Metal Lens Mounts
Unless it is marketed as such, a camera should not be disposable. For a photographer to fully realize a camera's potential and to use it as an extension of his eye, a period of getting to know (and then forget about) the equipment must take place. After that happens, the shots become automatic. Lenses are a part of that equation and should not be disposable either. Nikon lenses are quality optics, and that quality should not be limited to the glass. If I can't get a metal barrel and rings, I at least want a metal mount. When I discussed my preferences for a 70-210 zoom, some readers wondered why I needed a metal lens mount. Here is a photo lifted from an ebay auction that speaks a thousand words.
