Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR II &hellip by Nikon

I have had this lens now for a couple of years and it has had some hard use. Overall it is a fine bit of kit although there is significand vignetting at 200mm. Recently I found the filter and hood mounting ring was loose and thought that a recent small knock might be responsible. I discovered that the front ring is held on by six small screws which are hidden under a thin black fabric self adhesive ring.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not for me, 30 Jan 2012
We have a long bungalow with a Pc at one end and a laptop at the other. I hoped to boost the signal. All was rigged according to instructions.

After 2 hours of fiddling the pc was improved by having the home hub nearby and the extender at midway gave a medium signal to the laptop but slower internet. Later on the link to the laptop packed up. Reverted to previous option with the hub at midpoint in the loft and the signal is adequate and the internet acceptably fast on both computers. Waste of an afternoon.

Michael Brown has produced an excellent guide which is of particular value to anyone exploring the fascinating mining settlement at Dylife for the first time. It is not only an invaluable guide to carry in the field but also contains a wealth of information on the geology, engineering aspects, economy and social background. It is just a pity that so much of the Dylife remains were wrecked by the public authorities before the modern industrial archaeology enlightenment of which this book is part. I would also like to use this review to complement all the enthusiasts and volunteers who have researched and saved so much at the site. A well written book with fine maps, illustrations and… Read more
