Further readings for the Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 20mm f/1.8G ED
To provide photographers with a broader perspective about mobiles, lenses and cameras, here are links to articles, reviews, and analyses of photographic equipment produced by DxOMark, renown websites, magazines or blogs.
We’ve tested 149 lenses on the D5600, including primes and zooms, and in this first part of our “Best lenses for the Nikon D5600” review, we’ve picked a selection of the best affordable primes. The review analyzes the performance of our top three lenses in four categories, including wide-angle, standard, 50mm, and telephoto lenses. Before we get dive into the lenses, here’s a quick overview of how we calculate the Lens Metrics, along with some key lens features to look for.
We’ve tested a total of 83 fixed focal length prime lenses on the D3400, including both FX-mount full-frame lenses, as well as the DX-mount optics that are specifically designed for use on the APS-C D3400. These lenses cover a vast range of focal lengths, from an ultra wide-angle 14mm for fitting lots into the frame, through to a super-telephoto 600mm focal length that offers a whopping 900mm equivalent on the D3400 (taking account of the Nikon 1.5x APS-C crop factor).
Nikon’s latest flagship FX-mount, full-frame DSLR — the D5 — is a performance powerhouse, featuring a new 153-point autofocus system and 12 fps burst shooting of up to 200 14-bit RAW files. Designed for the traditional customer base of sports, press and wildlife pros demanding top performance, the D5’s increased 20.8Mp resolution and enhanced low-light capabilities has further broadened the D5’s appeal. As well as boasting enough pixels for advertising, magazine, and even landscape photography, the D5’s image quality improvements at the mid-ISO 1600–12,800 range will interest a range of professionals looking for great results in low light.
In Part 2 of “Best lenses for the Nikon D750” we’re looking at the performance of primes on Nikon’s latest full-frame DSLR. We’ve analyzed over 60 fixed-focal-length lenses on the D750, including Nikon’s own Nikkor brand and third-party alternatives. Covering focal lengths from 14mm through to 600mm, the scores include some of the best results our technicians have ever recorded.
Whether it’s for landscape, architecture, or just to be able to squeeze a bit more into the frame, a wide-angle is an important lens for many photographers. They’re not the cheapest optics, however, and with varying image results across the different options, knowing each lens’s strengths and weaknesses will help you decide which one is the one for you. We weigh up the DxOMark lens scores of Nikon’s latest 20mm wide-angle prime against some of the competition.
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.
Alongside the new D750 Nikon have unveiled a new FX mount wide-angle prime lens for Nikon full frame cameras. The new Nikon 20mm f/1.8G ED offers a ‘fast’ f/1.8 maximum aperture, ED and AS glass elements for improved image quality and is suited for those photographers who need to squeeze a bit more into the frame.
