  • Thank you for your thoughts and insights. Either way, it is an expensive purchase. In the past I have either purchased locally (new or used) or else purchased from B&H or Adorama. I have also ...
  • Created discussions Nikon Gray Market Lenses
    I am planning to "bite the bullet" and purchase a Nikon 14-24mm zoom. The fair trade price seems to be just under 2K. I have noticed several vendors on ebay selling these new for a little over ...
  • I own this same excellent lens and do not get images as saturated as yours. I shoot raw and usually convert to dng. I also cannot imagine that it is the lens but I do not have an answer as well. ...
  • Noticed the 30 second exposure...I used to try to use various IR filters on a D700 and D600. Between the long exposures, lack of viewing visibility, light leaks, etc., I became discouraged. I had ...
  • For those who are shooting with Nikon IR modified cameras and shooting RAW, getting a proper white balance has been kind of a pain. The new NX-D software allows you to load adjustments into ...
  • Nice photos! I guess I am suprised that such a small, light, and (in my case) somewhat forgotten lens has plenty of life left in it. As I mentioned in the first post, I have no problem with the ...
  • Created discussions Old 24mm 2.8 AF still has life
    After not using it in over 10 years, I pulled out an old 24mm 2.8 AF (non D) lens out of a bag that I purchased in the late 80s. I thought to myself that this lens doesn't "have a chance" on my ...
  • I live in Utah, where it is also dry. I find that if I do a nozzle check on my 4900 printer weekly it stays happy. Much longer than that and a cleaning (1 or 2) will be required. I also keep a ...
  • I didn't know they sold this without the VR version..11 elements vs 7 elements. All I can say is the relatively inexpensive VR version surprises me in it's sharpness.
  • I own both lenses and have found "my" use for each. I shoot landscapes and use an FX body for the planned, tripod mounted shots. This is where I would reach for the 70-200 - it has all be said - ...
  • I have owned mine for years and never thought twice about the rear element...Great Lens!
  • If you are new to DSLRs and video as well, may I suggest you simply stick with the 18-55 lens that probably came with the camera? This will give you a variety of focal lengths to experiment with ...
  • I know you said under 1k, but I have to say that I love my 16-35 f4. I also own a 24 2.8 and an older 20-35 f2.8 zoom, yet my 16-35 is the one I grab. Super sharp, and covers at least 3 primes. ...
  • It has already been mentioned, but I will add my endorsement for the 70-200 f4. I use it in the field a lot. Tack sharp and a lot smaller and lighter than the 2.8
  • Created questions Lens Wiggle
    I have an older 18-70 DX lens that will "wiggle" a bit if you grab the end of the lens (front) and move it back and forth. I would say that the movement totals less than a mm, but none of my other ...
  • Take it for what it is worth...I have owned an old Epson Artisan 800 printer now for 4+ years and it has never missed a beat! It mostly sits (turned on) as I have other printers, but when I print ...
  • Are you talking about Fuji paper that you had printed at a pro lab using RA4 chemicals (i.e. Lightjet prints)? If so, I think that is a resin coated paper that is exposed via laser light. Glossy ...
  • I also have to say that I have been happy how (relatively) easy it has been for me to keep my 4900 printing fine after owning it for about 15 months (compared to the postings I have read). I also ...
  • If I am walking a lot I leave the FX cameras at home and grab my DX backup with 2 non-pro (light weight) lenses. The DX sensor is still plenty and shooting RAW gives me a lot of flexability..my take.
  • I can only speak for my experience...I love my D600. Yes, I do clean the sensor every now and then, but you will have to do this no matter which camera you purchase. I experienced a little oil ...
