Comparing New Camera Lens

   
    Last week I broke down and replaced my broken Nikon D60 with a D5300. After a large amount of action shots with the 55-200mm Nikon lens, I was very pleased.  However, I'm so tired of always needing to swap out my 18-55 mm lens with the 55-200mm lens.  For the longest time, I've wished the 2 common mm lens could be combined. So, yesterday, I broke down again and pulled out the bucks.  I was amazed the lens would cost more than the camera!
     I shopped around online & the other big box stores, but my local specialty camera store, Murphy's Camera had the same price at their store which meant no shipping & slightly cheaper than the big box stores.  When I got to Murphy's, the gentleman showed me another brand name that was $300 less!  After trying it out on their Nikon, I was impressed.  Murphy's has been in business a very long time, so I didn't think they would be selling a sub-rated brand.  I thanked him tremendously for saving me several dollars & finding a lens that cost a bit less than my camera.
    
 The rose shot was only about 12 feet from me.
The dock was over 100ft from me.

I'm VERY pleased.
I no longer have to swap out lens,
& best of all, the camera bag doesn't have to tag along to carry the other lens.
Now I'm ready for my Grand Daughter's graduation.

  1. Congratulations on the new camera and lens! The most important part of the equipment is the lens, anyway. It looks like you have a nice combination.
