Okay Cindy ... I'm blaming you for my next purchase.
I've been on the fence for weeks, but seeing this pushes me over.
Back in the late 1990's when I really began to learn about 35mm film, Bryan Peterson had some terrific images taken with a wide angle lens. He'd lie on the ground and capture flowers near ground level shooting upwards. I could set my camera on the ground but really don't want to do that. This way, I can set the platypod down on the ground. With my D750's articulating screen, I won't have to lie down while keeping my camera safe and angled upwards. :encouragement:
Ended up purchasing new from Amazon. Adorama has them on backorder.
Most used wouldn't have arrived in time for my south american trip.
Thanks for the heads up. I will check to see if they will honor that sale price.I thought of you as soon as I saw this lens went on sale for $100 off today. Check with Amazon and ask to get back the difference in price. Usually they will providing the difference is at least $20.
Nikon is running a lens sale on several of their lenses in case anyone is interested.
Thanks for the heads up. I will check to see if they will honor that sale price.
*update* I talked with Amazon customer service. They used to have that policy but now they don't.
The only way I can take advantage of the price difference is to return the lens and wait for the refund... then purchase it again. Only reason I went with Amazon on this was because Adorama had backordered them and I wanted it for the trip. I'll see where I am at with this once I return. I may just return the lens to Amazon and buy from Adorama. I really don't like Amazon for anything
Picked up a used Tamron 90mm f/2.8 macro lens for $260 (basically $200 US dollars.) Based on all the reviews, I think I got this for an amazing price and it should be a good upgrade from my Nikon 40mm macro.
