    Re: Post your latest purchases.

    Very disappointed in the way my Tamron 15-30 (V1) acts on the Z and my other wide lens is for crop sensors, which the Z has no way of over riding and AUTOMATICALLY switches to crop when the lens is twisted onto the camera.

    Thanks a lot, Nikon. I'll show you!



    So I just bought a 14-30 from Nikonusa refurb sale.

    Excuse the poor quality photo but just thought I would quickly share my new addition to my Nikon collection . This older version with the 77mm thread is the one I had been looking for and at 186, I felt it was a good bargain as it seems to be in very good condition. I know this version requires the use of the cameras internal focus motor and I am wondering what the lifetime expectation is for these motors. I sometimes hear that these motors burn out with a lot of use. For the above lens, i will mainly be using for landscapes (probably on my d7100 for now. Don't want to risk my pride and joy D500 internal motor), therefore the focus motor will not be used that much. It's not as if I will be using it for tracking subjects.
    If I get the similar results to what I can achieve with my wide angle Canon gear then I could become a full Nikon guy as I will likely sell off my remaining Canon stuff

    Good find!!! If you have a DX camera and want a wide angle lens, that right there is one of the best available! I believe I have the same one, but mine is not the screw drive version, I can use it on my old D40x that has no focus motor in the body. There are lens hoods available on Ebay, if thats something that interests you. I like using hoods especially at night. It helps keep the dew off the front element and helps control stray light.

    Re: Post your latest purchases.

    In early April, I posted here that I'd acquired a refurbished D3500/AF-P 18-55m VR lens kit. It was the result of a Nikon Refurbished Camera Sale that had a 10% discount on top of the refurbished price. I've particularly enjoyed how lightweight it is compared to my D7500 and D750 cameras and how good the images are that it produces. Fact is, I've done a lot more shooting with this "entry level" camera than I thought I would.

    All of this got me thinking that it would be nice to have a similarly sized DX body but with a fully articulated touch screen and more focus points even if it weighed a bit more. Wait a minute, I thought...you once owned that camera. The very first DSLR I bought was a refurbished D5600. I sold it a year later along with several lenses to help fund my D750/24-120mm f4 kit.

    Long story short, I was able to trade my D3500 (body only, I kept the lens) for a lightly used (~ 4,800 shutter count) D5600 on MPB.com. The trade in value was essentially equal to what I paid for the D3500 less the cost of the kit lens. I ponied up the dollar difference to complete the deal this morning and this afternoon I got the tracking number for the shipment. Free delivery is scheduled to be not later than next Friday.
