Types of Nikon Lenses

Types of Nikon Lenses

The evolution of Nikon lenses has seen a dramatic change over the years. The original F-mount lens was released into the market in 1959 and these are commonly referred to as Pre-AI. Since then, Nikon added a feature known as Aperture Indexing (AI). Most AI lenses will mount perfectly on current Nikon bodies. In 1986, Nikon launched its first ever autofocus lens which revolutionised the way photography was viewed. 

Lenses from Nikon

Nikon has produced a number of different types of lenses, all of which can be used in a variety of situations. For instance:

1) Nikkor AF-S 50mm f/1.4G is an ideal lens for portraits, wedding and low light photography.

Choosing a Nikon Lens for D-SLRs

The choice of a lens for your D-SLR is best considered after you have chosen what you intend to photograph. The type of sensor format in your camera plays a crucial role in deciding; either a DX or FX format. You must then decide on whether you want to go for a zoom or fixed focal length lens. A zoom lens will give you a certain versatility as it allows you to shoot a variety of different subjects. A fixed focal length lens is light and easy to carry around; they are used for a specific purpose and have a more complex lens group.

Buying from the right vendor

If you are looking to buy a new Nikon Lens for your camera, it is advisable to avoid what is known as the ‘gray market.’ Buying a lens from the ‘gray market’ usually means that the lens is not a genuine Nikon product. You can tell because this product will have only a one year guarantee on it, whereas a genuine Nikon Lens will have at least a five year guarantee.
