    Boss wants a new setup for outdoor photography (Alaska)... What should I recommend?

    $2000 for body and glass will be extra... D750 or D610 is the logical choice? What glass should I be researching??? Thanks!

    Told Nikon to go ahead and fix the lens They replaced the mount, cam ring, roller/guide ring, lens barrel, zooming ring, rubber ring, and cleaned the lens. The new lens barrel resulted in a new serial #. Total cost - $100 to ship and $492 in charges :smile:

    Fine... let's say for a moment there is impact damage... What does that have to do with Nikon's inability to give me an estimate on fixing the zoom ring seizing up? And let's say all the problems with the lens has to do with one impact that resulted in the zoom ring seizing up... Nikon can't...

    That's insane. Of course it "could be"... but the evidence is INSIDE the camera... They are simply wanting $600 to fix the bent/dent before they even look under the hood to find the real reason for the problem I sent the lens in for in the first place... Yet I have to put up the $600 first...

    But here's the problem...

    But it's irrelevant since the bent/dent in the photos does not prohibit me from mounting the lens on a camera or taking photos... They want $600 BEFORE even finding out what's wrong with the zoom lens seizing up... which could add to the total bill. Could the minor dent/bent in the photo have...

    They won't even tell me the reason for the zoom ring not working until they get their $600 to fix the minor dent/bent... and even then, the $600 is only for the minor dent/bent... and the true problem of the zoom ring seizing up could add to the cost of the total bill... extortion is what it is...

    This is mind-blowingly insane. So here's the end result - I sent in the lens because of the seized up zoom ring. They unboxed it, noticed a minor dent/bent on the mount, voided the warranty, and estimates the repairs at $600. I called and spoke with more then 3 supervisors explaining I had no...

    Here are three photos Nikon sent to me... What I'm not understanding is how this "damage" could possibly result in the zoom ring seizing up... More then likely they just saw this, labeled it as impact damage, and didn't even bother finding out what's actually wrong with the lens/zoom ring...

    I was shooting an engagement party Saturday before last and about 2 hours in, the zoom ring/dial completely seized up. It would not budge. I sent it back to Nikon and provided proof of purchase since it was still under their 5 year warranty. I received notification today stating, "ZOOM IS...

    Do you render 1:1 previews before going into the Develop mode? I've been told that the short delay when clicking to the next image in Develop has to do with the rendering of RAW information... but I don't think that has anything to do with going in 1:1, unless you go in 1:1 from one image to...
