Nikon AI-S I ZØ

The preferred glass of photojournalists and fine-art photographers alike, Nikon’s AI and AI-S lenses dominated the 35mm SLR market in the 1970’s and 80’s. Their particular blend of technical excellence and soulful rendering separated Nikon primes from the competition then and provide a uniquely subtle and faithful option to cinematographers now.

These lenses are known for good contrast, strong color, modest flares, and gentle halation when shot wide open.
