- First, a word about our new affiliate sponsor: BorrowLenses.com. The space shuttle Atlantis had its final launch last Friday and I was there to witness this historic event. Since I could not get tickets to the Kennedy space center (6 miles away from the launch pad), my only option was to watch the lift-off from the closest public park (12 miles away from the launch pad). I also realized that my D300s + 70-200mm combo will be useless in such a distance. At the same time, I was in touch with the guys from BorrowLenses.com and decided to try their service - I got the 200-400mm f/4 lens (old version). The idea is very simple: they ship you the lens, you use it and ship it back. I think the prices are reasonable and you should give them a try if you need an exotic lens for a special occasion or you would like to try some glass before buying it. For some close-up pro pictures of the launch click here. There are only two more shuttle launches left. I also had some fun in the local park and zoo.
- The new Sigma 8-16mm F4.5-5.6 DC HSM lens is now in stock.
- Another gizmo: Laser DSLR Reticle.
- Funny: homemade Nikon video camera.
Continue after the break:
- Nikon D700 is out of stock even on Nikon Direct (Japan).
- Nikon Hungary extended DSLRs warranty to 3 years (source).
- Nikon cashback in Switzerland (D5000, D90 and D300s).
- New cashback of $200 for the D700 will start tomorrow (17th May 2010) in Australia.
- Nikon D3s has an ongoing discount in Romania (aprox. 500 EUR).
