The Worlds First 14mm Ultra Wide-Angle Zoom Lens with a Constant f/2.8 Aperture and a Highly Versatile 24-70mm f/2.8 Zoom has just been launched by Nikon in August 2007.
“The AF-S NIKKOR 14-24mm f/2.8G ED represents one of Nikons best optical designs with performance that rivals that of prime lenses. And we anticipate the AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm f/2.8G ED will become very popular among professional photographers due to its remarkable versatility and optical performance. Both lenses maintain an astounding level of sharpness from the center of a picture to its edges and corners throughout their zoom range,” said Edward Fasano, general manager for Marketing, SLR Systems Products at Nikon Inc.
Also, the new 3 telephoto lenses:
AF-S NIKKOR 400mm f/2.8G ED VR,
AF-S NIKKOR 500mm f/4G ED VR, and
AF-S NIKKOR 600mm f/4G ED VR
all offer unprecedented image quality, responsiveness and versatility along with new features such as Nikons VR II Vibration Reduction technology and Nikon’s exclusive Nano Crystal Coat. When using Nikons VR function, you can view a stabilized image through the viewfinder, meaning that you are able to compose the pictures naturally and with greater accuracy.
The new optical design for all three lenses features three ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements that minimize chromatic aberration, producing consistently high-quality images. Nikons exclusive Nano Crystal Coat – an extra-low refractive index coating – virtually eliminates internal lens element reflections across a wide range of wavelengths, and is particularly effective in reducing ghosting and flare. A meniscus protective glass element also minimizes the ghosting that occurs when light reflected from a digital cameras image sensor is in turn reflected off an ordinary flat protective glass element.
