Reveals, New Launches and Gear


Nikkor Lenses

Nikon have released three new Nikkor lenses that are sure to make photography buffs drool. Each lens features Nikon’s signature ED glass that reduces secondary spectrum. The new range includes a 200-500mm f/5.6, an optically stabilized 24-70mm f/2.8 VR, and a prime 24mm f/1.8. These new Nikkors fill some gaps in the already stellar range of Nikon lenses. If you’ve never shot a prime lens at f/1.8, we strongly recommend that you do so.
