    I'd stay away from the old 24-120VR as it's a terrible lens. Have a look around for reviews and you'll see it's rated very poorly. The new 24-120 f4VR is a much better lens but not exactly cheap.

    2 years doesn't sound normal, pretty short actually. Mine's just over 5 years old and I use it a lot. I'd just get a SB700/900 rather than repairing it as I need the 360 swivel. I actually broke...

    I think it focuses too slow, it's the slowest of all my lenses and I don't have any fast pro lenses to compare it to either.

    Thanks for all the help. If it's still having the same problem after the next charge I'll be getting a couple new ones. Looks like grey market it is, almost half the price of retail.

    Do you all use the EN-EL3e battery? I'll try the charging method you suggested K1W1, but if it doesn't work I'll have to buy some new batteries. It's a choice between the EN-EL3e battery or EN-EL4a...

    Poor battery life with EN-EL3e and Nikon D700

    Since I got my D700 in August 2009 I noticed I wasn't getting as many shots per charge as when I was using the EN-EL3e in my previous D70s. I figured that the D700 was more power hungry due to the...

    It's a fantastic lens. My previous macro lens was the nikon AF-D 60mm f/2.8 and the autofocus was very slow on that and hunted a fair bit. The 105VR is far better. In very close focus distances it...

    Thought you'd be a bit annoyed that they didn't put VR in the 85mm. I'm very happy about the 24-120 f/4 VR. I don't really get the 55-300 DX, is it a replacement for the 55-200VR. If it's the same...

    Having used a 50mm on both a DX and FX body I feel it's much more versatile as a true 50mm. If I were in your position I'd choose the 35mm f/1.8 as it'll still be good for those close in portraits...
