Hi, Just wondering, if I want to set the hyperfocal focus distance on a Nikon AF-S Micro-Nikkor 60mm f/2.8G ED to shoot a landscape, and my calculator software tells me the distance is 11.4 metres at f11, how do you set that given the lens barrel markings go straight from 1 metre to infinity? Can you manually dial the focus distance in on a D800, or would you need to measure out to the hyperfocal distance, and then focus on an object located there? thanks. --matt goddenhttp://www.golgotha.com.au

Hi, I’ve been shooting with my D3000 for several years now and I think it is time to reexamine my setup. I’m about to upgrade to a D3100/3200 or D5100, mainly for video and better high ISO performance. I’m not sure which direction I’ll go, but this isn’t my main concern. I currently have the kit 18-55 VR, the 55-200 VR and the 35/1.8. So far, 98%+ of my photos are with the 35/1.8. This is because I prefer to zoom with my feet, I like an unobtrusive look and I usually shoot in low light (often...

Hi Folks, Just wondering if anyone has a recommendation for a polariser for the f2.8g 60 Micro. Nikon make one which Adorama have at a significant discount from Australian retailers (AU$90ish vs 200ish). http://www.adorama.com/NK62CPLN.html While Nikon list this filter as a compatible accessory for my lens, a tech note (Article 21603) on one of Nikon's sites lists the following for 62mm filter: "Vignetting occurs with focal length shorter than 135mm" The 72mm version has: "Vignetting occurs...

I recently read some information regarding a Pentax camera and thought that the camera was better than most Nikons! However, as I have invested in Nikon lenses, I would only buy a Pentax camera if there was a way to attach Nikon lenses to a Pentax body without damaging the lenses. Does such a way exist? Do lens adapters greatly affect image quality? Thanks!
