I bought a new camera!
I really didn’t want to, but I thought I would treat myself.
While editing some photos from a recent wedding, I noticed that some of the pictures that I took, the right half of the picture was out of focus while the left side was sharp.
After taking my camera into Henry’s to see my friend Mark, we found that it was my 28-70mm f2.8 lens. We put it into repair.
Then I started looking at a full size Nikon camera. After looking for a while, I found the Nikon D750. Only that there was a few other reason why I wanted it, the best reason was it was an affordable full sized FX sensor camera. I won’t into the details of the tech specs, but needless to say a 24 megapixel sensor, 6.5 frames per second and HD video to boot.
The LCD panel is positionable, great for those concert shots, however, there is no plastic screen guard on this one.
It has built in wifi and I’m able to sync with my smartphone and upload to my social media sites right away.
However, when I put my 70-200mm f2.8 Sigma lens on, it was only being recognized as a DX lens and not a FX lens. So in it goes for repair as well. We hoped that they could re-chip the lens and everything will be well.
A couple of weeks have gone by and someone called me and said that the 28-70mm lens couldn’t be repaired, because they don’t make the parts any more, however, the 70-200mm lens can be repaired, a new chip and board are required and the estimated cost is $235. However, I’m stuck without a short range lens.
I finally chose the 24-70mm f2.8 lens from Sigma.
