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. In reimagining this classic lens for the new Z system, we may very well have perfected it.
Find the beauty. Set the story. The versatility afforded by the 35mm focal length gives you the freedom to tell more. Go wide to capture the scene without sacrificing intimacy. Or get in close to explore the emotion in a glance.
How wide is your eye?
The ultra-wide Nikon Z mount enables your NIKKOR Z lens to capture more light across the entire frame. Combined with the short distance between mount and sensor, light fall off at the edges of the frame is significantly reduced. The result is incredible detail—all the way to the edge of the frame.
Frame every detail
The superior resolving power of this lens enables every component of a scene to be faithfully reproduced. Capture more detail and reveal truer colours, all the way to the edge—and even when you shoot wide open.
Superior reproduction of point light sources, such as streetlights at night, is achieved by minimising sagittal coma flare. Point light sources appear as fine rounded points, even at the edges of the image.
Two ED glass elements and three aspherical lens elements ensure crisp, brilliant images with rich colour and deep contrast. Peripheral light falloff is controlled to retain brightness across the frame.
Nikon’s anti-reflective Nano Crystal Coat reduces ghosting and flare for greater image clarity, even in backlit conditions. Or when shooting scenes with numerous direct light sources in the frame.
Patience plus speed equals genius
You’re patient enough to wait for the shot. Nikon’s multi-focusing system and multiple AF drives ensure this lens is fast enough to catch it when it comes. However fast it comes.
Smooth, silent, precise
AF is smooth and practically silent, which makes this lens ideal for shooting movies as well as stills. The lens’ electromagnetic diaphragm ensures precise exposures during high-speed bursts.
High-speed, large-capacity data transfer between lens and camera enables superb distortion compensation for incredible edge-to-edge sharpness. Floating lens elements ensure precise focus at close distances.
This lens uses in-camera Vibration Reduction to let you shoot at shutter speeds up to five stops slower than otherwise possible. Capture clearer photos as daylight fades or film scenes without the unwanted effects of camera shake.
The wide, knurled control ring allows beautifully exact, intuitive operation. When shooting in AF mode, you can assign ISO or exposure-compensation settings to the control ring. When shooting in Manual Focus, the control ring can be used as a focus ring. Focus shifts according to how quickly or slowly you turn the ring. You get sharp control over your point of focus and filming close-ups is easier.
A compelling sense of depth
Smooth, creamy bokeh. Spectacular sharpness. Combined with the nuanced shadows and detailed highlights achieved by your Nikon Z camera, you can create an incredible sense of dimension. Whether you’re shooting photos or movies.
The f/1.8 aperture and rounded 9-blade diaphragm enable creamy, natural-looking bokeh. Highlights are reproduced as gentle points. You get beautifully smooth results, even if you stop the aperture down a little.
Artistry at any distance
The lens’ multi-focusing system ensures your point of focus is rendered sharply even when shooting at close distances. Highlights are reproduced as gentle points.
Shoot exceptional full-frame 4K video footage with beautifully shallow depth of field. This lens gets you closer to gestures that reveal. Eyes that tell. And backdrops that give context.
Quiet on set
The near-silent stepping motor allows the quietest moments to deliver full emotional impact. And with a silent control ring that lets you pull focus with absolute precision, nothing will distract from your tensest scenes.
Focus breathing is all but eliminated, enabling reliable composition of expressive shots. Smooth, stable aperture control delivers natural exposure changes throughout the scene.
Any street. Any weather.
Your Nikon Z camera and this compact prime are built to capture the action of the streets. Every movable part of the lens barrel is sealed to protect from dust and water droplets. A fluorine coating actively repels water, dust, and dirt without compromising image quality.
