Hi, i'm new on digital photography and lenses i'm using Nikon D7500 and planing to buy; Nikon 50mm f/1.8D and Nikon AF-S 35mm f/1.8G DX 50mm is a full frame lens but 35mm is for aps-c lens isn't it? and i thought that 50mm will give equivalent 75mm because of the crop factor and 35mm aps-c lens will give exact 35mm, but in this buying guide it says "35mm F1.8 is equivalent to a 52mm 'standard' lens".can someone please explain this calculation? thank you... Nikon AF-S DX 35mm F1.8G Nikon's...

Hi! I have a Fotasy Nikon - NEX (Nikon SOny E ) adapter and it stuck to my Nikon 50mm 1.8 pencake E series lens... I can get it off (they stucked together NOT to the camera). Is there any solution how I should get them apart? There was a screw in the adapter I even removed it (you can see the hole), but nothing changed. Im am pretty fit, so I dont think "getting someone with a bigger biceps" would sove kind of problem. I appreciate any help, thanks in advance!!

Hello!New to DPreview :) I just got a Nikon D7100 a few weeks ago, (have had a D5100 for many years prior), but find myself having trouble taking burst shots that don't end up blurry when I pan the camera. Yesterday I went down to a state park where an informal time trial bike race was being held, and was casually taking photos of the cyclists as they flew by, but realized that the shots were slightly blurry when I was trying to track them.  The photos were taken in the Golden Hour (like,...

Hi all, I know this question might look silly in terms of a huge difference in the price of these two lenses! I just got my 24-70 f2.8G today and I am not still sure to keep or return it.  In 50mm, it seems that my prime lens 50mm is doing slightly better than this expensive lens. In general, would you please share me your opinion on Nikkor 24-70 or alternative option, having 24, 35, 50, and 85mm prim lenses.  Thanks

Since about 18 months ago have a 23.5x15.6 crop-format Nikon D5600. More recently I bought a AF Nikkor 50mm f/1.8D lens* which has worked very well at apertures of 2.5 or narrower, but which has presented some problems when I try to go wider. I have mostly used it for astrophotography, and at 2.2 I've found that lens distortions become very noticeable away from the center of the image. Mostly they are radial, with the stellar "dots" or "points" turning into "sausages", with the sausages...

hi everyone, i'm new to this forum and to photography in general and i've got a question for you: I'm planning on buying my first prime lens for my Nikon D3400. I made some research and decided to buy a 50mm but i saw it's available in AF, AF-S and AF-P on amazon. I think I know the difference between AF-S and AF-P but what is the difference between those and AF? Is it just an earlier version? Which should i buy for portraits?

I have a D5500 and picked up a cheap 50mm f/1.8D. I knew it wouldn't have auto-focus, but I wasn't very worried about that. My old Minolta was so slow and unreliable at auto-focus I used to put it into manual focus and just judge/guess/hope through the viewfinder. I noticed the D5500 is trying to assist me in manual focus - I can move the focus point around with the d-pad and it'll light up the focus light when it thinks it has something there in focus. Sweet! Is there anything else my D5500...

Good time! I have this question, of a friend who has this two working together, she told me the lens with a body D3200 was working fine on setting the f value using the dial, but when she passes the lens to the other body, the D3400, the dial won't work to change the f value, I checked it as long the lens is manual, I was wondering if she can be confused, about it or the lens work with the dial on the 3200 and just manual on the 3400. any words calrfying this will help. thanks in...

The was the first lens I bought (brand new for about $100) when I got into photography exactly 1 year ago, as everyone kept saying this is a must have lens. But 1 year down the line, I have rarely found myself using it. The main reason is its not sharp at f/1.8, and I need to stop down to f/2.2 to start getting sharp images. Even when I forced myself to use it (by not bringing any of my other lenses to streets, concerts, etc), I was kinda disappointed in its lack of versatility and/or usage....

is there any actual difference of performance/quality between a "US market" lens and the "international" ones out there?     I have been told if it goes casters up, that is on me vs being able to send it in to have nikon look at it.
