Product Overview

Nikon AF-S Nikkor 20mm F1.8G ED is an ultra wide-angle prime lens for Nikon F-mount. It covers the full-frame image circle. Introduced by Nikon in 2014, it has 13 elements in 11 groups.
Unfortunately, Nikon has opted to omit weather sealing for this lens, so owners should pay extra attention when shooting in incremental weathers.
The bright maximum aperture for an ultra wide-angle lens is appreciated for night and astro photography. Even though the lens is not stabilized, at this focal range it does not usually matter. In fact, some may be able to get cleaner corners without image stabilization.
