Wanted: Nikon lens or Pentax (D)SLR camera body
« on: March 14, 2018, 07:29:52 pm »
Interested in Nikon lenses and Pentax DSLR bodies.

I'm finding my entry-level Canon DSLRs rather restrictive as they are optimised for one-hand point-and-shoot photography. I rather like the look of the Nikon D200, for the multiple control dials and the ready access to manual control. Happily they go for very little second hand as long as they are bought body only, which means I first need a Nikon lens. Zoom or fixed length would be fine, in the range of 28mm to 55mm or thereabouts.

Alternatively, I would consider a Pentax DSLR body. This would allow me to use a fast-ish Pentax lens we have at home. An old DSLR body would be OK.

What have you?

I now have a Pentax body due to arrive end of the week. It should provide a suitable new home for my Pentax K 50mm lens if the focus confirmation works.

Still interested in an autofocus Nikon lens of one of these types:
AF-S
AF-I
VR
