Only one month ago I bought my 18 - 200 VRII. I'm very pleased with that one. But if they had introduced this one only one month earlier, I would have waited for this one. The 18 - 200 makes very good pictures.
What is the problem?Not the selling party, but the buyer decides what he or she want to pay.The market decides what the price will be. As soon as a seller does not sell his stock, he will lower the price. If his margin is to small he stops selling the article. The same will happen with Nikon. When in the coming weeks the selling from this cameras drop dramatically they will lower the price. The professionals don't care what they pay, because they just add something on the price they are selling.
I know this is harsh for the independent repair shops. But if special tools are needed for calibration, after repair, I only want my equipment repaired in a shop, that has that special tools. Repair is not only replacing defective parts. Bringing the camera or lens within the specs are essential to. I only want my camera and lenses in a repair shop, that is certified by Nikon.
No one is telling you to pay $ 3000 or more, for your wedding pictures. But never complain when you get a cheaper offer and you don't like the result.When a photographer can show you results, you like, he can deliver same quality and look and feel, for the price he is asking. That is where the pro is different from the amateur.
Kodak enabled for lots of people to be creative. To preserve memories and pictures, like no one ever could before. It hurts to see that their own inventions that made digital photography to what it is today, could not help them to survive. What went wrong? We only can read that in the years to come in history books. Although that will be only a part of the big picture. Even if the firm has to stop, doing business, the name will live forever.
99 percent of the film I used, were Kodak. The other 1 percent I did not buy myself. My first two digital camera's were Kodak. So I think I have a soft spot for the firm and the name. It would be sad, if only the name survives. In my opinion, the firm is in trouble, because they don't know the market of photography, or stil think they can tell the consumer what to buy. Now they see and feel what the market is about, it could be too late. It will be a black day for the world of photography if the firm has to close the doors forever.

She may be not the most beautiful lady, but I think this is the best picture ever taken of her.Great job of the person who held this camera.
Thanks for sharing this beautiful article. Great initiative. I will try to follow your workflow as described here.
Very good story. You are telling things, I somewhere had in my mind, but could not prove. I could not even find the right words to tell. Your equipment did help you to by that. And you have written some great articles. Thanks for this in depth article. It is of great help for me. Will be in my mind every time I buy a lens.
If you don't need the long focal length, you be better off with the Canon. Be aware the 24-135 acts as a 38-216 compared to a 36 mm equivalent. The main reason I switched over to a DSLR was the shutter release time. Because no compact or bridge camera can compete on that with a DSLR.
This could be a mighty sharp lens. But since I'm used to auto focus I hartely ever use my manual focus ones. Does not mean my camera is never On mf. But for this lens it is thanks, but no thanks.
Not that many enthusiastic people over here. Is that because
1. You never print at home2. You don't need A3+ pictures3. You don't mind what quality your pictures are printed4. You can't afford to buy the printer?
Although this printer is not a cheap one, even for my standards I will look and compare it whit the Epson R3000. Because I'm saving money, to buy a A3+ printer.While printing at home, I know it is more expensive then having them printed in a lab. But when I need a very good photo, right now, no lab can beat me. That for me is worth some extra money. And yes, when I want a lot and it can wait a day or so, I use the lab too.
Great. I see I do need to learn more about editing software. Perhaps have to buy some plugins, but than at least I can make some of my pictures look like I wanted while shooting. Great pictures here.
I love the glass part.
IEBA1: Intriguing. Wonder if there's an option for a grippy rubber surface.
Why not could the Olympus engineers think of this? It makes handling the cam more safe and accurate. For only a few bucks extra. Who knows they will react to what they read here? It even gives the cam a better and pro look.
