1 NIKKOR range

1 NIKKOR lenses capture life with exceptional sharpness. Designed with active lifestyles in mind, the growing range covers a wide range of scenes and each lens is optimised for movie recording. Combined with the portability, power and speed of Nikon 1 cameras, the small size of 1 NIKKOR lenses truly sets the Nikon 1 system apart. As the fastest lens to join the range, the 1 NIKKOR 18.5mm f/1.8 allows superb low-light images, even at low ISO, and portraits with beautiful bokeh.

Fast and bright

The strong combination of 18.5mm focal length and large maximum aperture makes this new 1 NIKKOR lens perfect for low-light situations and for portraiture. The 18.5mm fixed focal length offers a picture angle equivalent to approx. 50 mm in 35 mm format, which is ideal for portraits as well as general photography. The fast f/1.8 maximum aperture perfectly balances sharpness and bokeh, rendering low-light moments with superb clarity and letting you single out subjects to create images with smooth, out-of-focus backgrounds.

High-quality glass

Equipped with high-quality glass, this 1 NIKKOR lens delivers edge-to-edge sharpness even at maximum aperture. An aspherical lens element ensures superior resolution and contrast, and a smooth aperture mechanism lets you move easily from sharp to soft backgrounds whether you are shooting stills or a movie. The small size of the lens balances perfectly with small Nikon 1 camera bodies, offering exceptional image quality without sacrificing portability.

Vision and style

Lightweight, easy-to-carry and great value for money, this new 1 NIKKOR lens is available in shiny silver as well as semi-gloss black, and white. Optional accessories include the CL-N101 lens soft case and the HB-N104 bayonet lens hood, which helps reduce stray light and minimise flare for images with better contrast and color saturation.

The lens is supplied with a front and rear lens cap, with an RRP of £179.99. For more information please visit the Nikon website.

Good to see that Nikon are supporting the 1 system - pity Pentax don't seem to be doing the same with that little interchangeable-lens compact they introduced a while ago.

I've been waiting ages for a 50mm equivalent for my V1.

I will surely venture more on Bokeh when I get my hands on this. It's been a little while since I posted last but I've been putting the camera through it's paces and some!

Will share a few pictures shortly.

But this lens is truly a game changer for this format. Fast, wide aperture .. tops!

Thank you Nikon Wink
