I am looking for suggestions on which Ai or Ai-s Nikon lenses can stand up admirably on the new the full frame bodies, let’s just stick with the 24 megapixel versions.

I know the new Z lenses are in a league of their own but I am wondering if there are some of these Manual focus, cheaper lenses that can at least not embarrass themselves

I guess I would mostly be interested in wide angle but really anything up to maybe 105 mm or 135 mm.


All will work just fine. AI lenses are generally built better, less plastic and glue and more brass and screws. Most AI lenses have the same coatings as AI-S and many have identical optical formula. Better to study them individually before committing.
