The Nikkor AF-S 50mm f/1.8 G is a product that has taken everyone by surprise. Prior to an unfortunate leak on the Nikon website, no one had a clue that the company was upgrading the old, yet very popular AF-D 50/1.8. There were, rather, many other items in Nikon’s kitty that needed an upgradation over this. Nikon however has a good logic behind this move. Since Nikon’s ordinary lenses are pretty inexpensive, most people buy them as their main, initial lens. As a result, these lenses sell like hot cake.

The Nikkor AF-S DX 10-24mm F/3.5-4.5G ED is a wide angled zoom meant for the digital SLR cameras of the DX format.
Nikon, for the first time in 2003 offered a DX wide angle lens. Gradually it added to its kitty is the Nikkor AF-S DX 12-24/4 G, a very high quality but slightly expensive wide angle lens. However, with the launch of the Nikkor AF-S DX 10-24mm F/3.5-4.5G ED in 2009, Nikon broke even and reached out to a lot of customers who found it to be very useful and affordable. Priced at €750/$800, it isn’t really cheap, but compared to the F-S DX 12-24/4 G, the price is more reliable. Continue reading
The Nikon Nikkor 18-55 VR is a great DX lens. The field-of-view exposure is 27-82.5mm. As a result, it doesn’t have the greatest of speeds but it surely envelops a very good stretch. Even with the presence of VR, the lens is almost as expensive as its precursor, priced at €100 / $130. This, to a great extent proves that there are very few changes in the built-in quality. The plastic used to make the body, including the lens, is of poor quality. However, this isn’t a real problem and can be found in entry level cameras of most companies.
The Nikon Nikkor 18-200VR2 or the AF-S DX nikkor 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6g ed VR II, is an upgraded version of the very well-liked and useful 18-200mm VR lens. It is a super-zoom lens in the DX design. The lens has been upgraded mainly to address the zoom creep problem, which according to users, was the most annoying issue with the earlier lens. The new lens also comes with a switch that locks the zoom while in motion. With a new and better “super integrated coating”, the problems of flaring and ghosting are considerably reduced too. There isn’t any alteration in the size dimensions and the look too is similar to the predecessor. The lens was launched in September 2009 and was at the time sold for £729.99 / €887.00 / $849.95.
