Nikon AF-P DX NIKKOR 10-20mm f/4.5-5.6G VR Overview

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.

I'd used a Tamron 10-2mm for several years, and it had several issues with the electronics, but this Nikon lens is lighter weight, with vibration reduction, and better focusing capacity...it's been great so far.

Excellent lens for the price

Is a very good lens... lightweight, very sharp... a lot of distortion in the maximum focal length, but is expectable at 10mm. I bought it for landscape and in my reports in construction. Very good performance, even in low light conditions. I do panoramic and 360 degree pictures (wee planets) and this lens is the best choice/investment. Remember, is a entry level wide angle lens... so you get what you pay for.

Worked well as expected...used it to take some after wedding photos... depending on the setting, a flash might be helpful. I didn't use one and could have for one or two pictures...

Excellent lens

An excellent lens to use with my Z50 and ftz adapter. The lens is small and light. It's almost like weightless. When paired with my Z50 and I can carry it all day long and enjoy shooting. Distortion is minimal. Image is sharp. 15mm - 30mm FF equivalent range is just perfect. With high quality and low noise image when shooting high ISO like ISO6400, I rarely need a big and heavy f2.8 fast WA lens. For 300$, this lens is under priced.

It's a Nikon

An okay upgrade

I initially got this lens for videography, due to its most recent technology in autofocus and optical image stabilization, within the DSLR tech generation; also, to replace my old, outdated Sigma 10-20mm DC f/4-5.6 zoom lens, paired with my D500. And also, to use it as a low-budget UWA lens for my future Nikon Z camera. After some usage, I've come to realize that this Nikkor lens is softer than my Sigma UWA, for photography, regardless of aperture. Also, it's not precisely weather-resistant. Hence, the four-star rating I'm giving to it. On the other hand, it's lightweight, autofocus is instantaneous, accurate and quiet, OIS is great, and the image quality for casual and more serious videography is more than enough for what I need. Between this Nikkor and the Sigma, I'll keep using the Sigma 10-20mm f/4-5.6 for its superior image quality for photography, and the Nikon one for videography.

First time with a super wide angle - love it.

This lens goes wide enough for somewhat of a fisheye effect, it's great for panning across the scene and bending the edges for a disorienting look, and can pull in to a good dimensional wide-angle view in a moment. I'm very pleased with the expanded capability it provides, because so often, it's not possible to get back far enough to get a scene in frame in an indoor environment, or sometimes outdoors in rocky terrain, or in urban structural locations. I like it a lot.

Is this compatible with a D4s?

It a lens for DX format, but I used it with a D850 and results were good. Of course in 10mm the borders will be black, but from 14 to 20mm it fills the entire frame. The optic quality in a full frame is ok for my purposes. The focus must work with the D4. I don't use that much an extreme wide, so for me it is ok to use this instead of buying a 15mm for full frame.
