I recently purchased a Nikon D5300 with a Nikon 35mm f/1.8G AF-S DX Lens. When I zoom into a subject, the picture I take appears unzoomed. Can someone please let me know if I can take closeup shots with the lens or do I need to buy a different lens Thanks Hannah

Is it past practice or likely that a manufacturer, specifically Nikon, would offer discounts on cameras, specifically D7100, during or shortly after Photokina? STOP reading here if you would like to answer the question. The following is anecdotal and contains no further questions, mearly a background on my reason for asking. You nave been warned. So, I have weathered a long, 10-year research project (read: I finally have a D-SLR penciled into the budget) and while the mythical D400 is my...

Hello everyone,   I'm very new to this forum and this is my first post, I hope u guys will help me, because many of you are very senior and experts on photography and DSLR cameras. a month ago, I bought a Nikon D5300 with kit lens 18-55mm, and this is my very first DSLR camera, I have never used any DSLR before, only had Canon A710IS point and shoot camera. just after few days of using my new Nikon D5300, I noticed that the pictures taken from viewfinder are not always accurate in focus, but...

Hi everyone, I upgraded to my first FX a couple of months ago in anticipation of our trip to Africa in August. Before that I'd been using a D90 for a few years. I bought the D610 after some comparisons with D800 vs D7100 vs D5300. I had such an amazing time with the D610 on that trip that I have come back wanting another FX. Now here's the crazy part, I'm just an enthusiast and not a pro. However, we don't have kids so we spend the back to school money on ourselves. :) The couple of things...

Hey guys, I am relatively new to photography and have become obsessed with our solar system. I have come to the conclusion that I would like to invest in a lens or telescope (is it possible to hook a camera up to a telescope?) to photograph the stars and planets. I have a nikon D5300.  I would like you to suggest the best options for me to photograph the planets in the price range of: 0-350$ 350-700$ 0-1000$ I don't mind if its second hand. I really just want to be able to see them for my...

Hello everybody and thanks in advance. I am at a cross road basically at the moment and i cant decide whether to get the Nikon D5300 or the Canon 700d (T5i).  I am an absolute beginner, but still want the best camera i can afford (i am at university) but i still want something i can grow with and learn. I wont be upgrading the glass for a while and i will be sticking with kit glass for probably 6 months or so. (18-140mm on the Nikon, and 18-55, 55-200 i think it is on the Canon). Picture...

I know it doesn't have the focus motor built in, but which lenses exactly will that affect? Will lenses like a Sigma 70mm F2.8 or the Nikon 35 F1.8DX be fully functional? I later plan to buy the Tamron 70-200. Do all these have a focus motor inside, or is it MF only? Another question I have is, does the 5300 have AF adjust in case I see BF/FF? --"Run to the light, Carol Anne. Run as fast as you can!"

Please could anyone tell me if they are using a Nikon AF-S 70-300mm F/4.5-5.6G VR lens on a Nikon D5300. I have just purchased a D5300 with a Nikon 18-140mm kit lens but would like a longer zoom lens. I have read various tests on this lens but I am unsure whether the optical quality is good enough for the resolution of the camera. As I will be submitting pictures to a picture library the optical quality needs to be high. Hopefully in about three years time, funds permitting I would like to...

I use a D90 and am considering a D7100 or D5300 or D610. If I understand things correctly, there is no advantage at all, for my use (noise in low light is not a concern to me), of a D610 over the two DX choices. The disadvantages of the D610 include a narrower depth of field (all things being equal), higher cost for camera, higher cost for lenses, more weight and larger size. Surely, I must be overlooking or wrong about something given the increasing popularity of full frame. Where am I wrong...
