Meet the first in a new generation of NIKKOR lenses, NIKKOR Z. Built around the revolutionary new Z Mount. Perfectly matched to Z series mirrorless camera bodies. Designed with a sense of consistency that combines reliability and beauty with next-dimension optical performance for freedom in image creation. 35mm prime. A desert-island lens for many. Wide enough to nail the view. Shallow enough to draw out subjects. Fast enough to make the impossible possible. And so sharp...just utter unwavering sharpness. Few lenses are as versatile as a fast 35mm prime. Ideal for landscapes, street photography, weddings, environmental portraits and more. A favorite among filmmakers for its human-eye perspective. Brilliant in low-light. Lightweight and portable. In reimagining this classic lens for the new Z system, we may very well have perfected it. Empowered by the Z system's larger mount, shorter flange distance, raw imaging power and video capabilities, the NIKKOR Z 35mm f/1.8 S will redefine your perceptions of what an f/1.8 lens can do. Epic definition and resolution from the center of the frame to the edges, even at its f/1.8 maximum aperture. No need to stop this lens down. The larger Z Mount delivers more light to a Z camera's powerful PDAF system for extremely high focusing accuracy and speed. An improved optical formula for virtually zero flare, ghosting, coma or chromatic, spherical and axial aberration, even at the far edges of the frame. A 9-blade rounded diaphragm and f/1.8 aperture combine with the larger mount and shorter flange distance to produce a stunning round bokeh, making for beautiful dreamy backgrounds. Human eye-perspective puts viewers at the heart of the shot, whether it's an interview, tutorial video or product demo. Near-silent autofocus is powered by a new stepping motor. Draws peak performance from a Z camera's outstanding low light capabilities. Captures point-of-light sources like streetlights with uncanny sharpness and minimal spherical aberration. Extensively sealed against dust and moisture, especially around all moving parts of the barrel. Compact, lightweight and ideally balanced on a Z camera. New Customizable Control Ring can be used for manual focusing (default), aperture control (great for iris transitions during video recording) or exposure compensation. Uses the Z cameras' superior in-camera image stabilization system for up to 5 stops of pitch, roll, yaw, X and Y shake correction. Additional electronic VR (e-VR) during video capture.
