Hi, I have been shooting with Nikon D3200 mostly birds, and i am looking to upgrade to a better camera. D3200 doesn't have good enough AF, it mostly misses the focus and grinds it back and forth.(Nikkor 55-300mm) I know that this lens has slow AF. Also it seems like i can't get bright photos because i try to shoot mostly in F/8 with my nikkor 55-300mm to get the sharpest possible results, and if i bring the ISO up, its all noisy and shoft. I have been thinking about D7200 or D610. I am...

Hi, I have a relatively new (less than 1 year old) Nikon D5300. It has been working fine for a while, but today I turned it on to take some pictures but the autofocus through the viewfinder will not work. I Have to hold the button halfway to focus, but then it waits around 5 seconds before going through its whole range of focus. When I use the screen to autofocus, it works just fine. I have two lenses, the Nikon DX AF-S 18-55mm and the Nikon DX AF-S 55-300mm. It doesn't matter which lens I...

On this Thursday, I promised some of my classmates that I would shoot my school's first junior varsity basketball game. Except I don't ever shoot sports. I thought I would use this as an opportunity to expand my range. I usually shot a few portraits and people, if you count school events. I might be able to snag a seat up front but there are no guarantees because I would have to ask the coach first.  I have a nikon 55-300mm lens with a very small aperture range, its f4.5-5.6, so it isn't...

Hi i was wondering if its worth trading my dx gear for full frame I would be trading D7100 with Nikon 35mm 1.8 Nikon 17-55 2.8 Sigma 50-150 2.8 Nikon 10.5 fish eye 2.8 Nikon 50-300 f4:5 Nikon 40mm macro 2.8 For a D800 , nikon 24-70mm and 50mm 1.8 I shoot all types and i mainly use the 17-55 and 35mm 1.8 often. So is full frame really worth trading my DX family for.

Can anyone confirm that the Nikon 55-300mm VR has a max aperture of f5 at 200mm? This is claimed on Ken Rockwell's site, but I want to make sure as otherwise I would prefer to get the 55-200mm. --Dpreview Auto image-resizer for Firefox :http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/105066Chrome version here:http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/105067

Hi everybody, first of all thanks to taking time to read this and your help. After reading lots of reviews and specifications I was ready to purchase a D5200. However, I then found a good sale for a D7000, so right now my options would be: 1) D5200       + 18-55mm 3.5-5.6 AF-S VR (kit lens)       + 55-300mm 4.5-5.6 AF-S VR or 2) D7000       + 18-105mm 3.5-5.6 AF-S VR (kit lens)       + 70-300mm 4-5.6G AF Guess you already know specs of each camera, pros of each of one for me are: 5200:...
