Nikon Debuts Super-Fast 32mm f/1.2 Lens for Nikon 1 Mirrorless Cameras

Nikon 1 photographers have a decent selection of eight lenses for their mirrorless camera, and now we can add one more choice to that list: the super-fast medium-telephoto 32mm f/1.2. The lens was announced earlier today, and promises “Superior Resolution and Incredible Depth of Field” for Nikon 1 shooters.

At 32mm it comes out to about 86mm equivalent, giving it decent range while keeping it shallow enough for portrait or street work if need be. And at f/1.2, it officially weighs in as the fastest 1 Nikkor lens, making it perfect for low-light shooting when you don’t have or don’t want to use a flash.

On the technical side, this is also the first Nikon 1 lens to come equipped with a manual focus ring, Nano Crystal Coat and a Silent Wave Motor for videographers who want to keep focus noise to a minimum.

Here are a few sample shots taken with the new lens:

The ninth lens in the 1 Nikkor lineup, you’ll be able to get your hands on either a Black or Silver version sometime in June for a not-so-low MSRP of $900. Head over to Nikon Imaging for more samples/information.
