The AF-S NIKKOR 24mm f/1.8G ED Lens rounds out Nikon's series of f/1.8 primes that blend both a versatile fixed focal length with a bright maximum aperture. This wide-angle lens incorporates aspherical and extra-low dispersion elements to compensate for chromatic aberrations and distortions in order to render sharp, clear imagery. A Nano Crystal Coat has also been applied to lens elements in order to reduce flare and ghosting for increased contrast and color accuracy.
Complementing the optical design is a Silent Wave Motor, which contributes to fast, quiet autofocus performance. Its internal focusing design further enables quick, exacting focus control and full-time manual focus override is possible by simply turning the focus ring in any mode.
