Amazon runs a great offer on a great lens – Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8 ED G. It has $360 off and sells for only $1439.99.
If you don’t like the weight and size of the new VR version, and of course don’t need the Vibration Reduction, don’t miss the offer.
We have a long, almost 20 years, relationship with Nikon. It was not very easy to write this article, especially on Friday 13th, and coincidentally on the 100th anniversary of Nikon.
After the marvelous F100 (1999), N80(F80) (2000), and FM3A (2001), my first digital camera from Nikon was Coolpix 4300. That little 4 mpx camera changed the way I was looking at Photography, when it was released in 2002. It was so small and convenient to bring everywhere that I found myself constantly taking pictures of everything, experimenting new techniques, and… I didn’t have to develop film anymore.
Several years later I bought my first Digital SLR and since then I have owned many models, including D80, D200, D5000, D5500, D7000, D800, D800E, D750, D810, and D850. I also had the chance to use many other models, so my overall experience with Nikon cameras and lenses can be considered to be at least “advanced”.
At the end of March, Amazon and some other stores are running huge discounts on Sony FE lenses. Amongs them are Rokinon discounts. Some of these lenses have exceptional quality and the current discounted prices makes them excellent choice for the Sony FE system.
The arguably best DSLR – Nikon D850 already made it’s way to the first happy customers. We have seen pictures of the box, the camera, unboxing videos, and happy owner’s faces all over the internet. We’ve also seen the first images coming from this amazing camera. ISO comparisons, and samples of its capabilities, especially when coupled with a good performing lens. Speaking about good performing lens, we are coming to today’s question. Why Nikon keeps pushing this mediocre performing lens (24-120mm) as a kit lens for it’s pro cameras?
