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.
A wide-angle is a must-have lens for landscape and architectural photographers, with a versatile wide-angle zoom often favored by those shooting press, weddings, events, or street photography. That there are different DSLR sensor sizes (35mm full-frame or cropped APS-C) means that it’s important to buy a lens designed specifically for each format. This is especially true for wide-angle zoom lenses, because although a full-frame format wide-angle will still work on APS-C, the crop means it’s not really wide-angle.
