Re: Best Affordable Zoom/Telephoto Lens Option for a D800

I was very impressed with it, those pics are straight out of the camera and all at 500mm handheld , it is supposed to be heavier than my Tamron but it did not seem to be , and the VR seemed to work better , focus speed seemed about the same , only has zoom lock at 200mm , Tamron has lock at 150 and ...

Re: Best Affordable Zoom/Telephoto Lens Option for a D800

The MKpanomachine got sent back I think because it had AA battery's in the package I think that might be the reason , they can be a bit funny about them things in postage , so it lost a lot of time there , that's what the German postage hick up was ,

Re: Best Affordable Zoom/Telephoto Lens Option for a D800

Destiny yes it sounds like a good idea :) , and very appropriate for a VR company , but I think they would be a very internet type company an office and a small warehouse and not much else or most work is probably done at there homes including warehouse , 51 point focusing works ok if there are bird...

Re: Best Affordable Zoom/Telephoto Lens Option for a D800

Destiny I would not buy the current 24 to 70 or 70 to 200 vr2 lenses they are just not worth the money they just have too many faults for the money , if 24 to 70 was same price as Tamron yes , and if 70 to 200 was as good as Canon one I probably would , cheers Rolly1

Re: Best Affordable Zoom/Telephoto Lens Option for a D800

Destiny yes I thought about the M2 gigga instead off a motorised head ,but I don't think they have perfected it yet , I keep loosing count with the NN5 , it needs more click stops , and it won't handle the 150 to 600 either,I must admit I am not confident in selling the NN5 it will not help that I a...

Re: Best Affordable Zoom/Telephoto Lens Option for a D800

Hi Mediavets I must admit I am very confused with the R10 , the way I read it ,it only works with with the sigma 8mm fisheye , or a zoom fisheye it does not say anything about the Nikon 10.5 ,or other lenses maybe I am missing something cheers Rolly1

Re: Best Affordable Zoom/Telephoto Lens Option for a D800

very good ,the picture gives me an idea of the size of things looks a large tripod , before I ordered GH1 I thought about off setting the GV2 so the lens was over the centre of the tripod ,when using it as a gimbal it hangs of the side not easy to move around , I am selling my NN5 and getting an R1 ...

Re: Best Affordable Zoom/Telephoto Lens Option for a D800

Yes I did try that , I did say that I had a quick play with it , I will have another go as soon as I can , but if you look at proper monopod heads , they only move in one plane ,ball heads go where ever they want depending on where the weight is , when you do the friction up tight they don't move at...
