Nikon has just presented a prime, wide-angle AF-S Nikkor 28mm f/1.4E ED lens, which can work with both FX and DX sensors. The lens is a perfect choice for both portrait and landscape photography and, as the producer assures, that lens reproduces the natural expansion of a space.
1). Nikon AF-S Nikkor 28mm f/1.4E ED
The lens consists of 14 elements placed in 11 groups, including two lenses made of ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) glass, and three aspherical ones.
The lens is equipped with a 9-blade aperture, thanks to which it should create beautiful bokeh.
A well-known Silent Wave Motor (SWM) is responsible for adjusting focus. The lens is also equipped with Rear Focusing System (RF), thanks to which the lenses placed at the rear are the only moving elements so the lens does not change its length during the adjustment of focus. The minimum focus distance is 0.92 ft. (0.28m).
