Photography Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for professional, enthusiast and amateur photographers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I've followed Canon photo products for years and I can't go past this great expert resource on Canon cameras, lenses and few other accessories photographer should know about and read before buying anything new.

I used Canon non-digital SLR for years, and never really bothered to buy myself a digital version. But I decided to do so this spring.

The thing is that I can buy second hand Nikon DSLR. I know the owner so I know that camera is tip top and not much used. But I'm hesitant on Nikon lenses. Which ones provide good value for the money etc.

That's why I'm looking for similar web expert resources but focused on Nikon products.

See also photo.stackexchange.com/questions/1520/lens-review-sites which lists Nikon and general-purpose lens review sites. –  drewbenn Mar 7 '11 at 16:30

Also keep in mind that some of those questions will be completely on topic here. –  mattdm Mar 7 '11 at 17:08

This question and photo.stackexchange.com/questions/14546/… need to get together and have a little party. –  mattdm Nov 14 '11 at 4:39

Try Thom Hogan's site. He is a professional photographer who uses Nikon gear and writes a lot about them and I do mean a lot. Unlike another Nikon photographer, his opinions are usually very well balanced.

He's a little less balanced when speculating outside of Nikon, though. –  mattdm Mar 7 '11 at 14:23

+1 for another Nikon photographer - agreed! –  Grant Palin Mar 7 '11 at 16:56

NikonGear.com has reviews and an active forum

Also NikonCafe has very active forums and you can find reviews and comments on just about anything Nikon-related.

You have to take some of his advice with a grain of salt, but Ken Rockwell has a ton of information on Nikon equipment, sample shots, comparisons, history of various lenses, good explanation of all the Nikon terminology (AF-D, AF-S, AI-S, VR, IF, ED etc etc)

A very large grain of salt. Some of the stuff he just flat out makes up (and will say so!). I'd vote this up if it didn't have KR in it. –  rfusca Mar 7 '11 at 22:49

Neither of these is just Nikon (although DTown TV used to be), but dpreview.com has a lot of good Nikon reviews and an active forum, and DTown TV is a nice place to pick up tips on gear and technique in a podcasts format.
