manual nikon lenses

No content

Best Buy customers often prefer the following products when searching for manual nikon lenses.

A manual lens for a DSLR camera is the type of lens that you don't just point and shoot, but instead set the aperture and focus yourself. They're called "manual" because they don't have any electronics in them to control the aperture and focus for you. They're also called "prime" lenses because they can't zoom in or out. They're typically smaller and lighter than an equivalent lens with electronic controls, and they usually have a wider maximum aperture. Browse the top-ranked list of manual Nikon lenses below along with associated reviews and opinions.
