Hi,

Would anyone know what Nikkor lens is equivalent to a Cannon 90mm prime? I am unsure of the f number at the moment.

The only lens I can see close to the Cannon is the AF-S Nikkor 85mm f/1.8G.

The only 90mm Canon I could find is their Tilt/Shift lens. Then there are a couple 85mm with different apertures and a 100mm macro. Best check here for Canons current line up.

Nikon has pretty much the same line up except the tilt/shift is 85mm and the macro lens is 105mm. Check here for Nikkors.

Be sure to also check out the Lens Gallery here at cameralabs. And Gordon's Nikkon Lens Guide.

If you are looking for a normal 85mm prime I think the new 1.8g is an excellent choice. I'm saving up for it myself :) among other lenses :D

Hope I could be of help.

As already indocated in the above reply, the only current Canon 90mm is the tilt-shift manual-focus lens. There are third-party 90mm macro lenses, and the Voigtlander 90mm 3.5, made by Cosina, which has been recently discontinued, though it has a small but devoted following. Finding these 90mm Voigtlanders in the USA, for the Nikon mount, is not easy, as few are listed; I managed to acquire one, in as-new condition, in late 2012 or early 2013. I had noticed better availability from European sources.

Some of the 90mm macro lenses, made in Japan, have quite good reputations, though I have no experience with them. We do have a 100mm Tokina macro, which is excellent.

I must have missed this on the Nikon site, I thought it was 90mm thanks.

The guy I spoke to hasn`t mentioned if it was a third party lens he used. He thought the Nikkor PCE 24mm was to narrow, and then said about using a 90mm. But I haven`t a clue if he was talking about Cannon, Nikon or a third party manufacturer, I will be chatting to him later and will ask for clarification on this.

Thanks for the information by the way.

If 24mm is too narrow, 90mm will be even more narrow.

That is what I thought, I am going to ask this guy again to clarify, perhaps I have picked him up wrong. But he also mentioned another lens, possibly 60mm. Maybe he uses lens correction, either way yes I will chat to him again, and update the forum accordingly, thanks.
