New Babies from Nikon

9 02 2010

Nikon is trumpeting two new lenses: the super fast AF-S NIKKOR 24mm f/1.4G ED and the AF-S NIKKOR 16-35mm f/4G ED VR wide angle zoom. The latter featuring:

  • Definitive Wide-angle Zoom Lens
    Versatile wide-angle lens, perfect for travel, land and cityscapes, and general photography.
  • Nikon VR II (Vibration Reduction) Image Stabilization
    Vibration Reduction, engineered specifically for each VR NIKKOR lens, enables handheld shooting at up to 4 shutter speeds slower than would otherwise be possible, assuring dramatically sharper still images and video capture.
  • Nano Crystal Coat
    Further reduces ghosting and interior flare across a wide range of wavelengths for even greater image clarity.
  • 2 Extra-low Dispersion (ED) Elements
    Offers superior sharpness and color correction by effectively minimizing chromatic aberration, even at the widest aperture settings.
  • 3 Aspherical Lens Elements
    Aspherical lens elements virtually eliminate coma and other types of aberration, even when shooting at the widest available aperture.
  • Internal Focus (IF)
    Provides fast and quiet autofocus without changing the length of the lens, retaining working distance throughout the focus range.
  • Exclusive Nikon Silent Wave Motor (SWM)
    Enables fast, accurate and quiet autofocus.
  • M/A Focus Mode Switch
    Enables quick changes between manual and autofocus operation.
  • Rounded 9-Blade Diaphragm
    Renders more natural appearance of out-of-focus image elements.

The 24mm f/1.4G ED boasts these impressive feature list::

  • Prime Wide-angle Perspective—Ultra-fast f/1.4 Aperture
    Natural wide angle of view, with extreme light gathering capability, delivers extraordinary performance, meeting a broad range of challenging assignments.

    Further reduces ghosting and internal flare across a wide range of wavelengths for even greater image clarity.
  • 2 Extra-low Dispersion (ED) elements
    Offers superior sharpness and color correction by effectively minimizing chromatic aberration, even at the widest aperture settings.
  • 2 Aspherical Lens Elements
    Aspherical lens elements virtually eliminate coma and other types of aberration, even when shooting at the widest available aperture.
  • Rear Focus (RF)
    Provides smooth and fast autofocus while eliminating front barrel rotation and lens length changes.
  • Exclusive Nikon Silent Wave Motor (SWM)
    Enables fast, accurate and quiet autofocus.
