Tempting. I could probably use this as a walk-around lens. I need to do some research to check out the optical performance.

Regards,

Glenn

Well personally I love it, and hate to give it up. I'm losing over $300 on the deal. Shoot, the UV filter on it was $50.

It's light, focuses relatively fast and is sharp as a tack.

But I'm selling all my FX gear and going with a Fuji X system. So there's no need to hang on to it.

Well, Ken Rockwell says... just kidding.

I wanted to vouch for JB. I sent payment to him this morning and the he shipped this afternoon. My new baby is scheduled to arrive Thursday between 12:15 PM - 4:15 PM, approximately.

Hope the lens checks out for you, Glenn.

Regards,
Brent

My new baby is what you shipped today. Woo-hoo!

I do have my 3-years-old granddaughter for a sleepover tonight. Poor thing's had to deal with Grandpa taking pictures with his newly-acquired 85mm f/1.8D.

The only camera on the market that would lure me to FX from my D7100 is the D700, which you have one for sale. All I've read about the D700 is it was a one-off, too-good-to-be-true-set-of-features-for-the-price camera, that Nikon will most likely never repeat.

Thanks again.
Brent

Ohhh! THAT baby! Lol. Color me stupid.

Yeah (Insert heavy sigh) it's a remarkable camera. I love it. I've driven most of Nikons camera bodies since the D200 and there is nothing like it for the money. Actually I prefer it to the D600 or D800. Even today, long in the tooth though it may be, it takes great pictures. It so easy to use. The buttons are exactly where they should be. I know my way around the camera with my eyes closed. You can reach every control you need to while you're in the process of shooting and never take your eye from the viewfinder. The auto white balance is outstanding, the ISO performance is all I've ever needed and it just feels so good in your hand.

I hated to sell the 70-200 but selling my D700 feels like I'm selling my dog.

It has to be done though. With my back I can't carry a bag full of camera equipment and lenses around any more. And I can't afford the Fuji X system I want without selling my SLR stuff.

Brent / JB,

I am not questioning any members here. This is the main reason why I have kept my membership since I joined because of the great deals that you can find here and the members are trustworthy.

Glenn
