D5100 70-300 Lens

Wages in so off to order a Nikon 70-300mm f4.5-5.6G AF-S VR NIKKOR Lens
and a SB700 flash.

Any advice before I buy.

I am getting them from harrisons in sheffield ( just round the corner from me.)

399.00 for the lens and 249.00 For the flash. Going to try and sort a deal.hopefully.

I know its cheaper online but like to support the local shops when I have the money and can.

Bravo!

I also try to support local businesses where I can.

As it happens the price of the lens is the same as the lowest listed on Camera Price Buster UK, and the flash is within 22 of the listed price, so you are not doing so bad by using a real shop

Re: D5100 70-300 Lens

I don't think you will be disappointed with the lens as from what I have seen of -Oy-'s photostream on Flickr the results are very good. Just to note, if you are going to try bargaining a very reputable Nikon dealer (Grays of Westminster) has it at 385 .

Re: D5100 70-300 Lens

Well that didn't go quite as planned.
Asked for the lens. She took it out of the display and went to look for the box.
Me - errr can I have a boxed one please.
Her - O were out of stock I can see if we can order
err there is none in stock at our warehouse we must be waiting for an order.

so I asked the question. Can you knock me a bit of as its x display.
Her - err its not been in there long.

So as I realy want the lens I bought it. Be dammed if I am ordering the flash.

On the up side I asked for a uv filter for it and she showed me the cheep and expensive one.
I went for the cheep on and she got confused and put both in the bag. So one plus.

Looks good to me! now inprove on that, birds can be tricky you need to practice on the focus and for every good picture you take will have a few failures........but most of the failures can be salvaged in Photoshop or whatever you use...best of luck....

Re: D5100 70-300 Lens

Yup, looking good Birdies are another level - not just the lens but getting them sitting still for long enough to get a decent shot, or tracking their movement successfully or getting close enough to fill the frame.
