is there any AFS motor or lens that's faster than the eyes that God created? I just need a glass to correct my near sighted, VR or AFS is just useless.

Hey, I swear that I was thinking about this when I came back from RGB today..
I was thinking that since people are willing to afford like 2-3k for their AF-S lenses, why not pamper yourself by wearing Nikon glass?
After all, it's supposed to be clearer, sharper, and have less CA than the rest of the other brands....
I am really seriously thinking of making a pair.
Anyone knows where to make them at a good price?
Well, at least we know that Cathay Photo does not sell this 'Nikkor'... :bsmile:

Well I got mine at $300 for lens plus body (frame).

wow, that's serious money. you guys still using glass lenses for prescription glasses? i swore off them cos they are heavy (for moderate to high degrees of myopia peeps) and breakable.

My Myopia about 750deg, Astig around 150deg.
Its quite high actually.
Glass lenses dun get scratched so easily.
Tried those hard coated plastic lenses, but still get scratches.
Glass lenses really clear man.
I think the Nikon is ED ver if I'm not wrong.
Glass lens ok lah, Just take care lor.
I have never broken a specs glass lens b4.
Eversince I used glass lens, no more plastic lenses for me.
Not as clear.
Even my prescription contact lenses also not as clear as the Nikon glass lens.
Not biased here, its true.

Do you know that far-sighted people need to go optician to make some +4 filter for their spec in order to see near subject??

Help me ask for the price. Thought of using UV filter to protect my spec. How much is the lens cap

Ok so the question that everyone wants to ask.. where can we make Nikon lenses at the best price?
7th September 2003, 01:34 PM
heh, different folks different strokes, spending $200+ for a pair of lenses that will last me less than 2 years (av. spectacles lifespan) is too rich for my blood.
