The AF Nikkor 20mm f/2.8D has a wide f-stop of f/2.8. It is a versatile lens which is ideal for carrying when traveling or shooting at events. The wide angle of view of 94° when mounted on a FX format camera gives the user a deep perspective. The angle of view on a DX format camera is 70°.
This lens is ideally suitable for low light photography, because of the wide f-stop creating perfect exposures at any lighting conditions. The lens is sharp corner to corner and features Nikon’s Close Range Correction (CRC) technology for eliminating issues relating to sharpness when focusing at any focal length. Nikon has also provided its Super Integrated Coating (SIC) technology which ensures that ghosting and flares which are a common nuisance when shooting with wide angle lenses in broad daylight is suppressed to a big extent.
The lens has a total of 12 elements arranged in 9 groups. It is compatible on DX format DSLRs as well though the lens has been designed specifically for FX format (large sensor DSLRs). The lens diaphragm is made of 7 rounded blades.
The minimum focusing distance of the lens is only 0.85’ (or 0.25 meters). Both manual and auto-focusing is provided.
The lens takes a screw-on filter of 62mm. The length x diameter specifications of the lens is 1.7×2.7”. The overall weight of the lens is 270 grams. The lens ships with a 62mm front lens cap and a rear lens cap for prevention of dust and dirt when not in use. AF not supported by D40 and D60 cameras. Available at Amazon | Adorama | B&H
