Hey all,

My first post here

I've done extensive research on the topic, but I haven't had much light shed. Basically, I'm looking for a list of the fastest Nikkor DX lenses. I've compared my lenses (18-55 and 35 1.8) to the Canon equivilants, and the Canon lenses seem to just focus instantly, while the Nikkors lag behind. I understand that focusing is more than just the lenses, but also the camera; I have a D5100, so I'm only looking for AF-S lenses right now.

So, basically, what are some DX Nikkor lenses that focus very quickly like the Canon 18-55mm?

Thanks!

Focusing on my Nikon 24-70 f2.8 is instantaneous and accurate, even in very low light conditions without AF Assist Illumination from the camera.

As others have said, the Nikon 50mm f1.4 G is not fast compared to the 24-70 but still perfectly adequate.
