I know. I was looking for a Canon fit lens but came across this and thought it was to good of a deal not to share with are Nikon friends.

Absolutely, I went for the Sony A200 (Minolta A Fit) in favour of the Nikon D40 as a budget DSLR, thats a crazy price for Nikon owners, great post and a steal for Nikon owners.....

Great post!
Going to get one if I can find the cash!

Worth it if you can, you just dont get lenses this cheap brand new....
#6
Its a cracking lens too, used it with my D80 for a long time. Worth every pence and a bit more in my opinion.

HOT!

I don't think this lens can be used with the D40/D40x. Am I right?

Correct. Well, unless you want to manually focus it :(

B*****ks. I paid nearly double this for my D50 a few weeks ago! Oh well... sods law I guess.
Excellent deal... and the lens is very good for the price I paid let alone this! Great find. :thumbsup:

Which is the reason I bought the A200 instead of the D40..and yet even though that has the AF motor within the camera itself I cannot find lenses this cheap!

there are plenty of second hand minolta lenses that will fit your a200 in this price range.

I know thanks for that advice though :), I am waiting until the new year though, will get to use my camera probably over the xmas holiday period, and with cash all but spent at the moment, I can see it being march before I free up any extra cash to buy any additional lenses! Wouldnt mind getting a telephoto, a decent wide angle for landscape shots, and a nice fixed 50mm lens. Until then will have to make do with the cheapish 18-70mm that comes with the camera, its functional for learning though.

#16

As delivery is £2.50 the Jessops deal is voted cold but I would vote hot for Bristol Cameras deal.
#20
would the lack of autofocus with D40 make this deal poor? i mean for under 40£ it is still a decent piece of kit. you still can use it with manual focus.
shall I go buy it?

too late. i have bought the lens from bristolcameras. 31.50£ incl delivery.
#21
Seems like a good price for an OK lens, however it isn't a true MACRO lens. It will focus close and will make the object bigger but if you want a true macro then you'll be disappointed. See http://www.sigmauser.eu/content/view/84/25/ Would make an excellent backup lens IMHO. ;-)

It wouldn't make it a poor deal but you have to decide if you're going to use manual focus for all your photos. I would only use it once in a while for specific effects so for me it would be useless as I would just use an auto lens in manual mode.

It has MACRO in the title and I have researched and used macro lenses for a while so thought i'd put my 2p worth in.
#25
it doesnt look like macro.
anyway i hope i wont be dissapointed with it. for my first DSLR the D40 is rather dissapointing. with only 3 autofocus sensors it is hard to take a snap in conditions where the sky makes 2/3 of the composition. also the lack of antishake means only 5% of night photos can be kept (im not found of tripods). and now the built in autofocus...
#26
I've got a D50 so I take it the auto focus will work on this?? Sorry I sound thick, I use the D50 as a point a click camera with good results, picture quality is top notch
#27
I've got a Nikon D50. Could I use this lens & just manually focus? Any other downsides?

Yeah that's the point. If people were looking for a specific macro lens and saw this deal they might have bought it and regretted it. Just trying t save someone some hassle.

You'll struggle to get decent night shots without a tripod, even with an expensive VR (antishake) lens. The only way is to put the ISO up higher but then you still need a steady hand! I bought the D50 as my entry level camera and would take all Nikon (and Nikon fit) lenses...it lasted ages before I dropped it...I LOVED that camera! :cry:

why does it fit D50 not D40???

I voted hot on this one but have now ordered from Bristol Cameras for only £31.50 delivered .... this has to be the hotdeal and not Jessops... :thumbsup:

Aye, but the bristol one doesn't have auto focus, or am I being even more thick??

Both lenses are identical just different shops.

The D40 camera is missing the auto focus element that other cameras (D50/D80 etc) have built in. Therefore if the lens doesn't have it and the camera doesn't have it then you can't have autoocus. ;-)

[edit] The D50 has autofocus built in and therefore it can use this lens with autofocus.

Yes indeed. :thumbsup:

There is a good review of this lens at http://photo.net/equipment/tamron/55_200_Di/

As stated above, they say it isn't a proper macro lens but has pretty decent close focal properties.
