This NIKKOR 18.5mm f/1.8 lens is introduced for the Nikon 1 series cameras. It may be the best performing lens yet for these cameras.

It is the lightest and most compact lens yet for these mirror-less cameras. It has a very low aperture of  f/1.8 comparable to the fastest lenses available for the larger digital SLR cameras.

This lens will be very suitable for capturing images in dimly lit environments. Of all the available lenses for the Nikon 1 system this lens is my choice.
