  • Ultra-wide Aperture
  • Optical Conversion Factor: 2.7x
  • Extremely Shallow Depth of Field
  • Filter Diameter: 40.5mm
  • Shoot in the dimmest lighting conditions without a flash or softly blur the backgrounds of your photos and videos
  • From casual snapshots to creative close-ups, every image will be true to your memory of the moment
  • The 1 NIKKOR 18.5mm f/1.8 lets you capture those low-light moments exactly as you see them
  • Its ultra-wide f/1.8 aperture delivers remarkably bright photos and videos with beautifully blurred backgrounds (what the pros call bokeh)
  • 18.5mm fixed focal length (equivalent to a 50mm lens in 35mm format) mimics what we see with our eyes - both in perspective and brightness
  • Master low light and depth of field:
  • The speed of a lens describes its maximum aperture - the larger the aperture, the more light it lets in and, therefore, the faster the lens
  • This speed opens up new opportunities for low-light and high-speed shooting so you can capture brilliant shots while the light is waning
  • When shooting at f/1.8, your photos and videos have extremely shallow depth of field - your subject will be in perfect focus, but its background will be softly blurred
  • Use that effect to create flattering portraits, to draw attention to a particular area in your shots and much more
  • Focus as close as 21.4cm from your subject:
  • Combine 1 NIKKOR 18.5mm f/1.8's speed and depth of field control with an enhanced close focusing capability (just 21.4cm), and you can get more creative than ever
  • Change your perspective - get close to a flower blossom for a stunning macro-style shot
  • Set your aperture to f/1.8, then bring the flower petals into crystal-clear focus while the surroundings fade into a soft, beautifully blurred texture
  • The 1 NIKKOR 18.5mm f/1.8 gives you creative freedom from any distance
  • Expand your creativity: Build a versatile lens system:
  • As a second lens, it gives you enhanced low-light, a fast f/1.8 aperture and close-up shooting capabilities
  • Pair it with the 1 NIKKOR VR 30-110mm (Sold Separatley), and cover a broad focal length range: from standard to telephoto
