well, you got yourself a brand-new d500 but you want to use sigma lenses, you even have some of the older lenses, not the new art or global vision lenses, you have something like an 18-250 for your nikon camera. will it work or do i have to go ahead and put all this stuff on craigslist. hi, this is izzy again from digital goja showrroms. if this video helps you

upgraded to one of their professional series or prosumer, honestly i think it’s more professional oriented crop sensor cameras, their new d500, but guess what you still had lenses that you work with your older design nikon like for example the 18-250 from sigma. this is not a global vision lens but guess what it’s a great all-around travel lens for
a camera like this. this already a big enough body to begin with so maybe you’re traveling and you just don’t want to walk around with a slew of lenses so this is why this lens is very popular 18-250 nice macro capability, lightweight and guess what focus is perfectly with this camera as a matter of fact let’s try the live view with the touch focus.
so mean it’s in a dark environment but it’s doing it. yeah, it’s actually focusing by me touching on the screen. so if i go ahead and activate the focusing system with the touch focus its doing it for me so i can go ahead and lets see if it will even take a picture. here’s the touch shutter, there it goes, even that works so there you
have it you can work with your smaller all-around zoom from sigma, but let’s say you did step up your game and you also jumped in for that brand new 50-100 for crop sensor. this is their art series 1.8 lens, this is a great lens for event photography any kind of shooting situation where you want that tighter crop and you also want that beautiful
1.8 capability. perfect, it actually feels really good in the hand because this camera is meant for this size lens. there it goes, it’s focusing right on the money, yep let me change it to 1.8 see if it’ll yep and again let’s try the live view, it even allows me to snap the picture this way or to do my touch focusing and i’ll
tell you honestly especially in low light where i am in here it’s doing a little bit of hunting but in a brighter environment. i don’t see this being a problem wow yeah it’s allowing me to focus rather quickly even with the touchscreen. so now you really stepped up your game and you’re doing some nature photography
which is one of the reasons that the d500 is so popular among nikon enthusiasts, well here you go very popular lens, this is their 150-600 this is their contemporary design so it’s a little bit lighter weight than their sports model but let’s take a look here and see do all the way to 600mm see if i can focus all the way on the other
side of the digital goja showrooms. yeah picking all the way in the other side and again let me try the live view its again allowing me to lock my focus. wow, so again you have the capability of being able to work with your sigma art series lenses or even the non global version before and be very happy with the way they function with your new d500.
