Nikkor AF 20/2.8D Review

Bo Stahlbrandt (bgs) on November 12, 2012

The 20mm/2.8D AF lens is interesting, whether on 35mm film or on FX digital format. With it you can go out taking landscape shots without getting fish-eyed while still getting more or less the whole view at 94 degrees. You can also use it for "environmental portraits", having a humble object somewhere in the middle of the frame and all of the interesting surroundings too. Read more...

General information about Nikkor macro lenses

Hendric Schneider (Hendric) on October 14, 2011

Nikon's macro lenses have always had a special appeal to me and to many other photographers. These specialized lenses, of superior optics, combined with close focusing capabilities to actual size ratios, or even larger ratios with extension devices such as a bellows or extension tubes, can go far and beyond the call of duty.

Nikkor AF-S 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR Review

Mike Hagen (Mike_Hagen) on June 16, 2011

Nikon’s newest super zoom, the 28-300mm has big shoes to fill considering Nikon’s history for creating some of the sharpest lenses in the world. Nikon has been making great zoom lenses for many years and created a cult-like following with their famous DX 18-200mm f3.5 – f5.6. The lure of a super zoom is that you can buy just one lens for travel and you won’t need to carry along a bag full of gear. Read more...

Nikon D700 Picture Control

J. Ramon Palacios (jrp) on September 6, 2010

I thought for long that pre-set modes/settings were of little or no practical use for those of us who shoot RAW (NEF), in Manual Exposure Mode and always post-process even if minimally. The D700 has taught me otherwise. Read more...
