nikon.
The lens will bridge the gap between Nikon's 24mm and 35mm lenses. "The 28mm focal length benefits from improved optical construction to control unwanted distortion. This highly anticipated lens is a practical choice for every kit bag," claims Hiromasa Sebata, a product manager in charge of professional products at Nikon UK.
Boasting 11 glass elements, including two asperical lenses designed to minimise aberrations and correct distortions, in nine groups, the AF-S Nikkor 28mm f/1.8G lens uses a Nano Crystal Coat to reduce ghost and flare. It also sports a Silent Wave Motor for "discreet but accurate autofocus."
Fitted on a Nikon DX-format DSLR, the lens will offer a focal length equivalent to 42mm.
