Viltrox is one of the few third-party companies that makes autofocus lenses for the Nikon Z system, and I've been eager to test their lenses for a while. The Viltrox AF 24mm f/1.8, which I'm reviewing today, is a full-frame autofocus lens available both for the Nikon Z system and...

If you want a 24mm prime lens for the Nikon Z system, two of your options are the Viltrox AF 24mm f/1.8 and the Nikon Z 24mm f/1.8 S. There’s a major price difference between them, but at least both lenses have autofocus capabilities and a Nikon Z mount! So, which one should you get?
I had the chance to test the Viltrox AF 24mm f/1.8 and Nikon Z 28mm f/2.8 extensively in the field – part of my quest to find the best wide-angle prime for the Nikon Z system! Both of these lenses aim for low prices rather than maximum performance, but which is actually better?
One of the few companies that makes third-party, autofocus lenses for Nikon Z (and for Sony E) is Viltrox, a Chinese company focused on prime lenses. The AF 24mm f/1.8 and AF 35mm f/1.8 caught my eye, and I tested them side-by-side in the field and in the lab. Here’s what I found.
Following last month’s development announcement of the Tamron 35-150mm f/2-2.8 for the Nikon Z system, the lens was officially announced today for a price of $1999. Tamron says it will be available starting September 21st, and you can already pre-order it on B&H and Adorama.
How does print size affect the emotional feel of a photo? It may seem like an image that works at one size will be equally good at any size – but in practice, I don’t find that to be true. Instead, the best print size changes from photo to photo. It’s all about what you want to say.
I've had the privilege to test all of Nikon's Z-series midrange zooms extensively over the last several years, both in the field and in the lab. Nikon hasn't been shy about making them, either! There are six full-frame Nikon Z midrange zooms so far, ranging from the cheapest 24-50mm f/4-6.3...

Tamron has just announced the development of their fascinating 35-150mm f/2-2.8 zoom for the Nikon Z system! Although the lens has been available for Sony since October 2021, it joins the Tamron 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3 as the second official Tamron lens with a Nikon Z mount. Here’s what we know.
It’s finally happening – the Nikon Z roadmap is just two lenses away from completion. All that’s left now is a pair of S-line primes: a 35mm and a 135mm. Although anything could happen, it looks like Nikon won’t release another update. We’re essentially at the end of the roadmap. So… what’s next?
