Tamron now offers a lightweight, compact, high-image-quality telephoto zoom lens with macro capability of 1: 2 that can be used with digital cameras. This new lens is a Di type lens using an optical system with improved multi-coating designed to function with digital SLR cameras as well as film cameras.With this 70-300mm telephoto zoom lens, flipping a macro switch in the focal length range of 180mm to 300mm obtains a maximum magnification ratio of 1: 2 at a minimum focus distance as short as 37.4", enabling close-up shots of flowers, insects, and other objects that normally require the use of a specially designed macro lens. Moreover, this is a zoom lens that casually offers the distant capture and foreshortening effect pleasures of the 300mm ultra-telephoto world. Less

An auto and manual camera lens is a versatile tool for any photographer. Lenses like the Nikon Nikkor AF-S can be adjusted to suit a wide variety of photographic styles, from landscapes and scenery to fast-shutter sports photography. This Nikon camera lens is also particularly good at capturing images of nature. With a speedy aperture of f/1.4G, the Nikon Nikkor AF-S can snap the shutter fast enough to catch events such as bolts of lightning, falling rain, and moving wildlife with ease. This auto and manual camera lens has a focal length of 55 mm — ideal for travel photography, and taking pictures of any subject from a distance. This lens also increases ISO levels drastically without adding any noise to pictures, making it easy to create super sharp, crisp photography even in low lighting. With a weight of only 8 oz, this Nikon camera lens is also compact enough to take along anywhere. The Nikon Nikkor AF-S is compatible with Nikon cameras, and uses a Nikon F mount. Less

A Short Time Line toward the Prime


It’s about time Nikon developed this prime lens for the new line of Nikon dSLR and what Nikon did was to develop this lens to replace the 50mm AF-D, which doesn’t have autofocus capability for their new camera line that requires the... Read full review »

Pros Good optics, well built
Cons Not class leading yet priced that way, slow AF-S
Recommended it? No

This is the new AF-S Version of the well regarded 50mm AF-D 1.4, which is still available. 

Overall:
This is a bit beefier, if memory serves, than my old 50mm 1.4, and it also feels better with tighter tolerances.

Optics:
They're good, though not great and this is the... Read full review »
