We’ve tested a total of 83 fixed focal length prime lenses on the D3400, including both FX-mount full-frame lenses, as well as the DX-mount optics that are specifically designed for use on the APS-C D3400. These lenses cover a vast range of focal lengths, from an ultra wide-angle 14mm for fitting lots into the frame, through to a super-telephoto 600mm focal length that offers a whopping 900mm equivalent on the D3400 (taking account of the Nikon 1.5x APS-C crop factor).
Towards the end of last year, Zeiss announced that the existing line of Classic Nikon ZF.2 and Canon ZE SLR lenses would be redesigned and re-branded according to the company’s penchant for bird genera. The Milvus lens range consists of several models, with the reviewed 2/50M model an update of the highly-respected 50mm f2 Makro-Planar T*.
Nikon’s manual focus ultrafast Noct-Nikkor was in production for 20 years and was removed from the line-up two years before the introduction of the APS-C Nikon D1 in 1999.

Read on to find out how well it performs.
