Nikon AF 18mm f/2,8 D


Nikon AF 18mm f/2,8 D
This is a prime lens manufactured by Nikon and the model was launched 1994.
The lens belongs to the category  wide angle prime lenses, a wide angle lens where you do not have the possibility to zoom in and out.
It's been a long time since the lens and this model first was launched. Before you buy an older (and perhaps used and pre owned) lens a recommendation is to check with the manufacturer and their service centers whether there still are spare parts available. Hopefully spare parts wont be an issue but imagine accidently damaging the lens and finding out afterwards that no spare parts exists. We therefore recommend that you, to be sure, check this prior to purchasing.
If you buy a new lens, in a store, you always have your warranty to fall back on, regardless of the age of the lens but if you are interested in buying a pre owned and used lens without warranty this may be even more important to look up because you might otherwise be left without both warranty and spare parts.

Compability, auto focus and focal length
This lens is constructed to fit all models of Nikon cameras, regardless of camera model or type of sensor.
The possibility to use auto focus (AF) is available for Nikon cameras but only if the camera itself has a built-in auto focus (AF) motor. Some cheaper and budget camera models from Nikon lacks a built-in auto focus motor, and we at Lensora appreciate auto focus, so in the list of compatible cameras we have chosen to display only the cameras that you can get autofocus with.
The lens has a focal length of 18 mm. Depending on which camera the lens is used, the experienced and perceived focal length will be different. Please visit the list of compatible cameras below, it will provide the equivalent focal length you get on each camera.

Lens brightness and image stabilizer
The lens brightness and aperture value is f/2,8.
This aperture value indicates that the lens is very bright.  This will make it so much easier shooting in darker environments where you do not want or can use flash lighting, for example in churches or at different sports venues.
The lens lacks image stabilization, which otherwise os good for avoiding the blur that can occur when using slow shutter speeds. Since the lens is bright, with good aperture value, the lack of image stabilization might not be that big of a deal, although a image stabilizer is always an advantage to have.

Filter and Lens Hood
The lens has a traditional filter thread on the front and its measuring 77 mm which also the filter you will use must have. If you use for example an UV filter can be a cheap insurance against scratches and dust.
As for the lens hood we at Lensora unfortunately have no facts or information whether a lens hood is included or not. Do you know more? Please contact us.
