Nikon has just unveiled three new NIKKOR lenses that are sure to cause a stir in the “small focal length community.” Introducing the AF-S NIKKOR 28mm f/1.4E ED, AF-P DX NIKKOR 10-20mm f/4.5-5.6G VR, and AF-S Fisheye NIKKOR 8-15mm f/3.5-4.5E ED. The 28mm prime lens is part of NIKKOR’s Gold Ring Series, the 10-20mm wide angle lens is a great value for beginners on DX cameras, and the 8-15mm is the first-ever Nikon fisheye zoom lens.
AF-S NIKKOR 28mm f/1.4E ED
The newest lens in the Gold Ring Series, the AF-S NIKKOR 28mm f/1.4E ED is an incredibly fast lens that delivers stunning sharpness, end-to-end clarity and virtually no distortion or aberrations. With beautifully blurred backgrounds and great low-light performance, this lens is a portrait workhorse. The 28mm angle of view produces a very natural and “life-like” image, with compositions and perspectives that look just as intended. Equipped with two ED glass elements and three AS lens elements, you can expect consistent brilliant photos and videos. At $1,999.95, this lens is expensive for a standard focal length lens but it will replace every other prime, standard NIKKOR lens on the market, including 28mm, 35mm and 50mm lenses.

Compact, lightweight and durable, this ultra-wide lens will create beautiful photos and videos, even in challenging conditions. The near-silent autofocus is great for recording video, and the vibration reduction (VR) helps with low-light shooting and keeping handheld photos and videos sharp. At $309.95, this lens is affordable for almost any dSLR photographer and absolutely screams value.
