    The writer seems to believe that Nikon wil target the Sony A7, but surely the bar has moved on with the A9 already on sale?

    Re: Starting up my Wife with a setup

    What you need is a macro lens, but dedicated macro lenses will probably eat your whole budget, unless you are prepared to look at second-hand kit.

    You do get cheaper solutions, such as extension...

    Re: Possible Tripod head for a monopod

    I use a monopod head as you linked to.

    But I almost always put the other end of thr monopod into a belt pouch, rather than on the ground, which would be impossible without the head.

    If you want...

  9. Re: Sigma 150-600mm Contemporary vs Nikon 200-500

    Take your kit to the shop, take a few pics with your lens, strap on the 200-500 and test it.

    Preferably, use a tripod and manual focus through zoomed-in live view for at least a couple with each...

    Never been to either place, but if it were me I would leave the 24-105 and take both bodies.

    Re: 70-200 nikon/ tamron or 300 2.8(new one)

    I think the 400 f4 PF is a brilliant travelling lens, but I doubt it has any significant advantages in this application over the existing 200-500?

    Re: Nikon EN-EL15 charger

    Gerhard, if you want to drop by, we can see if one of my batteries works in your camera?
    I am in Kempton Park.

    Battery cannot be charged through the USB cable.

    Re: Nikon EN-EL15 charger

    Gerhard, I have a Hanel universal charger for Nikon. This handles the EN-EL15 and also has the advantage that it can charge from 12 or 220V. If I remember correctly, it was about R450?

    Re: 70-200 nikon/ tamron or 300 2.8(new one)

    I have seen them going second-hand for about R4k for virtually brand new lenses (although that was 2 years ago). They were at that stage a glut on the market, because people were buying the kit with...

    Re: 70-200 nikon/ tamron or 300 2.8(new one)

    If that's what you want, rather look at a second-hand 24-120 f4. They are dirt cheap because it is the kit lens for some of the full-frame cameras.

    The gap between 120 and 200 can easily be...

    What Elsa said, except that the 300 f2.8 is one of the very best primes, and will outperform the 200-500 by a very long way in bad light and in terms of isolating your subject.

    300 f4 is a nice...

    Re: FX vs DX .... battle of the BOKEH

    That is quite a difference!

    Did you possibly extend the test to see what f-stop you need to close the 300 to to get around the same background detail?
