    Hi -

    Came across someone selling a Nikon D200 with "Sigma" lenses not Nikon lenses. Comes with:

    Sigma 28-70mm F2.8-4 DG Lens
    Sigma 70-300mm f/4.0-5.6 DG Macro Lens


    Does anyone know if this sounds OK? Most companies sell the D200 with the Nikon 70-300mm AF-S VR Zoom Nikkor Lens.

    Any input would be helpful.

    Thanks

    It's probably a bundle they have created. The D200 either comes in Body only or with a 18-200mm VR kit i believe. So don't look like anything is out of the ordinary. Sigma lenses work awesomely!

    This same seller also offers one page with 2 nikon lenses but they dont have the VR (vibration reduction). How important is that?

    I'm not a Nikon user, but purely on the "does it sound ok?" part, if you mean Ebay then I'd be fairly comfortable buying from the user. Excellent feedback of 99.9% and almost 10000ratings. Only 1 negative in the last month out of 500 transactions.
    As far as the user is concerned, if it's an item i was looking to buy I'd be quite comfortable with that.

    I have one Sigma lens for my Canon - a 17-35 f2.8-4 and it's great. Sigma lenses seem to get a good write up and I'm happy with mine.

    Hope that's of use to you!

    The problem is that camera dealers earn the lowest percentage gross profit on camera bodies. This dealer is including some cheap lenses in order to improve his average margin. Nothing wrong with that. Just understand that these are cheap lenses, not the sort one would who bought a D200 would normally choose.
