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?

I think the supplied one looks a bit lame so I just took it off. It looks ugly & decreases contrast when reviewing. I'm actually glad Nikon seem to have done away with them now, looking at the D810. Are there any of those film strips you can use instead, as an alternative? --Steve

The dpreview review of the D810 says that comparing the D800 to D810 images, it is like a veil has been removed. Pretty dramatic words. For those of you who have done it, or decided not to, do you agree?

I have a small question when looking at DXOmark results for the 500mm F4 lens. D800 d7100 D800E When comparing these results for sharpness we see: D800: 16 pMP => 44.4% of its 36 MP => This would mean if we cropped to DX it would result in 7MP D7100: 9 MP => 37.5% of its 24 MP We know it has no AA filter and this should result in a higher MP than D800 but when compared, having 1.5x more MP in the DX area only results in 2MP more! D800E: 22 MP =>61% of its 36 MP => this would mean if we...

I usually rent out FX Bodies for Wedding events but now looking forward to have one of my own. What kept me from buying D800 and D600 in the past were rumors and internet reviews about Dust and oil stains in 600/800 bodies. Still was a bit hesitant going for them models even after their upgrades like 610/810 or what ever. Just wanted to know, that are there any reported issues of stains and spots in this new Nikon D750 FX body till now being reported or heard about ?? Cause I would really...

Hi Guys, Wondering what focussing mode people are using for portraits.  I'm having a lot of soft focussing issues with D800 and 24-70.  Some seem super sharp, others are soft (i.e. it doesn't seem to have focussed on anything at all). I usually shoot in AF-S, focus on the eye and reframe.  I have heard some are using AF-C. Any thoughts? Thanks and advance, Ben.

If the sensor in the just announced G7 1" sensor is the same as the start-of-the-art 1" BSI in the RX100-3, I feel that increased the odds for Canon using a variant of the stellar Exmor 36 mpix full-frame in the 5d4 or 6d2. Or not? Caveat: it is still speculation that Sony 1" BSI being used in G7. Am I the only one who really, really hopes Canon takes the same "swallow their pride and losing face" attitude to help speed a competitive 5d4 & 6d2 to market? FWIW:I wasn't surprised that Sony sold...

I feel 6.5 frames a second is not fast enough for sports ..and there no grip that provides  faster frames per second to get 8 like the Nikon D700 ..nor d750 does not provide DX mode in the  D750 to get more frames per second to compete against Canon 7D Mark2 give 10 frames a second I suppose Nikon  D400 DX to provide 10 or 11 frames a second to compete against Canon 7D Mark2 so if you want full frame and faster frames a second then purchase  both bodies d750 and d400 this what Nikon wants...

Thinking of buying 70-200 f/4. Only venue I regularly need that focal range are my kids (theater/stage/sports) events, otherwise I prefer shorter focal lengths. I have D800 with 14-24, 24-70, 85 1.4 and sigmas 35 1.4. Not sure does it justify the cost for relatively low usage, but the reason I'm considering it is I fond a seller that would give it for 1000 euros. Please share your experience and sway me for or against.
