    7dayshop.com have a wide selection of Nikon AF Nikkor lenses at
    outstanding prices:

    http://www.7dayshop.com/catalog/clearance.php

    Scroll to half way down the page.

    There is also a special £99 offer on the Kenko Pro 300 2X
    teleconverter which (unlike Nikon's TC-20) offers full AF with all AF
    Nikkors, not just the AF-S Nikkors.

    occasionally dissatisfied customer. ;-)

  2. Interesting.
    It's quite tempting to buy a 70-300mm f4-5.6 for 68 quid and immediately
    list it on eBay, where a secondhand one sold for 87 a week ago.
    I'm cynical enough to give it a try, but not sure I can really be
    bothered...

    Nearly bought one of those for my F75 at Jessops in Canterbury last
    September - s/h like new at £60.

    Notice that if you read the text for this lens - which is an AF-G -
    and the 28-100 which is also an AF-G they list different cameras for
    compatibility. Noticably the latter lists the D1 but not the F75 (for
    which it is the lens supplied as standard) and the former lists
    neither th F75 nor any digitals, where in fact it will work with any
    digital. I speak from experience having used my 28-100 on my D70s
    and - I think - find it produces better results that the 18-70
    supplied!

  4. Just how bad/good are 7dayshop? - they seem to be one of those companies
    that gets very 'mixed' reviews, suggesting that when something goes wrong
    it REALLY goes wrong. Are most transactions relatively trouble-free..?

    I've used them 3 or 4 times,and apart from the fact that IME they should be
    called 14day shop, was happy.

  7. Used them a few years ago. they proved themselves to be either incompetent
    or rip-off merchants so I stopped using them.

    Heard they'd got a lot better so used them late last autumn. first time they
    were fine. 2nd time it was "same old, same old". Needless to say I won't be
    using them again

    In message <drvk7r$nkt$>
    So long as you're prepared to wait up to a month for things they told
    you were in stock, and, if it's a big order, check every wee thing (I
    always seemed to have one or two batteries or one or two films
    missing) and chase it up, you'll get your stuff in the end.

    I've also never bought anything big enough to go wrong, so can't say
    how good they are in that scenario: I've found amazon vg in that
    respect.

    In fairness, I also have to say that some fellow members of my camera
    club seem to use 7dayshop happily.

  9. Being retired i have to be careful on what i spend.
    Am a Nikon user for nearly 30 years after beginning
    with a Zenith 3M then Pentax S1A 45 years ago.
    Never a Canon man, but now perhaps i perhaps
    should change.
    Yet even the latest Canon would cost almost as much
    as the new nikon D200.
    A club photographer needs to produce at least A4 prints
    at a high resolution.
    No, will have to stick with Nikon, even if i can only afford
    to buy a fix lens like the Coolpix 880.
    I do need some help and advice, but not to give up my film
    nikon cameras! Photopop.
