Nikon has added a trio of new wide-angle lenses for full frame and crop-sensor DSLRs, including its first fisheye zoom.

AF-P DX NIKKOR 10-20mm f/4.5-5.6G VR
The new NIKKOR 10-20mm delivers 3.5 stops of Vibration Reduction (VR). It uses Pulse Motor technology for AF operation. It can focus on objects as close as 8.6 inches and focuses internally. It has a seven blade aperture and stops down to f/29.

Look for the 10-20mm in June for $310. It is available for pre-order now.

AF-S Fisheye NIKKOR 8-15mm f/3.5-4.5E ED
Nikon’s first fisheye zoom, this FX-format lens delivers a 180-degree vertical / horizontal angle of view on full frame cameras, and zooms to a non-circular fisheye view (180-degree diagonal angle of view) on the long end of the focal range. It features internal focusing, an electromagnetic diaphragm and fluorine coating on the front of the lens.

You’ll enjoy close focusing up to .5 inches from the front of the lens and a weather-sealed build. There are seven aperture blades and the lens stops down to f/29.

The 8-15mm fisheye is available now for $1,250.

AF-S NIKKOR 28mm f/1.4E ED
The new AF-S NIKKOR 28mm f/1.4E ED prime sports a nine blade aperture and is weather sealed with fluorine coating on the front element. It stops down to f/16 and can focus on objects as close as .92 feet from the lens with a reproduction ratio of .17x.

The AF-S 28mm will ship in June for $2,000. It is available for pre-order now.
