Nikon announces an ultra-wideangle zoom lens for Nikon DX Digital SLRs
Nikon today announced the new AF-S DX NIKKOR 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5G ED lens with built-in Silent Wave Motor (SWM) for Nikon DX-format digital SLR cameras. Compact and lightweight, this ultra wide-angle 2.4x zoom DX NIKKOR features a focal length range of 10 to 24mm, whose picture angle of 109°-61° is equivalent to a focal length of 15 to 36mm in FX- and 35mm format cameras. Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 10-24mm F3.5-4.5G ED lens is suitable for diverse scenes from restrictive interiors, architecture and panoramic landscapes to a creatively exaggerated perspective.
The newly developed optical system features two ED glass and three aspherical lens elements for truly outstanding optical quality, producing stunning images. The Silent Wave Motor (SWM) incorporated in the lens body offers fast, smooth and nearly silent AF operation, providing photographers with outstanding handling performance.
The AF-S DX NIKKOR 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5G ED, with its ultra wide-angle perspective and superior image quality, gives users of Nikon DX-format digital SLRs — including the D300, D90, D60, D40 and the new D5000 — more opportunities for creative photographic expression.
