100% NIKON 100% INDEPENDENT
■ 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…
