Life From A New Perspective
Ultra-wide-angle views and close focusing
With an ultra-wide-angle view that surpasses any kit lens, the AF-P DX NIKKOR 10-20mm f/4.5-5.6G VR lets you play with composition in a new way—foreground, middle ground, background, symmetry, patterns, lines, dramatic skies and more. Get as close as 9.6" / 244mm from your subject to create photos and videos with dramatic leading lines or to capture tight interior spaces with ease.
- Ultra-wide-angle view that surpasses any kit lens lets you get creative
- Compact, lightweight, durable design that's great for travel and outings
- Outstanding optics deliver beautiful photos & videos in challenging situations
- Near-silent autofocus stepping motor is ideal for recording video
- Vibration Reduction (VR) image stabilization keeps handheld photos and videos sharp and helps with low-light shooting
Small in Size, Big in Quality
Despite its super compact, lightweight design, the AF-P DX NIKKOR 10-20mm f/4.5-5.6G VR delivers huge performance. Vibration Reduction (VR) image stabilization ensures sharper handheld photos and videos and lets you use a slower shutter speed for brighter photos in low light.
Three Aspherical (AS) Lens Elements nearly eliminates naturally occurring distortion and contributes to the lens' lightweight, compact design. Super Integrated Coating (SIC) cuts through ghosting and lens flare in backlit or cross-lit situations; retains maximum color and contrast. A 7-blade aperture design gives your photo and video backgrounds a beautifully soft, round blurring effect.
Do Not Disturb Your Subject
Near-silent, fast autofocus stepping motor
The AF-P DX NIKKOR 10-20mm f/4.5-5.6G VR focuses like a dream. When shooting video, its smooth stepping motor keeps focusing noise to a minimum. If you need to make adjustments, you’ll appreciate the silky smooth manual operation.
To eliminate unintentional changes to the VR ON/OFF and AF/MF settings, those controls have been moved to the camera menu, and their status can be easily verified in your camera’s information display.
Auto-Manual Mode uses a mechanism in the lens barrel. Smooth focusing operation in Manual mode is used with conventional manual-focus lenses.
A lens with a curved, non-spherical surface. Used to reduce aberrations and enable a more compact lens size. Aspherical lenses minimize coma and other types of lens aberrations, even when used at the widest aperture.
They are particularly useful in correcting distortion in wide-angle lenses and help contribute to a lighter, more compact design by reducing the number of standard (spherical) elements necessary. Aspherical lens elements correct these distortions by continuously changing the refractive index from the center of the lens.
NIKKOR lens in which only the internal lens group shifts during focusing. Thus, IF NIKKORS do not change in size during AF operation, allowing for compact, lightweight lenses capable of closer focusing distances.
These lenses will be designated with the abbreviation IF on the lens barrel.
Select NIKKOR lenses have a focusing mode which allows switching from automatic to manual focusing with virtually no lag time by simply turning the focusing ring on the lens.
This makes it possible to seamlessly switch to fine manual focusing while looking through the viewfinder.
Nikon's "P" series of NIKKOR lenses use a pulse motor (utilizing stepping motors) to focus smoother and quieter than previous drive systems. This quiet drive system makes the lenses ideal for use when shooting video.
Super Integrated Coating
Nikon's Super Integrated Coating is a multilayer coating precisely applied layer after layer on the optical elements in NIKKOR lenses.
A Nikon in-lens technology that improves image stability by automatically compensating for camera shake. Lenses that offer VR will feature the abbreviation VR on the lens barrel.

- Due to AF-P lenses not having a VR on/off switch on the lens, if the lens has VR then the body cannot de-activate the VR function because it does not have a menu VR on/off option.
If the lens has the ability to retract (ex. 18-55mm AF-P lens) and the camera is turned on with the lens retracted, the camera will display a "lens not attached" or the "Fxx" message until the lens is opened for use.
Due to AF-P lenses not having an AF on/off switch on the lens, the AF/M switch on the body must be used to activate manual focus.
