If you really want to capture the best of life’s adventures, you need a lens that you can take anywhere. And we mean anywhere.
Waterproof, shockproof, and freeze-proof, this 1 NIKKOR AW wide-angle lens is not afraid of the elements and can take a bump or two. With its robust build and luxurious metallic exterior, it complements the Nikon 1 AW1 camera perfectly.
The 10 mm focal length is ideal for close-ups and sweeping vistas. The fast maximum aperture of f/2.8 means sharp shots of low-light moments, which is especially handy when shooting in murky underwater environments.
