    Nikon Showcase Nikkor 25-50mm f/4 ai-s

    Looks like another lens without a showcase thread. I had my first outing with it yesterday, on a dreary winters day. I quite enjoyed using it, although sometime while adjusting the focal length with heavy gloves on, I would accidentally move the aperture a bit. At the 25mm end, it needs a...

    Nikon Showcase Nikkor ai-s 20mm f/3.5

    I didn’t see a showcase for this lens, and my first outing was with it yesterday. More pics to come, but I REALLY like this lens. It needs a little tweaking in post to bring out the best in it, but that’s limited to things like vignetting and contrast, not distortion.

    Nikon Nikon Telephoto AF Micro Nikkor 105mm F/2.8 D?

    Obviously this lens is optimised for Macro shooting but how good is it as a regular short tele? I'm thinking of adding a couple of more AF D lenses to my Nikon collection and while some (35/2, 50/1.4) are obvious, this length is not so much. I'd be using it on both my N90s & D7100. Thanks!

    Lens AF-S NIKKOR 18-200MM 1 3.5-5.6 G ED

    I bought this lens on the recommendation of Mr. Rockwell, Ken. I wanted an lens with a wide range. Mr. Rockwell raved about this lens on his review board. I have this lens and it's giving me a hard time. Maybe I'm doing something wrong. What is the sweet spot? ie f5.6-f9? When should I use...

    Lens AF MICRO NIKKOR 105MM 1:2.8 D

    Hi I purchased this lens used on eBay. It works perfectly fine. But I discovered something yesterday that is a bit disturbing. I think this is mould on the rear element. Inside for sure because I tried cleaning it. But it wouldn't go away. I have screwdrivers (precision) and the lens...

    Manual Lens Have the prices of Nikkor 35mm f1.8 LTM lenses gone insane?

    I have three of these lenses, pristine. I have not priced them recently. I also have a LTM Nikkor 85mm f1.5 too. I cannot find any listings for these lenses. I see one 35mm 1.8 with an asking price of $7500 on eBay. I see some sold 85mm 1.5's for over $3500. Are these the going rates now? I...

    Leica Nikkor, LTM & usual suspects

    So a bit back I bought a Nikkor HC 50/2 and it was a little off. The resident guru fixed it with the usual consummate ease and I picked up a Nikkor QC 135/3.5 from him at the same time. Between weather and such foibles, the long awaited (well it _felt_ long ;) ) box arrived today. While running...

    Nikon Showcase Nikon AF Nikkor 35-135mm f3.5-4.5

    One of the dumbest thing I've done in my life... a crime.. That's, when I decided, a few years ago, that I'm capable of disassembling an AF lens! All that, because of a few spots on the front lens element, that only created a few flares (sometimes interesting)! I ripped the flat cables in the...

    Nikon Showcase Nikon AF-P NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6E ED VR

    I recently picked up one of these and am very happy with it. This is on a Z5 via FTZ. Output is very nice. AF speed is snappy. It's long on the front with the FTZ but pretty light in weight. Very good value imo. Especially with the current sale. There are compatibility guidelines and some...

    Manual Lens Nikkor-Q 135/2.8 vs 135/3.5

    The first vintage Nikkor I bought for Df was the Nikkor-Q.C 135mm f/2.8. With its four elements its design is what @BrianS calls a "unique formula". Not necessarily a Sonnar but it's not a double-Gauss either. Fast forward to this year and I was buying the Nikkor 135mm f/3.5 because of its...

    Manual Lens Nikon Nikkor 200mm f/4: Micro vs Non-Micro?

    Any conceivable reason to choose the non-micro f/4 lens over the Micro-Nikkor 200mm f/4?

    Nikon 1 V2 with a Nikkor AF-S 55-200 VR II

    First outings today with my new Nikkor AF-S 55-200 VR II on the 1 V2. Very pleased with the results, especially considering I learned when I came back in the house that the VR switch was set to "OFF". I also need to learn how to tweak the focus manually, as the lens kept locking onto twigs just...

    Nikon Showcase Nikkor AF-D 28~105 F3.5~4.5, Aspheric Optics, Internal Focus

    The recent Thread on the AF-Nikkor 28~85 F3.5~F4.5 made me miss my old lens, traded off almost 25 years ago against my first Nikon Rangefinder Kit. That lens was ~$450 in 1991. I have zoom lenses, but not an AF wide~short telephoto. Last Summer vacation- such a lens would have been handy. It's...

    Sony A7s with nikkor 35mm f2d

    The A7s seems to have recently dropped in used prices, so I was able to get one from for a pretty good deal. I have been wanting to try one for some time, but wasn't sure it could compete with may A7ii. What I have found so far is that I prefer the size of the A7s as well as the...
