I was window shopping (or should I say ‘screen shopping’) online last night for photo gear. Since receiving a Nikon D300 from my fiancee, I’ve been searching for accessories to help fuel my growing love for photography.
This is what I have been eyeing:
Nikon AF-S 300mm f/2.8 VR II ED Telephoto Lens
Professional, fast-aperture super telephoto lens, now enhanced with Nikon VR II image stabilization and featuring Nano Crystal Coat, is an ideal choice for sports photography, live performance shooting, wildlife and more.
Fast-aperture f/2.8 NIKKOR Super Telephoto
Wide aperture, professional telephoto performance, optimized for edge-to-edge sharpness for both FX and DX-format Nikon D-SLRs—perfect for action and sports photojournalism, wildlife photography and more.
Nikon VR II (Vibration Reduction) Image Stabilization
Vibration Reduction is engineered specifically for each VR NIKKOR lens. VR II enables handheld shooting at up to 4 shutter speeds slower than would otherwise be possible, assuring dramatically sharper images.
Exclusive Nano Crystal Coat
Further reduces ghosting and internal flare for even greater image clarity.
Three Extra-low Dispersion (ED) Elements
Offers superior sharpness and color correction by effectively minimizing chromatic aberration, even at wide apertures.
Nikon Silent Wave Motor (SWM)
Delivers fast, accurate and quiet autofocusing.
Three Focus Modes
A/M mode joins the familiar M/A and M modes, enhancing AF control versatility with fast, secure switching between auto and manual focus to accommodate personal shooting techniques.
Nikon Super Integrated Coating (SIC)
Enhances light transmission efficiency and offers superior color consistency and reduced flare.
AF Memory Recall
Allows instant return to a predetermined point of focus.
Featuring enhanced dust and moisture-resistance, magnesium die-cast barrel construction and a protective meniscus front lens.
Close Focusing to 7.2 feet
Focus to 7.2 feet in manual focus or 7.5 feet in autofocus, enabling striking image perspectives.
Rounded 9-Blade Diaphragm
Renders more natural appearance of out-of-focus image areas.
Hmm…may I borrow $5,500?
