Destiny wrote:Hi... Zoom/Telephoto lenses can be quite expensive... I would really love a good zoom lens from 300mm to about 500mm... I would like it to fit onto my D800. I have read some info that a few none-Nikon lenses can work well but then some information I have read contradicts the use of the lens or provides confusing information.... Once I feel which ever lens is ok for my needs, I will search for a second hand one.... No need to buy a new one for the amount of photos I take... I would love a Nikon Zoom to be honest but they are very expensive....
Destiny wrote:I don't want the lens to make money Klaus.. I want a zoom/telephoto lens since there are so many beautiful old buildings and wildlife sooo far in the distance.. I do not want to do gigapixel images ether.. This is just for single shots photos.. well, bracketed with the old colonial buildings.. Up in the mountains there are some beautiful water falls too but soo far away.. Hard to get to... Perhaps I should have explained what I need it for... The other day there was big Wedge Tail Eagle sitting on the fence.. It was there for nearly 20 minutes... It was almost as big as me.. http://www.google.com.au/search?sugexp=crnk_timecombined&gs_rn=26&gs_ri=psy-ab&cp=26&gs_id=1b&xhr=t&q=australian+wedge+tail+eagle&safe=active&bav=on.2,or.r_qf.&bvm=bv.52164340,d.aGc&biw=1180&bih=805&dpr=1&um=1&ie=UTF-8&hl=en&tbm=isch&source=og&sa=N&tab=wi&ei=HQozUtePMeXMiAfOtICYAw
Loved to have taken some photos of it.. but too far away...

Destiny wrote:I personally never go over 300 ISO for most things.. 100 for indoors always. I was wondering if there was some kind of attachment that could fit with my 14-24.. Its a great lens but provide little in the way of zoom.. If I could fit a middle lens to it, but not sure if this even possible, bit like an extension....

they should do about 1000 dollars or less (less is more in this case). Also be patient. I bought a manuall 300 mm IF ED for a song and a dance once.
