Lens Shopping

Photography & Lenses.

With the kids being active in sports again, and with my wife’s prodding I’m starting to take an interest in photography again. I had a reasonable collection of 35mm Minolta based camera stuff that simply has no value now that the world has gone digital.

Now that I’ve made the switch I’m looking at the following lenses. If you have experience with either and or a good outlet to get any of these at a really good price let me know.

70-200mm f/2.8G ED-IF AF-S VR Zoom-Nikkor

The grand dady, with vibration reduction. Retails for about $1500 (ouch), supposed to buy you up to 3 shutter speeds.


80-200mm f/2.8D ED AF Zoom-Nikkor

The same thing withought vibration reduction. Retails for about $950.


Sigma APO 70-200mm F 2.8 EX DG/HSM

A non Nikon lens, Retails for $750-$800.
