Does anyone know where I could find a good zoom lens for a Nikon D5000 camera. I don’t have a whole lot of money but I really need a zoom lens. My camera only goes to 55mm. Not real great if you are shooting from more then 10 – 15 feet away, unless it is a landscape shot. Thanks for any input. ~PeanutMarch 29, 2017 at 7:26 pm #22539
Agreed! I was fortunate because my dad had an old 75-300mm which complemented the 18-55 until I was able to save up enough to buy my own zoom.
Is anyone on the forums here selling a zoom?
I use Canon so I couldn’t sell you any of my lenses to upgrade. Have you looked around for good deals on Amazon? @buddingphotographer, do you know of any current deals on zooms?
I don’t know if I trust eBay or Craigslist all that much when it comes to equipment, but I’m sure you could find a good deal through either of those two sources!March 29, 2017 at 7:39 pm #22543Dan CopeParticipantMarch 29, 2017 at 8:23 pm #22544Dan CopeParticipant
Sorry I did something wrong when I inserted the link for the 55-200. Try this instead.March 31, 2017 at 1:31 pm #22603Ezra MorleyModerator
A good place to find deals on Nikon gear is at: http://www.the-digital-picture.com/News/Default.aspx?Cat=Nikon-DealsMarch 31, 2017 at 1:40 pm #22604Ezra MorleyModerator
The cheaper 70-300mm Nikon can be had for $119 right now on ebay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/122250832563
I have never used it, so I can’t tell you how good it is. Just from the price, you’ll know it’s a cheaper entry-level lens. 🙂May 11, 2017 at 1:56 pm #23264June 21, 2018 at 10:49 pm #31519PeanutParticipant
Thanks! I haven’t been on the forum for awhile. Life got busy! I got a 70 – 300mm lens for Christmas last year. Thank you mom and dad!
