Re: What have you just bought?

My second lens for my Nikon D5600, a Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 35mm f/1.8 lens, I only paid £40 as I used my £100 christmas bonus from work.

Re: What have you just bought?

Well I wanted to buy the Nikon 70-300mm lens, but they didn't have it in stock.

So I bought the Tamron 18-400mmf/3.5-6.3 Di II VC HLD, for £650.

Because it is fitted to a DX body it has an ultra-telephoto range equivalent to 620mm in the 35mm format.


Now waiting for a clear night 18th to 20th to catch the full moon.

I have the tripod, and will remebr to turn off VC/VR.

Looking forward to seeing what it can do, should be good for wildlife too. When you settle for what type of photography you enjoy the most. Then you'll find your favourite lens. I would keep the 50mm Prime over all others.

That’s not a bad idea - I take a Bose mini into the bathroom when having a bath, to listen to podcasts; that would make that unnecessary.
