New Infrared Lens Tests for Nikon Z

Thanks to some readers, I’ve been able to update the Nikon Z Infrared Lens Performance Chart with some new glass.

  • Nikon 40mm f/2 Z Nikkor (tested by R. Walker)
  • Nikon 18-140mm f/3.5-6.3 DX Z Nikkor (tested by R. Walker)
  • Samyang 14mm f/2.8 for Nikon Z (tested by S. Cella)
  • TTArtisans 11mm f/2.8 fisheye for Nikon Z (tested by S. Cella)

Of these, the 40mm Nikon appears to be the best performer; not perfect, but definitely good enough for most situations. Another interesting result was that the 18-140mm DX Nikkor Z performed reasonably well, which bodes well for Nikon DX mirrorless users contemplating an infrared conversion.

  1. I don’t know if it is available yet, but I wonder if the Kolari HSK (Hot Spot Killer) clip-in filter improves IR performance on some lenses that otherwise are not too dood. Have you tried any of the Kolari clip-in filters on a Z camera?
