    Just a quick question for nikon photographers, what lenses are you guys / gals using? I see canon offers lenses around 87mm but nikon does not. Are those lenses that much better? Durring a sport event I see photographers with the huge grey canon lenses just wondering what nikon offers in comparison.

    Nikon has two 85 mm lens one is a f/1.4 and I think the other one is a f/1.8

    For just about every GREY Canon lens there is a BLACK Nikon lens that's equal to it ...

    C'mon man, once you go Black, you never look back! :lol:

    It's no feat to find what Nikkor lenses are available.

    Good luck.

    One thing nikon has over canon... 40+ years of lens compatibility. If you can't afford the $10000 modern 600mm f4 afs lens, then you can always opt for a $3000 manual focus 600mm f4 lens with optics that are of equal quality.
