Nikon have now released a new Nikon Nikkor 24mm f/1.8 lens which will suit many photographers for low available light applications.
The lens has Nikon’s Nano Crystal Coat technology with an aspherical lens and Extra low Dispersion glass elements.
This lens should prove to be excellent for landscape and general photography where a wide angle lens of 24mm is needed. Nikon now have a great range of f/1.8 lenses; the 20mm, 24mm, 28mm, 35mm, 50mm and 85mm. I have the 28mm f/1.8 lens and it is an excellent performer similar to all the mentioned lenses.
This is a G lens and has no aperture ring.
