  • I had to send my 24-120 in to Nikon.  When focus adjusting it, I found it needed something like +4 at 24mm and +16 at 120mm.  After sending it in, it doesn't need any adjustment across the range. H ...
  • Hi Amrot, Dance photography is tough, and it gets tougher as your kids get older. My oldest just graduated high school and is part of a local dance company. I'm often shooting at 1/400, f2.8, ...
  • FYI I've shot horses inside stables before with flash and it hasn't been an issue.  You have to do a test with the horses before hand so that they know that the stands, umbrellas/softboxes, etc ...
  • Thanks for the response. The weight of the 80-400 does worry me (have arthritis starting in my hands) but the range would be great ... There are rumors of a 70-300 replacement, I might just wait it ...
  • Hi RRowlett, Given that you own both the 70-300 and the 80-400 D, can you please share your thoughts on how they compare at 300mm? Thanks, Berardino
  • This lens is prone to lens flare, but apparently not as bad as the 1.4d. A hood should help. BTW what hood did you order? I ordered the rubber hr2 hood for my 1.4d but haven't gotten it yet. I'm ...
  • Replied in Tamron 35mm VC
    It was about a week (10 days max), it was a little while ago and my memory isn't what it used to be :) It cost me $140 for the repair (I bought the lens used so no warranty).  My hood mount was ...
  • Replied in Tamron 35mm VC
    I had a Tamron 28-75 2.8 that had about as big a problem with focus (+8 at 24 and -16 at 75).  I finally sent it in for repair and it came back very consistent (still needed -6 but was the same at ...
  • I have the same lens, it worked fine with my d7000 but wouldn't focus in live view with my d610.  When the focus motor failed last summer I sent it in to Sigma to fix that and they updated ...
  • Di is Full Frame (FX) Di II is Crop Frame (DX) Not as clear as other vendors but it works :) Take care, Berardino
  • Yes and no :) You should see a small improvement because the newer architecture is more efficient per clock cycle so even though the GHz is lower, it will be slightly faster.  More memory will ...
  • Yeah, good point but he'll be fine. It will drive a 27" at up to 2560x1200, the HD4000 is the same graphics processor as my old 2012 macbook pro that drove a 27" monitor at full resolution. He'll ...
  • I've used my U2713HM with my macbook pro over thunderbolt using a mini DP to DP cable.  No problems. I now mainly use it with a hackintosh with a DP to DP cable.  It's a great monitor, mine was ...
  • I had the same problem with mine.  When I focus tuned it, it needed something like +12 at the 28mm end and even +20 couldn't fix the 75mm end.  I ended up sending it in to Tamron, it cost $140 ...
