Nikon 1 NIKKOR 32mm f/1.2 in Interchangeable Lenses

32 BK A
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.

799 = $1223 USD at current exchange rates and reaction over there seems to be that it's pricey at $900 USD. Don't you just love UK pricing?

Whilst it's good to see Nikon putting development behind its mirrorless system I find it hard to imagine who would shell out for a lens that gives roughly 85mm equivalent AoV and DoF equivalence of f3.2 sold as a portrait lens; you could buy an APSc camera and a lens which would give the same sort of DoF effect for much less money.

That does however ignore the light gathering capability of this lens wide open, at which setting a not-so-shallow DoF might actually be its real strength. Gig photography springs to mind where this might be useful, along with other indoor photography where you're relatively close or want to capture more of the scene.

How that balances against the sensor's low light performance is I suppose the critical thing. It is a very fast lens...
