In Topic: Nikon 60mm vs Nikon 105mmvr

07 May 2013 - 12:44 AM


I'm referring to Nikon 60/2.8 AF-S. Sorry!

The 60 AF-S is an internal focusing lens and it has a very fast auto focusing skill, more faster than  the 105 AF-s VR.


Obviously 60 is too short focal on FX format  :aggressive:



Is the 105 AF-s VR an internal focusing lens?

Goddit! :-)

Thanks John. So, is 640LUX a usable device or just a worthless toy? If it's useful, why is it so cheap? I've been reading about SOLA 1200s at GB£300 and more. :-s

In Topic: Tamron 90mm Macro

It sounds like they are having trouble with the focussing motor contacts. History to me 'cos I went to a Nikon lens instead.

This is interesting. I have a Tamron 18-200 and a 70-300. The 18-200 is my "walking about" lens. I find it's intermittent in autofous and, sometimes, my D60 says it can't find the lens at all!

I'm thinking about buying the 60mm macro but, on reading your post, I'm thinking harder. It IS a full F stop faster than the Nikon one.

Has anyone any experience with Westfield? http://www.divingins...m/equipment.htm I just came off the 'phone to them and they sound very credible.

In Topic: A VERY good reason to buy equipment insurance!

I'm with Mike Weitch, when I saw this I also thought "what's Canon got to do with this?" If the dude has an insurance policy, then the insurance company should pay. Like previously posted, this forum is full of people who have had that awful experience at some point, but I can't recall anyone who would have asked the camera equipment manufacturer to replace gear. If anything, if the case manufacturer (Pelican?) made some claim that the case will never flood, then perhaps one could understand him going to them, but even that is far sought.

What if; Ben were to sell "shares" in his professional photography business and used the funds to buy his new equipment? Then, when he had enough money, he could buy back the shares, at the appropriate percentage of the current nett value of his business. The "shareholders" would feel they were making a contribution and, when Ben bought back their stake, they'd make a profit.
