AF Nikkor 35mm f/2D

This was my first DSLR. I guess I can thank this camera because I am passionate about photography. It has simple and informative settings and menus. I’m still using this camera in many of my macro projects. It has an 18Mp image sensor that produces beautiful macro images. Since it was launched in 2010, it is really affordable on the used market.
