All Nikon Lenses, Group Shot

Complete List of Lenses for Nikon

Nikon has been producing lenses with their "F" mount for over 50 years, so there are hundreds different of lenses made by Nikon that will fit modern DSLRs.

Nikon has been producing lenses with their “F” mount for over 50 years 1, so there are hundreds of lenses made by Nikon that will fit modern DSLRs, though with limited functionality. As a matter of practicality, I’m leaving all of these older lenses off of this list and including primarily lenses that are currently in production and a few lenses that have recently ended production, and a few other notable discontinued lenses. However, if you’re looking for something in particular, especially for shooting video or time-lapse, where the newest optics and autofocus are not as critical, a quick Ebay search for used equipment may be worth the time.

Nikon-Nikkor-lens-front-elements-group-shotThis is a table of Nikon lenses and lenses for Nikon F mount but made by other manufacturers. You can sort the table by clicking the arrows at the top of each column, but sorting by price doesn’t work very well right now.

You can also filter the results by typing in the search field. For example, if you only want to see DX lenses, just type “DX” in the search field, and only those lenses will be displayed. Similarly, if you only want to see “Micro” lenses, or “Prime” lenses, the table can be filtered that way, too.

Notes

Some of the manufacturers throw around the term “Macro” pretty loosely in naming their lenses, when they really just mean “close-focusing”. All Nikon “Micro” lenses focus 1:1, as do many of the 3rd party prime lenses (Zeiss optics are the exception, and focus 1:2). Don’t expect the same performance from all zoom lenses listed as “Macro”, though.

As a matter of practicality, I’ve decided NOT to include most lenses that are discontinued or otherwise no longer available. Canon’s 50mm f/1.8 mark I was replaced by the mark II, for example, so the original is not listed, nor is the f/1.0, even though its replacement, the f/1.2, is not exactly the same.

Glossary

  1. VR, OS, and VC : All refer to image stabilization that is built into the lens. VR is Nikon’s designation, OS is Sigma’s, and VC is Tamron’s.
  2. AF-S, HSM, USD and PZD : All refer to silent-wave motor technology, which is faster and quieter than a standard micro-motor.
  3. FX, DX : FX lenses are Nikon’s full-frame designed optics, whereas the DX line only fully cover the image circle of an APS-C sensor. These will only work with full-frame cameras in DX shooting mode.
  4. Fisheye : A fisheye is a lens that does not have rectilinear correction; straight lines are distorted and appear dramatically curved.
