  • Thanks for the reply. But for vertical, wouldn't I just rotate the lens on the collar like normal? Easier and more supportive than flipping a ball head.
  • Just realized what one of my concerns was...the BEAST of a monopod I have strangely only has a 1/4 post. So, when I have put a head on my monopod, I have had to use a thread adapter. But that ...
  • Thanks for the reply...and good stats. I hadn't looked up their support stats. Duh! Actually, the quick release was another reason I was wanting to use head. And I already have RC2 all over the ...
  • Replied in A local reply!
    Wow...what are the odds!!! An international forum, and not only do a get a reply from a fellow Nikon Friend in Houston 80 miles away, it is the person I bought the lens from!! Thanks for the reply. ...
  • Hello. I purchased a 300/2.8 for this upcoming high school football season. Last year I was using a 70-200/2.8 and hand held it...usually with a 2nd both with a short lens. I have a good sturdy ...
  • You completely missed what I was saying. Allow me to clarify. It would be risky for me to attempt to fly my Phantom while I was attempting to cover a wedding for a client. Two reasons: 1. I am not ...
  • An economy hood for the 18-105 works well with the new 18-300. And having used the lens a little, but seen what my wife was able to do with it, I am very impressed with the lens. I sold her 18-200 ...

  • Very interesting thread. I was gifted a Phantom Vision II in May by my wife...unaware of the potential for challenge.I didn't realize it was illegal for "commercial" purposes until just now. I had ...
  • Hello. Have you used a Polarizer with the 50-500? I have...but have not gotten good results. It could be because I got a S&W. The reason for the post is that I have an opportunity to get a used ...
  • Has anybody tried the HB-32? I have this from an 18-105 and it seems to do the job, although it fits just a tiny bit loose on just the 18-300...not on the 18-105. But little to no vignetting that I ...
  • Replied in Lens hood?
    Can't believe Nikon didn't include one. And, I can not seem to find a good one. I just received a generic one, but it required an adapter...which was so thick, the lens hood vignetted. Anybody ...
  • Because people are SUPPOSED to look up old threads rather than starting new thread. Net etiquette. Personally, I don't understand why some forums LOCK a thread after a period of time/inactivity. An ...
