Rokinon/Samyang 35mm f/1.4 for Nikon (Tokina 16-28 and 35/2.8Macro, Nikkor 50/1.4G)
Nov 13, 2011

I just posted some Nikon mount lenses on eBay. These are from my personal collection. I sold my D700 and went with a D7000 with only 2 lenses (17-50 and 50-135mm) for shooting events, and don't have a use for these anymore.

First up I have a Rokinon 35mm f/1.4 lens. This is an excellent 35mm lens for an FX camera. It works great for DX too, but is a fairly large lens so their might be smaller alternatives.

Secondly I have a Tokina 16-28mm f/2.8 lens, which is a great ultra wide for FX. The only drawbacks are that it is heavy and can't take filters, but is very sharp in the center and corners are great when you step down the aperture a bit. This copy is good optically. I didn't notice any decentering.

Thirdly, I have my Nikkor 50mm f/1.8G. Not much to say about this. It performs about the same as the 50mm f/1.4G I had. Bokeh is very similar, sharpness is very similar, but this is a less expensive lens. Focus is faster with this lens, but manual focus is more difficult (it has shorter focus throw).

Finally, I have a DX lens listed as well, this is a Tokina 35mm f/2.8 Macro. This is a great standard lens that focuses to 1:1. The lens is beautifully built.

I am experimenting listing from my iPhone, so my descriptions are terse. I was using the dictation mode to get as much as I could
