I have to begin my list of Nikons best lenses with the one I personally like the most, the famous Nikkor 200/2 lens. Compared to other tele primes it’s rather small and light (at least at 2,9 kg it’s lighter than other primes) and it’s bokeh is gorgeous. And the fast f/2.0 really help’s a lot when you are an available light fan like I am. Even with teleconverts the lens delivers good results. While far from cheap it’s worth every penny.
