Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8G ED-IF AF-S VR Nikkor review at SLR Gear

"We should note right off the bat that this lens is subject to sample variation; we tested three samples of the lens before finding what we'd call a ''good'' copy. In the other two samples, our results were quite soft and de-centered at focal lengths over 135mm. In the review copy of this lens, we found exceptional . . . read more

Nikon AF-S Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED VR review at momentcorp

"The 70-300mm VR is without a doubt a great upgrade over the Nikon AF 70-300mm f/4-5.6D ED The new VR version outperforms the older one without a problem. It's sharper, has better contrast, has VR, and the rubber seal around the mount of the lens. As far as CA is concerned the lens controls this very well. You

Nikon AF Fisheye-Nikkor 16mm f/2.8D review at momentcorp

"The Nikon 16mm f/2.8 Fisheye-Nikkor is definitely a good upgrade over the manual focus version. Sweet-spot of the lens is from f/8-f/16 in the worst case scenarios, or if you want perfection. In normal shooting conditions the sweet-spot is f/4-f/16. My main complaint is the CA and corner performance. Corner . . . read more

Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G ED review at SLR Gear

"The Nikkor 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 DX illustrates both the reason why people pay big prices for premium optics, as well as just how good you can do with a "bargain" lens if you're willing to stop down and shoot at smaller apertures.

Nikon AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.4G review at momentcorp

"Wide open the new Nikon AF-S 50mm 1.4 outperforms the AF version without a doubt. Both sharpness and contrast is way better. The auto focus is a tad slower though, not that the lens is slow on autofocus, but it is slower than the Nikon 50 f/1.4D. There is without a doubt light fall-off / vignetting wide open, and to . . . read more

Nikon AF-S DX 18-55 f/3.5-5.6 G EDII review at photodo

"The barrel of this lightweight lens is dominated by the 21mm of rubberised grip that is the zoom ring. There is an AF/MF switch in the usual place on the left, just in front of the mount and a token manual focus ring forward of the zoom ring that is some 5mm wide. The mount is constructed of engineering plastics that do seem a little more advanced than some others on the market, showing no signs of wear . . . read more

Nikon AF Nikkor 85mm f/1.8D review at momentcorp

"Quite an astonishing lens, performance is almost at top of the line. The lens outperforms it's price with ease, delivering great results. Contrast is pretty damn good even wide open. I rated this lens for portrait photography, as this is what the lens is more or less made for. I would rate it 4 out of 5 for other types of . . . read more

Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 18-105mm 3.5-5.6G ED-IF VR review at momentcorp

"Definitely worth the money, the Nikon 18-105 gives you a ton of bang for your $. It's nice to see that you can get a great performing lens for less then $310 USD. The downside to the lens is the plastic mount, which in itself is not a problem. I really doubt that a metal lens mount cost more then a few $, so I don't . . . read more

Nikon AF-S 12-24mm f/4 DX G ED review at photodo

"This lens is smaller than you would expect, especially if you have used fastish wide-angle lenses on a 35mm film body. In fact, it is not a lot bigger than the 18-70mm kit lens that Nikon make in the same DX format. The filter size of 77mm is a popular one and the lens cap is Nikon’s later version with inner grips to enable use of the cap with the supplied lens hood in place. Immediately in front of the mount is a distance . . . read more

Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 35mm f1.8G Review @ Photography blog

"The Nikon 35mm f1.8G features a Silent Wave Motor (SWM) that allows near-silent auto-focusing on all Nikon DSLRs, including those that lack an in-body focus motor (D40, D40x, D60 and D5000). Importantly, this solution allows instant manual override even when the focus mode switch is in the M/A position. . . . read more

Nikon PC-E Nikkor 24mm f/3.5D ED review at momentcorp

"The Nikon PC-E Nikkor 24mm f/3.5D ED is Nikon's first wide angle tilt and shift lens. Professionals have for decades been waiting for Nikon to release a tilt and shift wide angle lens. The only tilt and shift lens Nikon shooters have had is the 85mm PC lens, that was upgraded last year. The 24mm PC-E lens is now . . . read more

Nikon 24mm f/3.5D ED PC-E Nikkor review at SLR Gear

"The 24mm ƒ/3.5 PC-E is a very sharp lens, but for $2,000, you'd expect it to be. However, before we examine the sharpness of the lens we need to devote a paragraph or two to our testing methodology with this lens. . . . read more

Nikon AF-S Nikkor 50mm F1.4G Lens Review @ DPreview

"The AF-S Nikkor 50mm F1.4 G is Nikon's latest take on the classic 'standard lens' concept, and was introduced in September 2008. It's a replacement for the older AF-Nikkor 50mm F1.4D which we reviewed last year, with revised optics to better meet the demands of modern high-resolution full frame sensors. The optical formula is an updated version of the classic 'double Gauss' design, with an . . . read more

Nikon AF-S VR Micro-Nikkor 105mm f/2.8G IF-ED review at photodo

"The idea of introducing Nikon’s newest version of VR to a Macro lens, especially at the focal length that is most popular with photographers is a good one, taken the number of extreme close-up shots that are ruined by camera shake. Does it work? Well, yes it does and I spent a day chasing butterflies and insects to check out their claims of up to 4 stops slower shutter speeds being needed between 3m

Nikon AF-VR 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6D ED review at photodo

"This lens is delivered in its own neat padded pouch sporting both a carry strap and belt loop and provides enough protection for most circumstances. The supplied bayonet hood fits with a positive click in both the normal and the reversed positions and there is enough room in it for even large hands to remove/replace the centre-pinch lens cap despite it’s depth.

The lens inner barrel extends 10mm during focussing to the closest point of 2.3m but this does not . . . read more

Nikon AF Nikkor 28mm f/2.8D review at momentcorp

"Released back in 1994 the Nikon AF Nikkor 28mm f/2.8D is one of the older AF lenses in Nikon's lens lineup. I originally purchased this lens to get a DX equivalent to a 50mm prime, unfortunately the performance on this lens did not meet my expectations. 28mm lenses have been in Nikons lens lineup

Nikon AF-S Nikkor 35mm 1:1.8G DX review @ DPreview

"The AF-S Nikkor 35mm F1.8G DX is Nikon's latest lens, announced in February for PMA 2009. Its introduction came as something of a surprise to many observers, not because it's an updated 35mm lens with a built-in autofocus motor, but because the 'DX' designation indicates that it's designed for use on DX format bodies, and isn't fully compatible with Nikon's growing FX format camera range. . . . read more

Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 17-55mm f/2.8G IF-ED review at photodo

"The lens is a conventional, two ring zoom with internal focussing operating manually or through a SWM AF system that is both quick and silent. The AF can be over-ridden manually without the need to turn off the Auto-function. Zooming does change the lens’ physical length with the front element extending by some 18mm at the wide end. The shortest overall length is achieved at around the 35mm

Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G IF ED VR review at photodo

"This lens is smaller than expected considering it is fitted with VRII technology as well as a SWM focussing engine. The overall length increases by around 67mm when fully zoomed and this is achieved by a double trombone mechanism operated by the forward zoom ring. The rear manual focus ring is some 12mm wide, enough for a finger to adjust it with when needed. The silent wave motor that controls the

Nikon AF Nikkor 35-70mm f/2.8D review at momentcorp

"I know a lot of people complain about the coverage of this lens(especially on the DX format), I have to agree that for my use this lens is not as wide as I want either(even on a FX camera). It does however work pretty well in the whole range, better to have it perform well in the whole range then to have a wider focal

Nikon AF-Nikkor 50mm 1:1.4D review @ DP review

"The AF-Nikkor 50mm 1:1.4D is Nikon's current version of their fast 'standard' prime lens, and while this specific model was introduced in 1995, the basic optical design dates back to the manual focus 50mm 1:1.4 AI of 1977. It features a traditional layout of 7 elements in 6 groups utilizing spherical surfaces only, which Nikon claims will deliver distortion-free images with superb resolution and colour . . . read more

Nikon 200mm f/4D ED-IF AF Micro Nikkor review at SLR Gear

"It's axiomatic that good-quality prime (non-zoom) lenses do better than good-quality zooms, but this seems to be particularly the case in the Nikon lineup. The latest example of this is the phenomenal performance of the 200mm f/4 Micro-Nikkor: It's arguably the sharpest Nikkor lens we've tested to date, . . . read more

Nikon AF Micro-Nikkor 70-180mm f/4.5-5.6D ED review at momentcorp

"The Nikon Micro-Nikkor 70-180mm f/4.5-5.6D ED is an incredible lens, and there is truly nothing like it. Having the possibility to zoom on a true macro lens is very useful. Having a constant effective f/ stop on the entire focus range on a macro lens is even more useful. Combining these two features and you have a

Nikon Micro-Nikkor 60mm f/2.8 review at momentcorp

"With the release of the D3 and the D300 with their Live view mode, auto focus macro lenses are all of a sudden something a bit more interesting to own. The AF Micro-Nikkor 60mm f/2.8 is close to excellent, down side is infinity focus and softness wide-open, two things that you usually wouldn't look for in a macro . . . read more

Nikon AF-S Zoom Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8G ED-IF review at momentcorp

"All in all this is an amazing lens. The lens shows great sharpness and contrast, and may well be the standard to compare mid range zoom lenses from now on. The New 24-70 is usable beyond f/16 on the Nikon D3, something you usually don't see in new lenses. I don't have any problems using this lens on . . . read more

Nikon AF-S Nikkor 80-200mm f/2.8D ED-IF review at momentcorp

"I really like this lens, it outperforms the Nikon AF 80-200mm f/2.8D in everything, except price maybe. Not much more to say about this lens, performance is outstanding. If you can get your hands on this lens for a fair price, it's a winner. The AF-S 80-200mm f/2.8 does not have any problems on the FX format, like the

Nikon AF-S 12-24mm f/4G ED-IF DX review at momentcorp

"The lens is close to perfect, but there is just so many nit-picks that does not make it perfect. For one the price, you are paying for a "pro" grade lens, but you are not getting one. For the high price you would expect a f/2.8 aperture, instead Nikon gave us f/4. The amount of CA is also disappointing, but it's not . . . read more

Nikon AF-S VR Nikkor 70-200mm 1:2.8G review @ DP review

"Nikon first announced the development of the AF-S VR Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8G ED-IF in February 2002, with the lens becoming available to buy in April 2003. Billed by Nikon as a 'compact, lightweight' fast telephoto, the lens features a complex optical design of 21 elements in 15 groups, including no fewer than 5 Extra-low Dispersion (ED) elements for the correction of aberrations. It improves on . . . read more

Nikon 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G AF-S VR DX NIKKOR review @ DP review

"Nikon was one of the first camera manufacturers to design digital-specific lenses matched to the DX sensor size, but then seemed somewhat reluctant to produce a true budget standard 'kit' zoom, finally succumbing with its original 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 to accompany the launch of the D50 in April 2005. This lens was updated to a mark II version with the release of the D40 in November 2006, featuring . . . read more

Nikon 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G IF-ED AF-S VR DX @ DP review

"The Nikon 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G IF-ED AF-S VR DX Nikkor was introduced in November 2005, and rapidly became a much sought-after lens for the Nikon shooter's armoury. With its hugely useful 11.1x focal length range, 'silent wave' focusing, and Nikon's second generation vibration reduction system to combat camera shake, this lens aims to be the ultimate single-lens 'walkaround' solution, . . . read more
