Been away for a while, what did I miss?
Nov 25, 2012

I used to post a lot on here.  I am looking into getting back into photography in a big way.  I have been shooting, but haven't looked at any developments from Nikon in the past few years.

What I have:

Nikon D300

16-85 VR

70-300 VR

105VR micro

Sigma 50 f/1.4

Sigma 10-20 (old version)


Thinking about getting something longer and/or better than the 70-300

Haven't had any problems with the equipment except yesterday while shooting the 70-300, which is a lens I haven't used in a while, it would not auto focus 90% of the time.  When I got home, I cleaned the contacts and put some Benchmade balisong knife oil on the focusing ring.  Now it works just fine.

I was looking online and saw Nikon has a 70-200 f/4... Seems nice, but I know I would rather have the f/2.8  I remember the f/2.8 used to be $1600, now it is $2400!?

What developments have I missed out on, camera-wise and lens-wise, in the past few years?

Nikon D300
