Nikon 10-20mm f/4.5-5.6 overview

  • 1Description

A versatile wide-angle zoom for Nikon DX-format DSLRs, the AF-P DX NIKKOR 10-20mm f/4.5-5.6G VR is a 15-30mm-equivalent lens well-suited to landscapes, cityscapes, architecture, and interior shooting. Despite its wide field of view, Vibration Reduction (VR) image stabilization is featured to help minimize the appearance of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting. The lens also features a pulse stepping motor AF system, which benefits both video and photo applications due to its fast, quiet, and smooth focusing performance. In regard to its optical design, three aspherical elements are used to control spherical aberrations and distortion throughout the zoom range for improved sharpness and clarity. Additionally, a Super Integrated Coating has been applied to control lens flare and ghosting when working in strong lighting conditions.

Wide-angle zoom is designed for DX-format Nikon F-mount DSLRs, where it provides a 15-30mm equivalent focal length range.
Three aspherical elements are used in the optical design to control spherical aberrations and distortion for notable sharpness and clarity throughout the zoom range.
A Super Integrated Coating has been applied to individual elements to suppress internal reflections, flare, and ghosting for improved contrast and color accuracy when working in strong lighting conditions.
Vibration Reduction image stabilization compensates for camera shake in order to deliver sharper handheld images.
AF-P pulse motor uses stepping motors to deliver 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.

Nikon 10-20mm f/4.5-5.6 reviews

AF-P DX NIKKOR 10-20mm f/4.5-5.6G VR Lens is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 49.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pleasant surpise! I was not expecting much from this inexpensive lens, and it does have it's compromises, but the optical performance is way beyond anyone has a right to expect. It is very good even into the corners, and at all focal lengths. It has a plastic lens mount, that is easily replaceable, and there is no way to turn off the VR, about the only downsides. I'd treat it with care as it doesn't appear to be built for taking abuse, but at the price it would be easily replaceable. It is very light, covers a range that I find welcome and will accompany me on my hikes. A very useful addition to my DX lenses. Thanks Nikon!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strong performance from an inexpensive & lightweight lens I've only had this lens for a few days, but I've put it through its paces with a variety of test shots and have formed some impressions. Pros: Good sharpness wide open, throughout the zoom range and throughout the frame (wow!). Inexpensive. Tiny and lightweight. AF-P autofocus is fast & silent. Resistance to flare & ghosting seems excellent. Cons: Slow maximum aperture; you're probably not going to want to use this one for astrophotography. Plasticky construction (but see lightweight, above.) AF-P is completely incompatible with a lot of older bodies. All in all, excellent optical performance in a lightweight, affordable package. Should be great for travel. Not so great for photographing the Milky Way.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome wide angle lens at a good price! I have been in the market for a wide angle lens since I got my camera. Was going to go with another brand till I heard about Nikon coming out with this one. Was intrigued and decided to stick with Nikon lens for my D7200. Got this 3 weeks ago now and love it. I mostly shoot landscapes and interiors so this lens excels on both. No issue with only going down to F4.5. Photos are crisp even on the edges. Was expecting to not be as sharp due to some of the reviews, but I have seen no issue. It is a bit smaller than I expected. The lens has found a permanant place in my camera bag thats for sure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from NIKON DOES IT AGAIN!!! Fantastic wide angle zoom at a great price. Tack sharp. Not extremely fast, but hand holding at this short focal length is a breeze. I can't believe a handful of reviewers are giving this lens a bad rating just because their DSLR is not compatible with it EVEN TOUGH THE BODIES THAT ARE COMPATIBLE ARE CLEARLY LISTED. Its similar to complaining that an AIS lens won't autofocus. Feather light and freaky fast autofocus. I could go on and on ... but just buy this lens as long as you have a new enough DSLR NIKON to be compatible.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from cheap feel, cheaply made, easily broken On a plus this is a surprisingly light lens. Also a plus, when paired with the D500 produces crisp clear images when focused correctly. Down side: cheap plastic construction including plastic mount. The camera is cheap so not really surprising. In manual focus it does not stop at either end.  Getting perfect focus in manual operationwhen recording video is a significant challenge with this lens - more challenging than other lenses such as the 10.5mm, 16-35mm, 20mm Nikons. Auto focus on D500 with this lens is hit or miss. If you dont mind buying cheaply & keep expectations low I think youll like this lens. Otherwise look elsewhere - youll be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strong performer - great price I've had this lens for about a month and I'm quite happy with it. I have other more expensive, high quality lenses (300 f/4 pf, 16-80 f2.8-4 DX, etc). This lens does quite well and for a fraction of the price of my other lenses. Seems sharp across the board to me. I had the Tamron 11-16 and this compares well in terms of sharpness. Really like the color fidelity of my Nikon lenses (the main reason I have sold all my Tamron lenses). This lens is super light, which is a bonus to me since I don't think twice about taking in with me when I travel. Recently took it with me to Bermuda and was glad to have it in my travel bag. I don't do extensive wide angle shooting. If I did, I might want something more durable. As an easy carry along wide angle lens for occasional usage but where I still want high quality images, this lense is just great. I've been using this on a D7200.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A fun experience for my first ultra-wide-angle I have never owned an ultra-wide-angle lens before. This one intrigued me, especially because of the price. However, I own a D7100, and this lens isn't fully compatible with my camera. I read the comments on the Nikon USA forum, and decided to purchase the lens anyway. When the lens arrived I attach it to my camera and started taking pictures just like I would with any other lens. Everything worked the way it should. I put the lens on my tripod and took some landscape photos. They are as sharp as you would ever expect them to be. No trouble at all with the VR. I have taken photos of my grandchildren playing in the backyard in the wading pool and they are sharp and colorful. Of course, there must be a little cropping here and there. But I am really pleased with how this lens works with my camera. I have no other ultra-wide-angle lens to compare it with. From all I have seen, this lens does everything I have ever expected from this type of a lens. I am very happy that I purchased it, and would highly recommend it to others. It's light and easy to handle. The manual focus is always active on my camera because there isn't any menu option to disable it, but I have never really tried to use manual focus with any of my other lenses anyway. Take note that I am an amateur photographer who is easily pleased. But I am pleased with this new lens.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Ultra-Wide Zoom for Fully Compatible Nikon Bodies Although I already owned the 10-24 mm Nikkor I couldn't pass up this lens when it was on sale this Christmas to use on my D500. I wasn't disappointed. The optical quality is very good at all focal lengths especially in the center with some distortion �in corners but, hey, what do you expect for a lens that cost less than $300. �The VR is very effective and in many ways, including it's light weight. I enjoy using this lens more than I do my 10-24 mm when portability is a factor. If you always wanted to give an ultra-wide a go this lens is a bargain
