The way things are going, how I see a new Olympus looking in 2020:
I have an Nikon 28-300mm lens coming tomorrow for my D610
New hardware is always exciting .
Hello Photography! Thread. It's been a while. I've run out of cool things to shoot. Thankfully, I acquired a semi-broken Nikon Coolpix 5200, which turns mundane things into glitch-tastic works of art!

I say "semi-broken" because the camera does work perfectly when there's enough light... but once it gets to dark, it totally glitches out!
Since it's broken anyway, remove the IR filter for more bizarre pictures?
What is this logo on the back of my new lens, Ken Rockwell says it means your lens will only last up to 10 years because of "tin whiskers" that grow and short out the electronics.
I thought it might be a plastic recycling code, but i cannot find an number 10
Is he correct.
Nah. I have too many other and more important things to do in my life; plus it probably WILL detect IR light anyway, at least when I push a button on a remote control and point the IR end of the remote at the camera at the same time. However, I've never tested it on that Coolpix 5200 (it does work on my 13-year-old Canon PowerShot S100--The IR light show up as white dot. Go figure!)
It does mean that it should last 10 years, but it'll last a lot longer than that. As long you take care of your gear you'll have nothing to worry about. I have three lenses which are just about that age and still going perfect.
