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...

The Nikon F4 Review

J. Ramon Palacios (jrp) on June 24, 2010

My Nikon journey started early. First I had a Nikomat FS (1965). Then a Nikkormat FT2 (1975) with integrated meter. Upgrading brought me into the FE2 (1983) and the fun of the MD-12 speed winders. Later, the Nikon N4004s (1989), the N6006 (1990) and then the great N8008s (introduced in 1991). So with my own cameras and my father's 1959 Nikon F I lived the Nikon tradition hands-on. However, even that did not prepare me for the F4. Read more...

Nikkor AF-S 17-35mm/2.8D ED IF Review

J. Ramon Palacios (jrp) on January 25, 2002

As my partner Bo Stahlbrandt said, "most obviously the F5 is one of the killer SLR 35mm bodies on the market". Now the question was, after the immense pleasure of buying one, with what lenses to arm the killer. Read more...

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...

Nikon D4 review

Martin Turner (Martin Turner) on April 16, 2012

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.
