Nikon D7200
Nikon D810
Nikon AF DX Fisheye-Nikkor 10.5mm f/2.8G ED
Great image quality with strong dynamic range for an APS camera. Good autofocusing, lightweight and good battery life.
Stunning image quality with amazing dynamic range. Alittle heavy but worth it if you're looking for the best landscape images available.
My 'freaky shits and giggles lens'... love it for its small size and lightweight... amazing fisheye effects and pretty sharp. At a good price I'd recommend it.
Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 12-24mm f/4G ED-IF
Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 16-80mm F2.8-4E ED VR
Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR
Very sharp... lightweight... great lens hood... sharper than the 10-24... I recommend it.
Fantastic image quality with sharp images... lightweight... nice lens hood... produces pretty decent bokeh effect when shot at F4 (for a kit lens)... strongly recommended.
Great walk around lens for my D7200 and D500... pretty sharp for an extended range kit lens. Effective 4 Stop VR that will save your low shutter speed images... I recommend it.
Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR
Nikon AF-S Micro-Nikkor 105mm f/2.8G IF-ED VR
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 16-35mm F4G ED VR
Sharp image creator... very lightweight... strong focal length range... NOT as sharp as the 70-300 ED-VR (for FX)... but OMG... I picked it up for only $140 at the camera swapmeet... so I figured WTH... right?
Sharper than 5000 razor blades... fantastic 5 stop VR... great lens hood... amazing bokeh... produces stunning shallow depth of field images at F3.2 to F4... comes strongly recommended.
Amazingly sharp lens... much less expensive and more usable focal length range than the 14-24... I recommend it!
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 200-500mm F5.6E ED VR
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 24-120mm f/4G ED VR
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G VR
This lens is AMAZING... really sharp... pretty lightweight considering it's focal length... 4 stop VR is astounding... LOVE IT!
Great full-frame walk around lens... sharp if not shot wide open... lightweight with an effective lens hood... I recommend it!
Very sharp lens considering it's price. Much more usable focal length and much lighter weight than the 70-200... I recommend it!
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 85mm f/1.8G

Good image quality for APS camera... great autofocus... alittle heavy. Hampered and limited by low megapixel count and relatively noisy images at higher ISOs. settings.
Fantastic low light sensor in this cam... good battery life... hampered and limited by its 39 point AF system. I never had the sensor spots that many complained about.
Canon EOS 77D / EOS 9000D
