Tamron 45mm f1.8 VC review
  • Written by

The Tamron SP 45mm f1.8 Di VC USD is an interesting addition to the increasing choice of large aperture standard lenses: it combines very good performance with image-stabilization that adds 2-3 stops of hand-hold-ability to its f/1.8 aperture. With this lens you can shoot under low-light conditions hand-held that you could not cover with a…

Nikon 24-70mm f2.8E VR review
  • Written by

The Nikon AF-S 24-70mm f2.8E ED VR is a pro-grade standard zoom which delivers very good performance overall, with astonishingly good FX-corners. It also adds image-stabilization that works very well. So what’s not to like about the successor to one of Nikon’s best-selling full-frame DSLR lenses? Well, the first copy of the lens that I…

Nikon 35mm f1.8G review
  • Written by

The Nikkor 35mm f1.8G ED fills the last gap in Nikon’s 35mm line-up: a lens designed for full-frame DSLRs, but pitched at a more affordable price-point than the flagship model. Nikon already offers the gold-ringed AF-S 35/1.4G for professional use and the AF-S DX Nikkor 35/1.8G for owners of its DX-format APS-C models. Until now,…

Nikon 50mm f1.4G review
  • Written by

The Nikkor AF-S 50mm f1.4G was announced in September 2008 as the company’s flagship standard prime lens. It shares the same bright f1.4 aperture and standard focal length as the much older AF 50mm f1.4D, but features an SWM focusing motor, which means it’ll autofocus quickly and quietly on all Nikon DSLRs, including the D3x00…

Nikon 24-85mm VR review
  • Written by

The Nikkor AF-S 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5G VR is an affordable general-purpose zoom that’s compatible with full-frame Nikon FX bodies. Announced in June 2012, it’s arguably the successor to the Nikon AF 24-85mm f/2.8-4D from 2000. It’s optically a little slower but now sports Vibration Reduction to counteract camera shake and as an AF-S model it’ll autofocus…

Nikkor AF-S DX 16-85mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR

The Nikkor DX 16-85mm VR was announced in January 2008 alongside the D60 DSLR. It equips all DX format bodies with a general-purpose range that’s equivalent to 24-128mm, making it an ideal walk-around lens with wider coverage than most kit lenses. The VR in the title stands for Vibration Reduction, Nikon’s optical anti-shake system, with…
