  • Nikon 50mm f/1.4G AF-S Nikkor

    8 out of 10 points and recommended
    small and light, sharp
    a little prone to ca as i would expect

    i got this lens a couple of days ago and mounted it on my D60. makes for a very light combo. overall image is quite good... very sharp when stopped down to 2.8 and sharpness peaks at around 5.6, imho.

    highly recommended for a dx - short portrait lens.

  • Nikon 16-85mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX AF-S Nikkor

    sharp overall, vrII works great. the extra 2mm wide open makes a big difference
    a bit slow in low light. expensive

    i've had this lens for over a year now, and i must say it has held up pretty well. build quality is excellent, and vrII works very well. overall sharpness is good and makes for a nice walkaround lens. i make sure to bring this whenever i go with my out of town trips. very usable zoom range.

    there's no real glaring weakness of this lens, so i would highly recommend it. ditch that kit lens and go for this!

  • Panasonic 45-200mm f/4-5.6 MEGA OIS LUMIX G VARIO

    8 out of 10 points and recommended
    bang for the buck, makes for a great travel lens, compact and light
    slow lens and hunts focus in low light

    got this lens recently to compliment my 14-45 & 20mm pancake on my GF-1. Good image quality esp. when you shoot raw. Nothing much to complain given the price point and performance. Definitely recommended!
