Do all Nikon lenses fit all Nikon cameras?
People don’t have to buy new lenses just for the new cameras. That’s why lots of older Nikon lenses are still popular today—they can still be used for even the latest Nikon cameras. Still, this doesn’t mean that all Nikon lenses can be used for all Nikon cameras. That’s just not possible, even for Nikon.
Are Nikon lenses interchangeable with different models?
Yes, except for very old models before 1959. It will “fit” because Nikon has the same bayonet mount called the Nikon-F mount which hasn’t changed since 1959! So all the lenses are interchangeable with film SLR and DX and FX bodies.
Can you use any lens on a Nikon camera?
Hence, it is easy how to tell what camera a lens fits. You can use any type of camera lens to a camera body—given they are of the same brand. A Nikon camera will be compatible only with a Nikon camera lens —regardless if it is macro, fisheye, or standard lens. You cannot mount a Nikon lens to a Canon camera body.

Is Nikon and Nikkor the same?
But today, most of the Nikon lenses are branded with Nikkor. Even a basic cheap Kit lens will be branded with Nikkor. Hence ‘Nikkor’ stands for the lens brand of Nikon. To summarize, almost all of the Nikon lenses are clubbed under the Nikkor brand today.
Can you use old Nikon lenses on new Nikon cameras?
If you have older equipment, make sure you read them. The new Nikon Z mount takes all old Nikon lenses using the FTZ (“F to Z”) adaptor. It works perfectly with AF-S, AF-I and AF-P lenses.
Are Nikon and Canon lenses interchangeable?
No, Canon lenses cannot be mounted on Nikon DSLRs. Technically it is possible to design an adapter to do it, but you will not be able to focus to infinity. So while a 2.5mm thick adapter could be used on Canon DSLRs, it would be impossible to go in reverse direction on Nikon DSLRs.
Which is better AF-S or AF-P?
AF-P lenses use a “Pulse” motor or “Stepping” autofocus motor and are even quieter and smoother to autofocus than an AF-S lens, making these lenses ideal when shooting video with a DSLR. The DSLR camera bodies that do feature a focus motor can utilize AF and AF-S lenses.
What is the difference between Nikkor AF-S and AF-P?
AF-P is the designation used to distinguish these new lenses from Nikon’s existing AF-S models. The only difference between the new AF-P models is that the cheaper lens does not have Nikon’s VR image stabilization system.
How do you know if a lens will fit your camera?
The easiest way to find out which lenses your camera will accept is to look at the indicators on lens mount on the front of your camera. Simply remove the lens from your camera by pressing the lens release button and twisting the lens anti-clockwise.
Will any lens fit on any camera?
While lenses are interchangeable – in that a camera can use different kinds of lenses (standard, wide angle, macro, etc), they aren’t completely interchangeable, across brands and types of cameras. So finding the right lens can be much more complicated than picking one and attaching it to your camera.
What is the difference between FX and DX?
The DX-format is the smaller sensor at 24x16mm; the larger full frame FX-format sensor measures 36x24mm which is approximately the same size as 35mm film. Different NIKKOR lenses are designed to accommodate the different camera sensor sizes. DX cameras with smaller sensors are optimized for corresponding DX lenses.
What is the sharpest lens for Nikon?
The highest-placed zoom is Nikon’s highly regarded AF-S 70-200mm f/4G ED VR, but in practice the Nikon and Tamron 70-200mm f/2.8 lenses are only slightly lower placed.
What is the difference between D lens and G lens?
The only difference between Nikon AF-D and AF-G lenses is that an AF-G type lens has no aperture ring. G-type lenses, like all D-type Nikkor lenses, transmit focus distance information to the camera for 3D Matrix TTL metering systems, including flash exposure control.
