Weighing only 155 grams and just 43 mm in length, the new lens is ideal for everyday photography. Its fats f/2.8 maximum aperture provides scope for capturing close-ups with pleasing bokeh and offers excellent low-light capabilities for hand-held shooting. This lens can also be mounted on a DX-format camera, such as the Nikon Z fc or Z 50, the focal length becomes equivalent to 42mm in 35mm format. The minimum focus distance of approximately 19 cm provides plenty of scope for close-ups, while the multi-focusing system ensures a natural rendition across the shooting range with fast and accurate AF control. Quiet autofocusing and effective focus-breathing compensation make it ideal for video recording. The new lens is also dust and drip-resistant.

No information has been provided as to when the lens will reach local shops but pre-orders are being taken, based on a published RRP of AU$399.  Click here for more information.
