The latest fixed focal-length lens compatible with the FX format, the AF-S NIKKOR 24mm f/1.4G ED is an wide-angle lens with a maximum aperture of f/1.4. It offers superior optical performance through exclusive Nikon technologies such as the application of Nano Crystal Coat and construction that includes ED and aspherical lens elements.
