Outstanding class! This is a must own. You will refer back to this class many times during your photog career. John has put a ton of work into this class and it shows. Being able to download the slides and other Nikon glass info is wonderful. Even if you're not a Nikon shooter you will still gleam tons of information from this class, John covers in great detail the strength and weaknesses of each lens and when you might consider using it. I was expecting a good class, but this turned into an epic class. I watched multiple videos several times. The only bad thing I can say is I "had" to order a few more lenses! Thank you John Greengo for making a truly amazing class.

Finally I have some sense of what lens do, know what I have, what I would like to have, what lens to use, and how I can get images that I see. Best part of this session is it was made so clear, simple, logical, and practical. I am glad that I purchased this product. Now, I am going to look for more from John Greengo so I can take better understanding and take better images. Thank You.

What an excellent class! Honest, unbiassed and extremely thorough reviews and descriptions of the main Nikon lenses. I am considering purchasing a couple of lenses for my Nikon DSLR and before I saw this I couldn't find an answer to my questions: price vs quality, which one's the best lens for my needs. I'm not a technical person and I can never understand complicated reviews that you find online, but John Greengo explains in a entertaining way so that anybody can follow. Thank you!
