Hi all! I recently purchased the 35mm f1.8g about a week ago. Since then, I've noticed that mounting the lens on the D3300 is quite tight. I previously owned another 35mm f1.8g a few years ago along with the D5100 body and I don't remember the mounting being this tight. It almost feels like it's grinding the metals together when mounting. I was just wondering if this was normal or should I consider getting the lens replaced? Thanks!

Hello Could someone please advise me of choosing between Nikon D5200 VS D90. I do know the basic advantages as follows: D90: Has a top LCD panel which is very useful, Has built in focus motor, more pixel density D5200: More colorful picture, higher ISO for night time photography, more focus points, Flip out screen D5200 vs D90:- Shutter Lag 300 ms vs 200ms, Continuous shooting 5 fps vs 4.5 fps Similarity: both has the same shutter speed 1/4000 But still confused. I am a beginner in...

I'm looking to take first tentative steps into DSLR photography to capture memories of my new born girl as she grows up.  I think I've narrowed down to my choice to Nikon and at the same price point it seems you can get the D5100 and D3200 bundled with kit and telephoto lenses or a D3300 (body only). Would I be better investing in a newer body with updated processing engine (D3300) and taking the hit on buying a separate lens or can I save my money and plump for one of the older...

Hi guys, I know this question has been asked before, but after an exhaustive search online for options I'm still no wiser as to what shotgun mic to purchase for my D5100. I've watched several YouTube videos in which the Rode video mics (a popular choice) don't seem to fair too well in conjunction with the D5100. Has anybody any personal experience in this area? I am planning to upgrade to a D810 later in the year so I am looking for something that will work well with them both ideally. Many...

New to DSLR cameras, I need one to take high-quality photos of my paintings for reproduction. (Original art does not get much bigger than 14"x14") While investigating what kind of lens to get, I realized that I should just go ahead and order the camera and then try different prime lenses at the store. I've narrowed it down to Nikon D5100 (or D3500) or a Canon Rebel T3i. The primary use of this camera will be to take reproducible pictures of watercolor paintings, so as far as the camera goes,...

Hi, I'm currently shooting with a D5100 and a Nikon 200-400 F4 VRI. My biggest issues are with the small number of focusing points, noise at high ISO needed to get decent shutter speed and limited dynamic range. One key question is would the increase in performance in noise and dynamic range of the 750 offset the loss in reach in moving to full frame, or do I have to go to the 810 with higher pixel count to make the move work? Is the almost 3x cost of the 810 vs. 7100 worth it for my...

Hello, I'm planning to buy a Macro cum portrait lens for my D5100. I've shortlisted two lenses: 1. Nikkor AF-S Micro NIKKOR 60mm f/2.8G ED (in used condition) 2. Tamron SP AF 60mm F/2 Di II LD [IF] MACRO for Nikon As per DXOMARK sharpness comparison (see below link) between these two lenses, although Tamron has max aperture of f/2, I cannot see any significant difference in f/2.8 to f/11 range (at center) (f/5.6 being the sweet spot for both the lenses). Considering sharpness at the corner,...

Hello fellow forum members. My wife and I are considering switching to a DSLR from a basic point and shoot. We are complete newbbies when it comes to DSLR's and photography in general, but we are looking to learn, and maybe make a hobbie out of it. As of now, the camera will be used indoors and outdoors mostly photographing and taking videos of our toddler, family pictures, family events, and sites of attractions when we travel. I do not anticipate doing any landscape, sports or long distance...

Hello, I'm in a bit of dilemma. I own D5100, 18-55 mm kit, 35 mm f/1.8G and 70-300 mm VR and my shooting interests include - portraits, toddlers in action, travel, nature, landscapes, monuments and architectures and macros. So far, for portrait purpose, I was using 70-300 mm which is a very good lens except for its AF hunts in low light situations. So I'm considering buying a used 85mm f/1.8G. Is it a correct decision? I'm afraid this lens make my 70-300 mm obsolete - is that so? Or should I...
