It’s ridiculous that Nikon is charging $1,300 for an f/4 lens. If it were an f/2.8, I’d pay more, but for an f/4, $1,300 is quite steep. Looking for a viable alternative, we enter the world of used F-Mount glass – there’s quite a lot of it out there for some great prices!
In this video, I talk about the Nikon 60mm f/2.8D for $160 and the aforementioned Tokina 16-28mm f/2.8 which I bought used for $280.
