Advanced Nikon lens technologies

The AF-S DX Zoom-NIKKOR 12–24mm f/4G IF-ED combines a wider angle-of-view with optical characteristics that are optimized for advanced DX-format Nikon D-SLR camera sensors. The lens produces a smaller image circle (the size of the image projected onto the sensor), enabling a smaller lens diameter and optimal image quality from centre to edge to corner. Its rounded diaphragm makes out of focus elements appear more natural, and its Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass ensures superior sharpness and colour performance.

Silent Wave Motor

AF-S NIKKOR lenses feature Nikon’s Silent Wave Motor (SWM). This technology converts “traveling waves” into rotational energy to focus the optics. This enables high-speed autofocusing that's extremely accurate and super quiet.

ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) Glass

An optical glass developed by Nikon that is used with normal optical glass in telephoto lenses to obtain optimum correction of chromatic aberrations.


AS stands for Aspherical lens elements. This type of lens utilizes non-spherical surfaces on either one or both sides of the glass in order to eliminate certain types of lens aberration.


Select NIKKOR lenses have a focusing mode which allows switching from automatic to manual focusing with virtually no lag time by simply turning the focusing ring on the lens. This makes it possible to seamlessly switch to fine manual focusing while looking through the viewfinder.

IF Lens

A NIKKOR lens in which only the internal lens group shifts during focusing. Thus, IF NIKKORS do not change in size during AF operation, allowing for compact, lightweight lenses capable of closer focusing distances. These lenses will be designated with the abbreviation IF on the lens barrel.

Expert review of the Nikon 12-24mm f/4 G ED-IF AF-S DX Nikkor interchangeable lens

What Digital Camera

Nikon's Nikkor AF-S 12-24mm has a constant f/4 through the zoom range. What Digital Camera's Nikkor AF-S 12-24mm f/4 G ED IF DX lens review sees if it's as good as buy as it seems...


Nikon were the first to produce a dedicated ultra wide angle lens for their cropped sensor cameras and they obviously put all their experience of both SLR lenses and wide angle for smaller sensor (Coolpix) lenses to full use.


A nice lens, definately gives you that "Shock and Awe" wide angle back to digital. I would have liked it to have a better range of zoom, but....


ePHOTOzine lens tester, Gary Wolstenholme takes a look at the 12-24mm G ED lens from Nikon. As an innovative lens when it was released, can it hold its own against the new third party lenses?

This is seriously wide, making it really versatile and valuable for when there's little room or you've got to get a lot in the shot; think press, weddings, events, architecture and some kinds of landscape. If you can get close enough, it's fantastic for wildlife too!

Clifton Cameras

Good all round performer, this lens, especially nice performance in the center. Distortion is well controlled in this wide angle.

First off, I'm new to this type of camera. I've only had good but still point and shoot cameras. I bought a Nikon D7200 camera and lens kit, not too impressed with the two lens that came with it. Did a little research and for the money this seemed like a good lens.

Photography Review

Strength: Sharp enough in the center, even wide open! Gets adequate in the sides and corners after some stopping down. Weakness: Has a tendency to miss focus badly on all distances om my D3200.


I have over 15 Nikon lenses. When I hike, I found that the 18-200 f 3.5 - 5.6 was not wide enough. I have used the 12 - 24 at Yosemite, Bernie Falls, and at other locations. It is sharp for people and landscapes and with just 2 lenses and my D 300, I have a wide range that does not weigh me down too...


I shoot candid photojournalism and some landscape. 12-24 is a great range for this purpose. The lens matches my D200 well and since its mostly enclosed and non telescoping, I even take it out in heavy rain with just a tightly screwed on UV filter, a pierced ziploc bag and a bunch of rubber bands to...

B&H Photo

A simply amazing lens. A must have for any landscape photographer.


When I first got this lens a few years ago, it worked great and produced excellent images out of my D2X.

As it got older (and subjected to more of the knocks that come with pro use in the field), image quality gradually degraded. Have had it back to Nikon in CA twice to get it serviced.

Photography Review

Strength: Fast focusing with AF-S, good size and weight. Weakness: A little pricey for an F/4. Lens hood design seems to be wider than nessesary. I love wide angle lens and this lens gives me the room I need when working close to subject and to see the big picture.
