p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Nikon equivalent to the canon 15-85 mm crop lens?


So I was looking at selling the rest of my canon gear and picking up the d5200. I like to have my crop camera ready to go as a video option while the full frame does photos.

The 15-85 covered a really good range with the canon rebel I had. Anything close with Nikon?

It doesn't have to be quite that wide, but it'd at least be nice to be of that level of quality. Is the 18-105mm anywhere close in quality... at least for video?

Oh, and one more question on the d5200:

Can you take stills in video mode without exiting the video mode and having to restart it?

Can do this with the canon line...

Nikon has a 16-85 VR which is quite capable and a little better than the 18-105.

Can't help you with the video as I don't use it.

the 16-85 is what you want. Better than the 18-105 like Chris said. The sigma 17-70 might be a good one too.

Thanks for that. Man, I'd love it if the 18-200 would cut it for video, but not sure. I'll have to do some reading.

I've had both the Canon 15-85 and the Nikon 16-85, and the IQ is similar. The difference is that the Nikon lens is a smaller form factor and significantly lighter. It's a great lens.

Have the 16-85VR and love it. It's a great lens to have on DX.

For video, you only use 2mp. ANY lens will do if they are not soft.
I would choose 18-300 for 1 lens does it all video. (Canon 15-85 is quite useless in video due to HUGE distortion at 15mm, for photo's it's easily correcte, but for video your movies change from 1080p to 720p or less when correcting distortion.
