    Years ago when I prepared to purchase my first digital SLR. Like many, I was choosing between the superpowers that were/are Nikon and Canon, however unlike many I had both systems. I had a mixture of Canon SLR’s like the manual focus Canon AE-1 and the autofocus Canon Elan IIe and a Nikon F100.

    My decision came down to many things such as price point, what I was shooting, and ultimately how much of the photographic equipment I currently had would be applicable to my new investment? Having an equal number of lenses and flashes on both Canon and Nikon I choose the Fuji S2. Based on the Nikon N80 it felt right in my hand but more importantly any Nikon F mount lens could go on it. All Nikon camera would accept the F mount whereas the Canon would not.

    Today, Nikon continues merging the old with the new. Given the lack of full frame, Nikon’s new 35mm 1.8 gives photographers that 50mm 1.8 everyone needs, has, wants. 50 years of technology, and going strong the Nikon mount is this year, but more importantly this is not a lens that will eventually be a paperweight or a decision maker or breaker for an aspiring photographer. No sleepless night for him as I had the night before emptying my bank account on a digital SLR, Nikon F mount lenses are timeless.
