Today, I changed from Nikon D3s to canon 1D Mark IV, and looking forward to trying my first canon shots. I am planning to buy telephoto lens but a bit undecided about 100-40 or 400mm f5.6. What would you recommend?

On my D300, D800, and D7000, I have always used the Fn button to temporarily change the metering mode (usually from Matrix) to Spot. This way I can use Matrix metering for most shots but quickly change to spot metering when the situation calls for it. Unless I'm missing something, the only way I can change the metering mode on the D7100 is to use the button/dial on the top of the camera. Not only does this force me to take my eye off the viewfinder (since the mode is not indicated in the...
All, I have a D200 and a D300, but I've lately wanted something with better low-light capability. I've been holding out for the possibility of a D300 replacement, and while that may still come (who knows?!), I have the chance to purchase a D700 with a Nikon MB-D10 grip, with approximately 34K actuations, for $1150. Seems like a great deal, but I'm wondering what others may think. I've looked at prices at KEH.com, B&H, and Adorama, but it's hard to say for certain as those sites don't list...
I'm having serious brain freeze and a bit of the stupids this morning. With that in mind, my question How much influence does the Nikon camera body, D300s, D7100, D5200,D90 for examples with the 17-55 mm 2.8 or with a like lens under the same light same exposure, metering pattern, same filters on the camera, same editing program commands same everything with the Only variable being the camera body make a difference if at all in the final result. Let's assume the printing is all the same...
I understand when there was the D2x and the D300 why the differentiation between "pro" and "non-pro" DX cameras. But since 2010 there have been cameras like the D5200 and D7000 that were far better cameras than these "pro" DX cameras in almost every respect. I had the D2x, D3, D300 and all their predecessors, and now have the D800e and the D7100 cameras. The IQ from the D7100 surpasses all of these DX cameras by a wide margin. It produces images at ISO 3200 that compare well to those from...
Hi, I'm new to this forum but have browsed a lot in the past when reading the wealth of information on here. I currently have a bit of a problem that I'd really like some help with - I've got about £380 to spend on a DSLR body -and- lens together, preferably second-hand from eBay and I'm also preferably looking at Canon or Nikon. About 4 years ago I bought a Nikon D40 which I liked a lot but didn't like the small viewfinder, lack of self-cleaning sensor, low FPS for wildlife photography,...
Hello dear reader! I have a complication in that I want to move to full frame from my current and trusty D300 but not sure which way to go. The recently announced D810 is a bit overkill and out of my price range so I'm thinking of a D610, used D600, D700 or even a D3 if the price is right. I'm comfortable with all bodies and don't mind if it's big or small. My current lenses are: 17-55mm F2.8 (DX lens) 50mm f1.4 (FX) 90mm f2.8 Tamron Macro (FX) 70-200mm f2.8 VR1 (FX) The only lens that...
Hi: I finally upgraded by D300 to a D610. I have a beautiful 105 f2.8D lens (from F100 days) that I want to use with this camera. When I mount the lens it shows the maximum aperture at f3.2 when I am focused at infinity and at f5 when I am focused up close. Is that expected? Why dont I see an F2.8 with my lens as I should.
