    Nikon AF-S Nikkor 28mm f/1.4E ED Announcement

      News

    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).

      Zeiss Milvus 35mm f/1.4 is yet another Zeiss lens which enlarges the series of manual lenses intended to be used with full-frame Nikon and Canon cameras. Professional Milvus family are designed to work without any problems with the cameras having high resolution sensors.
       
      Inside the new 35 model, we will find 14 optical elements placed in 11 groups, including 5 lenses made of special glass and one aspherical element. Such an advanced optical system should translate into the above-average image resolution, high contrast and proper color transfer.
       
      Thanks to the use of special elements, chromatic aberration is almost non-existent in this lens. What's more, due to anti-reflection coatings, the lens should fulfill its role perfectly in the contrasting lighting conditions.
       

      1). Zeiss Milvus 35mm f/1.4
       
      Thanks to f/1.4 aperture, we will be able to successfully separate a photographed object of its background and achieve bokeh as well as the malleable blur of out-of-focus parts. The minimum focus distance is 30 cm.
       
      The advanced optical system has been enclosed in the tube made of metal, which is additionally sealed against the influence of weather conditions.
       

      2). Zeiss Milvus 35mm f/1.4
       
      Zeiss Milvus 35mm f/1.4 will be available on sale with Nikon and Canon mounts already in July this year. It will cost around $2000.

      Nikon W300 is the newest version of a resistant compact camera - the camera which will fulfil its role in the situations in which there is a risk of serious damage to a phone or an ordinary camera. The camera is waterproof up to 30m, resistant to falls from a height of up to 2.4m and resistant to low temperatures.
       
      When it comes to the inside of the camera, the most important element - BSI CMOS sensor (ISO range 125-6400) still has 16Mp. The same zoom lens, with an equivalent of 24-120mm and the light of f/2.8-4.9, is also at our disposal. At the back, we have the same 3'' LCD display with the resolution of 921k points.

      When it comes to the new features, the most important change is the possibility of recording films in 4K, with the speed of 30f/s, or in Full HD 1080, with the speed of 60f/s. The producer has also added a diode with the use of which we will be able to light a photographed scene, and Active Guide mode in which we will gain access to additional GPS data, such as height, speed or location.

      The camera is also equipped with Wi-Fi and Snapbridge functions which, with the use of Bluetooth, automatically send the taken photos directly to your smartphone.

      The camera will appear on sale in the summer. It'll have four color versions and it'll cost $389.
