Shoot in the dimmest lighting conditions without a flash or softly blur the backgrounds of your photos and videos with the first f/1.8 lens in the 1 NIKKOR lineup. 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.
Master low light and depth of field 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, the 1 NIKKOR 18.5mm f/1.8 is the fastest lens in the 1 NIKKOR lineup. This speed opens up new opportunities for low-light and high-speed shooting so you can capture brilliant shots while the light is waning. But that's not all. When shooting at f/1.8, your photos and videos have extremely shallow depth of field—your subject will be in perfect focus, but its background will be softly blurred. Use that effect to create flattering portraits, to draw attention to a particular area in your shots and much more.
Focus as close as 8.4-inches from your subject Combine 1 NIKKOR 18.5mm f/1.8's speed and depth of field control with an enhanced close focusing capability (just 8.4-inches), and you can get more creative than ever. Change your perspective—get close to a flower blossom for a stunning macro-style shot. Set your aperture to f/1.8, then bring the flower petals into crystal-clear focus while the surroundings fade into a soft, beautifully blurred texture. The 1 NIKKOR 18.5mm f/1.8 gives you creative freedom from any distance.
