Nikon AF-S 14-24mm f/2.8G ED lens : Nikon Europe announces a new zoom NIKKOR lens designed to maximize the potential of the advanced new FX format Nikon D3 digital SLR camera launched today. Fully compatible with existing DX-format Nikon DSLRs as well, the Nikon AF-S 14-24mm f/2.8G ED lens provides fast f/2.8 apertures across the zoom range. The ultra wide-angle AF-S NIKKOR 14-24mm f/2.8G ED is designed for the exacting optical demands of professional use. “The new Nikon AF-S 14-24mm zoom NIKKOR offers photographers immense creative potential when combined with the new FX-format Nikon D3, but are equally useful for those using Nikon’s DX-format cameras too.” said Robert Cristina, Manager Professional Products & NPS, Nikon Europe BV.|

“The Nikon f/2.8 AF-S 14-24mm lens is the first wide-angle lenses to incorporate Nikon’s unique Nano Crystal coat, that suppresses the ghost and flare that sometimes occurs with the reflective surfaces of digital sensors.” The ultra wide-angle/fast aperture combination of the AF-S 14-24mm f/2.8G ED lens is a world first (as of August 1, 2007), and is highly adaptable for the tight spaces busy professional photographers often find themselves working in. The excellent optical quality of this 14-24mm lens, combined with matchless levels of edge-to-corner detail contributes to brilliant, sharp results.
