Nikkor lenses

Recommended Posts

Better late than never! I like the AF-S DX Nikkor 35mm f/1.8 for around $250 or so brand new, or if you want something longer and slightly cheaper, the AF-S Nikkor 50mm 1.8 is excellent, and they're both fully compatible with a D3100 DSLR body.

 

I find the often recommend 50mm FL better suits a fullframe/FX body as a walkaround, if that's what you're looking for, but it's important to compare and decide for yourself. Just using your kit zoom at the 35mm and 50mm focal lengths may help you decide.

 

BTW the D3100 does not have a focus drive motor. To use autofocus, the D3100 must be a paired with a lens that has its own motor built-in such as the ones above.
