Wonder if a new version is about to come out. I’d love one but not if its about to be new-versioned.

trialcritic says:

I have this lens and have only one gripe. No filter threads. I love using gold-n-blue polarizers, nd filters and cannot do it.

I have a question.
I’m planning on going into amateur films.
I’ve just bought the Nikon d5300, and now I’m looking for a wide/ultrawide lens.
I’ve been looking through a million videos and reviews, but just can’t get the answer I’m looking for.

Can you guys suggest a wide lens
1. of around 500$ (used);
2. That’s compatible to my Nikon d5300;
3. Will autofocus

I’d appreciate any suggestions.

“Squat like a person from mainland China”
Kai was always condescending and a little bit lame, now he is also a racist.. cool..

Max W says:

The lens cost over $2,000…

Cam365 says:

I want this lens ! I already have a sigma 70-200mm f2.8. Going to get the Tamron 24-70 f2.8 as it challenges the Nikkor equiv really well. But I’ll happily shell out for this puppy.

Fausnaugh Productions says:

whats gonna be the the actual focal length if you use this with a dx format camera? cause ik its a 1.5 crop

jim hawk says:

awesome video!

First of all the Review itself was as enjoyable as the one kilo Nikkor lens. Really cool to be outside with rain meaning no heavy shadows to deal with. Nice even lighting. I presume this was done in Hong Kong but what do I know. The weight and size is one thing I noted about the lens. I found this review and note all this time later that it was done with the D700. I’m wondering if the D810 or the D750 will be the preferred body for the Nikon test. I am looking forward to the new Tamron 15-30 lens with tough external coating. Resists dirt and loses a silly mm of width. Same f-stop. The huge question will be which lens is sharper and which lens can actually be used for its intended very wide to wide angle of views. Flare and the rest should be compared. Way to go Digital Rev TV AlexF

Alfredo M says:
