Nikon Wide Angle Lenses:
Nikon produces a broad selection of the wide-angle prime lenses for the Nikon FX (full-frame) and DX-format (APS-C) DSLRs and five wide-angle zoom lenses. Several lenses, including the latest version of the workhorse AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm f/2.8E ED VR, begins at a wide-angle but reaches the standard or telephoto lengths when used in zoom.
The AF-S NIKKOR 20mm f/1.8G ED has a very fast maximum aperture and a minimum focus distance of just 7.8″, which is also a nice combination of size and optical performance. On a DX format sensor, it shall provide the 35mm focal length equivalent of the 30mm. The older Nikon AF NIKKOR 20mm f/2.8D remains in the lineup.
The AF Fisheye-NIKKOR 10.5mm f/2.8D captures 180 degrees of imagery for DX and FX-format Nikon DSLRs, respectively.
Numerous fast aperture, ultra-wide primes represent some of the finest glass Nikon makes from the AF NIKKOR 14mm f/2.8D ED to the AF-S NIKKOR 24mm f/1.4G ED And if you’re looking for a tilt-shift option that comes in a wider than 24mm lens, Nikon also has the Nikon PC NIKKOR 19mm f/4E ED Tilt-Shift lens.
