Complete Modern Nikon Lens List

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 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.

Lenses highlighted in yellow are intended for APS-C sensors or will give incomplete coverage on full frame 35mm sensors.

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.

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.

If there are additional lenses that you think should be included, please comment below, or email me. Similarly, if there are terms that you think should be in the mini-glossary here, just let me know.

  1. Since 1959, in fact, though there have been minor modifications to support modern electronics and autofocusing.

  • Hi Matthew
    I am new to photography
    I plan to buy a new Nikon D5600 or D7200 and pair it with a 18-55mm VR II and 55-200 VR II lens
    What is your advise?
    Which camera do you recommend as a beginner and maybe later an enthusiast
    Which camera is better in shooting in poor lighting or indoor
    Thanks

    • Hi Steven,

      My advice is always this: buy the least expensive camera that will meet your needs, and the best lenses that you can afford. In this case, I’d go with the D5600 unless you can think of something that you’ll need to do that it can’t. I do have some comparisons on this site, if you need some help.

      Generally, though, there aren’t significant differences in low-light performance. They’re going to be identical for all practical purposes there. A large aperture lens added to either body would make a significant difference. Either of those zoom lenses will have a maximum aperture of f/5.6 when zoomed in all way. A 35mm f/1.8 lens will let in 8 times more light (techincally, 3 1/3 stops), and will cost under $200. So, it’s important to remember that the camera and lens work as a system… and a good lens can make a mediocre camera much better.

      – Matthew
