5.0 out of 5 stars If your looking - Buy It !!!, 2 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have used Nikon cameras and Nikon lens for over 35 years now. I still have all the cameras and lens I have ever bought. I had a little bonus at the end of the tax year, thank you HM inspector of taxes, so I took a chance and purchased the Nikon AE version of this lens. WOW, portrait photo's are superb from my D7000. Yes it can suffer a little flair when shooting towards bright light sources but the so do half of my Nikon lens. Being old school the manual focus is not a problem, my wife took about 10 mins to get the hang of it on her D3200 producing some very good photos. Pound for Pound one of the best lens I have ever bought.

Works perfectly with iPlayer, Netflix ...., but you can't cast any webpages using chrome on an android device - come on Google - Get your act together.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cheaply made in China, 15 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I purchased this to attach my prime Nikkor lenses to my Lumix GX1 to take advantage of the f1.4. When I received the item it feels cheap and in the end decided not to use it as I felt it might cause damage to my very expensive lenses.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for GX1, 2 lens and bits, 27 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Just the right size for my Lumix GX1 and 2 lens plus spare battery and memory cards. The moveable internal partitions are a little flimsy but do not move when the Velcro is fixed. It is very light in weight and has a padded detachable/adjustable shoulder strap. The only downside is it not rainproof.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good product, 30 Jun 2011

Excellent product. Easy to fix on wall with screws and plugs provided. When you offer the guitar to the bracket, the guitar moves the jaw down about 20mm and this rotates the locks into position. When you lift the guitar the locks release. The jaw also rotates to allow the guitar to swing into its natural balance point, so in the case of a Jackson RR3 it is not quite vertical. I liked this hanger so much I have ordered more for the rest of my guitar collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow - How did I manage before I purchased this ?, 5 Jun 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have recently upgraded to a Nikon D7000, and decided to upgrade my photo printer. After reading the review I decided to take the risk an buy the Canon Pixma Pro 9000 Mk II. I took about 30 mins to set up ( after I re-arranged my desk - this is a BIG printer ) and load the supplied software. I was ready to print my first photo, 4 mins later I could not believe how good the print was - I dropped my old photo printer in the bin. I used a generic A3 gloss photo paper purchased from one of the national stores. It made my old prints look as if I had bad eye sight. I have now re-printed all of the photos I have hanging around the house. I have calculated that using generic paper the A3 prints are costing me about £ 3.00 each if I replace the canon ink cartriges as a set. I will update this review when I have exact figures. It does sound expensive but the prints are cheaper and better than the printing house I use. I am waiting for a pack of A3+ paper to arrive to use the full size potential of this printer. If you are serious about printing your own large photo's then I would recommend this printer to all, but you will need very good quality image files to use the printers potential, the old saying ' garbage in - garbage out' still applies. Update - I am still using the same set of ink cartridges some 50 prints later, so far so good.
