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

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