NiSi 9mm f/2.8 Announced

NiSi 9mm f/2.8: B&H Photo / Amazon

The details of the NiSi 9mm f/2.8 were first leaked here, but the lens has now been officially announced.


New: NiSi 9mm F/2.8 ultra-wide angle for APS-C mirrorless cameras
The Transcontinenta Group, distributor NiSi Benelux, introduces the all-new NiSi 9mm F2.8 ultra-wide angle for APS-C Sony FE, Canon RF, Nikon Z and Fuji-X mirrorless cameras as well as M4/3 cameras.

NiSi has long been known among professional photographers as one of the best manufacturers of high-quality “square” filters and filter holders for almost every camera brand and type of lens.  In recent years, NiSi has expanded its range to include circular filters, filters for luxury compact cameras from Sony, Ricoh and Fuji, a NiSi Close-up Lens Kit and an NM-180 Macro Focusing Rail. In early 2021, NiSi took the next step, using its technological know-how in manufacturing high-quality glass in developing NiSi’s first lens, the NiSi 15mm F4.0 for full-frame mirrorless cameras. Today, with the 9mm F2.8, NiSi presents the second ultra-wide-angle lens with an angle of view of a whopping 113 degrees, for APS-C and M4/3 mirrorless cameras.

Made for the creative and demanding photographer
When designing the NiSi 9mm F2.8 ultra-wide angle, NiSi listened very carefully to the wishes and input of dozens of professional photographers who work with NiSi filters on their (wide-angle) lenses almost every day. For example, the optical design of this APS-C NiSi 9mm lens is completely tailored to the sensor in the mirrorless camera, so that image sharpness remains high from the centre to the edges of the image. The use of high-quality optical glass, four ED lens elements and a double aspherical element, not only ensure high detail sharpness, but also greatly reduce chromatic aberration and distortion. The lens is also well-corrected against distortion of bright points in the image (coma), making it ideal for astrophotography.  NiSi’s in-house developed SA+ anti-reflection coating, protective hard coating, metal housing and metal bayonet ensure successful shots in a wide variety of conditions. NiSi has equipped the lens with a 10-blade, continuously adjustable aperture, making it possible to get a “sun star” at any aperture, from F2.8 to F16. This increases image sharpness, so diffraction can be avoided by having to stop down too far! Read More »
