Nikkor optics

At the heart of every DL series camera is an exceptional Nikkor lens, carefully chosen for its flexibility across a wide range of styles and applications, from stunning macro to super-telephoto. Each DL lens utilizes the same state-of-the-art technologies found in Nikon’s heralded DSLR lenses—from ED Glass to eliminate distortion, ghosting and aberrations to Fluorine Coating to repel dust, water and more.
