I usually rent out FX Bodies for Wedding events but now looking forward to have one of my own. What kept me from buying D800 and D600 in the past were rumors and internet reviews about Dust and oil stains in 600/800 bodies. Still was a bit hesitant going for them models even after their upgrades like 610/810 or what ever. Just wanted to know, that are there any reported issues of stains and spots in this new Nikon D750 FX body till now being reported or heard about ?? Cause I would really...

Hi Guys, Wondering what focussing mode people are using for portraits.  I'm having a lot of soft focussing issues with D800 and 24-70.  Some seem super sharp, others are soft (i.e. it doesn't seem to have focussed on anything at all). I usually shoot in AF-S, focus on the eye and reframe.  I have heard some are using AF-C. Any thoughts? Thanks and advance, Ben.

If the sensor in the just announced G7 1" sensor is the same as the start-of-the-art 1" BSI in the RX100-3, I feel that increased the odds for Canon using a variant of the stellar Exmor 36 mpix full-frame in the 5d4 or 6d2. Or not? Caveat: it is still speculation that Sony 1" BSI being used in G7. Am I the only one who really, really hopes Canon takes the same "swallow their pride and losing face" attitude to help speed a competitive 5d4 & 6d2 to market? FWIW:I wasn't surprised that Sony sold...

I feel 6.5 frames a second is not fast enough for sports ..and there no grip that provides  faster frames per second to get 8 like the Nikon D700 ..nor d750 does not provide DX mode in the  D750 to get more frames per second to compete against Canon 7D Mark2 give 10 frames a second I suppose Nikon  D400 DX to provide 10 or 11 frames a second to compete against Canon 7D Mark2 so if you want full frame and faster frames a second then purchase  both bodies d750 and d400 this what Nikon wants...

Thinking of buying 70-200 f/4. Only venue I regularly need that focal range are my kids (theater/stage/sports) events, otherwise I prefer shorter focal lengths. I have D800 with 14-24, 24-70, 85 1.4 and sigmas 35 1.4. Not sure does it justify the cost for relatively low usage, but the reason I'm considering it is I fond a seller that would give it for 1000 euros. Please share your experience and sway me for or against.

I posted FoCal Aperture Sharpness Test Results for the Sigma 50mm f1.4 and Sigma 85mm f1.4 (both Nikon mount) in the Third Party Lens Talk forum, but didn't get any replies or feedback. I even included pretty charts, pictures, and graphs too! I'm trying to figure out if the test results are to be expected or not. I'm relatively new to photography and lens optics, so I'm not sure.  The test results don't seem to square with what I've seen on DXOMark and other review sites.  I'm also aware that...

Hi everyone, I upgraded to my first FX a couple of months ago in anticipation of our trip to Africa in August. Before that I'd been using a D90 for a few years. I bought the D610 after some comparisons with D800 vs D7100 vs D5300. I had such an amazing time with the D610 on that trip that I have come back wanting another FX. Now here's the crazy part, I'm just an enthusiast and not a pro. However, we don't have kids so we spend the back to school money on ourselves. :) The couple of things...

I am doing lens cal using FoCal software. To calculate the usable distance I need to know the percentage of the total sensor that the metering dot in the center occupies. Equations are described here: http://www.reikan.co.uk/focalweb/index.php/online-tools/test-distance-target-size-calculator/target-distance-size-information/ Question: what is the value for "s is the spot metering area as a percentage of the image area' on D800? Thanks ahead --1. D800 is the first camera with resolution so...

I thought I was crazy, but sure enough bottom left and top right are both very blurry, the center is also more blurry than it should be top and bottom.  I have a D800 and usually use the AF-S 24 - 120mm 1:4G ED lens. Now it was dropped, the strap just let go and it fell 1.5 feet to a concrete surface. On the pucker scale it was definitely a 10. There is no overt damage, but it seems like there are blurry spots or extra blur around the outside. I know that the center is the sharpest, but I'm...

Hi guysfirst question here, I hope I'm in the right place, otherwise I'm sorry for the mistake :DI'm going straight to the point, I want to change my camera body and finally it's time. I've got a lot of good lenses so high quality sensor is not a problem, I want a camera for great stills(i shoot mostly fashion and portrait) and I need to make also video, of course with steadycam, slider, follow focus etcI don't have a huge budget so at the moment I can go and buy a D800, but I have to wait a...
