Most of the links on this page will take you to a corresponding forum thread and rating poll specifically for that lens, whereas some of them will link to a summary page for that lens. We are in the process of building new pages for each lens, where readers will be able to find useful information on each, as well as relevant links to discussions and articles on Nikongear.com and external sites.
If you have used the lens and you are a member of the site, please feel free to add your own insights to each item you have used by following the links on either this page or the summary page. Please keep your comments on topic and read the guidelines for the board before you make your post. All new posts made to these topics are moderated prior to being published, so don't expect to see it immediately after posting.
