Typical recommendations of superb optics, now Nikkor classics

° 24mm f/2 AI-S Some buy the f/2.8 due to its lower price
° 35mm f/1.4 AI-S Some get the f/2 for the same price reason
° 50mm f/1.2 AI-S The f/1.4 and f/1.8 are more popular due to cost and the 55mm f/2.8 Micro for its specific macro use
° 85mm f/1.4 AI-S Same thing here -cost- for the f/1.8
° 105mm f/2.5 AI-S I like the 105mm f/1.8 slightly better but it is more difficult to find in EX+ condition or above and more expensive
° 135mm f/2.8 AI-S Same comment as above about the 135mm f/2.0, which I like better
° 180mm f/2.8 ED IF AI-S Darn good, slightly better than the AI version
° 200mm f/2 ED IF AI-S Others prefer the 200mm f/4 Micro and the AI versions
° 300mm f/2.8 ED IF AI-S Excellent, slightly better than the AI
° 400mm f/2.8 ED IF AI-S Here you may opt for the 400mm f/3.5 P

  1. Now I understand what I had no idea what to think when my sister mentioned these. I'm glad I can now say what they are. Wouldn't mind getting a pair of my own either. Thanks again for sharing!
