Hello. Does anybody have the means to very accurately (microns) measure the registration distances present in some of the modern Nikon DSLRs? Of most interest to me are the D800(E) and the D810 and Df. My reason for asking is thus: I have a few manual focus lenses which have hard infinity stops and it is standard for the infinity stops to go just a gnat's cock past infinity to accommodate temperature driven dimensional changes (expansion/contraction) and possibly atmospheric conditions (not...

In the UK October is the time the salmon go up river (or will be when we get some rain to fill the rivers a bit - didn't think I'd be saying not enough rain in the UK!). Last year I used a D800 with 70-200 f/2.8 lens on a tripod, lens set at between 100mm and 135mm F/4 and speed around 1/500 second (ISO400). I will have had VR turned off. This year I have same lens but D810. I know I need a faster speed (at least 1/1000 sec) so will up the ISO to 800 or 1000. What autofocus setting do you...

Hi everybody, i have a question - Lets assume a DX camera has a sensor pixel pitch of 4.7 um (e.g. D7000). Lets say there's an FX camera with the same pixel pitch (e.g. D800). I'm assuming the sensor technology to be near enough i.e. not a huge gap like 10 years. Assume the subject occupies the same size on the sensor (e.g. 1 cm). The FX image will have a wider field of view - that's ok. Assuming its low light so a high ISO is used (e.g. 3200), will the FX image be less noisy ? If so, why...

Getting into portraiture and I was wondering what is the best way to focus on the eyes and still be able to react quickly to capture expressions. Currently, I use single point focus and gain focus on the eye, recompose and shoot.  While that gets good focus, the time require to do this means that I miss some good expressions, particularly with children or when the subject's head moves around some, even though they may be sitting in the same place.  What approach do you take to ensure you have...

2 days ago I noticed a dark shadowing on some images I took. The first  first 40 or so were fine but the remaining 60+ all had the issue. I barely noticed it and thought maybe I had petal hood off by 90° or it was my visor brim (in hindsight not possible). D 800 35 1.4 Art. Note dark shading on top  Yesterday I took some more images w/ a different lens. The shadowing was much more obvious, possibly due to different focal length or aperture. I could easily see it when reviewing w LCD. D800...

I've had D750 for three days. A very marvelous camera! But, I managed to loose the eyecup DK-21. I've have the same problem with my Olympus OMD EM5, its almous eats them. With D800 this is not a problem, becouse its a much better construction. The question: how one can secure the eyecup from not getting loose? Verkku

Does anybody have any experience using this lens in DX mode on full frame?  I have a chance to pick one up at a great price and am considering using it on my D800 for a walk around lens in DX mode.  I have used several DX lenses in DX mode and haven't seen any degradation, only issue I have seen on the ones I have tried is the lower resolution (24 MP vs. 36 MP Max).  Any issues?
