The Usual June Lens Discounts

NikonUSA today announced instant rebates on 27 lenses (full list below).

Normally I go through every lens individually and assess which lenses you should really consider. Because the rebates are all relatively modest this time—maximum of US$200 on US$2000 lenses—doing the Full Monte seems a little like too much. So let me break it down this way:

  • The Bargains — the 70-300mm AF-P and 200-500mm f/5.6E were already bargains in my book. The discounts make them even more enticing. 
  • The Reasonable Trio — the f/2.8 zoom trio gets US$150-200 discounts, which makes them reasonably priced. 
  • The Fast Primesall the f/1.4 primes have discounts that may push you over the edge if you've been considering them.
  • For Z Users — The 10-20mm DX for Z50 users and the 70-300mm AF-P for Z6/Z7 users are lenses that fill a gap in the Z lineup when mounted on the FTZ adapter.
  • Everything Else — discounts always help, so all are welcome. But nothing really stands out to me as being worth noting.
