Been a bit busy, and it was winter. Not much to shoot. Birds are returning and my buddy did buy that Sigma 150-600 mm C. Works great. So he's bugging me to get out. Pics to come.
Anyhow.... I FINALLY found a Nikon macro lens for a price I could live with. Long story but, ended up...
Thanks for the replies. Appreciate it. Understand some of you would pass. But, I looked up the Sigma authorized repair center. It's in NY. Gave the number to my friend. He spoke to a very helpful repair person. The repair wouldn't be cheap. The front lens group is 250.00. About 100.00 for labor...
I'm aware of your opinion on pawnshops. Just trying to help a friend out. Not sure how he could do better.
He has a Canon T6i. That's the cheapest I've seen used but If you have to pay that, you might as well buy new and get the warranty. The used market is bonkers.
A friend of mine has been looking for a long lens. Like others, he's on a tight budget. Told him to watch pawnshops. Called me today with this find. I asked a lot of questions and he sent pics. Physically it looks good on the outside. Most of what you see is fingerprints and sticker residue. No...
Not bad. Congrats.
Same situation several years ago. Popped up out of the water while shooting something else. What the heck is that? Two quick shots. Settings wrong. Gone. No where as clear as yours but, enough to identify it. Looking for redemption.
Great set. Yeah, those kingfishers never sit still for long or let you get close.
I couldn't find my BCN heron buddy this summer. He/she would let me get close and get some great shots. Know it's the same one because, it had a missing toe on one foot.
