    which lens would be great for portrait and travel in the same time?

  • admin


    If you are talking about best (zoom) lens for Nikon D5600 for travel and portrait then we have two option
    1. Nikon 17-55mm f/2.8 Lens
    2. Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 ART for Nikon

    Both lenses are great, they are fixed aperture based zoom lenses.So, you can grab low-light shots with maximum details as well as you also CREAMY background blur aka Bokeh.

    I personally recommend you to go with Sigma, since No Nikon lens currently offers a F1.8 aperture zoom lens (they are limited to F2.8 only).

    Best Prime Lens for Nikon D5600 for travel and portrait

    If you are looking for a prime lens then you should get 35mm F1.8 lens for portrait + travel, since its will allow you to cover the entire environment as well as subject with beautiful bokeh. the FX50mm lens will give you 75mm focal length that will be too short for street work.

    Will the 18-140mm lense be a good choice for an all around lense for a novice that would prefer to have only one lense? Or would I also need the 18-55 lense that the camerra usually comes with?

  • admin

    Yes, I recommend you to go with 18-140mm lens with Nikon D5600. The Nikon 18-140mm lens is a perfect all-rounder lens, the image quality of the lens is astounding and sharp through-out the entire focal length.

    Hi, I have a Nikon D5600 with AF-S DX 35mm 1.8G, AF-P DX 18-55 3.5-5.6G VR & AF-P DX 70-300 5.6-6.3 G ED VR lenses. I sometimes feel the 18mm of 18-55 is not enough wide and considering an affordable wide lens. What are your thoughts for AF-P DX 10-20 4.5-5.6 VR from Nikon!? Also please recommend a travel tripod considering affordable price and carrying ability.

  • admin

    Well congrats on having Nikon D5600 camera and set of Lenses you have is also very usable.

    Nikon AF-P DX NIKKOR 10-20mm f/4.5-5.6G VR is a excellent lens if you want to go more wide than your kit lens.

    You can get Vanguard Aluminium Tripod or Fotopro for travel purpose
