Nikon adds midrange 28mm to its lens lineup

It seems odd that Nikon didn't have a fast 28mm prime in its portfolio. Now it does.

Nikon's midrange 28mm f1.8 lens Nikon USA

In addition to introducing its latest entry-level dSLR today, Nikon also debuted a new lens targeted at video shooters and D800 adopters. The fast, midrange 28mm f1.8 lens incorporates the company's Nano Crystal Coat, and Nikon claims it's designed to resolve on high-resolution sensors. Although the press release didn't mention how many aperture blades it has, I think we can assume that it's got a round iris.

The lens is slated to ship at the end of May for $699.95.
