When I first start up photography in year 2000, before I bought my first film SLR and my first lens, I did some search in the internet on lenses.
I want to get a Nikon SLR and I want to get original Nikon lens.
I searched for Nikon lens…but couldn’t find Nikon lens. What I saw and read was Nikkor. So, what is Nikkor? Is Nikkor = Nikon?
The answer is YES. Nikkor is the lens brand that Nikon use for their lenses. All Nikon lenses are called Nikkor. So, next time when you went to buy a Nikon lens and the shop keeper gave you a Nikkor, don’t be surprised! It is NOT third party brand but official Nikon lens! 😀
