NIKON AF-P DX NIKKOR 10-20MM F/4.5-5.6G VR

Nikon launched the new Nikon AF-P DX NIKKOR 10-20MM F/4.5-5.6G VR lens on 31 May 2017. It was available starting from late June 2017. This inexpensive and lightweight lens was designed specifically for APS-C Nikon cameras. It comes with a Nikons Pulse Motor for a very fast and quiet focusing. The best thing about this lens is that it comes with Vibration Reduction system (VR). This is rare for an Ultra Wide Angle lens. Other lenses in this category such as Sigma 10-20mm f/4-5.6 EX DC HSM and Tamron 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5 SP Di-II LD Aspherical (IF) doesnt have any stabilization system in them. Although, those two lenses have a better aperture. Having a stabilizer system in an Ultra Wide Angle lens can be a big bonus for some. More »
