Camera Accessories are as vital to the setup as the camera body itself. Without the use of the rather obligatory camera accessories, clicking images or shooting videos will be a nightmarishly tough ask. In that category, camera lenses and Lens Mounts play an important role.
Camera lenses are, pretty much, mandatory in every sense as far as ICL Cameras or Interchangeable Lens Cameras are concerned. These cameras are the ones used by both amateur as well as professional photographers.
The different types of Interchangeable Lens Cameras in the market right now are:
- Mirrorless Camera
- DSLR Camera etc.
As far as the major brands are concerned, Nikon Lens as well as Nikon Cameras have a stellar mark on the market as well as the community. These lenses are not at all similar to each other. Not even talking about the work these lenses do individually, but how exactly these lenses fit to the camera.
These lenses fit to the camera according to the lens mounts that they are assigned with. These lens mounts are the perfect fits for camera body which doesn’t let any sort of dirt, dust or other foreign objects to enter the camera system.
The Most Popular Nikon Lens Mounts
Nikon Lens have a fascinating market right now. Being such an incredible brand for the past few decades in both the film type as well as digital cameras, Nikon has a strong foundation to work on whatever pleases it.
When it comes to lens mounts, Nikon lenses are also scattered accordingly. These lenses come in different lens mounts so as to fit not only cameras from Nikon but also from other brands. Obviously, this doesn’t include direct competitors to Nikon, but you get the idea.
The most popular Nikon lens mounts right now are as follows:
- Nikon Z (Flange Focal Distance: 16mm)
- Nikon 1 (Flange Focal Distance: 17mm)
- Nikon F (Flange Focal Distance: 46.5mm)
- Nikon S (Flange Focal Distance: 34.85mm)
Out of the four mentioned Nikon Lens Mounts, the Nikon F Lens Mount is the most popular choice. The photographers as well as the brand itself have Nikon F on their radar. It houses, pun unintended, the maximum number of lenses from Nikon.
As of now, the best Nikon F-mount Lenses are as follows:
- AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G
- AF-S VR Micro-NIKKOR 105mm f/2.8G IF-ED
