    Should i get the Nikon 18-70 or the Nikon 18-55vr2

    I need a cheap lens for every day use since my wife destroyed my 18-105. I have a gift card for a local camera shop here in toronto and it covers either lens and with money left over.

    Nikon 18-70

    So my wife kinda destroyed my 18-105. She broke the plastic mount and I replaced it but the lens won't TTL with my flash and sometimes it gives me an error saying that it's not connected. I found a nikon 18-70 for $100 and am wondering if it's a good replacement for the 18-105.

    Mounting plate replacement for my Nikon 18-105vr

    My first mistake was to let my wife use my D5100 to take pics of our kids at the Science Center here in Toronto. I have a small Nikon bag just big enough to hold my camera with the 18-105. So while she was taking the camera out of the bag (which is snug) she broke one of the tabs and the lens...

    New flash

    I just bought a Yongnuo 568ex off Kijjiji here in Toronto for $80. The only issue was that the battery cover was busted. So I ordered a new cover off ebay for $5 and it will be here in 2 weeks. For now a trusty rubber band is holding the battery cover shut. I have been playing around with it and...

    Lens Dilemma!

    So I got a gift of a $300 Henry's Camera Store Gift Card as a thank you for baptizing my friends little girl and now I'm having a slight problem choosing what to buy.

    I bought a nikon 70-300 but the focal length wasn't wide enough. I went to Henry's here in Toronto and tested the sigma 18-200 on my D5100 and I was impressed. I can get the 18-200 here for around 300 used but i was wondering if the 18-250 would be a better choice since it gives me a macro...
