■ Hello, and a very warm wel­come to this, my first is­sue as ed­i­tor of N-Photo. And what a time to join the mag­a­zine: with all of the ex­cit­ing gear that’s been launched over the last few weeks, it’s hard to know where to be­gin, but of course the big­gest news for Nikon lovers was the launch of the ea­gerly-awaited (and much-hyped) D750. If the com­ments on our Face­book page are any­thing to go by, some of you felt that it didn’t live up to the hype – you can find out whether we agree in our re­view on page 92. Less con­tro­ver­sial was the launch of Sigma’s lust­wor­thy

150-600mm f/4.5-6.3 Sport lens. At £1600/$1999 it’s not cheap, but as we all know, qual­ity never is. We’ll be bring­ing you a full re­view as soon as we can lay our hands on one, but in the mean­time, you can find more de­tails in our round-up of new lenses on page 108.

And if that all sounds more bucket-list than bud­get-list, our com­pre­hen­sive group test of

Nikon-fit su­per­zooms might be just the ticket. Cov­er­ing lenses in the 16-300mm zoom range, it ex­plores how much bang you can get for your hard-earned buck, and whether a do-any­thing, go-any­where lens is a com­pro­mise too far.

And speak­ing of hard-earned bucks, if all that cam­era candy has left you feel­ing dan­ger­ously frivolous, you won’t want to miss our fea­ture on how to fund your pas­sion for pho­tog­ra­phy by sell­ing your work. Follow our top tips and you could start mak­ing cash this week­end…
