Nikon 1 CX 6.7-13mm f/3.5-5.6 VR

The first ultra wide-angle zoom lens for the Nikon 1 system lets you stay close to your subject and still fit everything in.

Like all 1 Nikon lenses, it provides the perfect balance of portability, power, speed, and quality. With a minimum focal length of 6.7 mm, this lens is ideal for emphasizing the sheer scale of an impressive landscape, great for fitting the whole family into a group shot, and tailor-made for capturing beautifully sharp compositions of architectural interiors.

This compact, lightweight lens is an excellent way to expand your Nikon 1 system.

Ultra-wide-angle zoom lens with a focal length of 6.7-13mm

1 Nikon VR 6.7-13mm f/3.5-5.6 covers an extensive range of angles of view from an ultra-wide angle of 100° to a regular wide angle of 63°, which is equivalent to an approx. 18 to 35 mm focal length in 35mm [135] format. With this broad angle of view, you can capture magnificent vistas and the ambience of a scene in your picture. This lens is ideal for creating an impressive image with an emphasized perspective.

Expansive perspective achieved only by an ultra-wide angle lens

In addition to capturing a wider view of the scene, the ultra-wide angle can create a sense of depth and expansiveness by emphasizing the perspective between foreground and background subjects within the frame. In this photo, the distant horizon is captured while the camera maintains its focus on the foreground. This effectively enhances the perspective and delivers expansiveness to the picture.

100° angle of view that makes a small space look wide

Even when shooting in a limited space such as indoors and narrow corridors, 1 Nikon VR 6.7-13mm f/3.5-5.6's ultra-wide angle of view covers more people and surroundings. You can create a distinctive photo by capturing your subjects with more background and even the ambience of the site. The sample photo (below, right) effectively reproduces the atmosphere of the site by capturing the background widely to enhance perspective.

More flexible compositions made possible with wide-angle shots

With the wide angle of view, you can shoot a building, even if it towers over you, emphasizing the perspective. Wide-angle shots that impressively express the background depth can also be achieved even for subjects at a close distance. This lens delivers an unlimited variety of photographic expressions, as you can explore different compositions with diverse subjects utilizing its wide angle of view.
Taking advantage of this lens' significantly short minimum focus distance, a dynamic close-up like this image can be created. It gives a strong impression depicting the delicate texture of the metal surface of sealing stamps.

Easy-to-carry, compact body

1 Nikon VR 6.7-13mm f/3.5-5.6 comes in an amazingly compact body for such a high performance, ultra-wide-angle lens incorporating a Vibration Reduction (VR) function. Its lightweight body of approx. 125 g (4.5 oz) can be easily taken anywhere.

Fine and sharp reproduction

This lens consistently achieves a high-quality picture whether it is a closeup or a distant shot. With its high resolving power, finely realistic reproduction can be attained.
In the sample photo (below, left), the glossy texture of coffee beans is finely depicted. The other photo provides a clear, sharp reproduction of a house, realistically portraying unique details of the walls.

Vibration Reduction (VR) function is incorporated to minimize image blur caused by camera shake

1 Nikon VR 6.7-13mm f/3.5-5.6 comes equipped with a VR function. Under low-light conditions where slower shutter speeds must be used, slight camera shake is likely to cause image blur. This can be minimized by the VR function.
The image at right is reproduced without blur supported by the VR function, despite the dimly lit location.
Even tiny scratches on the metal surface are finely depicted.

High-quality, metallic exterior design

1 Nikon VR 6.7-13mm f/3.5-5.6 comes in a body that brings out the beauty of metal with its fine design details such as roulette, fine glossy line, and spinning (hairline) processing. The zoom ring with its metallic roulette, as well as its compact body, helps it fit well in your hands and delivers comfortable operability. You can smoothly operate the ring for flawless zooming. The lens barrel, which extends when zooming, is the same color as the lens body.
