  • Agreed.  His site offers a data point.  I'm pretty good at sorting through and analyzing data points to extract useful info. I don't understand the vitriol towards Ken Rockwell, his site, and ...
  • I'm not going to yammer about the semantics of "sharper" vs "more accurate" focusing - I know what you mean.  And I'll avoid moralizing about whether or not you should return your camera body ...
  • Created discussion thread Upcoming D500 "kit" with 16-80?
    Hi everyone - I notice that Amazon is listing what looks like a Nikon D500 "kit" that includes the Nikon 16-80 zoom.  But ... they're just adding what looks like the usual retail price of the ...

  • ... in case it got missed - I have no photo equipment right now (save for an iPhone, which delivers surprisingly well under juuuuust the right circumstances, otherwise it's not what I want to use). ...
  • Replied in Yes.
    I guess I don't see this as something that gear is going to fix for me.  I just want to get a camera (since I don't have one now) and was thinking about trying our a single prime for a while to ...
  • Replied in Yes.
    I should clarify that I have no photography gear at this time.  That should clarify things a bit.
  • Cool - so there's actually a named theory for this.  Maybe I should go read about it!  :-)
  • I'm not at all opposed at all to an m4/3 body that can produce excellent results, other than I have never seen an EVF that I liked at all.  But I haven't yet looked at the very latest gear.  And ...
  • I pretty much know the answer to this, at least generally.  I often had two zooms in my bag and a prime (all for FF): something like a 70-200, maybe a 28-70 or so, and then a 21mm or 24mm for ...
  • See - that's the point. I don't want to feel ANY negativity because I don't have this focal length or that focal length. I think what I want to re-experience from a long time ago is the reality ...
  • Created discussion thread An Idea For a Renewed Approach
    Hi everyone - I have an idea I'd like to run by you. I'm looking to get back into photography after a long hiatus.  I originally got into photography via film, manual operation cameras, primes, ...
  • One thing I'd like to know more about - take a D7200 and put a 16-80 on it.  Shoot a bunch of images that emphasis sharpness.  Then take a D750 and put the kit 24-120 on it.  Shoot the same bunch ...
  • I've actually given a lot of thought to the DX vs. FX thing.  I keep coming back to the reality that DX is less expensive, and if I go with the D7200 and some really excellent DX glass, and all ...
  • Ya - thought of that, but the more I read the great reviews on the new 16-80, the more compelling it sounds. Now that I look around, seems like the 18-140 is well-regarded too.
  • Created discussion thread A Tale of Two DX Lens Kits
    Dopey title, I know...  :-) I'd like to get some opinions on this - looking at putting together one of two possible "kits" based around a D7200. Emphasis on landscape, architecture, maybe 30% B&W, ...
  • Hi everyone - I'm getting back into photography after a long break.  Thinking of going with a D750 body.  I tend to nearly always shoot in the 17-100mm range, give or take.  Thought I'd look at ...
  • Watching that put me in a really good place.  Nice work.
  • Replied in D7200 vs D5500
    AF fine-tuning isn't in the D5500 as I recall - I wish it was though.  I was waiting to hear what the D7200 might be bringing, but now I may just grab a refurbed D7100 and get on with it.
