Nikon/Nikkor AF-S 24mm f/1.8G ED lens features:

FX format

The Nikon AF-S 24mm f/1.8G ED is a full frame (FX format) lens. Nikon's full frame lenses can be mounted on Nikon professional bodies (FX), or even cropped sensor (DX) bodies. When the lens is mounted on a DX crop Nikon camera the focal length gets boosted to 36mm (35mm equivalent).

Wide-angle focal length of 24mm

The Nikon AF-S 24mm f/1.8G ED lens features an expansive wide view of +-70 degrees (on FX cameras), enabling you to capture expansive images with large backgrounds.

Compact and lightweight

The lens features small dimensions of 77.5 mm x 83.0 mm , and weighs a mere 355g, making it highly portable and easy to carry.

Fast f/1.8 maximum aperture

The Nikon 24mm f/1.8G ED lens features a super fast and wide open fast maximum aperture of f/1.8. At f1.8 the lens captures up to 4 time more light than a standard zoom at 24mm, and makes capturing sharp pictures in dim light much easier.
Another advantage of a fast maximum aperture is depth of field, by opening your lens aperture to f/1.8 the depth of filed will become extremely shallow, and enable you to blur your background and highlight your subject.

Fantastic optical quality

Prime / fixed focal length lenses captures sharper and higher quality images. This is because zoom lenses have much more glass elements which alters, and degrades the light as it travels through the lens to the sensor/film.

Two ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements minimizes chromatic aberration to deliver superior sharpness and colour reproduction, and a Super Integrated coatings helps to reduce ghosting and flares

A Nano Crystal coating reduces internal lens element reflections to effectively reduce ghosting and flares.

Two aspherical lens elements corrects distortion, and helps to reduce coma aberrations.

Close minimum focusing distance of 23cm

The wide angle focal length, short focus distance and large maximum aperture will enable users to capture a close-up of their subject while still being able to capture an expansive and blurred / out-of-focus background.

Silent Wave Motor

All AF-S NIKKOR lenses feature Nikon's SWM which enables high-speed autofocusing that's both extremely accurate, and super quiet.
