Hello all. I am a newcomer to DSLR and am struggling with the basics of my Nikon D5300. Specifically, I cannot work out how to use a manual focus lens. Some websites say "change setting on camera to manual focus"... but how? I have gone through the menu and can't find it anywhere. I am using an Opteka lens, and the resulting photos are completely black. Guess my knowledge is worse than I thought. Any advice would be very welcome. Thank you.

I've noticed lately that there's significant lag between when I press the shutter button on my D5300 and when the photo actually takes and sometimes the photo simply doesn't take. I've verified that the AF lock light is on and not blinking and I don't see the problem when I switch to full-manual focus. I just did a few tests and it happened on my 50mm 1.8G lens. The other thing I noticed was that I'm getting a "lighting is poor, flash recommended" warning even though I'm outdoors in sunny...
I bought a refurb 50mm 1.8G about 8 months ago to go along with my D5300 and have started to notice that the focus is not nearly as consistent as I expected. At first I figured this was just because I wasn't used to the shallow DoF but sometimes the focus is off even at slower f-stops such as f4 or even f7.1. Can someone help let me know if this behavior is normal or if there could be something wrong with the camera/lens? I took these test shots on a tripod in daylight and also included the...
