Nikon NIKKOR Z 20mm f/1.8 S Lens

The NIKKOR Z 20mm f/1.8 S Lens combines an ultra-wide perspective of a 20mm prime with the speed and low light capabilities of an f/1.8 maximum aperture. Designed for use with full-frame cameras, it is a true cinematic lens with video enhancements that ensure silent autofocusing and smooth aperture. With a wide 94-degree field of view and high-speed performance, the NIKKOR Z 20mm f/1.8 S Lens is perfect for capturing landscapes and sharp, clean portraits with soft backgrounds.

High-Quality Performance

Recently added to the NIKKOR Z lens lineup, this S-Line lens offers superior performance and resolution with sophisticated features and operability. All while taking full advantage of the monumental Nikon Z mount and adhering to the strictest image quality and build standards. Built based on the same standards as premium NIKKOR S-Line lenses, the NIKKOR Z 20mm f/1.8 S offers an ultra-wide focal length range up to 20mm with f/1.8 maximum aperture that provide exceptional point-light clarity and minimal distortion.

Comprehensive Distortion Control

The lens’ optical design utilizes three Extra-low Dispersion (ED) elements that correct chromatic aberrations (optical color defects) for sharp images. A Nano Crystal coating, added to the lens surface, virtually eliminates flare, ghosting, and coma. Its improved optical features helps capture point-light sources without the usual diamond-shaped distortion making this lens perfect for environmental portraits, nightscapes and more.

Fast, Silent Autofocusing

The NIKKOR Z 20mm f/1.8 S Lens offers fast and silent autofocusing with minimal focus breathing. Its aperture control is smooth as silk. It also features a customizable control ring that can be used to quietly create fluid iris transitions or ISO changes on the fly.

Sharpness in Darkness

The NIKKOR Z’s fast, wide f/1.8 aperture produces remarkably sharp images when available light is in short supply. Its speed and light gathering capability enable the use of faster shutter speeds when shooting indoors, at night or when shooting handheld.

Soft, Dreamy Backgrounds

The nine rounded aperture blades help create beautiful blurred backgrounds to capture amazing portraits with bokeh.

Multi-Focus System

Finely detailed high resolution photography is sometime prone to lens aberrations, such as color fringing, especially at close ranges. The Nikon NIKKOR Z 20mm f/1.8 S Lens incorporates an all-new multi-focusing system using two AF drive units precisely synchronized to deliver fast, accurate autofocusing and drastically reduce aberrations, even when focusing close to your subject.
