Re: I ordered a... nifty fifty!

I cancelled it as well!

I don't want to wait that long and I think I might get a littlw frustrated with a prime and will quickly want to upgrade/add another.

So now I am thinking I will save a bit more and get the Tamron 17-50 f2.8 or Sigma 18-50 f2.8

Or I might sell my keyboard and other music equipment I no longer use and get a 20-70 or 17-55 nikkor f2.8 I might sell my 55-200 too

It's never easy is it!

Re: I ordered a... nifty fifty!

What are you like??

I must admit I love my primes (probably more so than my zoom lenses now). They are annoying at first, you actually have to think about positioning yourself rather than just zooming in/out, however IMO the image quality more than makes up for it

I took one of my primes out this morning, will host a few on here when I have sorted them out

Re: I ordered a... nifty fifty!

Look forward to the pics!

Another thing that made me cancel is I read Nikon are bringing out a new 1.4 50mm and others were being advised to hold on until then.

I wouldn't mind buying a second hand one - just can't find them anywhere!

Re: I ordered a... nifty fifty!

A quick one



Yes, second hand 1.4's are like gold dust (and they get snapped up pretty sharpish if they do come along lol). I must admit I don't use mine often, but i'm glad I have it

Re: I ordered a... nifty fifty!

That's very nice GH! How close did you have to get for that!?

Jols - they have one in Cardifft too, but it's more expensive. One good thing about jessops online is you get 6% back via quidco _and_ 15 off with the summer15 voucher.

I'm going to see how much of my studio I can sell and then see which lens I can afford

Re: I ordered a... nifty fifty!

GH - you're on FX too aren't you? So you I wouldn't have had to get that close... but even then I wouldn't have... I hate bees n wasps

KK - I know I know I am forever buying things and taking them back cos I change my mind lol. It's still not a definite no tho. If I can't raise the cash for a 20-70 (!! ) I am seriously going to consider the 50mm and 17/18-50mm tamron/sigma. May even just go with the 1.8 50mm to get me buy until then as they are fairly inexpensive
