I am selling this because I just don't use it anymore. It is a great lens for macro, portraits. Lens is in great condition, minimal signs of wear. I have always had lens caps on when not on camera.
I am asking $375 plus shipping to continental USA. Photos on request.

Designed for use with full frame digital SLR cameras. May also be used with smaller APS-c size sensors with a corresponding effective increase in focal length to about 150mm with most cameras
Focuses down to 1:1 magnification ratio at its closest working distance of 12.3 inches
A hood adapter, (not detachable) lens hood, front & rear lens caps are included with the lens

I have 2 Nikon, full frame and cropped, with many lenses. I also have 2 Sony's a full frame and cropped. I just got back from Cuba, where I only took my Sony's. I am so happy with the images, 95% were handheld and very sharp. I walked around for hours with the 2 cameras hanging off my shoulders without any discomfort.

I am getting ready to sell off my Nikon lenses. I have to many and just don't use them much.
I am selling a Nikon 85 F1.8 and a Sigma EX 105 f2.8. Message me if interested in either of these lenses.

Loved watching this video. If you love birding in Central park, come on out to Long Island where the chickadees, titmouse & downly woodpecker will eat out of your hand!!!

I took this image of my hand feeding the birds, with my little Sony A6500 with a Sony 16-70 f4 lens.

Just an fyi...if they tell you, that you must check your camera bag at the gate...tell them you have lithium batteries that can't go under the plane!
I also travel a lot by plane. I put as much as I can carry in my backpack. Then I use a small rolling carry on, with my lenses wrapped in the lens wraps. I have even used bubble wrap. I have never had a problem. I always take the lenses off the 2 bodies, just in case of severe movement in the plane.

I have a Rokinon 14 mm lens for my full frame Nikon. It was suggested to me by Gabe Bidderman, works at B&H and is one of the guys that runs the National Parks at night workshops.

They are not expensive, great lenses. I also have a Rokinon fisheye for my Sony

I do quite a bit of birding on Long Island. There are many here that do not want to post where the birds are...snowy owl, peregrine falcon, owls. People are NOT respectful of the wildlife and cause such stress on the birds & other wildlife. They want to get the birds in flight and will cause the bird to fly just to get away from some aggressive photographer.

A few years back, there was a family of foxes. People were feeding them to bring them to a better location to photograph. It go so bad that as soon as a car pulled into the adjoining parking lot, the foxes would go right up to the cars! One of the young kits ended up getting killed.
There were people feeding the deer, bread & cereal. Their bodies cannot handle that and it killed a half dozen deer.

So please be respectful of the wildlife. Check out the guidelines by Audubon.org guide to ethical bird photography.

I am selling it because of the weight. I am sure it will be much more than the Tamron lens.

It can definitely be used on a dx camera. I have used it on both. It is a very heavy lens, almost 3 lbs. I don't know how much the Tamron lens weighs but since this is a 2.8 lens it is very good glass and I am sure it is heavier.

I am the original owner. I brought it to Nikon for repair of a button that wasn't working and for a cleaning last year. It is getting to heavy for me to carry, my reason for selling this great lens. It is in perfect, mint condition, lenses have always been covered or on the camera. Comes with both caps, hood & original hard case.

**This 80-200mm f/2.8 is good for portraits this lens can defocus backgrounds better with its fast f/2.8 aperture. Its conventional diaphragm creates fantastic sunstars on brilliant points of light (newer f/2.8 tele zooms have rounded diaphragms that don't make sunstars). It's perfect for use on FX digital for sports, action and low-light photography it could be the only tele zoom you'll ever need.

The AF Zoom-Nikkor is a high-performance telephoto lens with a focal length range of 80-200mm and 2.5x zoom that helps to create bright, sharp images and blurred backgrounds thanks to its widest aperture of f/2.8 and Extra-Low Dispersion glass delivering maximum light throughout the entire zoom range to the camera's sensor - even in low-light situations. ***

Photos on request.

I am asking $450 plus $14 shipping to cont USA.

Cathedral of St John the Divine near Columbia University on Amsterdam Ave

*There is some dispute about whether this cathedral or Liverpool Cathedral is the world's largest Anglican cathedral and church. It is also the fifth largest Christian church in the world.The exterior covers 121,000 sq ft, spanning a length of 601 ft and a width of 232 ft. The interior height of the nave is 124 feet.*

Tripods are permitted as long as there is rubber on the bottom. They have vertical tours, that will take you up to the different levels and then onto the roof. It is an amazing place to see and photograph!

I took these images of the vertical tour with a fisheye lens in 2010

If the lights hadn't been left on in the store after closing, the robbers would have required significantly more than 60 seconds to gather up all that loot. Or they would have had to leave with a lot less merchandise in time to avoid capture. If the lights had been left on intentionally for sake of surveillance video, the video camera's location wasn't exactly ideal. No way able to capture faces. As we can see, the recorded footage can only reveal how it was done, not who did it. It appears at least one of the robbers was well acquainted with the store's merchandise layout. In other words, he/she has visited the store before. But no way to identify the robber from the video footage.

I suspect the folks in Manchester, NH have very little experience with burglaries and what can be done to prevent them. The robbers had it far too easy here!

I heard from Gary Farber, one of the owners that it is happening all over the country with the smaller stores. The folks at Hunts, installed the video cameras in the Police station in Manchester. Hunts is in NH, MA and RI.

Seems Oben is B&H brand. I have a travel Oben and it has broken several times. They did fix it for me, but it broke again. The plastic inside breaks and the leg just comes all the way out. I would not get another Oben.

I want to go, just for the hummers. Beautiful shots. I wish they had downloads available. Any particular place for hummers?


A friend of mine is a local photographer, guide and naturalist.
He lives in Sarapiquí.

Thanks so much. I completely agree. I have so many sharp images of the hummingbirds it is difficult to delete them. Love your image of the Quetzel. I was able to photograph the male and the female but he was behind one of the branches.
