Whether you want to take portraits or nature shots, Nikon is known for its superior camera lenses. The company added several new products to its repertoire in 2013, and they did not disappoint. Below are some of the top picks from the Nikkor line:

Top Nikon Lens Releases in 2013

Wide-angle zoom lens: For landscape or architectural photography, it is essential to have a wide-angle lens. Weighing in at only 385g (13.6 oz), the Nikon AF-S Nikkor 18-35mm f/3.5-4.5G ED is a light and compact choice. The lens is also relatively affordable, selling for around $750. It is designed for use on Nikon’s FX (full-frame) SLRs. Key features includes two extra low-dispersion (ED) and three aspherical elements as well as Silent Wave Motor for quiet operation. For a look at the lens in action, check out some of the sample images on the Nikon website.

Prime lens: There is nothing like a prime lens for sharpness and speed.  Nikon introduced the AF-S Nikkor 58mm f/1.4G, which is one of the company’s premier lenses. Intended for Nikon’s full frame SLRs, the lens promises to deliver sharp, high-resolution images, even at the maximum aperture. Of course, the superior image quality will cost you. The lens sells for approximately $1,700. For those looking for a more basic, affordable lens with a throwback appearance, check out the retro  Nikon AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.8G.

Telephoto zoom lens: Nikon’s newest telephoto zoom lens is an update to a classic. The AF-S Nikkor 80-400mm F4.5-5.6 G ED VR updates the decade-old 80-400mm lens. New features include four ED elements, a “Super ED” element, and Nano-crystal coating, which is designed to reduce glare and ghosting. The new and improved vibration reduction minimizes camera shake by offering a shutter speed equivalent to 4.0 stops faster. You can also turn off the feature to conserve battery life.  The price tag, however, is steep at almost $2,700.

    was researching on Aol for something else,
    Anyways I am here now and would just like to say kudos for a tremendous post and a all round enjoyable blog (I also love the theme/design), I don’t have time to browse it all at
    the moment but I have bookmarked it and also added in your RSS feeds,
    so when I have time I will be back to read more, Please do keep up the great jo.

  5. At this time it appears like Movable Type is the preferred blogging
    platform available right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you are using
    on your blog?

  6. Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this site. It’s
    simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s hard to get that “perfect balance” between usability and appearance.
    I must say you have done a superb job with this. Additionally, the blog loads
    extremely fast for me on Firefox. Superb Blog!

  7. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I truly appreciate your efforts and I will be waiting
    for your next write ups thanks once again.

    There’s a lot of people that I think would really appreciate your content.
    Please let me know. Many thanks

  9. Do you have a spam problem on this site; I also am a blogger, and I was wanting to know your situation;
    we have created some nice procedures and we are looking to swap
    solutions with others, why not shoot me an email if interested.

  10. I have been browsing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting
    article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me.

    Personally, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net
    will be a lot more useful than ever before.

  11. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add to
    my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter
    updates. I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for
    quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like
    this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog
    and I look forward to your new updates.
