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.  Agnipankh

I have a Nikon D5000 and now I realize what a mistake that was, because AF lenses are so expensive that have only managed to buy a 35mm so far. I should have bought a DSLR with AF motor in the body. Now I want to remedy that.I have a lovely Tokina 100 F2.8 manual focus lens and the 3 Nikkor AF/S lenses (18-55, 55-200, 35). I want a body that can use all 4 lenses, that will also give me light metering and auto focusing with the Tokina lens. I was looking at the Nikon D300, but it only uses CF...

Hello, I was curious about one thing? I still have my old 7D and it had a feel that I just loved. I haven’t had a chance hold the 77 /77II, so how does the camera feel compared to the old 7D? Even my D300 doesn’t feel as nice in my hands as the 7D did, weight and all. A good tool also has to also feel right.

I have an interesting opportunity in front of me. A local camera shop has a pristine D300 with approximately 40m actuations for sale. I recently picked up a very nice D7000 from the same shop. I currently have a D200 and a D80 and obviously wouldn't need 4 DSLR's. I'm thinking of getting the D300 and selling the D80 and D200 leaving me with the D7000 and a D300. The pictures I mostly shoot are family and vacation shots. Would the D300 be worth sacrificing the other two to be used with the D7000?

I am wondering if anyone has tested this combo and what the high iso output looks like compared to other Nikon cameras. I am using it on a D300 now and am finding that I need to shoot at a pretty high iso and shutter speed to get decent results, which have a fair amount of noise. I am getting a little shaky in my old age. I am fine with the 12 mp output as I am only shooting for my personal use.  Thanks, Joe
