Photography for beginners: DX format lens

16-85mm or 18-140mm Kit lens

As a necessary tool for this group of users, Kit lens has a frequently and widely used Zoom range, and one lens of this type, Nikon AF-S DX 16-85mm F3.5-5.6G IF-ED VR, is a DX format lens for daily applications, offering good capability that can even match Nikon “gold ring quality”effect to some extent, and has a very good imaging quality in the Nikon Kit lens family. With an equivalent focal length of 24-127.5mm, it can take large-scene landscape photos in the wide-angle end as well as distant-view pictures in the Telephoto end.

Nikon introduces ultra-fast Nikkor AF-S 105mm f / 1.4E ED – Electromagnetic Diaphragm

Nikon presents its new AF-S Nikkor 105 mm f/1.4E ED, which will be the brightest 105 mm on the market today. With new optics, the AF-S Nikkor uses an electromagnetic diaphragm that has been advocated for in the world of optics for many years.

As we’ve mentioned, those in charge at Nikon have confirmed that the old – but by no means outdated – mechanical operation lever of the diaphragm of the Nikkor lenses, which is reminiscent of the sixties, does not only fail to offer the needed precision for the available means of exposure in the cameras of the 21st century, especially regarding burst shooting in sequence, but in addition, it also takes away the designers’ freedom when deciding on the optical scheme. This is because with this type of lever, the diaphragm must be located as close as possible to the mount to avoid issues with torsion of the lever. It then becomes a limitation when deciding upon the location of the lenses and their diameters.

It was necessary. Nikon has presented today the natural evolution of the actual D800. Under the name of D810, this new reflex arrives with some changes that, even if they are not really revolutionary, they will improve the performance that is offered by the series today. The most evident example is found in the sensor, that continue to be of 36.3 megapixel but which Nikon has given a makeover by eliminating the low pass filter, obtaining even better image definition. Also, the addition of an Expeed 4 processor helps to improve the performance of the ISO (Now it reaches around the ISO 12800) and the speed of image taking, reaching the 5 images per second at maximum resolution or 7 images per second with a DX cut.

Along with the new Nikon 1 V3, the Japanese brand has also introduced two new lenses. The first is the Nikkor 1 VR 10-30 mm F/3.5-5.6 PD-ZOOM, a motorized version of the 10-30 mm zoom that Nikon has been using as the trademark lens of the Series 1 since its release.
