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...

1) What would D8** owners recommend as the minimum requirements regarding the computer system needed to process the huge 36mp files? I'm looking at buying either the D750 or D810 and if a new PC is required AS WELL as a new camera, it could well be a deal breaker for the D810. I only have 8gb ram and an AMD quad core processor at the moment :o( I've got a 1tb HD and a 1/2tb desktop drive, but I'm not too bothered about storage capacity as storage has become so inexpensive just lately. 2)...

Just acquired an ex+ copy of the d3x. I hope it's a good one.  I'd like to have a cf card in hand when I arrives. One review claimed the reviewer used a Lexar 300 card but didn't mention what capacity. According to the Nikon manual this camera will only use an 8 gig card. Has anyone used a bigger or faster card. Thanks for any input. Bearsmom

Sorry if this has been asked before. I'm asking for my nephew, who's looking to upgrade from a point & shoot. (Full disclosure: I shoot Pentax, K3 to be exact, but I do like Nikon stuff.) He wants to do wildlife/birding with it; he's a marine biology major at school Galveston. I suggested a third-party lens, e.g., the Sigma 150-500 or the Tamron 150-600, for the long stuff. For the body, I suggested a more entry-level camera, e.g., the D5500, D5300, or even D5200. (I guess the D5xxx series...

I know next to nothing about digital imaging, so please forgive me if this is common knowledge among digital shooters. I only need 6 megapixels for everything I do, however I also require high-ISO sensitivity. Say that I buy a D3X, or any 24 megapixel camera for that matter. Since the D3X can set its JPG resolution to 6 megapixels, do I : Obtain increased dynamic range? If so, by how many stops? Obtain increased high-ISO noise performance? If so, by how many stops? Would a 6 megapixel image...

Hi, I am looking to get an upgrade over my current Nokia Lumia 920's camera.

Has anyone experienced a problem using their D3X in the "Trap Focus" mode, such that, the camera will only take a single "trap focused" shot, and then not repeat; or such that when set to "Continuous Shutter" in "Trap Focus" mode, it continues to take successive shots after the object has left the focal plane?Would appreciate any feedback from D3X users. Thanks.

Hi Everyone! Looking for suggestions. I have an old D2X that's on it's last legs. I want to upgrade the camera and downgrade the weight, but still get the best quality as I can. I'm planning a RTW trip next year and want something as close to professional grade, but I'm not willing to lug the weight around (I'll be carrying 1 backpack for the whole time). I've been eyeing the 7100. Thoughts on this or suggestions on others? My plans will be to sell my pictures, so looking for a camera that...
