Further readings for the Nikon AF-S Nikkor 24mm f/1.4G ED
To provide photographers with a broader perspective about mobiles, lenses and cameras, here are links to articles, reviews, and analyses of photographic equipment produced by DxOMark, renown websites, magazines or blogs.
The Nikon AF-S Nikkor 24mm f/1.8G ED (Nikon 24mm f/1.8G) is the seventh f/1.8 prime G-type lens to be added recently to the Nikkor lineup. Designed to maximize the resolution potential of sensors such as the 36Mp Nikon D810, these latest lenses have been breaking new ground for optical performance on Nikon DSLRs.
Whether it’s for landscape, architecture, or just to be able to squeeze a bit more into the frame, a wide-angle is an important lens for many photographers. They’re not the cheapest optics, however, and with varying image results across the different options, knowing each lens’s strengths and weaknesses will help you decide which one is the one for you. We weigh up the DxOMark lens scores of Nikon’s latest 20mm wide-angle prime against some of the competition.
In this second installment of lens recommendations for the Nikon D810, we’ve been analyzing the best performing models for landscape and wildlife photography. Admittedly when it comes to fast-paced photography there are better choices in Nikon’s range but there’s always a case for high-resolution imagery but the Nikon D810 also serves to highlight the best performing models, and particularly in the longer focal lengths where it’s more common (and often more practical) to use cameras with lower pixel densities.
We’ve tested the new 24-Mpix Nikon D3300 with more than 140 Nikkor and third-party prime and zoom models to assess image quality. Read onto find out which of these lenses have the best image quality when paired with the new camera.
Following the recent review of the Canon mount model we’ve had the opportunity to test the Nikon mount version of ultra-high speed Samyang 24mm F1.4 prime. Unlike the Canon version this model has a built-in CPU for full compatibility with the various exposure and metering modes. It also has a fully automatic aperture. Read on to find out how well the Samyang performs in our tests and if that or a rival model is the best choice for Nikon FX users.
Following the lens recommendations for Nikon D7100 and entry-level D3200, we’ve now turned our attention to the new mid-range D5300. We’ve tested the camera with more than 140 Nikkor and third-party prime and zoom models to assess image quality. Read onto find out which of these lenses have the best image quality when paired with the new camera.
Following on from the lens recommendations for the earlier full-frame Nikon D600, we’ve now had the opportunity to assess a wide range lenses with that model’s replacement, the 24-Mpix D610. We’ve analyzed a total of 95 Nikkor and third-party prime and zoom models with the D610 to assess image quality, and we’ve come across some unexpected results. Read on to find out more about that and which lenses perform best when paired with the camera.
This is the fourth and final part in the series of our lens recommendations for the Nikon D7100, where we’ve analyzed over 20 Nikkor and third-party wide and ultra wide angle prime and zoom models to assess their optical quality.
Read onto find out which of these lenses are the best performers when paired with Nikon’s ultra-high resolution 24-Mpix APS-C format semi-pro model.
For shooting high quality landscape, architectural or interior photos, a “fast” wide-angle prime is a must. They offer significantly improved optical performance over many zooms that, while versatile, often suffer distortion and edge softness at wide focal lengths and maximum apertures. Let’s take a closer look at the Carl Zeiss 25mm f/2 wide-angle prime for Nikon and Canon lens mounts to see what it has to offer.
