Hi all, I had been using a 17-35 f/2.8 af-s that had developed a squeak over the years and then would stop auto-focusing intermittently till it eventually jammed completely. Coming from a non-Nikon repair center part of the world, I once tried getting an estimate and repair evaluation at Nikon Thailand but was told that I was to wait for 2 weeks and because I was there on business for a few days couldn't leave it there. (a shutter replacement on a D600 took almost 3 months by Nikon...
I have a decision to make and I'm having trouble getting good advice. I bought a brand new AF-S NIKKOR18-35mm f/3.5-4.5G ED lens a few months ago ($750 new) but was just given a damaged AF-S Zoom-Nikkor 17-35mm f/2.8D IF-ED for free ($2,000 new). In perfect condition, obviously the second is the better lens, and since they two lenses serve basically the same function for me, I'm trying to decide which to keep and which to sell. The 17-35mm lens was given to me used. It's about 8 years old and...
I am in a predicament regarding my next purchase. I really want to take the step to FX (I shoot Nikon). However, I only just recently (last summer) bought a d7100. If I were to buy an FX body, I would feel as though I was spending too much on bodies and not glass. I am in dire need of a proper wide angle, as I use a 35mm f/2 and a 80-200 f/2.8 on my DX body. When I shoot, it feels very cramped with the 35mm because of the cropped sensor. Should I invest in wide angle glass that would would be...

Hi, I've spent the last few days reading endless reviews and am seeking some guidance. I currently have a Nikon D5100, Sigma 10-20, Nikon 18-105, Nikon 50 f/1.8, Nikon 70-300. Lee 100mm system. Manfrotto 190CXPro3. I'm a constantly learning enthusiast into Landscape & family & club competitions. Considering selling the 10-20 to fund a Tokina 11-20 f/2.8 (I love UWA and would like to dabble with some occasional astrophotography). & upgrade to the D7200 with perhaps a Sigma/Tamron 17-50 f2.8 or...
