This feature is indicated by a Lens Type Signal notch in the lens mount. At extreme settings, DC lenses can generate an overall soft-focus effect. In today’s consumerist society, it seems that owning the latest gadget is a necessity. This was the last of the completely manual PC-Nikkors to be offered. The AI standard adds a Meter Coupling Ridge to the aperture ring, which encodes the current aperture setting relative to the maximum, and a Lens Speed Indexing Post on the mounting flange, which encodes the maximum aperture itself. This convention is also used in Pentax K-mount and Sony A-mount lenses but is opposite of the direction normally used by Canon. The aperture diaphragm of an E lens is controlled digitally by the camera, and actuated electromagnetically by a system housed within the lens, rather than employing the F-mount's traditional mechanical diaphragm linkage. Designates a lens which includes one or more elements constructed of fluorite instead of glass. Whether they need it or not is irrelevant, Apple creates the desire to own the very latest gadget, and with each new release, the previous iPhone is immediately devalued. - Indicates the Nano Crystal Coat, a relatively new type of lens coating that originated in Nikon's semiconductor division. I say ‘better’ since this term is completely subjective, hence my reason for this review.

- The original autofocus designation, indicating focus driven by a motor inside the camera body. None of this family of lenses were branded instead carrying the text "Nikon Lens Series E." Not to be confused with E - type autofocus and electromagnetic diaphragm lenses. Thankfully, professional DSLRs are only upgraded every few years. This gives the consumer the time to actually use the camera to its full potential, so that by the time the manufacturer actually releases a new model, an upgrade can be somewhat justifiable. Recently I went to a Nikon event in the Hunter Valley. - Lens designed exclusively for use on a bellows unit, primarily for macro photography. - Lenses designed for use with the now-defunct Pronea APS SLR. They sacrificed some construction quality and employed simpler but often surprisingly good optical designs. It replaces several lens elements, thus reducing the size and weight of a lens. E Lenses with manual aperture control like PC-E lenses allow manual diaphragm operation on all cameras, with possible unreliable metering on DSLRs without E-type support. The lens cannot be mounted on later camera bodies with protruding prisms. Numerous other manufacturers employ the F-mount in non-photographic imaging applications. IF lenses also allow the use of a polarizing filter without the need to readjust it after focus. The levers of AI and pre-AI lenses were intended only to close the aperture to its manual setting. This typically involves a Lightroom preset, or a Photoshop curve or two, taking the RAW file from good to amazing. Achieved by internal focus movements that move differently relative to the movement of the other focusing elements. Only autofocus bodies with command dials are capable of controlling G lenses. Uses a moving optical group to reduce the photographic effects of camera shake. Some independent camera repair technicians continue to offer such conversions. The Ridge and Post couple to the camera's light meter. The 'K' designation itself is believed to be derived from the Japanese "konnichi-teki", loosely translatable as "modern" or "contemporary". However, Nikon lenses designed for film cameras will work on Nikon digital system cameras with the limitations noted above. For some products, an annual release with accompanying fanfare means an essential upgrade for many consumers, whether they actually need the new features or not. This designation appears in specifications but not lens names. AI-designated lenses also improved on the original Meter Coupling Prong, adding cutaways which allow more ambient light to fall on the aperture ring, increasing visibility on cameras which optically projected the setting inside the viewfinder. Older autofocus bodies will work with G lenses in shutter priority and program modes with full opened aperture. If you’re lucky, you’ll still be able to buy one for an absolutely bargain price by clicking here This lens is a versatile choice for travel, landscapes, portraits, and distant subjects. DC lenses have a separate control ring for spherical aberration, which affects primarily the appearance of out-of-focus areas, also known as bokeh. Early Series E lenses were built to the AI specification. Focusing is accomplished through the movement of rear lens groups, eliminating extension and rotation of the front lens element, allowing focus to be driven quickly by a small motor. Some recent G lenses feature a weatherproofing gasket around the mounting flange. Current professional Nikon camera bodies link with the Meter Coupling Ridge, but the Lens Speed Indexing Post is ignored and the maximum aperture value is set electronically by the operator instead. Lenses designated AI-S, Series E, and AF all include these features of AI. - Super Integrated Coating, a proprietary multicoating. With earlier DSLRs and all "analog" film camera models, a PC-E lens operates like a PC lens. It was a camera enthusiast’s wet dream, with the entire new Nikon lineup available to sample. They are manufactured by Cosina to Zeiss specifications. The lens is fitted with electrical contacts for digital communication with the camera. F-mount lenses also typically have aperture rings that turn clockwise to close. The first Micro-Nikkor lenses were created for producing microforms of Kanji text. Later Series E lenses were upgraded to the AI-S specification, and are identifiable by a metal ring on the barrel. After applying my adjustments in post, only an expert at Nikon could tell the files apart, and even he would have a hard time without peeking at the EXIF data. Then of course there’s the software upgrades that seem designed to cripple older hardware, forcing the consumer to upgrade. The iPhone is a great example of this, where biannual upgrades announced to the world by Apple’s powerful and sexy marketing machine elicit Apple fans to scrabble blindly to get their hands on the latest product. In addition to normal ED glass, "Super ED" glass is used in some lenses. Incompatibilities do exist, however, and adventurous F-mount users should consult product documentation in order to avoid problems. In addition to Nikon's own range of "Nikkor" lenses, brands of F-mount photographic lenses include Zeiss, Voigtländer, Schneider, Angénieux, Samyang, Sigma, Tokina, Tamron, Hartblei, Kiev-Arsenal, Lensbaby, and Vivitar. Also used: Thin molded aspheric elements coupled to a conventional glass element. - "Night." Specialty low-light lens designed for maximum sharpness at the widest aperture setting. Later cameras did not require these features, and interoperate with AI and AI-S lenses identically. Canon EOS 5D Mark IV Full Frame. AI-S lens apertures move in a standardized fashion in relation to their stop-down levers. Some VR lenses also support a panning mode, detecting horizontal movement of the lens and minimizing only vertical vibration. Fisheye lens that produces an image which maintains the same brightness in the image as in the object, with no falloff at the edges. Focusing is accomplished through the movement of internal lens groups, eliminating extension and rotation of the front lens element, allowing focus to be driven quickly by a small motor. The advance of aperture control by the camera body itself, by partial actuation of the stop-down lever, meant more precision was required for consistent exposure. The lens elements have been treated with Nikon's Super Integrated Coating - an optical lens coating process that maximizes light transmission while enhancing clarity and contrast The company continues to use variations of the same lens mount specification for its film and digital SLR cameras. For all other cameras the lens aperture stays maximum open with normal autofocus and metering. MSD Premium Samsung Galaxy S7. Notice how the lens captures the nuance of light in a low-lit. RF lenses also allow the use of a polarizing filter without the need to readjust it after focus.

The F-mount has a significant degree of both backward and forward compatibility. G lenses otherwise have the same characteristics as D lenses. New cameras keep appearing, pushing this legendary camera further and further back in the minds of Nikon users. These lenses are needed for autofocus on certain newer low-end Nikon cameras which lack an autofocus motor. The term AI-S is now commonly used to refer to manual focus lenses, and Nikon continues to produce eight prime lens models in its AI-S line. - "AI with Program." CPU-enabled variation of AI-S. One High Refractive Index element and two ED glass elements minimize aberrations for sharp, color-accurate images throughout the zoom range. The scalloped-metal focus rings were replaced with rubber grip insets, and the use of element number and coating designations was discontinued. The has been somewhat forgotten about in recent years. The images when viewed on my computer showed where the main advancements in technology had come. The flash's guide number is set on the lens, and the aperture is accordingly coupled to the lens's focus ring for correct exposure. Lenses with this coating feature the logo of an "N" inside an elongated hexagon on the name plate. It is more a psychological thing than anything else to tell the truth – I know I’m using the best which gives me the confidence that every image will look as good as it can do, and anyone at the wedding who knows about cameras will ‘respect’ me more – sad but true. You see, pixel peeking and taking photos of brick walls aside, the majority of professional photographers at least in the wedding industry, post process their images. The A lenses can be converted to the AI specification; see below. NP-FH50 Rechargeable Battery For. Some non-professional Nikon cameras require CPU lenses for metered operation. Indicated after the f-number in the name, and also occasionally designated AF-D. The advances in technology simply haven’t been great enough yet. - Designation for lenses without an aperture ring, indicated after the f-number in the name. There are also "unofficial" designations used by collectors and dealers to differentiate similar lenses.
