The editors over on the PopPhoto.com blog take the lens caps off of two new pieces of glass unveiled February 9th by Nikon and angling photographers should be happy there’s a couple of hyper fast new wide lenses to choose from.
“The first is a 24mm F1.4G ED that offers an 84-degree picture angle on an FX-format body (61 for DX-format). The other is an AF-S NIKKOR 16-35mm F/4G ED VR aimed at the enthusiast market. It’s the widest lens in Nikon’s line-up to come toting their VR II image stablization system, which Nikon claims can buy you up to four stops.”
Neither are particularly inexpensive at $1,259.95 and $2,199.95 respectively – but for that kind of quality, speed and vibration reduction on such wide lenses you can’t really argue too much.
