    Man that P7000 continues to plummet in price.

    I don’t agree, since these are good deals. FYI, just two months ago I bought my brand-new, factory sealed D7000 at a $1.149 price tag at Adorama, so $999.99 for the same camera, being factory-warranted, is a great deal to my knownledge. You can put the saved $150-200 on a new/better glass. 😉


    • Not very journalistic though (but maybe that’s not what this site is about…), and how does the companies that actually pay for ads feel about others getting prime space for their product catalog for free..? I’m sure it’s harder for NR to ask for a paid renewal of the ads next time 😉 just a thought.
      Regards 🙂

        I believe that the goal of NR also is inform the readers, like me, where to find something with an interesting price, because I bought my camera in this shop yesterday, because to have been posted at this location …. annoying as everything in this Country necessarily have to be paid and politically correct! (sorry my English not “correct” :))

    You guys should definitely check out that Sigma 85mm f/1.4. It is an absolutely amazing lens tthat continues to impress me every time I use it.

    Sigma has really stepped up their game in the last three years or so. 17-50mm f/2.8 OS, 50mm f/1.4, 85mm f/1.4, 120-300mm f/2.8 OS, 10-20mm f/3.5…. can’t wait to see what’s next! (hopefully 50-150mm replacement!)

      Analyst- I never have good experiences when buying any lens other than nikon, if i want to buy the 85 1.4 im gonna do it right once and only once ill save every penny i have if i have to. Have you ever shot with the nikon one too or only the sigma?

        My lens bag consists of a mix of Nikon and Sigma lenses. While Nikon is more consistent than Sigma, they have both made ‘bad’ and ‘good’ lenses over the years. Sigma’s lenses are getting a lot better. Reading the reviews is the important thing, because everyone’s needs are different.

        I tested the Nikon 85mm f/1.4G AFS (the new one), the Nikon 85mm f/1.4 AFD (the old one), the Sigma 85mm f/1.4, and the Canon 85mm f/1.2 (on my friends 5D mark II for comparison). Nikon bodies were D7000 and D700.

        The most extensive comparison I did was between the new Nikon and the new Sigma. I sent the Nikon back — like other reviewers around the web, I didn’t like the slower autofocus performance and the 2x higher price for what was, as near as I can tell, almost the exact same optical performance. You can buy a lot of other things with that extra ~$900 or so that you’ll save with the Sigma.

        The old Nikon AF-D and the Canon f/1.2 I played around with, but didn’t really do much detailed testing. The AF-D lens seemed a little worse than the other three, and the Canon was about the same as the modern Nikon / Sigma (but you get a half stop more light OMG)…

        I also own the Sigma 17-50 f/2.8 OS, which I compared against the Nikon 17-55 f/2.8. They are both great lenses, but you trade a lot for the enhanced build quality (and extra 5mm range) of the Nikon. First off, there is the price difference of ~$600, but you also lose stabilization, and you get worse ergonomics (seriously Nikon, why is the zoom ring so close to the body!!!). The image quality and bokeh are about the same. So again, I returned the Nikon and kept the Sigma.

        However, I would avoid any non-EX Sigma lens – they are pretty much garbage in terms of build quality and the Nikon version is going to perform better and hold more value. Sigma’s 50mm f/1.4 is a great lens, but so is the Nikon version and they are about the same price. Nikon’s cheap little 35mm f/1.8G is an easy win over the Sigma 30mm f/1.4, which has terrible sharpness wide open, and never really gets much better. Sigma’s wide angle offerings are cheaper, but not much so, and the performance is about the same. Plus there are the excellent offerings from Tokina in that space.

        tl;dr: Compare all of your options in a purchase decision, you might be surprised at what you find.
