Nikon is celebrating the release of 70 millionth lens in its 79 years history of the lens making. Nikon launched two new lenses for DX series camera as part of its celebration. They include Nikkor 18-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR lens, which is said to be Nikon’s longest ever focal range lens. The other one is Nikkor 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5G ED VR lens. These two lenses are expected to get popular as like other Nikkor lenses.
The 18-300mm lens from Nikon with super zoom is offered at a price of around Rs. 50, 000/-, and it is designed particularly to suit Nikon’s DX-format shooters like D5100, D3100 and D7000. With the smaller sensor in DX cameras, you will be able to experience a 35mm equivalent focal range i.e around 27-450mm. While sticking this lens with any DSLR camera, you can capture every fleeting. The f/3.5 with the new lens is not that impressive as it wouldn’t be that good in low light conditions.
This new lens from Nikon features a zoom lock switch by which the lens barrel can be safely secured at minimum length while on the move. The VR image stabilization technology is really helpful in managing the efficiency as it easily adjusts with the shaky situations or when the light is a bit low. These features are quite helpful for amateur photographers to having pictures with stability and clarity.
The 24-85mm lens from Nikon is designed particularly to suit Nikon’s full-frame FX cameras which are usually the high-end ones like D800, D3 and D4. This compact and light weight lens from Nikon are offered at a decent price tag of around Rs. 30,000/-. Good quality output is offered by this lens again with VR image stabilization feature.
According to reports from this Japanese camera maker, the new lenses will reach the market by the end of this month. Nikon is hoping that these two news lenses will be successful accessories like its previous ones adding splendour to its 70 millionth lens celebration. Nikon started its lens making by 1933 and new lenses one after the other were added successfully making use of its own cutting-edge technology. Nikon lenses are known for image stability and long shell life.
