Ultra-wide picture angle of 180 degrees on DX sensor is achieved by producing a smaller image circle (the size of the image that is projected by the lens onto the sensor) enabling a smaller lens diameter, lighter weight and optimal image quality from center-to-edge-to-corner on the image.
Equivalent to 16mm focal length on a 35mm.
Minimum focus distance of 0.14m (5.5 in.) or 0.03m (1.2 in.) from the lens front, makes extreme close-ups possible.
Close-Range Correction (CRC) provides high performance for sharper images when taking pictures up close.
Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass element minimizes chromatic aberration.
Design enables a combination of wider angle of view with optical characteristics that are optimized for Nikon digital SLR camera sensors.
Nikon D-type design provides precise distance information for flash and ambient light exposure processes.
Rounded diaphragm makes out-of-focus elements appear more natural.
G-type DX NIKKOR is designed exclusively for use with Nikon digital SLR models.
