List of Nikon F-mount lenses with integrated autofocus motor

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The following list of Nikon F-mount lenses with integrated autofocus motor includes F-mount lenses which fully autofocus on Nikon F digital single-lens reflex cameras without an autofocus motor. Today these are the Nikon D40, D40X, D60, D3000, D3100, D3200, D3300, D5000, D5100, D5200, D5300 models and all Nikon 1 series cameras with FT1 adapter. All Nikon Nikkor-lenses designated with AF-S (introduced 1996) and the older AF-I (introduced 1992) fully autofocus on these cameras.[1]

Other manufacturers have different or no designations for lenses including a focus-motor. AF Lenses without an autofocus motor do work fully, but lack autofocus-function on these cameras. Instead an electronic rangefinder can be used to find focus.[2] Listed here are nearly all recent autofocus-lenses, because all manufacturers except Tokina have included focus motors in their Nikon-compatible lenses for years.

On May 15, 2014 the list is supposed to be complete including 166 past and present lenses, additionally 26 compatible teleconverters and three lens extension tubes with support for integrated autofocus-motors. The lenses are ordered by manufacturer and minimum and maximum focal length.

Autofocus (AF) drive motor (Nikon D70/D70S) needed to drive older AF lenses without integrated motor. It is controlled by a coprocessor of the Expeed.

Lens nomenclature[edit]

The sequence of lens designations may differ in literature. See also full list of Nikon designations, Sigma designations, Tamron designations and Tokina designations.

  • Nikon AF-S/Sigma HSM/Tamron USD or PZD: The lens contains an integrated ultrasonic focus motor, which enables quiet autofocus operation. All Nikon zoom AF-lenses have focal length encoders added.
  • Nikon AF-I: The lens contains an integrated focus electric motor. This type was produced by Nikon from 1992 to 1996 and is rarely seen. In current production from Sigma/Tamron/Tokina with no designation used.
  • Nikon DX/Sigma DC/Tamron Di-II/Tokina DX: Denotes a lens that is designed for APS-C DSLR sensors. Use of this lens on a full-frame (FX) sensor will likely cause vignetting. All full-frame Nikon DSLRs are able to detect DX lenses and crop the image accordingly.
  • Sigma DG/Tamron Di/Tokina FX: A lens for fullframe DSLRs (FX) or analog film. No special designation for Nikon NIKKOR. All fullframe lenses can be fully used on DX DSLRs with the advantage of reduced vignetting.
  • Nikon VR/Sigma OS/Tamron VC/Tokina VCM: Optical image stabilization, also called Vibration Reduction, indicated by green background, a system used to compensate for vibration and other camera movement.
  • Nikon D: The lens is fitted with a digital sensor that tells the camera the distance at which it is focused, to allow for better exposure calculation. These lenses are compatible with Nikon DSLR bodies without built-in autofocus motors, but must be focused manually on these bodies. Metering does work, however.[1]
  • Nikon G: The lens is not fitted with an aperture ring, and is thus incompatible with some very old Nikon film SLR bodies.[1] All G-type lenses are also D-type.
  • All IF: The lens utilises an internal focus mechanism, which does not extend or rotate the front optical element.
  • Nikon ED/Sigma APO/Tamron (X)LD/Tokina SD: Indicates that the lens is fitted with Extra-Low Dispersion glass, which aids in reducing chromatic aberration and flare.
  •  : Lens is out of production and is not or extremely rarely available as new.

  3. ^ Although it will physically mount on original Nikon Nikkor AF-S and AF-I lenses (without modification), it is not compatible with AF-I or some older AF-S lenses because two electrical contacts used to pass certain lens information were removed.[3] Cannot mount lenses which jut out the F-mount.
