Nikon AF-S Nikkor 8-15mm f/3.5-4.5E ED & AF-P DX NIKKOR 10-20mm f/4.5-5.6G VR Lenses Coming Soon

By on

In addition to the Nikon 28mm f/1.4 lens, the company is rumored to announce two new wide-angle lenses. They are the AF-S Fisheye NIKKOR 8-15mm f/3.5-4.5E ED and AF-P DX NIKKOR 10-20mm f/4.5-5.6G VR lenses.

Nikon 8-15mm f/3.5-4.5E ED lens is primarily designed for FX-format DSLRs while the Nikon 10-20mm DX lens is primarily for APS-c sized sensor cameras.

The maximum aperture of the upcoming Nikon 10-20mm DX lens is similar to the Canon 10-18mm and Sigma 10-20mm. So it would be a budget-friendly model.

The Nikon 8-15mm f/3.5-4.5E ED specs will include an electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism in the lens barrel. This provides highly accurate electronic diaphragm or aperture blade control when using auto exposure during continuous shooting. ED is an optical glass that is used with normal optical glass in telephoto lenses to obtain optimum correction of chromatic aberrations.

Below are price for these three new lenses:

  • AF-S NIKKOR 28mm f/1.4E ED Lens – JPY 240,300 – US Price around $2,099.00
  • AF-S Fisheye NIKKOR 8-15mm f/3.5-4.5E ED Lens – JPY 148,500 – US Price around $1,299.00
  • AF-P DX NIKKOR 10-20mm f/4.5-5.6G VR Lens – JPY 40,500 – US Price around $349.00

Japan-based company will also introduce three new lens hoods and one new lens cap:

  • Nikon HB-80 lens hood
  • Nikon HB-81 lens hood
  • Nikon HB-83 lens hood
  • Nikon LC-K102 lens cap

As a side note Nikon D820 is expected to be announced this Summer. It will have the same AF system as the Nikon D5 ($6,497).
