Nikon have launched the ultra-fast 1 NIKKOR 32mm f/1.2 lens. It brings large-aperture portrait photography to the Nikon 1 system.
With a focal length that’s ideal for portraiture and a compact design, this CX-format lens combines superior image quality with convenience. And, as the first 1 NIKKOR flagship lens to be announced this new lens marks an expanding line-up.
This fast and portable lens allows you to capture striking portraits, bringing your subject into focus and creating smooth bokeh. The wide aperture allows you to capture crisp images in low light. The 32mm focal length is equivalent to approximately 85mm in 35mm film format, a classic portrait length that allows for tight head and shoulder shots with extreme detail.
Simon Iddon, Product Manager for Nikon 1 Compact System Cameras, Nikon UK said: "Nikon 1 owners will enjoy exploring the creative effects of this new flagship lens and will appreciate the advantages that come with the f/1.2 aperture, such as shallow depth-of-field.” He continues: “Nikon is dedicated to developing lenses that make the most of the Nikon 1 system and we’re excited about the potential of this new 1 NIKKOR 32mm f/1.2lens that also gives serious portrait photographers a brilliant portable option".
The lens will be priced at £799.99, and will be available from 13 June 2013. For more information, visit the Nikon website.
