p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Best place to buy Nikon 105 1.4E?


So it looks like there isn't much of a market for used ones yet, I know there were 2 here but they sold. Is there any place that gives any kind of points? Adorama has no sales tax to Maryland. Might be where I get it.

You can get 5% off from Amazon by using a branded visa card. Also Discover has a deal for 5% cashback on Amazon purchases at the moment. That's $110 off regular retail, not bad!

i have to throw this out there. I had a few bad experiences with some of the bigger shops in NY (I won't name any names), so I spent a few months searching for a new place to buy my gear. I stumbled across Samy's Camera in California, and I couldn't be happier. They do the BEST job with shipping - items are always in a brand new shipping box, wth TONS of packing peanuts surrounding the manufacturers box. I've NEVER received an item that was a previous return, they ship SUPER fast, and to top it off, they have a GREAT return policy that I've used more than once. They also give 3% back in points, which adds up quickly if you have a terrible case of GAS like I do. No tax in MD either...

I don't see their name pop up around here too often, but I've been REALLY happy with them for the past few months, so I thought I'd give them a little plug. And no, I don't have anything to do with their company whatsoever, I'm just a happy customer.

They also have the 105E in stock at the moment (my personal favorite lens!)...

Try with greentoe. I usually buy through greentoe and most of the gear gets around 10% discount.

I was hoping I wasn't going to have to spend $2,200. I just bought the 200 F2 VR II a few months ago. However, the 200 F2 is still my favorite lens and I will be keeping it. I just don't want to have to carry that heavy lens on every photo shoot, still plan on shooting with the 200 F2 on about half of them.

My first choice is always B&H and has been for the past 30 years. They have the best prices for USA gear, lots of inventory, easy returns process that is 100% on line and takes minutes, and the lowest shipping prices from anyone. Most items ship with free 3-day shipping.

If B&H does not have something then I try Adorama and if they do not have it then I look for someone selling on Amazon as there is still some level of buyer protection going through them for a third party lens (unlike eBay).

I would seriously question the value of the 105mm f/1.4 over the 105mm f/2.0 DC lens. There is a bit of a knee jerk reaction to the new lens.

Seen this and thought the 105 1.4E destroyed the 105 dc. Sharper, better bokeh, less CA.

I do the reverse BC adorama doesn't force their black and hispanic employees to use a specific bathroom.

I've never understood why people develop loyalty to retail resellers. They're just middlemen profit skimmers. I buy direct from the people who actually make things when that's an option and the rest of the time I buy from whoever offers the lowest price and least customer friction (which is Amazon 99.99999% of the time).
