I have an opportunity to buy a used Nikkor AF 50 m 1:1.8 D and was wondering if it is worth it. I have a Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR and Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR for my D3100. I read that it makes for a very good portrait lens effectively a 70 something m with my ASP-C sensor but it is better than what i already have. I know I gain a stop with the F1.4 but the sharpness suffers at wide open. Do you think there is a good reason to buy it (the Nikkor AF 50 m...

Hi there, I have a Nikon N60 35mm film camera (unsure of what the lens is though the manual says use a CPU lens (except IX-Nikkor) with this camera, D-type AF lenses give you access to all available functions) and I was wondering if the lens I currently use would be compatible with the D3100? I'm trying to save money and buy the body of the  D3100 only and wanted to make sure before I purchased.

My D3100 is incredibly quiet even without the quiet mode. Does anyone know if the D3200 is equally quiet? Thank you.

We will be going on a trip to Grand Teton NP and Yellowstone NP and I am needing a lens upgrade for the photography I will be doing there. I don't have a lot of experience with lens purchases, so I would appreciate any advice you can offer. I have the Nikon D3100 and for lenses I have the 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 normal lens and the 50mm f/1.8. I love both of those, but I will be needing something different for zooming in on wildlife that may be far away and for landscape photos (mountains, meadows,...

My FZ70 doesn't support Bulb (8 sec. max) but my new D3100 does with a remote release. So i thought I'd pick one up. In your experience, do i want a wired or wireless one and are the less expensive units, like the ones in the link below OK for the casual user? The price between the two examples below is not a issue but the OEM prices might be. Wired shutter release...

Hello all, I am new to the DSLR world. I have been using a Nikon D3100 for the last year and am upgrading this week to a Nikon D3200. I am looking into buying a lens but since they are pretty pricey, I will probably not be buying more than one. What is your advice for getting a lens that is great for close-ups and for wide range pictures? I do not know much about the different types of lenses. Thanks, Monica

Hi Friends. I am using Nikon D3100, and have only a default lens (18-55). Now I am going to attend a marriage and I want to capture some beautiful moments. As all of us know, that the default lens does not provide depth of field etc. So can anybody suggest a lens, which I can use in marriages,  compatible with Nikon D 3100, and the price is less than 15K (may be more or less 2000). Request you to respond as early as possible. Marriage is there in 3 weeks and I need to buy and practice as...

Hi All, I'm sure this has been asked multiple times! I have a Nikon D3100, and a few lenses, which I take photos of my dogs and now my baby. It's getting to be too much to haul around when I go to the dog/kid park, considering that I have to haul around a diaper bag, two dogs and a baby.  Lately, I've been kicking around the idea of either getting a Nikon 1 J or V (especially since the new models are coming out), or the Panasonic Lumix GM1, but I keep hearing pro's and cons of each - Fast AF...
