"FS: Nikon 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5G ED AF-S DX"
Sun 06-Jun-10 10:25 PM by reuben


Like new. $699 + shipping. PayPal only please.

I purchased in August from B&H with USA warranty. Lens is great but I decided ultra wide was not for me and the return deadline had already passed. I took about 20 photos total and it's been packed back in the box ever since because I've been too busy/lazy to advertise. Warranty card is blank, still have original receipt. Long time pbase member: www.pbase.com/nkhare . Contact me through Nikonians.

Thanks,
Jay

Hello! I'm so new here that I don't even know
what my $75 bought me, as concerns a Gold /
Silver etc. level. But I am very glad to have met
you! I brought back with me from Viet Nam 3
Nikons, all "F", and very manual (!!) My widest
lens is is a very old 28mm. I'd like to go wide,
and your lens is very suitable for me. TWO ques-
tions. 1. Will a lens such as yours allow me to do
all of my favorite manual tricks, and not mess me
up? ( I am MUCH more clever than any "smart" lens!)
2. And if it WILL work, would you consider $599,
with you paying shipping to Indianapolis...or we could
split it? RSVP via Nikonian, or ABC4V@YAHOO.COM Thnx.

Welcome to Nikonians!

If you'll pardon the intrusion, I will try to help out here

There are two main issues with using a lens like the 10-24mm on an older film camera.

Firstly, the 10-24mm is a "DX" lens, which means it is designed for Nikons like the D300, D90, D5000, etc, which have a sensor that is much smaller than a frame of 35mm film. With the lens on a Nikon F, you'll get pictures with the corners cut off.

Secondly, the 10-24mm (like all newer Nikkors) is a "G-type" lens. This means it has no aperture ring and on a camera like the F you would have no way of controlling the f/stop

THANK YOU FOR YOUR EXPERTISE!! So, here am I, really desiring that w/a/zoom, but owning the wrong body. SERIOUS QUESTION : what is the least expensive"D" body you'd advise that I can use, and also use my manual lenses? Thanks. Rex.

Hi, Rex.

If you're looking to buy new, the D300s gives you the most flexibility with manual focus lenses. Lower-end cameras like the D90 and D5000/3000 limit your options for metering, though Ai and Ai-S lenses do mount, and will work in some modes.

If you'd be happy to consider a used camera, the D200 would be the cheapest option that still maintains full capability with non-AF lenses.

In response to Reply # 4



Thank you all, greatly. I DO want manual focus. My home-work
will be on the -200 and -300 types. I do not require speed, but do
like to compose from the viewfinder (does stop-down still work on
these D- machines? I do not require auto-focus either.) And, lastly,
will my work-horse 50-300 zoom (1967 mintage) work at-all on the
digital bodies? Thank you all, again. Rex

I think we're straying from the purpose of the "Want to Sell" forum, so to take this further I'll direct you to our D300/D200 Forum and Manual Focus Lenses Forum.

The best of luck with whatever you decide

In response to Reply # 4



Hello, Brian.
My initial experience with Nikonian was in my search foe a wide-angle, zoom PC lens -- and I found it here, first try. The price was US$1260, I believe, and when I had returned after finding those funds, I had lost track of the seller of the lens. Can you help me know where to search? Thank you. Rex.

Dear Brian,
I am in the midst of doing a LOT of shopping, and I find myself continually
referring to you comments and suggestions. Again, Thank You Kind Sir for
your welcome "intrusion" into my newbie questioning. I'll be having fun!! Rex
