Rokinon has announced that its ultra-wide AF 14mm F2.8 lens will arrive for Nikon F-mount in September. The lens, which is already available for Canon EF, is the maker’s first auto focus lens for Nikon. The model features 15 glass elements in 10 groups, including two aspherical lenses, four high refractive index lenses, and one extra-low dispersion lens. The glass has Ultra Multi-Coating (UMC) anti-reflective coatings.
The lens features a Manual / Auto Focus switch and an aluminum alloy housing, as well as a 7.8″ / 0.20m minimum focusing distance, weather sealing, and a 16.7oz / 474 grams weight. According to Rokinon, the AF 14mm F2.8 “meets or exceeds the performance characteristics” of similar ultra-wide lenses.
The Rokinon AF 14mm F2.8 for Nikon F will be available in September for $799 USD.
