epo001: Nikon should be ashamed by Fuji's after sales support. Fuji don't just fix bugs they provide functionality enhancements. If my D90 and P7100 were as well looked after as this I might not be looking so hard at Fuji.

Agree! I left the Nikon camp and joined Fuji for many reasons including Nikon's lack of support. It seems the company just doesn't care about their customers. Fuji does.

On Hands-on with the AF-S Nikkor 70-200mm f/4G ED VR article (258 comments in total)

Where's my mid-range Nikon 50-150 f/2.8 for DX??? Been waiting years for it but Nikon throws out another 70-200 full frame lens. I'm sure many will be happy with this lens but I want a DX! At f/2.8 with VR it would be faster and probablly smaller than this lens. Still waiting.....

V1 lenses and another full frame lens announcement? What about filling the holes in the DX lens lineup as well. I'm on the verge of jumping the Nikon ship to mirrorless with another company and this announcement pretty much seals the deal for me. Anyone want to buy my Nikon gear?

Tired of Waiting...

On Sigma USA announces pricing of 50-150mm F2.8 OS HSM article (105 comments in total)

645D: Make no sense to buy a DC lens when the FX lens are about the same price.

I've been waiting for this lens for the past year. Actually sold my 70-200 VR (1) because of the size and weight. Was hoping this Sigma would be smaller and lighter but the Sigma site indicates that this lens is nearly identical in size/weight to the Nikon 70-200 VR I sold. I am disappointed the Sigma, being a DX lens, is this big. Maybe Nikon will soon introduce a smaller 50-150VR. I'd happily pay more for a good 50-150 f/2.8 that was smaller and lighter than this Sigma.
