Nikon 32mm f/1.2 lens release date and price become official

Nikon has finally launched the 1 Nikkor 32mm f/1.2 lens, which represents the fastest optic ever released for the “1” range or mirrorless cameras.

Nikon has been teasing a prime lens for mirrorless cameras users who enjoy taking portrait photos since October 2012. However, the 32mm glass has not been officially announced until now, when it has finally shed the prototype status, being declared ready for prime time.

The mirrorless segment is relatively young in the camera industry, therefore consumers need convincing before investing in a new system. In order to get the attraction of the customers, Nikon needs to provide more lenses and this is what the company is currently doing.

The Nikon 1 mirrorless cameras will be graced by the presence of this fixed focal length medium-telephoto lens, which provides a 35mm equivalent of 86mm.

Additionally, its aperture is not so fast when considering the 35mm status. From f/1.2, the aperture will slow down to f/3.2, which is still quite good for taking portrait images.

The ever-increasing 1 Nikkor lens offering will now include an “accurate” optic, which provides impressive blur and bokeh effects, which are key features to consider in portrait photography.

Nikon says that the 1 Nikkor 32mm f/1.2 lens is the first of its kind to include a Silent Wave Motor, Nano Crystal Coat, and a manual focus ring, which allows photographers to switch between auto and manual focus.

As stated above, this may prove to be crucial for mirrorless adopters, who have yet to benefit from such a powerful and fast 1 Nikkor optic.

The Nikon 32mm f/1.2 lens comes packed with a so-called Close-Range Correction System, which cuts down chromatic aberrations, while supplying higher image quality and improved textures.

The Nikon 1 Nikkor 32mm f/1.2 lens release date is June 2013. The optic will be offered in Black and Silver colors for a price of $899.95.

Amazon has already started listing the Black and Silver versions for a price of $896.95. The popular retailer says that the item’s shipping date is expected to be June 13, which means that the lens is only one month away from your doorstep.
