Photo Plus Expo – Nikon Stage

I have the distinct honor of being back on the main Nikon Stage at this year’s Photo Plus Expo.

Second Look: The New Nikon Compact DL 18-50 f1.8-2.8 – Part 2: Go Wide

I talked mostly about the  Nikon’s DL 24-85 f1.8-2.8 in my last post, now it’s time to talk about the DL18-50 f1.8-2.8 camera.

You can see from the behind the scenes video just how quick and nimble this camera is.
