Decision Time Has Come


I NEED SOME URGENT ADVICE PLEASE.
I HAVE SOLD MY NIKON 18 - 70 LENS. I HAVE A WEEK IN WHICH TO BUY A NEW ONE.
I KNOW I HAVE ASKED THIS BEFORE BUT NOW IT'S CRUNCH TIME.

DO I BUY A TAMRON 18 - 200 , TAMRON 18 - 250 , OR TAMRON 28 - 300.

THE 28 - 300 DOES NOT SOUND VERY GOOD ON BUILD QUALITY, ALSO LOOSE A LOT
ON WIDE ANGLE END, WHICH IS NOT A GREAT PROBLEM . BUT I AM REALLY NOT SURE
ON THE OTHER TWO.

AS MUCH AS I WOULD LIKE TO I CANNOT AFFORD THE NIKON 18 - 200 VR.

SO HELP PLEASE P. S IF I COULD AFFORD THE NIKON 18 -200 VR ,IS IT WORTH THE EXTRA MONEY ? THANKS

To be honest Woody,if I was you I would have kept the 18-70 and bought a 70-300 or similar!.Depends what are your photo priorities.I assume that you,like me,want a reasonable quality single 'do almost everything you need' lens?.In which case is the wide angle of 18-200/250 more important than the extra reach of the 28-300?.I have a Sigma 18-135 and am happy enough with results and build quality.Afraid I cannot comment on those you mention.

Re: Decision Time Has Come

Woody - what a dilemma!

The Nikon does get really good press. Can you get an advance on your Christmas pressey? The VR technology might be of great use to you too.

My view is that 28 is not wide enough, so we are left with the 18-200 and the 18-250.

I've always belived that high ratio zooms are less desirable than one of around 3 or 4:1. The old standards zoom of 24-70 and 80-210 fell into this category. However, lens technology has moved on in the meantime, and although all of these lenses are above that ratio, I suspect the image quality has not fallen off in the same way it might have done back then.

I can only suggest that you get as much information as you can on the Sigma 18-200 and 18-250 to choose between them. But if I could, I'd go for the Nikon. You know it makes sense!

Re: Decision Time Has Come


THANKS DABHAND, CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR PROMOTION TO THE PIXALO CREW.

I HAVE TRIED GETTING AN ADVANCE ON THIS YEARS CHRISTMAS PREZZIE BUT NO JOY

I KNOW THE NIKON MAKES LOTS OF SENSE, BUT I AM TRYING TO JUSTIFY THE PRICE.

HAVING THE V R WOULD BE A GREAT ADVANTAGE FOR ME, AS I HOLD MY CAMERA
WITH ONE HAND, IT WOULD STOP CAMERA SHAKE, HOPEFULLY

STILL BOILS DOWN TO THE FACT IT'S ABOUT 250 DEARER THAN THE TAMRON , IS IT
THAT MUCH BETTER.

AS THIS WILL BE THE ONLY LENS I WILL BUY FOR THE FORESEEABLE FUTURE , I WANT TO MAKE SURE IT'S THE RIGHT ONE. A LOT OF SLEEPLESS NIGHTS AHEAD
I THINK.

Re: Decision Time Has Come

I'll make it easier for you . I had the Nikon 18-200 for a few weeks. Didn't have much time to play with it, but it was beautifully built. BUT... how long is the waiting list for one these days.....not long ago it was up to 4 months. If that is still the case, are you willing to wait ? If not, it helps you slim down that selction

Re: Decision Time Has Come


I KNOW WHAT YOUR SAYING ABOUT DELIVERY TIMES DAVE.
CAMERAWORLD SAY THEY HAVE IT IN STOCK, SO DO A FEW OTHER PLACES I HAVE SEEN

BUT HAVE THEY REALLY GOT IT. A FRIEND OF MINE ORDERED A NIKON 18 - 70 PLUS
A NIKON 70 - 300 V R FROM A B C DIGITAL CAMERAS. THEY TOLD HIM THEY WERE IN
STOCK, FOUR WEEKS LATER THEY HAVE ONLY JUST GOT THE 70 -300 IN.

THEY SAY THERE IS NOW A DELIVERY PROBLEM WITH THE 18 - 70.
THIS IS THE REASON I HAVE SOLD HIM MINE NOW, AS HE NEEDED IT URGENTLY.

I THINK BECAUSE OF THESE DELIVERY PROBLEMS, A LOT OF PLACES ARE HIKING THEIR PRICES UP. PRIME EXAMPLE JESSOPS WANT 299.99 FOR THE NIKON
18 -70 MM , WHICH I THINK IS EXTORTION.

UNFORTUNATELY WITH INTERNET SHOPS, YOU DON'T KNOW WHETHER THEY HAVE
THEM IN STOCK OR NOT.

Most folk here rate one-stop digital as being a pukka place. You can e-mail to ask if they have stock.

Re: Decision Time Has Come

Woody if this is going to be the only lens you are going to buy in the foreseeable future. Then definitly a nikon 18-200 vr. No doubt about that. If I ever manage to get the money together then I think I would go for the 18-200 vr. And I would wait untill I could afford it, which is certainly not going to be in the next year or so

The reviews are good, the lens is supposed to be fantastic. Can't you borrow the 70-300 from your mate so you still got a good lens to shoot with.

Re: Decision Time Has Come

ITS HARD TO READ CAPS

I didn't read all of your post but agree the 18-70 is a nice lens and hard to beat if you like zooms and don't want the silly priced 2.8 zooms

you could try a 50 1.8 and the 70-300 vr if you don't mind loosing wider angles - good quality and reasonably priced combo

Re: Decision Time Has Come

ok regards the CAPS I looked back http://www.pixalo.com/community/came...mise-9547.html

people who don't know why may question it (well I did at least),. you shouldn't need to explain yourself but then again if there was a note in your sig,. I don't mean a long missive explaining all the ins and outs,. it might help ppl to understand

just a thought,. I will be less lazy and try to read your posts next time

THANKS DUTCHIE, I HAVE MADE UP MY MIND, THIS IS THE LENS I WANT,BUT AT THE
MOMENT CAN'T FIND ANYONE THAT HAS GOT IT IN STOCK.

WEBSITES SAY THEY HAVE IT IN STOCK, BUT WHEN I HAVE PHONED, THEY SAY IT'S
OUT OF STOCK.

UNFORTUNATELY CANNOT BORROW MY FRIENDS 70 -300 AS HE COVERS MOTORSPORTS



SILVER THANKS FOR YOUR ADVICE.

Re: Decision Time Has Come

That would give you some more time to gather the money.

And I know myself. When i've got my eye on something and go for the cheaper solution. I still end up buying what i wanted in the end. So it gets rather expensive. Now I don't do that anymore, i need to learn how to be patient and wait till I can afford what i want

But have you tried onestop, cause they are good.

Re: Decision Time Has Come


WELL I FINALLY TOOK THE PLUNGE, TODAY MY NIKON 18 - 200 VR LENS TURNED UP.

I TRIED EVERY WEBSITE I COULD FIND OVER THE WEEK-END, THAT SAID THEY HAD IT
IN STOCK, MADE A LIST AND PHONED THEM ALL YESTERDAY, ALL OUT OF STOCK
WAITING FOR A DELIVERY.

ONE COMPANY I PHONED, CAMERAWORLD TOLD ME TO RING GRAYS OF WESTMINSTER,
THEY ARE A SOLE NIKON DEALER, AND SURPRISE SURPRISE THEY HAD JUST HAD A
DELIVERY.

I PROBABLY PAYED A BIT OVER THE ODDS, BUT IT'S SUPPLY AND DEMAND.
IT'S LIKE THE SAYING, YES OURS ARE 10 WHEN WE HAVEN'T GOT ANY.

ALSO GOT A GOOD DEAL ON A NOIKON 72 MM UV FILTER.






PLUS I ORDERED A SB 800 FLASH FROM THEM, WHICH WAS LUCKILY A CHRISTMAS
PRESENT.

ALL ITEMS TURNED UP THIS MORNING AS THEY SAID,ALSO THEY GIVE A TWO YEAR

WARRANTY WHICH IS A BONUS.

SO FAR VERY PLEASED.



AS SOON AS I HAVE READ UP A BIT CAN'T WAIT TO POST THE RESULTS OF MY PICS
WITH NEW LENS AND FLASH.

THANKS FOR EVERYONES HELP AND ADVICE WITH THIS , AS WITH ALL YOUR HELP I
FEEL I HAVE MADE THE RIGHT DECISION. EVEN THOUGH WE WON'T BE EATING
FOR THE NEXT 6 MONTHS

Re: Decision Time Has Come

Well done Woody. I think you made the right choice I know Grays having worked close to their location for many years. I used to use them for bits and info for my Rollei before they went 100% Nikon.

If things get too desperate, let us know and we'll send a food parcel!

Re: Decision Time Has Come

With a camera like that, a lens like that and a flash like that....

~ You don't need the credit card (and nor can she use it as you have maxed it!)
~ You want some peace and quiet so the spare room is ideal
~ Who needs telly?

Have fun Woody

Excellent choice - I know someone who switched from Canon to Nikon just because of that lens.

Looking forward to seeing the results!

Re: Decision Time Has Come


HI ABERKILL, I USED CANON MYSELF, FROM 1980, BUT CHANGED TO NIKON IN
OCTOBER LAST YEAR, WHEN I DECIDED TO GO DIGITAL.

I NEVER THOUGHT I WOULD CHANGE, BUT FROM A PERSONAL OPINION AS FAR AS
DSLRS ARE CONCERNED I FIND NIKON BETTER.

HAVING USED FILM FOR SUCH A LONG TIME, DIGITAL IS A GREAT ADVANTAGE BUT A
WHOLE NEW LEARNING EXPERIENCE, BUT I AM ENJOYING IT.

HOPE TO POST PICS SOON.
