New Patent: Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 28mm f/1.8 VR Lens

Nikon has filed a new patent for AF-S NIKKOR 28mm f/1.8 VR Lens, which would be designed for Nikon DSLR cameras with full-frame image sensors.

We know that Nikon has already released the No VR version of 28mm f/1.8G lens with a price tag of $696. So this new AF-S NIKKOR 28mm f/1.8 VR Lens seems like the VR version of the recently announced new 24mm f/1.8G ED lens with 28mm focal length. The AF-S NIKKOR 24mm f/1.8G ED is the latest addition to Nikon’s popular line of f/1.8 fixed focal length lenses and is ideal for those seeking a sharp, fast-aperture prime lens.
