    NIKKOR quality at its absolute best.
    At the top of the ever-expanding NIKKOR Z lens lineup, S-Line lenses push Nikon’s tradition of optical excellence and innovation to unprecedented new heights. Superior performance and resolution. Sophisticated features and operability. Specialized technologies and reliability enhancements. All while taking full advantage of the monumental Nikon Z mount and adhering to the strictest image quality and build standards.

    The beauty is in the details.
    Premium NIKKOR S-Line lenses are known for their stunning resolution, elaborate detail and impeccable build quality. The NIKKOR Z 20mm f/1.8 S is no exception. With an ultra-wide 20mm field of view and a brilliant f/1.8 maximum aperture, so much more of a scene can be captured with exceptional point-light clarity and minimal distortion.

    Video with a fresh perspective.
    With its gorgeous artistic qualities and natural, wide perspective, the NIKKOR Z 20mm f/1.8 S is exceptional for video work in tight spaces or anywhere you want your subject to pop. Autofocusing is fast and silent with minimal focus breathing. Aperture control is smooth as silk. And the customizable control ring can be used to quietly create fluid iris transitions or ISO changes on the fly.

    Get the story straight.
    The ultra-wide 20mm focal length is embraced by pro photographers for capturing more of the story they're trying to tell. Expansive landscapes, scene-setting interiors, unique environmental portraiture—all with more context and less edge distortion than similar shots at longer focal lengths.

    Sharpness in darkness.
    The fast, wide f/1.8 aperture of the NIKKOR Z 20mm f/1.8 S produces remarkably sharp images when available light is in short supply. Its speed and light gathering capability enable the use of faster shutter speeds when shooting indoors, at night or when shooting handheld.

    Soft, dreamy backgrounds.
    Beautifully blurred backgrounds naturally direct the viewer’s eyes to the main subject. Attached to the largest full frame mount in the industry, the nine rounded aperture blades of the NIKKOR Z 20mm f/1.8 S give defocused points of light a soft, round, consistent shape.

    Comprehensive distortion control.
    3 Extra-low Dispersion (ED) elements correct chromatic aberrations (optical color defects). Nano Crystal Coat (N) virtually eliminates flare, ghosting and coma. And optical advancements of the Z mount and S-Line render point-light sources sharper than ever without the usual diamond-shaped distortion—perfect for environmental portraits, nightscapes and more.

    Edge-to-Edge Brightness.
    One of the many advantages of the larger Z mount is its ability to retain even illumination, especially at the corners of the frame. This results in bright, even exposures with minimal vignetting.

    Multi-Focus System.
    Finely detailed high resolution photography can sometimes be susceptible to lens aberrations, such as color fringing, especially at close ranges. The NIKKOR Z 20mm f/1.8 S incorporates an all-new multi-focusing system, consisting of two AF drive units precisely synchronized to deliver fast, accurate autofocusing and drastically reduce aberrations, even when focusing close to your subject.

    Enhanced Build and Reliability.
    S-Line features and quality control.

    Unwavering Autofocus
    Powered by an ultra-quiet stepping motor and enhanced by the additional light gathered by the Z Mount, focusing is fast, silent and accurate. Great for stills; even better for video.

    Dust and Drip Resistant
    Extensively sealed to keep dust and moisture out, especially around all moving parts of the lens barrel, for worry-free durability.

    Dual Detect 5 Axis VR
    Uses Z cameras' superior in-camera image stabilization system for up to 5 stops of pitch, roll, yaw, X and Y shake correction when used with Z cameras that feature in-camera VR. Additional electronic VR (e-VR) during video capture.

    Customizable Control Ring
    The control ring can be used for quiet aperture control (great for iris transitions during video recording or situations where complete silence is critical), exposure compensation or ISO adjustments.


    Stepping Motor
    NIKKOR Z lenses use a stepping motor for fast, accurate, smooth, quiet autofocus with reduced wobbling. This quiet drive system makes the lenses ideal for use when shooting video.

    Electromagnetic Diaphragm Mechanism
    An electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism in the lens barrel provides highly accurate electronic diaphragm or aperture blade control when using auto exposure during continuous shooting. With conventional D/G type lenses, the diaphragm blades are operated by mechanical linkage levers.

    ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) Glass
    An optical glass developed by Nikon that is used with normal optical glass in telephoto lenses to obtain optimum correction of chromatic aberrations.

    Nano Crystal Coat
    An anti-reflective coating developed by Nikon that virtually eliminates internal lens element reflections across a wide range of wavelengths. Nano Crystal Coat solves ghost effects caused by red light and effectively reduces ghost and flare caused by light entering the lens diagonally.

    Aspherical Lens
    A lens with a curved, non-spherical surface. Used to reduce aberrations and enable a more compact lens size. Aspherical lenses minimize coma and other types of lens aberrations, even when used at the widest aperture. They are particularly useful in correcting distortion in wide-angle lenses and help contribute to a lighter, more compact design by reducing the number of standard (spherical) elements necessary. Aspherical lens elements correct these distortions by continuously changing the refractive index from the center of the lens.

    IF Lens
    A NIKKOR lens in which only the internal lens group shifts during focusing. Thus, IF NIKKORS do not change in size during AF operation, allowing for compact, lightweight lenses capable of closer focusing distances. These lenses will be designated with the abbreviation IF on the lens barrel.

    Super Integrated Coating
    Nikon Super Integrated Coating is Nikon's term for its multilayer coating of the optical elements in NIKKOR lenses.

    Next-Generation Z Design and Optics
    Designed and optimized to take full advantage of the Z system's larger mount, Z lenses gather substantially more light, providing even illumination and improved sharpness from the center of the frame to the far edges. Autofocusing is fast and quiet. Video recording is clean and smooth with highly minimized focus breathing and reduced wobbling. Intuitive on-lens controls can be customized to your individual shooting style and so much more. Z lenses are designed with a sense of consistency that combines reliability and beauty with next-dimension optical performance for complete freedom in image creation.
