Product Description
Shoot in the dimmest lighting conditions without a flash or softly blur the backgrounds of your photos and videos with the first f/1.8 lens in the 1 NIKKOR lineup. Create photos and videos that mimic what you see with your eyes-both in perspective and brightness. From casual snapshots to creative close-ups, every image will be true to your memory of the moment. Greater capabilities, new inspiration.So many spectacular views appear when the light is fading-dramatic sunsets, the final inning of play, an evening stroll in the city or a warm moment around a campfire. 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) and its 18.5mm fixed focal length (equivalent to a 50mm lens in 35mm format) mimics what we see with our eyes. From casual snapshots to creative close-ups, every image will be true to your memory of the moment.

This speed opens up new opportunities for low-light and high-speed shooting so you can capture brilliant shots while the light is waning. But that’s not all. 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. Take a closer look – Focus as close as 8.4-inches from your subjectCombine 1 NIKKOR 18.5mm f/1.8’s speed and depth of field control with an enhanced close focusing capability (just 8.4-inches), and you can get more creative t…
