I have noticed that my focus dot does not agree with what my eye considers sharp through the view finder. For example recently shooting with my 70~200 f4 on the D800e when going by the focus dot I tend to find the need to correct by shift focus just to the point that the triangle to the right of the dot begins to appear. This also seems to be the case with LV focussing, meaning LV seems to match what I judge as sharp through the VF. Oh, this is manual focussing at a subject at infinity. I had...
I tried out my TC20 III attached to a 300mm f4 PF - all mounted on a D800E. I was not able to use 3D tracking and Auto under continuous focusing. S, d9, d21, d51 are all available for continuous AF, but not 3D and Auto. All the AF settings (including 3D and Auto) are available if I use the 300 without the TC20 attached Just to make sure, I attached the TC20 III to a Nikkor 70-200 VR II lens and mounted it on the camera. All the settings - including 3D and Auto were working properly. Does...
Hello, I have been shooting on Canon DSLR cameras for years and years. I have been waiting for Canon sensors to get better dynamic range, color etc for a while now, and when Canon released their "new" 5DSR in a 5D3 body with crappier low light, I finally decided to sell all of my Canon gear and go Nikon which is what I started on when I bought the D700 when it was new :-) So, I need help from all of you awesome Nikon people now that I have thousands of dollars and no camera gear. I shoot...
I just got a used Nikon Af-S II 2.8D 400mm. By all appearances it looks like new. I mounted it on a couple bodies yesterday, D300 & D800E and after reviewing a couple dozen tests shots I can see that something is not right. It does not appear to be hitting focus, anywhere for that matter. I can even see this in the viewfinder when zoomed a bit but on my 30" Apple display there is no doubt. I did a lens chart test to check for front & back focus which showed me that it does not appear to have...
I'd really like to get a D7200 to go with my pre-ordered 200-500... but I suspect it won't be much better quality than an image cropped to 24MP from my D800E and that will give me a similar apparent magnification? Mainly for water birds... Am I right in saying that it would be slightly better than the D800E as in pixels per feathers ratio but not enough to warrant the cost of the new body? And the D800E might have slightly better noise and dynamic range? A shot with my D800E - can't...
Does anyone have a setup for using the Nikon 60G for slide copying on a D800e FX Nikon? The Nikon copy device says it is only useable on the older lenses. This is not just a filter thread issue but has to do with the front lens element being flush at the front instead of recessed like the older Micros. The 60G will focus to 1:1 without an extension tube. Thanks Bill G --Photo Geezer
Hi guys, Have read through so many posts and seriously cannot make a choice. Brief background, I almost exclusively shoot landscapes and get inspiration from Ryan Dyar, Miles Morgan, Chip, etc. Not super talented in processing, but definitely know what I'm doing in terms of blending, masks, localized adjustments. So, I was almost settled on a used D800e and a 16-35 f4. Read so many mixed reviews and eventually started to look at the new Nikon 18-35. I read so much and everything started...
