View Full Version : Returning lenses?
18th of December 2001 (Tue), 00:56
I purchased a D30 from canoga cameras and got it last friday with this lens. I have about 0 experience with photography (even less with proper spelling). I paid 250? or 260 for this and think I would be better off trying to return this and get something else within $2-300 above what I paid for this. I think I am going to stick strictly with canon lenses(probably a canon 50 f1.4/usm). Any opinion on this lens whether I should keep it or return it and has anyone had prior experience returning stuff to Canoga? My concern is that after shipping, 15% restocking fee, etc I would be better off keeping it and buying something else. (For the record Canoga Camera was great, nothing against them, just dont like this lens)

Well, you never said which lens you actually bought... just how much you paid for it! :)
However, I will say that the 50/1.4 is a FANTASTIC lens. If money's tight, you might opt for the 50/1.8... it's smaller, cheap as dirt ($80), but lacks a USM motor.
Final thought... DO NOT FILL OUT YOUR WARRANTY CARD!!!!! If you do, Canoga cannot accept exchanges or returns.
So, what lens did you get? How are you liking your new D30?

Sorry, the header of the message had it in there before I changed it. I purchased the Tamron 28-200 f/3.8-5.6 . I went to the local store today and bought a 50mm f/1.8. I am still playing with the 50mm but so far it takes great pictures compared to what I have taken so far. I think I might also opt for the 70-300 f/4-5.6 . I know it isnt the best lense going but for low 200 it should work just fine for me until I actually get the basics down and then I can go from there
PS. I did return the lens with 0 problems to Canoga, they were great, no problems at all. It is nice to have confidence in a company 2200 miles away
