    Camera Sky

    I am just about to buy myself a Nikkor 16 - 35mm VR lens for my D800 as I don't have an ultra wide angle lens for my full frame camera.

    I was just wondering if anybody has had any dealings with the company "Camera Sky". They are an Australian owned company and they seem to be offering the best price at the moment on this particular lens?
    CAMERA: Nikon D800, Nikon D7000
    LENSES: AF Nikkor 50mm f/1.8, Tamron SP AF 90mm F/2.8 Macro, Sigma 10 - 20mm F/4 - 5.6, Sigma 150 - 500mm F/5 - 6.3 APO DG OS, Nikkor 18 - 200mm F/3.5 - 5.6 VRII,
    Sigma 70 - 200mm f/2.8 APO EX DG OS, Tamron SP 24 - 70mm f/2.8 Di VC USD, Sigma 85mm F/1.4 EX DG, Nikkor AF-S 16-35mm F/4 ED VR, Nikkor AF-S 200-500 f/5..6E ED VR

    Do your due diligence Nell.

    Google 'Camera Sky Reviews'. They have a mixed bag of reviews, mostly not too flash.

    I personally wont buy anything 'Grey' that has a PCB and/or a motor in it. For the sake of the extra couple of hundred bucks I have the peace of mind that only a local manufacturers warranty gives.

    In any case I'd be having a look at the Samyang 14mm f2.8. I have one, and it works very well on the D800. Or if you are flash with cash the Tamron 15-30mm f2.8 VC seems to be getting rave reviews. I think Lance has posted his impressions of it on here.

    Thanks Kev. I would also have loved the Tamron 15 - 30mm but it would have meant purchasing a whole new filter system and as I am more into portraiture more than landscapes, I figured the Nikkor 16 - 35mm will do the job well enough for me.
    I have now purchased the lens through CameraPro in Brisbane. I have dealt with them before and had no problems. Nikon are offering cashbacks on certain lenses until 31st May if you purchase through one of their dealers/distributors.

    I've purchased from camera sky in the past. some m43 gear, a body, and some lenses, and all items arrived quickly and without issue. nothing broke in the time i owned it, i just sold most of it and bought some film gear instead
    my experience was all positive.

    Yes I did Lance. I ended up buying it from Camera Pro in QLD. The lens also came with a cash back of $150.00 from Nikon. I haven't used it much yet but I intend to give it a good workout when I go over to England and then on a Mediterranean cruise in a couple of weeks time.
