NIKKOR Lenses by Nikon
For over 75 years Nikon has designated NIKKOR lenses as their highest-quality imaging optics. Today NIKKOR optical glass is offered as standard and is integrated into all of Nikon's imaging products. The lenses have many useful features to capture a variety of subjects.
DX-NIKKOR lenses are engineered specifically for Nikon DX-format cameras. DX lenses can, however, be used on Nikon FX-format cameras (in the camera’s DX Crop Mode). DX lenses are not compatible with Nikon 35mm film cameras.
