  • This whole thread about who will dominate is just plain silly. Better yet, the offered selections are sillier still. There is no domination here. It's more an issue of who can survive the on slot ...
  • I just bought a L bracket from them and the foam had special slots for all eight screws. No plastic bag with this. LOL, I've been tossing them away. I have a set with all my camera bags and any ...
  • Created discussions Sunwayfoto
    I've purchased a number of arca-swiss parts from Sunwayfoto. The pieces are quite well made. The finish is not as good as RRS or Hejnar but for the average joe, they do the job quite well. Anything ...
  • I don't know why mirrorless people feel that Nikon and Canon are helpless in this area? I'm sure both companies have ripped apart and studied every mirrorless camera that offered anything that was ...
  • I think that is true because many people don't like changing lenses in the field. A prime is generally a better lens but locks you down to one focal length. Zooms offer focal length flexibility ...
  • Yes and that is unfortunate but it's what happens with Nikon and Canon. The current 300mm f/4 AF-S was released in 2000 with a MSRP of $1260 USD. The current MSRP is $1494 USD. The new version ...
  • This is another one of the subjects that has been beat to death. Generally speaking, for any sensor size, more pixels are better for higher resolution images. This works well with good light and ...
  • Sorry but that is the nature of the beast. Of course it will cost more and it will be better in many ways. I can't see Nikon hurting because of this? It's been the same with every lens refresh. If ...
  • OP, since your looking at Nikon, you'll probably get more helpful answers in the Nikon lens forum.
  • I don't exclusively use primes but because I'm old and and grew up with 35mm SLRs, I still love the 50mm framing. It doesn't matter what sensor size I'm using, I'll still try to find a prime that ...
  • Wow, your some lucky guy. Do you do macro or small birds? I just about always end up cropping with macro and with small birds. You could give me a 800mm and I'd still sometimes end up cropping to ...
  • I basically use f/4 zooms for outside where I don't like changing lenses. I use fast primes inside where changing lenses is not as big an issue and I want the faster lens.
  • I agree. Nikon won't be stupid enough to shoot themselves in the foot by dropping their range of f-mount lenses. It would alienate too many users. They will move to a new mount because the f-mount ...
  • The f/1.8 is a good lens for the price. Not a great lens but still quite good. It was only released in 2011 so it's not that old. If you want better then get the Nikon f/1.4 or better yet, the ...
  • Thanks for the comment but I seriously don't have an artistic bone in my body. Every now and then I get something that I like but it's purely by mistake. No point pretending to be something that ...
  • I know. There was a post by one person that questioned my comment. I felt that your post fully explained, what I didn't. Simply excellent! No but I think you use yours a lot more then I use mine. I ...
  • Very nice explanation. I didn't mean to cause confusion with my post about the Sigma 150 being slow. I mentioned it in my post because I know others have bought the lens and were disappointed by ...
  • I can't speak about the Canon 100 because I'm a Nikon user. I've had the Sigma 150 for about four years and it is a very nice lens. Slow focusing but well built and very sharp. One comment. My ...
  • People like what they like and one side will never convince the other side they are wrong in their selection. Why do we spend so much time on this same discussion? I like both for different ...
  • I'd like to do that but even at the lowest level, is it fully possible? Reading this thread got me thinking. Ok, I'm really not a Nikon 1 user but I bought one because of the 2.7 crop factor. Damn, ...
