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.
