First off, I should say that I don't actually own a kit lens - I purchased my D5100 body only. Sometimes I wish I had a normal zoom so I don't have to carry all my lenses around. I asked a similar question in the past and found some possibilities, but I can't decide on anything: -Nikon 16-85mm -Sigma 17-70mm C -Sigma 17-50mm Any other suggestions are welcome. I could also go the cheap route and get a Nikon 18-105. Overall, I just want a standard range lens that handles well and has better...

I'm shooting for NGO's and only have one body the D5100. I've got 3 lenses, an 18-200DX, the 1.8 50mm (which I'm in love with) but its too tight for a lot of indoor work so I'm now looking at the 1.8 35mm… here is my dilemma, as I really want a second body so I have a back up do I get an FX body and a 35mm that'll be compatible or do I just stick with DX and if so which model is the best option? BTW, I am really happy with my D5100 and the 50mm, and a lot of reviews I have read say FX is not...

From what I've read iOS 8 provides for manual controls such as shutter speed, full manual etc. using third party apps, but I can't find one that supports this.  I have tremor and need to up the shutter speed.  I don't need or want an app with lots of bells and whistles, simply one that adds these kind of controls -- no image editing, no cute image distortion, etc.  All these make learning and using the app more complicated and I won't use them. Is it true and if so can anyone recommend a...

Hey everyone, i am looking to buy a new lens for my camera and cant decide what to get. I am looking for something suitable for landscape/architecture photography. I am confused as to whether a low apature (say f1.8) or a higher apature (say f4) is more suitable for this sort of photography. I have read somewhere that a higher f number (f16) is more suitable if the light is good? Considering all this, i am now seeing that for low light shots its probably best to get a prime (say...

Hello, I like fisheye lens effects but am reluctant to get a fisheye for a DX series camera, because its desired effect is reduced by the 1.5x factor. Could anyone please post examples of fisheye (8mm?) lenses on the DX cameras, or point to sites that display them? Thank you --RUcrAZ

Hi all, background infoI've been using a Canon 430EXII off camera with a Canon 60D, mostly outdoors as fill light but also in my apartment to learn flash photography: portraits, food ... whatever is fun, I'm a keen learner. I have some gels, diffuser, flash-bender and their work decently for headshots. My S.O has a Nikon SB-700 with her Nikon d5100. My only real experience has been a 2-day on-location shoot with two b1 500 Air, battery packs and light modifiers (softbox, stripbox ...). I...
