Nikon has today announced the AF-S 14-24mm f/2.8G ED Nikkor zoom lens, offering a full range of professional features to provide superior overall performance. In addition to a fast f/2.8 maximum aperture at all focal lengths, the AF-S 14-24mm f/2.8G ED features a short close-focusing distance of 0.28 m/0.9 ft. with focal length set between 18-24mm. It’s an ideal lens for both photojournalism and general photographic needs.

The newly developed optical system ensures matched synchronization with Nikon’s digital SLRs. The design featuring ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements for minimal chromatic aberration, and aspherical lenses including large-diameter PGM (Precision Glass Molding) elements to eliminate croma and other types of aberration even at the widest aperture — provide higher resolution and well-balanced aberration correction. Nano Crystal Coat, 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.

Other important features include Nikon’s Super Integrated Coating that minimizes reflection in the wider wavelength range to ensure superior color balance and reproduction. Nikon’s exclusive SWM (Silent Wave Motor), incorporated in the lens body, ensures fast, quiet autofocus operation. M/A mode lets users switch quickly from automatic to manual focusing, even during AF servo operation, with virtually no time lag. The rounded diaphragm opening makes out-of-focus elements appear more natural. A fixed-type flower-shaped bayonet hood is supplied.

The lens barrel is designed for a secure hold, with zoom and focusing rings designed for easy smooth rotation, and are rubber-coated to provide comfortable operation while ensuring ample ruggedness.
