Nikon's 1 Nikkor 18.5mm f/1.8 Lens for CX Format is designed to give the Nikon 1 series digital camera a normal angle-of-view, which mimics the natural perspective of the human eye. The ultra-fast maximum aperture of f/1.8 makes this lens a great choice for low-light photography, and when shot wide open, is capable of exceptionally shallow depth of field.
Ultra-Fast Maximum Aperture
The speed of a lens describes its maximum aperture. The larger the aperture, the more light it lets in and, therefore, the faster the lens. At f/1.8 this lens's speed opens up new opportunities for low-light and high-speed shooting. When shooting at f/1.8, your photos and videos have extremely shallow depth of field, which means your subject will be in perfect focus, but the background will be softly blurred.
