The wide bunch Nikon has bolstered its FX and DX lens line-ups with three exciting wide-angle options – and they’re sure to interest scenic shooters

Capping a year of creative competition, this month five talented camera clubs battled it out for the ultimate accolade – but who was crowned CCOTY 2017? Find out on page 7. Camera Club of the Year: The Grand Final

Nikon’s wide-angle range has been swelled by the AF-S 28mm f/1.4E ED, AF-S Fisheye 8-15mm f/3.5–4.5E ED andAF-PDX10-20mmf/4.5-5.6GVR. These new optics are sure to excite Nikon shooters who favour wide views and exaggerated perspectives. The 28mm f/1.4 is the latest in Nikon’s line-up of ultra-fast glass, opening up expressive shallowdepth- of-field effects and faster low-light shooting. A minimum focus of 28cm adds evenmore versatility.

The Fisheye 8-15mm provides two fisheye effects in one lens; a circular viewat 8mm, anda frame-fillingeffect at 15mm. With a minimum focus of 16cm, and edge-to-edge sharpness promised, even at the widest f/3.5 setting, you can expect highly detailed creative shots. Both full-frame lenses have a dust- and drip-resistant build to help you tackle scenics in challengingweather. Completing the picture is the AF-P DX 10-20mm VR. Aimed at

users wanting wide-angle stills and video on Nikon’s APS-C DSLRs, its AF-P stepping motor should deliver smooth, responsive and near-silent autofocus. And with Vibration Reduction on board, you can rely on sharper imageswhenhand-holding at slower shutter speeds. All the lenses will be available from the end of June, priced £2079.99, £1299.99 and £329.99 respectively.
