Best Lenses for Nikon D6

As Nikon’s flagship DSLR, the Nikon D6 (Amazon, B&H, Adorama) is designed specially for professional sports photographers and photojournalists, and it has the most powerful AF performance in its history through significant improvements over its predecessor, the Nikon D5 (released in March 2016). The AF sensor built into the D6 is approximately 1.6x denser, and supports three times the number of selectable cross-type focus points than the D5, demonstrating superior focusing performance. Adept in both photo and video realms, the Nikon D6 revolves around a 20.8MP FX-format sensor and an EXPEED 6 image processor that enables an impressive 14 fps continuous shooting rate, a native sensitivity range from ISO 100-102400 (expandable up to ISO 3280000), and UHD 4K video recording at 30 fps. Promising unparalleled low-light performance, powerful agility, advanced 4K UHD multimedia capabilities and a mechanical shutter frame rate boosted to a staggering 14fps, the Nikon D6 will redefine the way pros work. And the Nikon D6 is constructed of the same magnesium alloy as the D5, ensuring a strong and durable, dust- and drip-resistant body that never misses decisive moments, even under the tough conditions.

So, if you are the lucky one who have already got the Nikon D6 flagship DSLR camera, the next thing is to find the best/right lenses for your Nikon D6.

I am 49 years old, born and raised in Los Angeles, and currently living in Las Vegas. I studied fine art and photography in college, eventually graduating from Cal State University in Fullerton with a degree in Art. Thought my emphasis was in Drawing and Painting, I took many photography classes which turned my art towards a more gritty, realistic direction.
