i think 6 pages of suggestions might be a bit much. especially since many have the same ideas.
i live close to nyc & go often. i usually take my 28-300 lens. actually it was the only lens i took to cuba. gives me a great range. there is so much to see and photograph in nyc. carrying big cameras is pretty common, so it isn't like you will stand out.
it is a great place to explore, there is so much to see and shoot.
enjoy your trip!!
Oh Well, I thought that, but wanted to make sure. cant afford both now. Thanks Much for the reply.
if you can't afford both, go for the full frame glass in the future. it works great with both cropped & full frame sensors. then when you can afford the full frame camera, you already have the lenses.
Don't mean to highjack this thread but my question DOES have to do with ultra wide angle lenses so might be helpful as well. I was just looking at a TOKINA 11-16MM/2.8 FOR CANON APS-C to rent on Adorama but I shoot Nikon. It came up as an option when I searched for Nikon compatible wide angle lenses. Does anyone know if this lens will work on a Nikon D7100? Thanks!
yes it will work well with a nikon d7100. camera is cropped sensor, lens is for a cropped sensor.
Does anyone have hands on experience with Tamron 10 - 24mm and/or Sigma 10 - 20mm Ultra Wide angle lens? Any comparison tests?
i have the sigma 10-20 for nikon. loved it, but i now have 2 full frame lenses and the 10-20 is for a cropped sensor. i am trying to sell it. i can use it, with an adjustment in the full frame cameras, but won't get the widest angle.
interested in buying it? email me. i did list it on the for sale board here.
Lens is in very good condition, no signs of wear, I am asking $300 plus $12.65 priority shipping cost & 3% paypal fees. Will consider offers.
This Sigma lens provides an ultra-wide angle zoom lens from 10-20mm. It can be useful for images of landscapes, large buildings, group photographs or even more. The perspective that changes with the angle-of-view gives picture an extraordinary feeling.the rear lens group to minimize spherical aberration. Minimization of the distortion is a most important issue for zoom lens, but Sigma has succeeded, to provide image quality with minimal distortion by employing aspherical lenses.

I don't get your point. You want "credits" for donating your time? It would be nice if I got credit, each time, for donating my time. I don't expect it. When I volunteer I know I will work hard and long hours, but that is what I am donating to the cause. I don't expect any credits, perhaps a thank you is all I would need. I walk away with knowing I have helped another with my talents. Perhaps you might be over evaluating your importance a bit.
i think you continue to miss the point...i was ASKED to donate my time & expertise, i did not volunteer for this.
i don't think i am **over evaluating my importance a bit.**
a bit hostile on your part.

i don't think you get it at all, it wasn't about me selling my photos..
i have volunteered many times in the past, with several photographers photographing the event. it was never about selling my photos, it was more about a slap in my face that they thanked him publically, posting a link to his site publically and publically displaying his photos on tv. had i know from the beginning that another photographer would be photographing the event, i would have felt differently.
I still don't get what you are expecting from "volunteering" and being the "designated photographer". Why does it matter whether anyone else is taking pictures? Why does it matter if they are selling their pictures. Is that what you were doing?
i was told they would put a link to my site. i offered to donate a portion of sales to the charity. my point was they thanked him on facebook, and posted a link to his site on facebook, and submitted his photos that were shown on tv with the 2 celebrities present.
i wanted/expected some exposure for volunteering 8 hours of shooting and 5 hours of processing over 400 photos. i did the work and he got the thanks.
do you get it now?
This is advice for how to "volunteer" for a charity?
I really wonder if most of the responders here actually read the OP. Most of the responses, especially the really long winded tirades, completely miss the point.
i did think some of the responders missed the point, and offered poor suggestions. i was happy to volunteer my time. i will continue to volunteer for different charities..certainly not that one. i was wanting to hear, if others thought i handled it well.
i am happy with the way i handled it, i stood up for myself. explaining i was the designated photographer, he was not...he also was in the wrong. he knew another photographer would be there, so why couldn't he just be a guest? the whole thing was not handled well by these non professionals. and to blame me for being difficult and negative just made the situation worse.
i have 2 full frame nikon cameras. my walk around lens is the nikon 28-300, covers a huge range. i also have the nikon 16mm f2.8 fisheye. i have used it often for landscapes, sometimes i use the lens correction in photoshop to straighten things out...
love both lenses!
The loss of using my 18-200 would be significant. It is not my best lens, but it is the one I use most for my walk-around lens. Maybe I just need to decide whether to get a 7100(Refurbished for $599) or 7200 (New for $1099)?
when i switched to 2 full frame cameras, a d700 and a d750, i sold the 18-200 and got the 28-300 for full frame. love that lens. it was the only lens i took to cuba, a great walk around lens.
i love the d750, while i still like the d700 and i still use it, the newer d750 is just great. i am so happy i got it.
