Over the years with the help of our friendly G.A.S. various cameras have passed through my hands. This has resulted in my current gear list including a 5D (original) with the 24-105 f4L and a Nikon D300s with a couple of lenses, 2 flashes, a grip and a remote release. To tell the truth I have no practical problem with my current setup, but I am starting to feel that perhaps it is time to "choose a side" and built a better setup before my D300s loses even more value.  So, in this respect I was...

I am currently using the "legendary" 35mm f1.8G with my D300s for some time now. I cannot say I have a problem per say but since it is my only lens I must admit I find it really limiting sometimes, especially for portrait work. So, I was thinking of selling it for the older Tamron 17-50 f2.8 (non-VC version) which is supposed to be excellent performance-wise. Indeed the speed difference is substantial but for what I mostly shoot which is portraits and travel perhaps I do not necessarily need...

I am no flashing expert but if I understand correctly REAR curtain flash and SLOW sync flash are 2 different things. If so, when I set my D300s on rear curtain flash (only) why does the SLOW also appear on top?

Basically the subject matter says it all. I found a great deal on an excellent SB-24 but I am somehow reluctant because I have read of various incompatibilities of older flashes with newer Nikon bodies. Any chance anyone has used the specific or at least a similar combo?

I have a D300s which can be setup as "Commander" in order to fire a compatible speedlight. I also have an older manual-only Yongnuo YN-465 which i usually fire using an older Yongnuo radio trigger mounted on the camera hotshoe. So, my question is this. If i buy a Yongnuo 560 III which can be used as a "slave", can i use the body to fire both speedlights at the same time? One by using the commander mode of the pop-up and the older manual one with the radio trigger mounted on the hotshoe?

Hi, first of all sorry for my English :)I have a question, what would be better to buy for wedding photoshooting? I have a choice to buy a new Fujifilm X-M1 kit or used Nikon D300s + 50mm 1.8D. I heard, that the high iso on Fuji is very impressive and great, but the autofocus system in AF-C mode is very bad, but the Nikon has poor ISO and gread autofocus system. what do you think?

I am thinking of buying a Lowepro Slingshot 102 AW since I need a small backpack for air travel and is the cheapest option available. I want to fit a D300s with a 70-210 f4 (yes the old one) attached on the main (bottom) compartment and a 5D with 24-105 f4L on the upper (accessories) compartment. Any idea if they fit? Many thanks in advance!

With a budget of 200-250 Eur which is about 250-320$ i need suggestions for my D300s to cover a range of about 18 to 200-300. I was thinking of going for the 55-200 + 18-105 both used of course. I know they overlap but I need a useable travel/walk around choice in case I can only bring one lens with me and the 18-55ish solutions are too short. It could be a 1 lens suggestion or 2 like above. Also I really don't mind considering older FF options especially for the telephoto range since they...

Has anyone here that has used the D300 or D300S replaced it with the D7100? I just ordered the D7100 from B & H Photo Video.  I feel like I have been waiting too long on Nikon. I have too many lens and other Nikon system goodies to move to another system.
