Key Features

A lens that withstands the elements. Designed specially for Nikon 1 AW1.
Waterproof to 15 m (49 ft)†. Shockproof from 2 m (6.6 ft)‡.

Constructed for outstanding performance to water, and rough handling, this compact zoom lens is an exceptional choice for all-around use. The focal-length coverage from medium wide-angle to medium zoom makes it an ideal “standard lens” for everything from parties to portraits, approximating the same angle of view as your eye. Never worry about sudden downpours or accidental drops with this durable and versatile 1 NIKKOR.

  • † In-house tests have demonstrated JIS/IEC Class 8 (IPX8) waterproof performance when attached to the waterproof camera.
  • ‡ Has passed in-house tests to MIL-STD 810F Method 516.5: Shock standard when attached to the waterproof camera.
  • * The risk of condensation can be reduced by attaching an optional filter (Filter AW 40.5 NC) designated specifically for use with Nikon 1 AW1. This filter is recommended when the camera is used underwater, or near water.
  • Note: Cannot change lenses underwater.

Simple and compact design for a truly refined style.

You'll appreciate the outstanding ease of use that this well-designed lens provides. Even when bundled up against the elements — such as wearing gloves while shooting underwater — operation is smooth and sure, including zooming thanks to the extra-wide zoom ring. Featuring a high-quality, metallic exterior and chic look, the lens makes the perfect partner for shooting beneath the waves, high in the mountains or out on the town. Colors and textures exactly match the three Nikon 1 AW1 bodies†.
