Introducing the AF-S NIKKOR 20mm f/1.8G ED, a compact, lightweight FX-format lens that combines the ultra-wide perspective of a 20mm focal length, the low-light capabilities and shallow depth of field of an f/1.8 maximum aperture and the superb optical characteristics of an advanced NIKKOR prime lens.

The AF-S NIKKOR 20mm f/1.8G ED will be available in late September for an SRP of USD $799.95. ;)

>Design based on the latest optical technologies achieves superior point image reproduction characteristics and minimal chromatic aberration.

> The ultra wide-angle 20mm focal length achieves rendering that reproduces the entire space visible to the naked eye, and enables photographic expression that harnesses perspective from a variety of angles.

> Shallow depth-of-field possible only with a maximum aperture of f/1.8 for smooth and beautiful blur characteristics that render subjects more impressively.

> Two aspherical lens elements, two ED lens elements, and Nano Crystal Coat adopted.

> Compact and lightweight for superior portability that makes the lens easy to take anywhere.

> Close-up photography is also possible with a closest focusing distance of 20 cm.

i like all the f1.8 lenses, small, light and sharp, my bank account likes it too
A joy to shoot with
To me it looks like its well made.... their ( Nikon ) saying this is an ENTHUSIASTS Lens seems a little odd. Hoping to see some MTF Charts and real world ( non cat ) photos soon ! ;)

Price is perfect for me on this one, I see little discounts for its first 12 months on the shelf though... It will be popular !

As you can see, the new 20mm f/1.8G lens is significantly sharper wide open both in the center and in the corners and its contrast levels are very impressive.
