I just purchased a Nikon 400mm f2.8 lens and it is slated to arrive soon.  Can anyone provide a thorough process to assure the lens is 100% functional and tack sharp.  The lens will be mated to a Nikon D3.  Thanks.

I've been trying to get answers from Nikon support.  The responses I get are the support persons' best efforts, but it's never enough.  I keep having to ask more because the answers are very narrow and a little vague.  Now that their Website is temporarily being fixed, I can't even log on to my account to ask for more help. I use a D3 among other Nikons.  Lately the D3 is missing some shots, (missing=the image file is corrupted and won't open ~10 out of 100 shots).  One support person thought...

I have been reading these forums for a long time and recently decided to register and start to participate since I got a d800 on Friday and I was sure that I was going to have a few questions about it. Firstly I have to say I was quite intimidated by all the negative posts I have been reading for 1 year (green tint, focus errors,etc...). Since I do mostly landscape I wasn't too afraid about the famous left-focus point error but much encouraged by the high pixel count and DR. Now that I got it...

I am considering purchasing used D3.  Where do you go looking for such gear and what to look for, other than shutter actuations? Known sources, no particular order: Roberts   keh.com  (I learned yesterday they do not provide shutter actuations) Mid West Camera Exchange Columbus Camera Group eBay craigslist I am sure there a lot more places to go check, any more suggestions?

Hi.  I have bought an EM5 as a portable alternative to my Nikon D3 and I am liking it.  However, I'm struggling to understand the intricacies of how different function options work and conflict.  As an example, I have downloaded what I think is the full instruction booklet from the Olympus website, but the information displayed in my viewfinder bears very little relationship to what is shown on page 30 of the booklet and described as 'Viewfinder information'.  What I see in the viewfinder is...

Hi! I think it was about a year ago. Somebody posted his incredibly good holiday photos, which impressed me greatly. I did not write down the name of the photographer or save any other pointers. Can somebody help me locating this photo gallery? (might not have been this forum, but it was definitely dpreview, or at least a link to a gallery was posted on dpreview). I want to study these photos once more, for composition, exposure and postprocessing. I am pretty sure it was a professional...

Hi.  I have just bought a used OM-D.  The rationale was to use it as a combination of giving me a second body (alongside my Nikon D3) for theatre work and as a lightweight option for walking in the hills.  It didn't have the flash unit with it but since I don't use flash for what I was intending to use the OM-D for that wasn't an issue.  However, now that I have started to use the OM-D I love it and it is so portable that I would like to be able to ditch my old Canon compact that I have been...

I haven't been too active in the fora lately, as I have been extremely busy with our projects. And through this period of intense activity, i came to realize an upgrade might be in order. For those who don't know, I'm a portrait photographer (our assignments are mostly bands in dark clubs, but also the occasional daylight/studio general portraiture) Currently I'm a DX shooter, and I've always been happy with DX (been mostly using a D2x + D300 combo). Looking at my upgrade options, considering...

Hi, I'm shooting more and more time-lapse with my D800E so am more aware of the shutter rating of the camera body (200,000 in the D800 in believe). Rather than buy another body just to use with TL work I telephoned Nikon UK to ask how much a replacement shutter would cost should I reach 200,000 shots. Unfortunately he refused to tell me and said I had to send the damaged camera in first. Obviously this was a speculative query and the camera isn't damaged yet. I don't particularly want to...
