  • Replied in Good catch!
    And just super! (being facetious) It's the only 35-105 out of 4 versions that uses that configuration! LOL 3 of the 4 use 16/12. FWIW, I also used mir.com for my reference (and looked it up before ...
  • One is on DX. The other is on FX. The efov is approx the same.
  • 16 in 12 My sources: http://imaging.nikon.com/lineup/lens/zoom/normalzoom/af_zoom28-105mmf_35-45d_if/index.htm http://mir.com.my/rb/photography/companies/nikon/nikkoresources/AFNikkor/AF28105mm/ind ...
  • They're both in a similar category.  The 28-105 is newer.  Optically, they're of a similar design (16 elements in 12 groups).  The 28-105 has a broader range.  There's really nothing negative to ...

  • Replied in Bellissimo!
    Yup. (I don't disagree but the comments and retouches re: C&C got to be a little over the top). A $2000 lens with a $5 filter smeared with vaseline coming to a studio near us all soon!  LOL  Cheers!

    Alana is a lovely lady. Very enchanting!  You are a very lucky photographer! You shot jpeg in a high contrast scene. The only thing I don't really like is the posterization (color transition) in ...

    I don't think Simon2001 is saying that all Americans are illiterate.  I think he's correlating illiterate Americans to Donald Trump supporters... so only 20-80% of the US population, depending on ...
  • Replied in The other 18-300
    You have the 18-300s confused. Regardless, for basic photojournalism and basic video, a zoom will get the shot. YMMV
  • If your daughter will use it for general use, it requires a DX lens. The 18-300 6.3 version will give her photojournalistic range and it's not as heavy as some alternatives. Sell the 55-200.  As ...
  • Replied in 105 at last
    Really nice.  Models will be cringing!  :-(  Thank goodness for Photoshop!

    My lenses cover from 180 diag. fisheye through 500mm, 2 FX and 1 DX bodies presently. If I were to re-organize with just primes, off the cuff, I would have a Samyang 14/2.8 (not sure what Nikkors ...
  • Glad you liked! (I sold... 6 bodies and... 8 lenses in the last 6 months for similar reasons.) About the 70-200 VR III that may make its way, I would still ditch the f/4 and go through the process ...
  • Sell: (1) D7100 (2) 18-140 (3) 16-35 (4) the optically inferior 24-70 (5) the 24-120 if you keep the 24-70 vr (6) 28 1.8 (7) ...
  • Thanks for the link, noflashplease. Yes, it's not clear-cut and ultimate usage affects utility. I've seen the photographyblog review (and so many other reviews); it helps to go back and look again. ...

    I feel VR helps in most circumstances but the 2.8 VR is an older VR and not as effective as some of the newer VR implementations.  If you are usually at 1/500th or faster, sure, the non-VR lens ...
  • ...but you probably have a positive feedback rating with current feedback. It's an old scam, however, to resurrect a dormant account with positive feedback with the expectation that the original ...

    For eBay, love it or not, I only use PayPal & tracked shipping. I only deal with sellers with good feedback and I reserve the right to cancel bids from poor/no feedback buyers. You can stipulate ...

    Wow. Someone needs to investigate your local postal depot.
