    Looking at the D7200 question on lenses????

    I am looking on possibly getting a D7200 with the 18-140 lens. Of all the Nikon lenses I want to get some primes and log zoom lenses. Am I limited to just the DX lenses only or can the FX lenses work with no problem. I do not see in there catalog any long primes or zooms in DX format. I want an APSC format camera and want to get some long lenses in Nikon if possible. Feedback appreciated Bill

    Welcome to Nikonites!

    FX lenses will work just fine on DX cameras.

    Welcome to the forum.

    I have a D7100 and the 18-140 was my favorite lens for it. I also have a 70-300 which is a FX lens that I use on both the D7100 and my D750 which is a FX camera. I also have a Tamron 150-600 which is a FX lens and it works great on my D7100. On DX it becomes a 225-900 zoom.

    Thanks gentlemen. I am looking at the 80-400 and also a 300mm prime. This solves a lot of problems.. Thanks again Bill

    I also have the 80 400 on my 7200. Absolute magnificent lens.

    In fact I prefer the fx lenses and of my 5 lenses only one is a dx lens.

    I haven't used the 80-400mm but have read quite a bit about it and seen a fair few unhappy customers. It seems to me that the 200-500mm f/5.6 which I own is much more universally well liked. It is sharp at 500mm wide open and everywhere else through its focal range. I have also seen a fair few comparisons between it and the new 300mm f/4. The 300mm is sharper without a TC and much smaller but if you plan on using a 1.4TC with the 300mm, the 200-500mm will out perform it.

    If I were you I'd buy the 200-500mm, you won't be disappointed.

    Thanks for all the feedback it is greatly appreciated. There is a good lens selection from Nikon. I am moving from Canon to Nikon. I have had 4 Canon cameras. Years ago I had a Nikormat 35 mm camera in Germany and really liked it and it took great pictures. I think its time to go back to Nikon especially for there glass. I will look at the 200-500 also. For sure I will be getting a 300mm lens also. I have used a TC before and had good luck with them. I am not opposed to using one again.
    Do you guys use UV or clear filters on your lenses? I usually use them in heavy wind or at a sandy area. Thanks again. Bill

    I have two 18-140 and it is the "best" zoom for the 71/7200 (DXO) both the 18-200 and 300 are horrible .. if you need a bit more reach just crop its no problem .
    Make sure you have the fine focus adjust dead on mine seem to need - 5
