The quick question to the point is:Why when I pair lens that worked perfectly with my old D5000, they don't work as efficient with the D80? Is it that the D80 requires Nikon branded lens ?The D80 works flawlessly with my Nikon Nifty 50 mm, good sharpness and best of all, good color retention, natural and pleasing.But when I pair my D80 with the sigma 17-70 lens, sigma 70-300 APO Macro lens and the 35mm Tokina macro lens, the D80 seems not to like any of those lens. But all these lens worked...

1) The D5000 is only (AF wise) compatible with AF-S and AF-I lenses, are there still plenty of these lenses? Would it be a disadvantage? 2. I have used a friends D90 and D3000 with a Sigma lens with an aperture ring, but the aperture could only be changed using the body, otherwise it wouldn't change. Is this just this lens, would it be true of other Sigma's. Would it be true of Nikon lenses with aperture rings?

I own a Nikon D7200 with a Nikon 18-105 f/3.5-5.6 VR and Nikon 35 mm f/1.8 lens. The 18-105 mm is from my old D5000 camera. After I bought the 35 mm prime lens it has been my primary lens. I almost never use the zoom lens except from situations where I really needs to zoom (> 70 mm). The 35 mm is sharper and has a much better aperture. Therefore I tend to mount this prims lens instead of my old 18-105 mm lens for allround situations. Family events (both in- and outdoor), kids, people...

Hello! I have a question that is driving me crazy. I just bought a 70D, my first Canon. I used to own Nikon Cameras, see, my D5000 used it self-timer lamp as an assitive light when there's really low light, helping you to light the subject a little in order to focus, now I'm wonderging if this 70D does the same.¿? I don't think I'm crazy but I'm pretty sure the frst time I used my 70D that self-timmer lamp worked as an assitive light. But now it doesn't ( maybe I'm crazy, I don't...

Hello all,      I own a Nikon D5000.  Besides the D90 having an internal motor for auto-focus lenses, does the D90 have any other advantages? Eat your vegetables. Yours, etc., Chesky Bevo

I'm looking for recommendations to replace my Sony S95. It's been a great camera for me, but I'm starting to find that there's quite a delay between shots and sometimes the color is funky.  I mainly use all auto settings.  I nearly always shoot the same picture 2-3 times since one seems to always blur or someone blinks. But the delay between each shot is painfully long (maybe 2-3 seconds). So after reading all about the RX100, I was sold on it. But I hate that the flash has to be pushed down...

I have been taking night pictures at our local dirt track for a few years now and have always used a f2.8 lens without flash.  However, I am limited as to where on the race track I can get a good shot due to lighting. Therefore I am in the market for a flash for my camera.  I need something that is simple to work with if at all possible. Thanks, Sandra

i recently brought out the old D5000 my parents bought a while back, charged it up and had a play around with it, and took it to the beach to get some shots. It worked fine, but on the way to work the next day, I managed to drop it on the road from my bag, a few scratches on the screen, but no other visible damage. When I got home, and checked it again, the entire top plate seems to not want to work. The on/off switch, one of the manual reset buttons, shutter release, etc. everything else...
