Excerpt: I just purchased this lens (after reading all the hype) to use with my D610 and was very excited when I got it. Took it out on a Senior photo shoot. Got home and uploaded photos to my computer and noticed right away the majority of my photos were blurry and not in focus. Thankfully I also used my 85mm that day so I did have a few redeeming in focus photos and had another day where I did more shots with my Senior so I have photos I can give to my client but am very...
Summary: This coffee mug looks like a real camera lens, it has a lot a great detail to it but there's some negative things about this cup. One of them is how the interior stainless came off after the second time using it which is a shame because to be honest this is an expensive coffee mug for this crap to be falling off after the second use. The coffee mug also has this really nasty plastic smell to it that wont go away no matter how many times I have washed it.
Summary: I was not expecting the small size. Once I opened it I realized this is not a coffe mug in the way we use them here in the US, there is no opening at the top to sip out of. . You must unscrew the cap and use as a thermos. The 2nd time I opened it product, the gasket fell out. I understand the profuct was only $14.00 and wil make a nice conversation piece. I may use it to hide things but it isn't usefull as a mug.
Summary: This item's interior stainless steel liner came loose after only a couple of uses. There is a screw floating loose in the bottom of the plastic part, but I can't rescrew it in so the liner won't tighten back down. Will try to get a refund. Do not buy.
Excerpt: Beware of buying any items which state imported. It might be gray market. We had to send this item for repair. Nikon is NOT repairing it, because it is Gray Market. We did not know that it is Gray Market. Then I wanted to send it to a Nikon Authorized Repair Station. But bad news there as well: Only Nikon is authorized to repair your Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm f/2.8G ED. The lens worked fine for 3 years.
Excerpt: My old 24-85 f/2.8-4 was sharper. This lens wouldn't focus to infinity. I tried it on two different bodies and finally sent it back for an exchange. I hope this was a Nikon quality problem as other Nikkors I have work wonderfully. This lens came highly recommended.
Excerpt: Notorius Zoom Ring problem. Good lens but get ready to pay for zoom ring repair by Nikon even when under warranty. Nikon NY will tell you Impact Damage Not Covered by the Terms of Warranty. Regadless if you really bumbed the lens or not. Dismayed by Nikon repair service.
