Are you a DSLR shooter and do you own a super zoom lens? If you can answer yes to that double-question, then you’ve probably already heard about “lens creep”, or perhaps you’ve experienced it yourself, on your own lens(es), maybe even quite often. If you answered “no” to the double-question, but you’re considering buying a […]

The thing about opinions is that they change from time to time. Just one year ago, I was on about “lens quality” and “pixel sharpness” etc., I was shooting with expensive, good quality glass on my D7000. I even published a blog post comparing the expensive Nikon 24-120mm F4 VR lens with the cheaper superzoom […]

One of the reasons I picked the Sigma 70-200/2.8 HSM II over Tamron’s 70-200/2.8 was because of the faster – and quieter autofocus motor – in the Sigma, so I decided to throw together a quick video to demonstrate the differences in autofocus motor noise on the following lenses: Sigma 70-200/2.8 HSM II Nikkor 18-200mm […]

I recently replaced my Lowepro SlingShot 350 AW camera and laptop bag with the Lowepro CompuTrekker AW bag, which for me, is a far better choice. If my SlingShot 350 didn’t break, I probably wouldn’t have replaced it with the CompuTrekker. But it did and I’m glad to have an ordinary backpack available, since it […]

A few days ago I recieved a Tamron A17 70-300mm lens for my Nikon D5000. The full name is Tamron AF70-300mm F/4-5.6 Di LD Macro. I don’t know enough about DSLR shooting to determine whether or not the lens is any good, but for the price of less than $200, I’m quite satisfied with it. […]
