Nikkor AF 20/2.8D Review

Bo Stahlbrandt (bgs)

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...

Nikon D4 review

Martin Turner (Martin Turner)

It was the year of the Olympics, and Nikon released its Olympian camera, the D4. Remember the D1, D2X, and D3? Well good! Because in order to understand the significance of the D4’s release, one needs to look back and remember how the D1 transformed the world of photography – first true digital SLR built from scratch and photojournalism was transformed forever.

General information about Nikkor macro lenses

User

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)

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...
