There are a few different things to consider when looking for cheap lenses for Nikon cameras. First, consider what type of photography you plan to do most often. If you plan to do a lot of low-light photography, then you will want to look for a lens with a large maximum aperture.
Second, consider what type of subjects you plan to photograph most often. If you plan to photograph a lot of landscapes, then you will want a wide-angle lens. Third, consider what focal length you plan to use most often.
If you plan to do a lot of close-up photography, then you will want a lens with a shorter focal length. Lastly, consider what type of budget you have to work with. If you have a limited budget, then you may want to consider buying a used lens.

Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1. 4G Lens: It’s been years since I’ve used a 50mm and I hadn’t thought a lot about it really until I started seeing these gorgeous images from my friend. It seems like every time I saw something that made me wonder, it was the 50mm.
Add to that some difficulties I have lifting and the desire to have a 50 becomes apparent. We went out last week and this is all I brought for the first couple of days. I needed to make a portrait for her and though this might not be the best portrait lens, she was in a ‘make do’ way, so we made do.
They’re actually kind of nice. What’s in focus is tack sharp and the rest is creamy mush. Not instantly like the 200 I have, but it gets soft pretty quickly. Then mush. I went straight for f1. 4 and there was just enough DOF to cover her face and her shirt and enough of her hair.
The one thing I did notice is that I have some green fringing in some of the softer but not mushy areas like the hair and one shoulder and a little bit on the rock right behind her. I’m not worried about it.
It’s a forest shot but it is worth keeping an eye on. I’ve only had this out the once, but I really look forward to using it some more.
Let me start by saying I love this lens. I probably use it the most, maybe as much as my 24-70 Nikon. I have an older 85mm Nikon 1. 4, but it doesn’t autofocus with my Nikon mirrorless as it has the older autofocus system where you need the motor in the camera.
I got this lens to replace it and wasn’t sure what to expect. After having used it on several shoots now, I can say I’m in love with this lens. It isn’t crazy sharp at 1. 8, but stopping down to 2-2.
5 wakes this lens up a ton. The out of focus areas are very pleasant to my eye, and it shoots video very well. The lens is very light, but doesn’t feel too cheap either. It goes very well with my Nikon Z5.
I love that the front doesn’t extend at all during focus, and that there is a rubber gasket around the mount. The cheaper Canon lenses don’t have this, so it’s a nice touch. The price of this lens was very reasonable, and it is quickly becoming my go-to lens when I don’t need a wide shot.
My ultimate set up would be a 24-70, which I already have, a 70-200 2. 8, and 85mm prime and a 35 mm prime. I’m half-way to my dream collection and I’m glad this lens is part of it. I would like the 1.
4 more I think, but you can’t go wrong with this lens for the price and quality you’re getting.
Widen your vision with an f/2. 8 ultrawide zoom that defies convention. A versatile 17mm%26 #x2013;28mm focal length range. A coveted fixed f/2. 8 aperture with all its spectacular lowlight, speed and depth of field capabilities.
Liberating in close working spaces. Exhilarating in vast open spaces. Light and tough enough to take anywhere. From vlogging to starscapes, this is a lens for telling epic stories.
Though this review is about the Nikkor Z 24-120 f4 S lens, I begin with my favorite workhorse lens: my Nikkor Z 24-70 f2. 8 S lens which I have owned and used heavily for over a year. The 24-70 has exceptional sharpness (even out to the edges) and its maximum aperture of 2.
8 has been very helpful for low-light event photography. Yet I was intrigued by this new 24-120 for the reasons so many other contributors here have mentioned: compared to the 24-70 it is lighter with extended reach and many claimed it is nearly as sharp.
After long thought I decided to purchase the 24-120 with the plan to test it very carefully and then compare it to my workhorse 24-70. On a Z7, the 24-70 does have a bit better sharpness out at the edges and its bokeh (at 2.
8 and 4) is decidedly smoother than the 24-120 (whose bokeh at f4 for out-of-focus foreground detail is at times edgy and jittery with strong onion skinning in background out-of-focus detail). My first inclination was I could not accept those few weaknesses of the 24-120 and would return it.
Yet after much more comparison with various styles of shots (landscapes, interiors, near-macros and more) I saw that the 24-120 is VERY sharp (and in all shots as sharp or nearly as sharp and in some cases seemingly sharper than the 24-70), silently focuses very rapidly and reliably, is noticeably lighter (useful for this 64 year old) and most notably has that extra reach from 70-120 in which range it performs wonderfully! So with some surprise and much satisfaction I have decided to keep the 24-120 and have now sold my former standard: the Z 24-70 f2.
8. As a previous contributor here wrote, this is the new standard (at least for me) and I could not be happier. Thank you, Nikon, and thank you B&H.
The AF-S NIKKOR 85mm f/1. 8G Lens from Nikon is a fast, compact FX-format prime medium telephoto lens. Though optimized for FX-format DSLR cameras, the lens is equally adept at serving any Nikon DX-format DSLR.
The combination of its mid-range telephoto design and a fast f/1. 8 aperture make it an excellent option for shooting both still images and HD video in low light scenarios. Available light shooters will love the wide-open effect when shooting intimate portraits; in-focus subjects will stay sharp, while distracting backgrounds will melt into a pleasing soft blur.
When mounted on a DX-format DSLR, this 85mm prime delivers an apparent focal length of approximately 127mm. The lens boasts Silent Wave Motor technology (AFS) and Internal Focus for fast and quiet autofocus that won’t alter the length of the lens, thus preserving working distance throughout the focus range.
The Silent Wave Motor utilizes ultrasonic (inaudible) vibrations instead of a gear system to focus the lens, offering beautifully smooth, silent and accurate autofocus operation. When fine manual focusing is required, just rotate the lens focus ring.
The M/A mode switch offers a seamless override of the AF system with practically no time lag at all! Nikon’s Super Integrated Coating (SIC) improves light transmission and provides better color consistency and minimized flare.
The AF-S 85mm f/1. 8 is lightweight, fast, and easy to tote around. Weighing in at 8. 0 oz less than the venerable 85mm f/1. 4 – shooters that favor prime lenses can toss this optic in their gear bag without hesitation – it’s small enough and light enough to take along everywhere!.
I was very hesitant about this lens as I had read many mixed reviews on it, but I can safely say this lens has become one of my absolute favorites – and that’s saying a lot as I have some of Nikon’s and Sigma’s finest glass they make (Nikon 24-70G, Nikon 85 1.
8g, Sigma 70-200, etc). The one oddity I noticed with this lens when shooting it wide open (at 1. 4) was that it did terribly on paper (calibration paper tests) but as soon as I started running test shots on people, specifically their eyes, it’s TACK sharp.
I can honestly say that I’ve not had a lens perform so poorly with the calibration chart but then blow me away with actual in-person tests! 100% crops I have no issues at all making out all the individual eyelash details (and then some).
And the raw files that come out with this lens are to die for! Just love everything about this little guy. oh and on that topic. this thing is so compact it’s actually a joy to carry around, unlike some of my other 6 pound lenses.
This is a lens that you will absolutely love after you give it some time and practice. One item of caution – it does have terrible chromatic aberration when wide open, but for the most part, that’s fixable in post.
Can’t say enough good things about this lens. I’ve attached a landscape shot I took with it the other week.
Sleek yet long-reaching, the Nikon NIKKOR Z DX 50-250mm f/4. 5-6. 3 VR is a 75-375mm-equivalent zoom designed for DX-format Z-mount mirrorless cameras. Spanning a versatile range of telephoto focal lengths, this zoom is well-suited for working with distant subjects as well as portraiture applications.
Its optical design incorporates one extra-low dispersion element, which greatly helps to reduce a color fringing and chromatic aberrations for greater clarity and color rendering. A Super Integrated Coating has also been applied to minimize ghosting and flare for increased contrast and color accuracy in bright and backlit conditions.
Its reach is also benefitted by Vibration Reduction image stabilization, which minimizes the appearance of camera shake by up to 5 stops for sharper handheld shooting. A stepping motor provides quick, quiet, and precise autofocus performance along with full-time manual focus override to suit both stills and video applications.
Also, a programmable control ring can be set for intuitive adjustment over a variety of camera and exposure settings.
The Nikon NIKKOR Z 14-30mm f/4 S Zoom Lens is a travel and landscape photographers go-to lens for establishing a sense of place and pushing perspective. Capable of scenic photography thats consistently sharp throughout the entire frame.
Video so clean and smooth it rivals real life and elevates the look and feel of camera movement. Get a closer look of perfection with 14 elements including four Extra-Low Dispersion (ED) glass elements four aspherical lens elements and the application of Nikons very own Nano Crystal Coat.
The maximum aperture is fixed at f/4 at any zoom setting so photographers can shoot at faster shutter speeds without raising sensitivity even in relatively dark scenes. The easy-to-carry lightweight body employs a lens mechanism that can extend/retract the lens via zoom ring rotation without pressing a button.
And for the first time in a full-frame ultra-wide lens the creative and practical flexibility of attachable filters.
The Nikkor Z 24-50mm F/4-6. 3 Lens is the shortest and lightest lens amongst the full-frame mirrorless range, making it an ideal lens for travelling, street photography or full-day shoots. Boasting extreme colour accuracy, advanced autofocus and an easy-to-use control ring this is a lens that will allow you to capture unbelievably clean and sharp images.
Superior Performance With the Z mount system’s large 55mm size, short flange focal distance of 16mm and constant minimum focal distance of 0. 35m, you can confidently shoot any scene, with each subject being constant at any focal length.
By utilising two extra-low dispersion (ED) glass elements, chromatic aberration and colour bleeding are reduced, meaning you will be continually producing crystal-clear images. Smooth Control The advanced autofocus mechanism which uses a stepping motor and an electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism prevents the recording of the lens drive and operation sounds when you’re recording.
The control ring is extremely smooth and easy to use, offering the ability to assign preferred functions for quick access. Versatile focal length The 24-50mm focal length offers versatility for your shoots, allowing you to capture everything from portraits to landscapes.

It weighs in at a tiny 195g, and its buttonless, retractable mechanism is just 51mm.
First, I am not new to photography, buying this kit lens as a toe dip into Z water. I have 5 Nikon bodies and 40 lenses. I bought the Z5 as a walkaround / travel solution. I use other bodies for low light, sports, nature and macro photography.
I also bought the Z5 because it adds vibration reduction to my wonderful old F mount prime (and zoom) lenses using the FTZ adapter. So, let’s recognize the concerns with the Nikkor Z 24-50 f/4-6. 3; it is expensive, plastic, has a small aperture that is not extremely sharp when fully open.
Also, important to me, it doesn’t offer great bokeh. Here’s why it works for me; it is very compact, light, has a wide 24mm view, and can go to 75mm in DX mode, focuses accurately, is very sharp when the aperture is closed down.
a good walkaround solution. If I want bokeh I also have large aperture, very accurate 40mm and 55 mm Z mount compact primes. And finally, I have many other legacy lens options with the FTZ. Some are larger zooms; you hardly notice the FTZ adapter with them.
As to the slow aperture, the Z5 sensor is so sensitive that the higher ISO’s have little noise; low light is not a problem, nor encountered often in walkaround photography. I got my new, white box copy of this lens at a large discount on eBay, so the expensive part went away.
I am grateful to Nikon for offering this wonderful, compact solution that fits in so well with the rest of my Nikon gear. It meets my needs very well.
All-in-one zoom covers wide-angle to telephoto fields of view and is designed for FX-format Z-mount mirrorless cameras, however can also be used with DX cameras where it will provide a 36-300mm equivalent focal length range.
Two aspherical elements and one aspherical ED element is used to reduce spherical aberrations and distortion in order to realize sharp imagery with accurate rendering. Two extra-low dispersion elements greatly reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations throughout the zoom range in order to produce greater clarity and color rendering.
ARNEO and Nano Crystal Coats are used to prevent ghosting, reflections, and flare in order to realize improved contrast and clarity when working in strong lighting and backlit conditions. The Nano Crystal Coat controls incidental light from a diagonal direction while the ARNEO Coat controls incidental light from a vertical direction.
A Super Integrated Coating is also featured on multiple elements to help ensure consistently accurate colors. Stepping motor delivers impressively smooth, quiet, and fast autofocus performance that is well-suited to both stills and video applications.
Full-time manual focus override is also possible and an internal focusing design is used, where only the internal lens groups are moved during focusing, to maintain the overall length of the lens during use and to promote faster focusing speeds.
Vibration Reduction image stabilization minimizes the appearance of camera shake by up to 5 stops for sharper handheld shooting.

TL;DR: Good: I can now take bright photos indoors and in overcast conditions. Bad: I have to take three or four steps back to take in the view that the old wide-angle 18mm kit lens used to. This 35mm f/1.
8 lens does what I want it to – take bright pictures in low-light conditions without a flash – but I have to learn its strengths and weaknesses. I bought this to supplement the kit lens my Nikon D3400 came with.
After three years I was outgrowing the original 18-55mm, f/1:3. 5-5. 6 lens: I found myself having to crank up the exposure of my photos in overcast or even reasonably sunny conditions. So as a prime lens this one is indeed brighter than the zoom kit lens, even at narrower aperture settings.
While the kit lens opens up only to f/3. 5, this one goes down to f/1. 8 – but I still get good indoor photos at f/3. 5 and narrower. I actually don’t like bokeh – generally, I want everything from the foreground to the background to be in focus – but I’m beginning to appreciate the possibilities of a shallow depth of field.
I’ve been getting soft-focus backgrounds that look good, without meaning to. One drawback of the 35mm focal length: in indoor settings, I often find myself having to take three to four steps back to take in the picture I want.
With the original 18mm kit lens, all I had to do was lift the camera to my eyes and press the shutter button. The 35mm focal length makes some types of shots difficult or impossible: I can no longer just stand on a chair and take in everybody in the room singing Happy Birthday.
It seems that there is no such thing as an 18mm or 20mm prime lens for APS-C format cameras. But as someone who just wants to take family holiday photos, I can’t justify the expense of upgrading to a full-frame camera.
I have an old Nikon D5200 from 2013. I had survived on the kit zoom lens and some of my vintage F-mount film lenses (yes, you can use old lenses, but you will not have autofocus and will have to adjust aperture on the lens).
But as I ended up using my camera to cover events, I needed to upgrade to modern lenses. I initially bought the 50mm and 85mm f/1. 8 G lenses that work on full frame and crop sensor Nikon cameras (FX and DX).
But since the 5200 is a crop sensor camera, I still needed a “normal” nifty-fifty equivalent lens. So I went for this affordable 35mm DX lens (52. 5mm FX full frame equivalent field of view). I love its compact size and the beautiful images that it captures.
Do not confuse it with the cheaper “D” series lens. Check compatibility on the Nikon site as the D lens will not have autofocus capability with older cameras like the D5200. That’s why I went with this lens which was a little more expensive but still very affordable.
This is a great little lens. I bought it as the first upgrade from the 18-55mm and 70-300mm kit lenses that came with my Nikon D3500. I wanted a faster lens that would expand my low-light horizons, but I also didn’t want to spend a ton of money- making this the logical choice.
This lens is everything I was hoping it would be. The f/1. 8 aperture is fantastically bright and allows for shooting sharp, clean pictures handheld at lower ISOs without a flash in surprisingly dim light.
Well suited for normal- field-of-view night sky photography as well (e. g. , constellations. ) It’s a very sharp lens, noticeably sharper than my 18-55mm kit lens. Autofocus is a little louder than on the 18-55mm kit lens, but accurate and reasonably quick.
A lot of people complain about the cheap construction but realistically there is only one moving part to break (the focus ring) and it’s reasonably solid. For anything low-light or indoors, this lens is now my tool of choice.
Overall, a top performer at a very low price point and a worthy investment for any Nikon DX shooter.
The AF-S NIKKOR 85mm f/1. 8G is a fast aperture medium telephoto prime (fixed focal length) lens for Nikon FX format digital SLR cameras. It’s also compatible with late model 35mm film autofocus SLRs and DX format digital SLR cameras.

I am very new to photography. I purchased my first real camera back in the Spring. The camera came with the usual kit lens 18-55 mm + 70-300 mm zoom. I have been happy with those lenses but I decided I wanted to upgrade to a faster lens.
After researching options and getting advice from my cousin who is a knowledgeable and experienced photographer (he highly recommended this lens for cost and performance) I purchased the Nikon 35mm f/1.
8. As usual B&H came through with amazing turn around (only a couple of days from order to delivery). It arrived today but unfortunately the weather is dark, rainy and dismal so I can’t really test it out too much.
I did try a couple of test exposures shooting some plants around my patio. I took identical shots using my 18-55mm kit lens @ 35mm and the 35mm f/1. 8 using one of the fully auto modes. The results were pretty dramatic.
The f/1. 8 was 2 stops faster and the ISO dropped from 1800 for the kit lens to 800 for the f/1. 8. The resulting image with the f/1. 8 was brighter and sharper. It’s hard to judge based on just a couple of test images, but it’s pretty obvious this lens way outperforms the 18-55mm kit lens and is a real bargain cost wise.
AF-S DX NIKKOR 35mm f/1. 8G lens, is the first fixed focal length, fast-aperture DX-format lens that affords photographers superb image quality along with the creative possibilities and versatility of the classic 50mm focal length (FX-format equivalent of 52mm).
When mounted on a DX-format camera body, it enables photographers to document their world with a lens that produces a picture angle similar to the field of vision as seen through the human eye. Whether new to D-SLRs or a seasoned enthusiast, users will appreciate the extreme low-light performance and the expanded ability to dramatically separate the subject and background with the new 35mm DX lens’ wide f/1.
8 aperture. Lightweight, compact and affordable, this lens can easily become a fast favorite for any level of photographer, and is the perfect complement to D60 users who are just starting to learn D-SLR photography or enthusiasts who love their D90.
The AF-S DX NIKKOR 35mm f/1. 8G lens is ideal for travel, general photography, landscape shooting, portraiture or pushing creative boundaries. The stunning sharpness, clarity and color reproduction are all proof positive of more than 75 years of NIKKOR heritage and experience in optics engineering.
This lens continues the tradition of NIKKOR precision optics to provide photographers with sharp, high-resolution images and the ability to focus as close as 0. 98 feet, while the integration of an ultra-compact Silent Wave Motor ensures fast, whisper-quiet AF operation.
The 35mm DX lens construction consists of eight elements in six groups, with one aspherical lens to reduce size and weight, while contributing to the enhanced balance when mounted on a smaller DX-format D-SLR.
A rounded diaphragm opening combined with the seven-blade aperture contributes to a substantially more circular bokeh for a more natural appearance of out-of-focus background elements. Additionally, instances of lens flare and chromatic aberration are suppressed using ‘s exclusive Super Integrated Coatings, which also help ensure vividly.
Three aspherical elements are used to reduce spherical aberrations and distortion in order to realize sharp imagery with accurate rendering.
Two extra-low dispersion elements greatly reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations in order to produce greater clarity and color rendering.
Programmable Control Ring is, by default, set to adjust manual focus, but can also be used to control aperture or exposure compensation.
Rounded nine-blade diaphragm promotes a pleasing out of focus quality that benefits the use of shallow depth of field and selective focus techniques.
Dust- and moisture-resistant lens barrel benefits the lens’ use in inclement conditions.
As the first full-frame interchangeable lens with a maximum aperture of f/1. 2 to be fitted with two stepping motors, the Nikkor Z 50mm f/1. 2 S offers extreme clarity and precision.

Additionally, when this lens is teamed with the autofocus of your camera, the results will be out of this world. Up for a Challenge Boasting a superior dust and drip-resistant design and a rubber sealing around the lens mount, this can easily tackle a bit of action.
This allows you to focus on the creative aspect of your shoot and produce next level images.
Pur essendo un obbiettivo ad ampia escursione la resa ottica è eccellente, superiore alle mie aspettative. Molto veloce l’autofocus e valida la stabilizazione, che nel mio caso si aggiunge a quella presente in macchina.

There are many different types of lenses available for Nikon cameras, and the best lens for you will depend on the type of photography you want to do. If you are looking for a cheap lens for Nikon, there are a few things you should keep in mind.
First, consider the type of photography you want to do. If you are looking for a lens for general photography, a 50mm lens is a good option. If you are looking for a lens for portrait photography, a 85mm lens is a good option.
If you are looking for a lens for landscape photography, a wide-angle lens is a good option. Second, consider the aperture of the lens. The aperture is the size of the opening in the lens that allows light to pass through.
The larger the aperture, the more light that can pass through the lens, which is ideal for low-light situations. Third, consider the focal length of the lens. The focal length is the distance from the lens to the subject.
A longer focal length will allow you to take photos of distant subjects, while a shorter focal length will allow you to take photos of close-up subjects.
