I'm planning to purchase a Nikkor 50mm prime for general use  (street, portrait, landscape, etc). Is this lens good? I read mostly good reviews, but some reviewer said it does not perform well with FX bodies. Any feedback? Thanks

In trying to check out a D800e for functions, I am having difficulty formatting the storage, both CF and SD. I have followed the instructions on page 32 of the manual and nothing happens. It just goes back to the controls screen. Press and hold Mode and Trash until "For" appears. Press Mode and Trash again to format. There is only one card in the camera.  It goes back immediately to the control screen -- no indication of a format taking place.

Hi, Interested in my first mirrorless camera because I'm looking for a less heavy option when traveling. I'm coming from a Nikon D800E.  I'm interested in the Panasonic Lumix G7 but I keep looking at the Lumix GX8 and now the GX85.  The G7 comes as a kit with a 14-140mm lens at a very attractive price.  I do all types of photography including landscape, portrait, macro, etc.  I would like images that I can print in the 13x19 inch or 16x20 inch range.  Will the 16 MP G7 do OK or should I...

Hi everyone, I recently bought the Nikon D810 and have found that the eyepiece glass for the viewfinder has a bit of movement in it if I press it. I'm not sure whether this is normal for this camera, or if it's faulty in some way. To be clear, basically what is happening is that if I gently press on the viewfinder glass, it depresses like a button would by about 1.5mm. It will then move back into it's original place. It might seem trivial, but with a new and expensive camera, I don't want to...

Sure could use some help with AFFT a D800e with a AF-S 400 f/2.8 lens. I have used three AFFT methods trying to FT this combination, the lens align, the Dot Tune and now the FoCal Pro method. Getting similar results with DT and FoCal which is a -18. I can live with that except, when a TC-14e II is attached, the AFFT is out of range. So I attempted to use the Camera’s “default” adjustment with no better luck. This was my first attempt at using this method and my question is if I am doing it...

Normally I wouldn't be asking. I've always bought USA new and refurbished. Recently got an eBay email for a photographic page that led me to click on this offering from NJ outfit which looks like good ratings. I just looked at Nikon's refurbished and today they have their added 10% off which makes the D810 go for slightly higher priced than this band new grey with one year sellers warranty. Say's they've sold 262 of them. What I wonder is who are they sending their camera's to be fixed? Not...

Hi all, I've never done any nightclub photography before but will be helping a mate out next week. I will be using a Nikon D800E + Tamron 27-70mm F2.8 + Yongnua 568EX Speelight I have done a bit of research and I believe I'll need to shoot with a shutter speed 1/8 , ISO 400-800 and Flash 1/4 -1/64 in order to get a lot of ambient light and f4 or smaller apertube (5.6 for groups) My question is how do you shoot with 1/8 shutter speed and still get sharp pictures? I have tried at home with a...

Hi. The vertical & horizontal thumb wheels on my MB-12  that control aperture and shutter speeed do not work with my D800E, The lock button is not on . The main dial and sub dial work on the camera but they do not work on the MB-12. Is there a setting I have to make in the menu ?  I have tried changing lens but the same issue.  Thanks  Joe Parisi  Marco Island Fl. --Underwater photography: Keep the oceans clean for all to enjoy.http://www.pbase.com/image/60285018.jpg

Hi Guys, I am new in the forum. I apologise since I suppose there would have been lots of similar questions but I am new and... give me a chance! :-) I am not an pro, but I work in Marketing so I am able to see differences in terms of quality in pictures! I have a D610, I love to take pictures during my vacations (I like to travel all around the world), and I would like to buy a second body since I am used to work with prime lenses. Actually I have a 20 1.8 and a 85 1.8. Both of them are...

HI I have the Nikon D5100 now and I am using Nikon DX AF-S 18-55mm 1:3.5-5.6G Lens with it. I am getting the Nikon D800E for Christmas and I was wondering if I can use the same lens on it. Would it be a problem? Would it give 100% with that lens?
