Nikon 18.5mm f/1.8 Overview

Ultra-Fast Maximum Aperture

The speed of a lens describes its maximum aperture. The larger the aperture, the more light it lets in and, therefore, the faster the lens. At f/1.8 this lens's speed opens up new opportunities for low-light and high-speed shooting. When shooting at f/1.8, your photos and videos have extremely shallow depth of field, which means your subject will be in perfect focus, but the background will be softly blurred.

Provides a Normal Angle of View

Create photos and videos that mimic what you see with your eyes-both in perspective and brightness. From casual snapshots to creative close-ups, every image will be true to your memory of the moment.

Is this Nikon 1 NIKKOR 18.5mm f/1.8 Lens compatible with a Nikon D7100?
Asked by: April R.
Nikon makes an adapter to use their 35mm/DSLR lenses on the 1 V3 camera. I've got one and it works perfectly. But I've never seen an adapter that allows the use of the 1 NIKKOR lenses on their film/digital SLRs.

question

Is there an adapter I can get for this to mount it on my Canon 70d ?
Asked by: September B.
Sorry, but no. The image circle its too small on the Nikon 1 lens to use on a Canon APS or Canon full frame camera. They only make adapters that go the other way : Canon lens to Nikon 1 camera.

return policy?
Asked by: Anonymous
B&H has a 30-day return policy. The lens would need to have all of its original packaging and still be in new condition. You can find a link to the B&H Return Policy below:<a href= http://bhpho.to/19fUBwL target= _blank >http://bhpho.to/19fUBwL</a>
