    Does anyone have any lens recommendations for Nikon, a D3300 specifically, they can be Nikon or third party. Not opposed to buying used either.

    Primarily to be used for surf photography via the beach/jetties? Wife doesn't really surf but would like to venture out more often with me and have something to do.

    Price range up to $1k.

    Nikon 70-300mm lens and Nikon telecoverter TC-20E, which will get you quite close but would be f6+.

    My favorite all around is the Nikon 70-200mm f2.8, but this is twice your budget for just the lens. With the teleconverter is only f4.

    Is your Nikon a K mount? If so I have a used one that I bought a while ago. With an adapter for Sony. It is a 70 to 300. Even with the adapter it did not work well with My Sony a6000. Found another lens made for the Sony that go to 300mm. My 200 is nice but want just a little bit longer. Let me know if you are interested.

    Thanks but I'm pretty sure it's an F mount. It's all good, I'm not in to much of a hurry while i'm saving up my pennies.

    I had a Brain Fart, it is a F mount. $89 plus shipping that should be around $10 to $15
