Nikon DL24-85 vs Nikon DL18-50: More Than a Lens Change

Nikon DL24-85 vs Nikon DL18-50

Already back in February Nikon announced three new camera’s in its new DL range. Two of these three cameras look very similar. The Nikon DL24-85 and the Nikon DL18-50.

The main difference is the focal range which is 18-50mm for the DL18-50 and 24-85mm for the DL24-85. Big surprise right? At a first glance this seems to be the only difference. However, it turns out that more subtle changes are made. In this Nikon DL24-85 vs Nikon DL18-50 comparison we list all the differences we found so far.
