Nikon’s latest and greatest ultra wide angle zoom. It completed my “big three” line up and was purchased in 2010. Not a whole lot to be said about this lens that hasn’t been said over and over again before. I use it mainly on my D700 though have used it on my F4 as well. It […]

If I could only have one lens out of my collection, this would probably be it. I use it all the time. Since I got the D700, this lens has been even better, since it could be used as a true 24mm lens. It is pretty fast as well. I highly recommend this lens to […]

This is the first of the “big three” that I purchased, this one in 2008 I believe. It is a great lens though very big and heavy. I rarely use the hood since the lens looks enormous with the hood attached. Nikon has released a newer version, but I don’t see the need. There is […]

My fastest lens and one of the two that can be used on all of my Nikon cameras as it has the aperture ring on the back. I can shoot with this on my FM2. However, I don’t usually shoot with the 50mm range since I prefer the 35mm focal length. I do enjoy using […]

I have a decent sized and growing lens collection, but one of my most used lenses is the Nikon 35mm F2D. Simply put, it is small, light-weight, is fully compatible with all of my cameras and is a really good focal length for most uses. Being a prime, it of course weighs a lot less […]

Got this for those times I wanted a bit of extra reach on my cameras. I don’t use it a lot since it seem to cut down on image quality a bit. Or maybe it just might be the haze I shoot through. I’d probably suggest the 1.7 for use with the 70-200.

I’ve used this lens when I want the fishey effect or when I needed something faster than the Sigma 10-20. It is a nice little lens, though because of the fisheye effect, it can’t be used all the time.  It doesn’t really work on the D700, but I have no plans to find the FX […]

Got this for my wife to use on her D60. It has a a full time manual focus override and VR, so it seemed like a good lens for the D60. However, compared to my other lenses. . . . The focus ring of this lens is actually in the back. While it does seem […]

One of my wife’s favorite lenses. I purchased this for myself in 2008 to use on my D300 and D70. However, it suffered from terrible back focusing on the 300 and would just twitch on the D70. It took a long time to lock focus. One guy claimed that sigma told him it wouldn’t work […]

One of my most used lenses for a couple of years. Very wide and ruggedly built. I crashed a motorcycle when the Sigma was mounted to the bike.. It mostly survived. On the plus: Very wide and rugged. On the minus. AF-S focus override doesn’t work like it does on Nikon lenses. Not very sharp, […]
