    2 in stock

    Nikon NIKKOR Z 35mm f1.8 S Lens   A favoured focal length for everything from landscape to street shooting, the NIKKOR Z 35mm f1.8 S is a prime wide-angle lens characterized by its versatility and bright f1.8 maximum aperture. Furthering its merits, the optical design features two extra-low dispersion elements and three aspherical elements, which reduce a variety of aberrations and distortion to produce imagery with high sharpness, clarity, and accurate colour rendering. Both Nano Crystal and Super Integrated Coatings are used, too, to suppress flare and ghosting for greater colour fidelity and higher contrast. Benefitting the optics, a stepping motor provides quick, quiet, and precise autofocus performance along with full-time manual focus override to suit both stills and video applications. Additionally, a programmable control ring can be set for intuitive adjustment over a variety of camera and exposure settings. Prime wide-angle lens is designed for FX-format Z-mount mirrorless cameras. Bright /1.8 maximum aperture suits working in difficult lighting conditions and also offers increased control over depth of field for isolating subjects and working with selective focus. Three aspherical elements are used to reduce spherical aberrations and distortion in order to realize sharp imagery with accurate rendering. Two extra-low dispersion elements greatly reduce colour fringing and chromatic aberrations in order to produce greater clarity and colour rendering. A Nano Crystal Coat, along with a Super Integrated Coating, has been applied to lens elements to minimize surface and internal reflections for a marked reduction in lens flare and ghosting. Stepping motor delivers impressively smooth, quiet, and fast autofocus performance that is well-suited to both stills and video applications. Full-time manual focus override is also possible and an internal focusing design is used, where only the internal lens groups are moved during focusing, to maintain the overall length of the lens during use and to promote faster focusing speeds. Programmable Control Ring is, by default, set to adjust manual focus, but can also be used to control aperture or exposure compensation. Specialized electromagnetic aperture mechanism provides greater exposure control stability that is especially beneficial when working with fast continuous shooting rates. Rounded nine-blade diaphragm promotes a pleasing out of focus quality that benefits the use of shallow depth of field and selective focus techniques. Dust- and moisture-resistant lens barrel benefits the lens' use in inclement conditions.

    Panasonic Panasonic Lumix S 50mm F1.8 - L mount Lens

    1 in stock

    Panasonic introduces a new wide-aperture standard prime lens, the LUMIX S 50mm F1.8 (S-S50), as the second addition to the series of four F1.8 wide-aperture lenses based on the L-Mount standard. A total of four F1.8 lenses from the LUMIX S Series feature a common size and position of control parts which, for example, make it easy to exchange lenses quickly when the camera is on a gimbal with minimum adjustment of connected gears. In addition, because the diameter is consistent, users can also apply the same filters across this set of lenses. The filter diameter is 67 mm, with a 9-blade circular aperture diaphragm. The LUMIX S 50mm F1.8 comprises nine elements in eight groups including three aspherical elements, one ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) lens and one UHR (Ultra-High Refractive Index) lens. The three aspherical elements achieve high descriptive performance and beautiful bokeh across all F1.8 lenses in the series, and are suitable for a wide range of images, from portrait to landscape. Notably, the ED lens effectively suppresses chromatic aberration. The LUMIX S 50mm F1.8 also excels in video recording performance with a mechanism that suppresses focus breathing, previously a serious problem with all lenses designed for still-image photography. This advantage, together with a micro-step aperture control for smooth exposure change, produces professional quality video. Compact, lightweight (approximately 300g), dust/splash-resistant, and able to withstand use under harsh conditions below freezing, the LUMIX 50mm F1.8 is designed for excellent mobility. Beautifully smooth bokeh and strong low light capabilities thanks to a wide, rounded aperture Sharp, detailed high resolution results suitable for any L-mount mirrorless camera Weather sealing with dust and splash-proof design for outdoor work in all conditions Compact and lightweight prime at just 82mm long and 300g Nine lens elements in eight groups include three aspherical lenses, one ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) lens and one UHR (Ultra-High Refractive Index)
