If you actually mean new then I don't think Nikon is making new anymore. If OTOH you mean new to you then most of mine are Nikon. I've got an 80mm that isn't and my 150mm isn't either. The 80mm was because I wanted/needed the extra stop of light at F/4.0 versus the Nikon f/5.6. The 150mm because it was a great deal.

They all seem pretty equal to me. Some of the lenses have features some people like. Lighted F/stop. etc. But they all seem to put good images on paper.
