Tamron AFA011N700 SP 150-600mm F/5-6.3 Di VC Preorder

Tamron AFA011N700 SP 150-600mm F/5-6.3 Di VC

Tamron AFA011N700 SP 150-600mm F/5-6.3 Di VC Took the plunge and pre-ordered the Tamron AFA011N700 SP 150-600mm F/5-6.3 Di VC lens from Amazon.

Nikon 50mm f/1.8G AF-S FX Lens for Nikon Digital SLR Cameras -Pre Order

  Nikon has announced the Nikon 50mm f/1.8G AF-S DX Lens #2199 and its available to pre-order from Amazon.com and Adorama. I don’t need to rehash what Nikons press release thoroughly covers. I saw a slide of images taken with this lens that were stunning. The best thing about this lens besides the image ability is its cost of about $219. Folks considering this lens for a Nikon DX camera like a D90, D5001 or D7000 keep in mind the lens will not be 50mm it will be closer to 75-80mm with the crop factor. Another way to look at is you wont see the edge defects that you would see in an FX sensor camera.     MELVILLE, N.Y.
