I remember seeing these lenses at $400 (LN) about a year ago. At least this hike isn't Nikon's fault.
They need the aperture control right on the lens, that's why. The Canon lenses do not have this.Why would they when the have the equivalent (and much more recent AF version) in Canon mount ?
I don't know about that. I believe the FX sensor is a bigger factor. I think the Canon users who buy AIS lenses are a small market compared to the Nikon FX buyers. However they do exist, and if they happen to exist in your own backyard, then they add another layer of your own "competition" for these lenses.So you're saying Canon users are part of the reason used Nikkors are getting harder to find and more expensive to buy?
[Holds head to try to keep it from exploding].
Okay, I'm not a Canon user, so bear with me. I was also skeptical when the guy who bought my lenses told me about it, having never heard of such a thing.Even if they don't have an aperture ring what's the big deal ?
