It is Nikon, boys. Don't afraid.

Just setting AF fine tuning for new D7100 body found that all 6 my lenses (3 Nikkors, Sigma, Tamron and Tokina) have same tuning values for just out of box D7100 as for 3 years old D300s.

So don't be confused by some panikers here about fate of new bodies from Nikon. In general they are as good, as in golden days.

P.S. D7100 is wonderful camera.

Well, with a statement like that, we know you're open-minded (um, not choosy).  But I think YOU may have "afraided 'em".

I can't catch you mind directions. (um, don't understand your statements). But I think you may have something to say?

Sorry for omission of 'to be' before 'afraid'.

I believe that meaning wasn't reversed? Aren't "don't be afraid" and "don't afraid" the same? Help please!

The subject line in your original post would more correctly have been written, "It's Nikon, boys. Don't be afraid".

nfpotter was pointing out that by using the term 'boys', this could be interpreted as excluding 'girls'. Female contributors to these forums are few. We (I) don't want to make them feel excluded from conversation. So the subject line in your original post could have been, "It's Nikon. Don't be afraid". By not mentioning gender, all genders are included.

"Don't afraid" is not grammatically correct. In this context, "Don't be afraid" is correct.

Cheers,

Thank you. The english grammar is simple in general, but I tend to mix an adjective and verb.

True, but "boys" can be considered generic for anyone, unless one is a politically correct ideologue. In that event you could say "don't be afraid peoples, it's Nikon."

Why people only? What do you have against animals! Aliens algo will protests...

Be politically correct up to the (idotic) end.

To be honest, girls photographers that I know never do such loose thing as to tune autofocus. They just took camera and shoot.

Re: Inglish Grandma

You must know a fairly restricted group of female photographers.

There are any number of slang expressions you could have used. Idioms are irregular - that's their nature. Females are very accustomed to being grouped with males in such expressions as, "Let's go, guys." Your English is far better than my grasp of whatever your native language is, no matter what it is. Frankly, you weren't objectionable until your last post. That wasn't a language issue, but rather an attitude one.

too expensive for me right now. Besides I am still enjoying not having any banding, oil spots, skin tone issues or focus problems with my D7000. I am just so unbelievably lucky.
