Visitors Looking In On Me

free counters


  • Mood: Frustrated
This is going out to those who use DSLR cameras with long lenses, particularly interchangeable lenses. I have a Nikon (Nikor) 70-300mm that I use almost exclusively (I take a lot of bird pics on nature walks, and don't change the lens to prevent dirt in the sensor). We've had this baby since my Mom got her Nikon D40 back in 2007 or so. It's seen much use. Lately the thing is rattling and won't focus. I think the auto-focus lens servos are giving up. Any thoughts? I've tried to be careful with it and it'd had minor "knocks". It pretty much gave up today, while trying to photograph the Atlantic Ocean from top of Mount Agamenticus (mountain in York ME). It can still be used on Manual focus. It's aggravating to feel and hear it rattle. :(

Which do you wish you had more of? (no "both" option). See Comment

I'm not on here like I used to be, so I don't often answer "thank yous" anymore. Please don't be disappointed by this. You can still stop on by and say Howdy. I'll take a spin around your gallery, which would be nice, yes? I like to see new and different things, when I take the time. Health issues don't allow me to sit long.

So, you're welcome in advance. :heart:
