NikonToday Nikon announces the introduction of two new DX Nikkor lenses that will stand next to the already introduced AF-S DX 12-24mm f4G IF-ED lens. The new AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor 17-55mm f2.8G IF-ED and the new AF DX Fisheye Nikkor 10.5mm f2.8G ED are different lenses giving the Nikon digital photographer a new creative way of capturing images. This new lens, the Nikkor AF DX Fisheye 10.5mm f2.8G ED, offers an incredible 180? picture angle with all of Nikon DX format digital SLRs. This new lens offers great creativity and flexibility for all digital Nikon photographers. The DX Fisheye Nikkor lens exhibits the same incredible depth of field and unique perspective characteristics of traditional fisheye lenses.
The fisheye lens is capable of focusing down to just 14cms. The digital fisheye images in NEF (RAW) format can now be automatically corrected with the new Nikon Capture 4 software.

Both DX Nikkor lenses offer extremely low coma,, lateral aberration and improved MTF over their respective 135 format cousins the AF-S Nikkor 17-35mm f2.8D IF-ED and AF Fisheye Nikkor 16mm f2.8D. The new DX Nikkors supplements a Nikkor lens range that delivers consistent picture angles whichever DX format sensor body (or bodies) are being used.

The new AF-S DX 17-55mm f2.8G IF-ED is a high-quality wide-angle zoom lens designed for general photographic situations. The focal range of 17-55mm is equivalent to 25,5-82,5mm on a 35mm camera. The optical design enables a high 3.2 zoom ratio to be implemented with a fast aperture of f2.8 without sacrificing performance of handling. The lens incorporates 3 ED (Extra Low Dispersion) and 3 aspherical glasses in a 10 group 14 element construction. Intended to offer improved quality and flexibility over the AF-S Zoom-Nikkor 17-35mm f2.8D ED lens (designed for 135 format) the new AF-S DX 17-55,, f2,8G IF-ED also incorporates a SWM for whisper-quiet and fast Auto focus and aspherical elements for minimal distortion.

Both lenses are expected to be available around autumn 2003.
