I've used a D700 for some time for wedding and other photography, and recently purchased a D750 as a replacement for my D300 second camera. The D750 is an amazing machine technically, but there's a frustrating downside: the amount of manual labour required to make the pictures look any good in post-processing. 99 times out of 100, Adobe's default take on the D700 RAW files is spot on, with very little adjustment necessary (Adobe Standard in Camera Calibration). The D750 RAW files are a...

What angle-of-view equivalent am I getting?  Looks like around 85-ish? Any advantages to that? Are the 55/1.2's soft edges out-of-view? Is my 55/1.2 wasted on DX? Would it be better on an FX sensor?

I am shooting it u/w and often in a low contrast situation.  I initially started using 52 points but missed some shots when I had a 60 macro mounted of a tiger shark coming at me.  The head was too smooth I think and it was moving.  Today I switched to single point with a Tokina 11-16 and it seemed to do better. Any recommendations as to single point verses some multiple setting. And also C vs S.  Will the camera hunt with C or hold the point. --It's a tough job living in Hawaii...

I just got a used Nikon Af-S II 2.8D 400mm. By all appearances it looks like new. I mounted it on a couple bodies yesterday, D300 & D800E and after reviewing a couple dozen tests shots I can see that something is not right. It does not appear to be hitting focus, anywhere for that matter. I can even see this in the viewfinder when zoomed a bit but on my 30" Apple display there is no doubt. I did a lens chart test to check for front & back focus which showed me that it does not appear to have...

Hello, My pattern has been to upgrade my DSLR every two model changes. I had (still have) a D300, skipped the D300S, bought a D7000, skipped the D7100. So now here is the D7200, which is reputed to be a noticeable upgrade from the D7100. I am trying to balance the improvements of the D7200 over my D7000 with the $1200 price tag of the new camera. So I ask: do you forum members who have made this upgrade feel like your money was well spent? Is there any kind of "Wow!" factor? I ask, partly...

IIRC Nikon claimed that the current generation cameras can AF with lenses which can't open wider than f/8, which is a nice plus for TC use with long telephotos. This implies that the older generation cameras would only AF up to f/5.6. I have some interest in the Sigma 150-600, and since I still use some older cameras and Sigma is only f/6.3 at the long end, the issue of AF is a big one for this lens. In the meantime, I'm coming across a review of this...

Hello everyone! I am stumped on this issue. Please see the 3 sample pictures. I have a Nikon D750 and an Alien Bee B800. I am triggering the AB with my on board D750 Flash set to Commander Mode and "--" Shooting RAW/Manual @1/125 @ F1.4 - ISO 64 (50 mm 1.4 Lens) Alien Bee @ 1/2 Power No Bracketing. No changes at all. These 3 pics were taken one right after another. The issue I am having is inconsistent results when taking the photograph. It looks as if the exposure is changing. My lighting in...

Does anyone know if the EH-5B AC adapter for the 810 has the same plug in end that the discontinued EH-5A had (used with the D300).  It'd save me the expense of getting the newer model if the 5A fits the 810 plus in.  Thanks in advance.

Hi all After the death of my D300 workhorse and issues with my D7000, I am at the stage where I am considering coming over to the dark side. 5 years ago I would have seen it to be blasphemy however with Nikon still not releasing a D300 successor, a camera with professional build quality, I am looking at either the 7d mk2, the original 7d, or perhaps a used full frame 5d mk2. I work as a High school teacher, teaching photography and I do photos for the school newspaper. I sometime do event...

Hi everyone, This is my first post :) Nice to 'meet' you all. I have a Nikon D300, which I love and is still going strong even after getting soaked doing Cave of the Winds in Niagara! Lovely camera. I'm looking to buy a super-telephoto lens - I had been leaning towards the Sigma 50-500mm F4.5-6.3 as I'd read good things about it over the 150-500mm version. However, I've just read a review of the Tamron SP 150-600mm F/5-6.3 and now I'm a bit unsure.  My Dad loved Tamron lenses but I had two...
