Hello all, new to DP Review here.  Want to thank anyone in advance for any insight or responses regarding my questions- Backstory:  My father and I want to buy a new lens to share.  We are torn between the Nikkor 70-300 VR lens, and the Tamron 70-300 VC.  My dad is from the old school and does not want to put anything on his camera (D90) that is not a Nikkor lens.  I'm a very open to trying a 3rd party lens because I have put in the research in to it and see that a handful of lenses have...

Hello Everyone, I need your advice please, but maybe a newbie question :) I recently purchased a Nikon AF-S VR 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED. The first time I used it I shot a car rally. The lens has allowed me to make great shots but, in some of these, the details in background appears splitted (not in all). The camera was hand-helded, with stabilizer on, AF-C and Af-ON used. At the moment of shoot, Af-ON was pressed, in order to retain focus on the front bumper of the car. Linked photo: 1/1000...

Hi everyone, I am very interested in taking pics of snowflakes but I have no idea how to do so. I have an Olympus E620 with a 35mm 3.5 macro lens. Do I invest in extension tubes? I also have a Nikon D7100 but I don't have a macro lens for it yet. Any help would really be appreciated!!! Thanks, Ysanne

Hi everyone, Just wondering if anyone tried this combo for taking photos of moon? Is 300mm good reach for the moon, or do I have to get an extender? I don't want to carry something heavy so trying to stay within the weight of 1kg for the lens. --http://www.mf-photography.com

I just purchased on e-bay the above TC with the expectation of using it with my variable aperture zoom lens. I mounted it on a d7100 with the above lens. And then I found out auto focus was hit and miss! For whatever reason I was not expecting this. It works very well with my 300 f4 of course but I was expecting the option to use it with a zoom - with AF. MF is of course a workable option but less convenient. Was I wrong in my original assumption? Should I be happy with the MF on a...

hope this is the right place to ask this one?? The attached image has a noticeable blue fringe around most of the blue damsel fly and part of the gray damsel. What causes this and how to fix?? I used a D7100 with Nikkor 70-300VR (do not recall if VR was on). This is not a major problem for me - just noticed on this capture. The image posted is a SOOC but cropped to about 22% from original (and then exported at reduced size again). EXIF data: ISO100, 1/200s, f7.1, +1/3EV, spot metering, AP,...

I recently purchased the Nikkor 70-300mm lens to replace the 55-200 lens that came with my D60 camera kit. This is my first DSLR and I love it. I keep it on auto most of the time, but have "played" with the settings - enough to know that I don't know what I am doing. I hope to find time to play some more. I shoot mostly family, sports, and classroom activities. My concern is when I shoot family activities or in the classroom I am constantly changing the 70-300 lens with my 18-55 that came...

Hi All, Apart from careful handling and cleaning of the outside, do lenses generally need any maintenance by specialist people after some time of constant use?  All my lenses, but one, are Nikkor and fairly new. I would appreciate some feedback. --Thanks,Daisy AU - Brisbane
