A 10mm prime lens designed to have a fast f/stop, the 1 NIKKOR 10mm f/2.8 (Amazon | Adorama | B&H) is a fast and effective lens for the shutterbugs. The fast aperture ensure that the lens is perfect for capturing fast action, sports, landscape and low light photography with ease. A focal length that is equivalent to a 27mm on a 35mm format, it is perfect for street photography as well when paired with a Nikon 1 series camera.
An f/stop of f/2.8 means the lens is perfect for the purpose of creating a shallow depth of field and ensures that a soft background blur is always possible when shooting. The 1 NIKKOR 10mm f/2.8 has a range of Nikon innovations bundled into it. The presence of Rear Focusing elements (RF) means only the back lens elements are moving during focusing. It actually helps in achieving a faster auto-focusing system.
Aspherical lens elements (AS) ensures that the spherical aberrations are greatly suppressed in the lens. Aspherical elements also ensures that the lens design is smaller and overall weight is also far less. Nikon has used 2 AS elements in the lens.
Nikon’s Super Integrated Coating (SIC) elements ensures that the lens suppresses the effect of ghosting and flares and enhances the color saturation ensuring a super sharp result every time you press the shutter release.
The diaphragm of the lens is designed using 7 rounded blades. There are a total of 6 lens elements arranged in 5 groups. The overall weight of the lens is only 77mm.
