3 New Nikkor Lenses from Nikon
Should you consider them?

Here's my take on yesterday's announcement of three new lenses:
24mm f/1.8G
200-500mm f/5.6 E ED VR
24-70mm f/2.8E ED VR

See which ones I recommend, and which one I'd think twice about.
Three new Nikkor lenses were announced on August 4, 2015 (Image courtesy of Nikon USA). Yesterday brought the announcement of three new Nikkor lenses from Nikon. Two of these lenses are completely new, and the third is an update to a member of Nikon's “holy trinity” series.

Buying "used" doesn't have to mean "used."

When it comes to camera gear, there are some savings to be found if you know what you're looking for.
Refurbished cameras are inspected by the manufacturer and usually carry a 90-day warranty. The savings can be significant over an unopened item. Digital photography is an expensive hobby, and we all want to find a good deal when buying gear. Now that the Internet makes comparison shopping easy, ...

Educating photographers, one pixel at a time
Introduction
Jason P. Odell is a professional photographer, author, and educator in Colorado, USA.

Jason became interested in photography when he received his first camera, a Kodak Ektralite 10, in elementary school. He routinely experimented in his mother's home darkroom and was occasionally allowed to borrow her Nikkormat EL SLR. Jason continued his passion for photography throughout high school, where he was a photographer and editor of the school yearbook.

Jason studied biology at UCLA and later earned his doctorate from the University of California, Riverside. While studying, his field biology work took him to the island of Trinidad, West Indies, where he developed a passion for photographing birds and other wildlife. Jason's doctoral adviser was also an avid nature photographer, so trips to the field always involved packing cameras and lenses.Jason taught at the university level for eight years and has a passion for education.

Jason is the author of numerous eBooks on digital photography and post-processing, available at Luminescence of Nature Press.
