Exploring NIKKOR Lenses: Mongolia – AF-S NIKKOR 20mm f/1.8G ED

Located in the heart of Mongolia’s capital city, Ulaanbaatar, the Gandantegchinlen or ‘Gandan’ Monastery is a place where one can seek peace and tranquillity. Its Tibetan name translates to the "Great Place of Complete Joy". First constructed in 1809, the Gandan Monastery is the only monastery to survive the communist regime and has been under state protection since 1994.

To capture the grandiosity of the Gandan Monastery, Scott and Chantal used the ultra-wide-angle AF-S NIKKOR 20mm f/1.8G ED. With a focal length of 20mm, this lens covers a 94° angle of view with FX-format cameras and 70° angle of view with DX-format cameras, offering great flexibility to shoot from an extensive range of perspectives even in limited spaces.

Designed with advanced NIKKOR optics, the AF-S NIKKOR 20mm f/1.8G ED comes with Nano Crystal Coat to help reduce ghosting and flare effects, resulting in sharp photographs from edge to edge.

Whether you’re photographing interiors or vast landscapes, the compact and lightweight AF-S NIKKOR 20mm f/1.8G ED delivers exceptional optical performance.
