A photography enthusiast, especially owners of DSLR cameras certainly not satisfied just using the default kit lens, as well as the users of the Nikon D7200. There are some lenses that can be recommended for this camera. Of course, you can choose native-made lenses for the Nikon D7200, but you can also choose a third-party lenses such as Tamron, Sigma or Zeiss lenses. As we know The D7200 is equipped with 24.2MP CMOS sensor with no optical low-pass filter, and a high-end APS-C camera. Let’s find the best lenses for this great camera.

If you have a plan to select the most appropriate lens to create portraits, the that best suits is the size of a 50mm lens, so the Sigma 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art lens and Sigma 50mm F1.4 EX DG HSM. Both of them are of course the best prime lenses for Nikon D7200. All lenses are quite expensive compared to AF NIKKOR 50mm f / 1.4D and AF-S DX Nikkor 35mm f / 1.8G. Besides these lenses, you also can choose the Sigma 50mm f / 1.4 EX DG HSM lens and Zeiss Planar T 50mm f/1.4 ZF2.

The 50mm lens is very appropriate that you use to create portraits, which will produce the effect of blur in the background, while the face of the subject of your photo will appear bright, sharp with natural skin tone. You only need to compare the price and other features that may you get from one of the lenses.

In addition to the size of 50mm, you can choose the size of 85mm or 105mm lens for making portraits, and such lenses is recognized as a prime lens if you want to make the best portrait photo. Is this type of lens is also able to be used as a telephoto lens? Of course you can try, but you have to set the aperture accurately. You can choose the Sigma 85mm F1.4 EX DG HSM, you can earn half the price than the Nikon original lens, the Nikon AF-S Nikkor 85mm f / 1.8G, the Nikon AF-S Nikkor 85mm f / 1.4G. If you want a cheaper lens, you can consider the Samyang 85mm f / 1.4 Aspherical IF.

The 50mm lens is very popular lens to create portraits, which will produce the effect of blur in the background, while the face of the subject of your photo will appear bright, sharp with natural skin tone. You only need to compare the price and other features that may you get from one of the lenses.

If you are looking for a wide angle lens that supports Nikon D7200, perhaps you need to consider Nikon 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5G is Nikon’s best DX format wide-angle lens—it’s wider and sharper than any other comparable lens and excellent for landscape photography and architecture. You can also choose Tokina 11-20mm and 12-28mm or Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM lens is the best wide-angle lens, even better than AF-S DX NIKKOR 17-55mm f/2.8G ED-IF lens (According to cameraegg.org).

It turns out there are a lot of Nikon D7200 owners who do not want to bother to bring a wide angle lens or a 50mm lens that is specifically used to create portrait photos alone. The reason they are so reasonable, probably because it is rarely used. Therefore they will melengkali the D7200 with all-in-one lens, the versatile lens, and usually very pleasant was taken while on vacation.

It turns out there are a lot of Nikon D7200 owners who do not want to bother to bring a wide angle lens or a 50mm lens that is specifically used to create portrait photos alone. The reason they are so reasonable, probably because it is rarely used. Therefore they will melengkali the D7200 with a lens all-in-one, the versatile lens, and usually very pleasant was taken while on vacation. Besides FS DX NIKKOR 18-300mm f / 3.5-5.6G ED VR, which is very nice, you can also select Tamron 16-300mm f / 3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD MACRO or Sigma 18-300mm f / 3.5-6.3 DC MACRO OS HSM Contemporary.

The lenses are convenient to carry anywhere, without having to carry other lenses, because they can be used for a variety of shooting styles, certainly not as good as 50mm or 85mm lens, which is dedicated to making portraits. Similarly, if you want to create a macro image, then I  recommend that you choose lenses like Tamron 90mm f / 2.8 SP Di MACRO 1: 1 VC USD, Tokina 100mm f / 2.8 AT-X M100 AF Pro D Macro and AF-S Micro Nikkor 60mm f / 2.8g ED. If you had more than 1,000 US dollars, you can buy a Zeiss Makro-Planar T 100mm f / 2 ZF2 for about US$ 1,843.

Choosing a lens for a DSLR camera is like choosing accessories for your standard car, such as wheels, audio-video or speakers, which would have offered a variety of brands with a variety of prices. You just have to follow your conscience, and of course depends on your budget, and and be sure to follow with your photography needs.

The main reason: Why Nikon acquire Samsung NX tech?

Nikon has acquired Samsung NX technology, so it can be free to develop Nikon mirrorless camera because the Samsung is more master and experts in image sensor technology. Whether Samsung will successfully compete with Olympus, Sony and Panasonic?

Having previously denied rumors about Nikon acquired Samsung NX, the news finally proven. Indeed, there are pros and cons about this horrendous acquisition. According to cnnindonesia.com Samsung's employees who manage the development of the Samsung NX camera has been moved to another place. NX sales even reported to have been stopped in several countries.

Cnet.com also reported that it had bought a Nikon APS-C sensor 1 inch of Samsung and develop it, and then acquired the intellectual property for the NX camera technology systems, as well as using NX lens itself. This acquisition is a breakthrough for Nikon as a photography company, which is also the nearest competitor of Canon. Is this acquisition will strengthen the division of Nikon mirrorless camera? Of course, time will tell how the fate of Nikon mirrorless camera business in the near future.

Why Nikon acquired of Samsung NX? According DIY Photography kareena of Samsung has a great image sensor technology. Also reported that of Samsung will no longer be running the camera business, but will continue to produce image sensor, and the course will be made compatible with Nikon cameras, mirrorless cameras in particular. With the technological superiority of Samsung NX, Nikon could menghsilkkan Third Fourt Micro cameras or mirrorless cameras better than Nikon 1 series.

There is no official confirmation until now, whether as a result of this acquisition will also be produced image sensors for Nikon DSLR cameras. Nikon also has not provided information about the continuation of cooperation between Sony and Nikon in the field of image sensors. Perhaps Nikon will continue to maintain its cooperation with Sony specifically for the production of image sensors for digital SLR cameras only. Of course only those who are knowledgeable about the consequences that would arise of this acquisition.

Although Samsung has expertise in the field of technology image sensor for mirrorless cameras, but the presence of Samsung in the market mirrorless cameras are considered not able to compete on an ongoing basis because these companies did not have financial incentive to compete with Sony or Panasonic, and of course the Olympus who has the greater power to competed in the field of mirrorless cameras. Because that's very reasonable when Samsung finally close the camera division, and focus on smartphones and other products.

As with Canon, the Nikon does have a solid role in the camera market, in particular the availability of products from various segments, namely the entry level to professional level. Unfortunately, sales of DSLR cameras has declined in recent years. Does the presence of mirrorless cameras manufactured Panasonic, Olympus or Sony have affected the mindset and tendency of photography enthusiasts to mirrorless DSLR?

However, there are many people who think that Nikon diangggap wrong strategy by launching a series of Nikon 1, which has a 1-inch sensor, a small lens, moreover sold at very expensive prices. The product is considered not able to attract consumers, especially the professional segment. Sony, Panasonic and Olympus have a line-up similar cameras that have better features and technology, as well as Fujifilm. 

Nikon decision to acquire Samsung raises some pros and cons, but this decision is considered as a smart move, because Nikon could be more free to innovate and develop a mirrorless camera. Do you agree? Let us wait for further news.
