We summarize the scores and analyses of multi-purpose zoom lenses in this second part of our review of the best lenses for the Nikon D5. More versatile than primes, zoom lenses are often a more convenient choice for shooting in fast-paced environments when you don’t always have time to switch lenses. Although primes generally deliver better image quality, with noticeably improved edge sharpness and transmission, zoom performance has steadily improved, and now some come close to rivalling the performance of a prime.
The Nikon D750 is an affordable 24.3Mp full-frame DSLR with attractive-looking specs for both the enthusiast and the professional photographer. It’s capable of producing outstanding pictures, but the quality of the lens used has a bearing on image quality. We’ve analyzed the performance of 105 lenses on the Nikon D750, and in part one we bring you an analysis of the top three zoom lenses in six different categories.
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.
Aimed at professional studio and landscape photographers, the full-frame 36-Mpix D800E with its modified AA filter effectively increasing resolution over the standard D800 model is the closest 35mm full-frame camera yet to rival larger formats in rendering fine detail. If you’re undecided over which of the two models to choose, we’ve analyzed the image quality of the Nikon D800E with over 100 different lenses to discover how well this groundbreaking camera performs.
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.
Sigma’s move away from the value-end of the market has resulted in some very high-quality yet sensitively priced lenses such as the full-frame 35mm f1.4 HSM A and this lens, the APS-C format 18-35mm f1.8 DC HSM. While we’ve previously reviewed the Canon mount version, Sigma has just released the lens in Nikon mount and we were curious to see if the performance could be repeated. Read on to find out.
Following the recommendations for Nikon D7100, we’ve had the opportunity to assess another of the firm’s 24-Mpix DX format cameras – the mid-range D5200 - with over 120 Nikkor and third-party prime and zoom models to assess image quality. Read onto find out which of these lenses perform best when paired with the camera.
This is the second part of our lens recommendations for the Nikon D7100 where we’ve analyzed nearly 60 Nikkor and third-party standard and portrait 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.
This is part one of our lens recommendations for the Nikon D7100 where we’ve tested over 120 Nikkor and third-party prime and zoom models to assess image quality. Read onto find out which of these lenses are perform best when paired with Nikon’s 24M-Pix APS-C format semi-pro model.
