Slide copying by K. Jayaram, a nature photographer from India: I have used slide films for over four decades. I have been wanting to copy some of the important slides and tried copying and scanning with no satisfying results.

At least two high-end Nikon cameras and at least two lenses expected by the end of 2018

For 2018 Nikon is rumored to announce at least two high-end/professional grade cameras and at least two lenses. I assume that at least one of those cameras will be mirrorless . Nikon already has three new cameras that have been registered for a while with various government agencies but are not yet officially announced. A  replacement for the Nikon Coolpix P900 camera  is also long overdue.

A reader in Switzerland already received his new Nikkor AF-S 180-400mm f/4 ED TC VR lens ( $12,396.95 ) and shared some sample/test photos: Finally, my long awaited Nikkor 180-400 F4 TC arrived and I can tell you – it’s huge, it’s heavy, it’s expensive – BUT IT’S WORTH IT. I took it on a small tour around my place and I’m so excited that my decision to sell my new Nikkor 400mm f/2.8 FL was the right one.
