In Topic: Nikon at competitive pricing? Why not?

06 November 2014 - 11:51 PM

Camera and lenses are extremely low margin items, frequently sold for close to cost. By the time they take a cc and give you free shipping, its pretty much break-even. Where yu can get deals is on accessories, particularly if they are third-party.

The I-DAS clamps have been redesigned with a stainless insert and work much better now.


In Topic: advice sought 16-35mm or 17-40mm

This has been hashed around here quite a bit, do some forum searches.

 

All are good; the Sigma 15mmFE is also a favorite for full frame, focuses close and is very sharp; I think it's a copy of an older Canon lens design. The Canon 8-15FE is pretty cool too.

 

Personally, I'm much happier with primes than zoom on full-frame.

We've had two people drop out, so we now have a Superior Cabin available for $3880/pp each.

 

This is going to be a great trip: new, luxurious boat, height of humpback whale season with mantas, sharks and dolphins thrown in for good measure! If you want to shoot BIG animals, huge schools of fish, then this trip is for you!

 

Get in contact wilh me asap if you're interested.
