Best Nikon Lenses: Top 5 For Your Perfect Shot Every Time

21 May

Spring is right around the corner. That means that wedding season is constantly approaching and soon there will be a flood of customers for your photography company.    However, Being the top photographer for the job requires both skills to catch the best shots, and an amazing lens to capture it with. Here is a list of the top 5 SLR lenses sure to impress even the most picky clients, or take amazing nature pictures.

1.Nikon 60mm f/2.8D AF Micro-Nikkor Lens

the first on the list may be the cheapest, but with the quality of every shot it takes, its one of the best lenses in its price range. This auto-focus lens has the ability to focus clearly to 1:1 life size reproduction ratio without breaking a sweat. This macro lens is definitely one of the best macro lenses in its price range, perfect for those photographers interested in taking shots of smaller items and insects to see even the smallest details in every shot.

2.Nikon 24mm f/2.8D AF Nikkor Lens

One of the best photographers from India mentioned this to me, and I must say If you are looking for a decent 24mm lens, then look no further. This auto-focusing lens comes equipped with Nikon’s CRC floating element feature. It has amazing contrast and resolution and its performance is one of the best for taking shots of landscapes or interior designs. This is definitely a lens for those who want an excellent clear shot with  little to no distortion.

3.Nikon 85mm f/1.8D AF Nikkor Lens

If you are a fan of Steve McCurry’s work, then this may be a lens for you as this is one of his favorite lenses. It brings amazing details to portrait shots and gives sharp shots to wide open areas as well. A thing to note about this is it is also relatively small and pretty light, but you can tell that this particular lens is built to last. The only downside to this lens is no auto-focus feature, but if you can get around that minor detail, then you have a winner on your hands.

4.Nikon 60mm f/2.8G ED AF-S Micro-Nikkor Lens

Don’t be fooled by the specs on this lens claiming 7.2” minimal focus: This one is a winner for both close range and mid range shots. The images it takes are both incredibly sharp and have incredible detail to color reproduction. If you are interested in taking a lot of nature shots, this may be the lens for you.

5.Nikon 17-55mm f/2.8G ED-IF AF-S DX Nikkor Zoom Lens

If you have an extra thousand to splurge on a good camera lens, then look no further. This is absolutely one of the the company has to offer. Choosing the best camera is relatively easy but choosing the lens can be a difficult decision, but that’s where this lens shines and never disappoints. Natural light shots explode in color with amazing detail and even though it may seem like it has a relatively frail feel to it, the amazing detail and clarity of the pictures can’t be beat. If you can afford it, don’t hesitate to give this lens a spin.

So this completes the list of some of the best Nikon lenses available and all for good reason. If you decide to purchase these lenses you won’t be disappointed and your clients won’t either as these beauties are built with quality in every detail and you should expect nothing less from Nikon. Just be prepared for some of your clients to be left in tears by the shots you deliver.

    I am surprised you didn’t mention the 105 mm Micro prime. It’s supposed to be one of the best prime for macro photography.
