I'm non-pro, obviously, and have a D800E which I'm slowly growing into - I come from having fallen for photography with the GF1 and M43rds. Once I started to bump up against the (then) limits of the system I then took the somewhat nuts step of going hardcore FF with the D800E... Right now, I have the Nikon 50mm 1.8, Nikon 85mm 1.8 and Sigma 35mm. I chose primes partly to not overwhelm myself with all the options at once, partly for weight, partly for quality/cost. I've tended to concentrate...

Hello everyone, Hope you are well. I want to get a tele lens for shooting the full moon and also air show or sports. I am trying to decide between this two lenses and was wondering who choose which lens and why. So far I can see: NIKON 80-400mm VR (new model): * Possibly sharper, need feedback on that. * Shorter and less wider range than Sigma 50-500mm * Double the price of Sigma * Lighter than Sigma * Nikon lens (Possibly better QC) * Better Stabilisation (Not sure) Sigma 50-500mm OS: *...

I know, the 300/4 VR doesn't exist yet, but there has been a lot of discussion about it and I think there is a good chance it will eventually be introduced.  VR would be a great addition just as AF-S was on the 80-400. Background: I use a D800E; for telephotos I have a 70-200/2.8 VR I (good for sports but not landscapes), a 70-200/4 VR (great at many things and smaller/lighter), and a 300/4 AF-S (great quality, near-macro focusing, 400/5.6 with a TC). My typical "heavier" travel kit includes...

I am planning on a wildlife photography trip to South Africa (Kruger) & wanted to get some feedback on the use of a teleconverter, which i have never used. Any pros & cons & which one will be best suited ?

I realize the 70-200 is a wonderful lens, but since I mainly use it on my D800 to shoot my kids' sports, I use it with the 2x converter and outdoors the majority of the time. I'm not always happy with the results, as the bokeh of many of my shots is ugly with the 2x attached, and there is aberration or "fuzziness" at the frame's lateral margins with the lens/converter combo.  I  would think that the 80-400 would fare better. Again, the 70-200 alone is nearly as sharp as my go-to-lens and...
