The 1 NIKKOR 11-27.5mm f/3.5-5.6 (Amazon | Adorama | B&H) is a versatile lens and is the go to lens for shooters looking for a standard zoom lens. This is a CX format lens compatible with all Nikon 1 series (Nikon 1 mount) cameras. At only 31mm long and with the 11-27.5mm focal length (30-74 on a 35mm format equivalent) this lens is just perfect for the purpose of shooting wide angle shots, landscapes, architecture and group photos. The fast aperture is also suitable for the purpose of capturing fast action photography and for creating a soft background blur in portraiture. At the narrow end the lens can stop down to f/16.
The 1 NIKKOR 11-27.5mm f/3.5-5.6 comes with several of Nikon’s technological advances. The AS (Aspherical) elements in the glass ensures the suppression of spherical aberrations. The presence of ED (extra-low dispersion) elements ensures that the lens plays down color fringing and increases the color saturation of the final images. Again the presence of Internal Focusing (IF) means that the lens never protrudes or extends when focusing thereby never increasing the overall length of the lens barrel.
The lens has 8 elements arranged in 6 groups. The lens diaphragm is made of 7 rounded blades. It has a maximum angle of view of 72° and a minimum of 32°20”.
The diameter x length specifications of the lens is 2.26×1.22”. The overall weight of the lens is only 80 grams. The lens ships with the LC-N40.5 front lens cap and a LF-N1000 rear lens cap.
