Sorry if this is the wrong forum. I've been a reasonably happy Canon DSLR owner for some years, but getting impatient on Canon having a full-frame to match the Sony full-frame sensors in the A7r and D800 series. According to DxoMark, the highly rated Samyang 14mm is significantly sharper on the D800e than my Canon 6d. I own the Samyang 14mm for Canon and have been impressed. It's one of my favorite lenses. The differences are almost hard to believe. Real world, what can I expect as far as...

I am considering the D810. I will use it primarily for still shots. However, I do plan to try my hand at video since it will be available. My computer is 2.7 GHz Intel Core i5; 16 GB ram; several 2 TB external drives; OS 10.9.4;  iMovie; PS CC 2014 Is this good enough to edit D800 video? (asking present D800 owners)

I’m thinking of ‘trading’ my D800 for either a D810 or waiting for the D7100 replacement. I know at first read, this may seem like a strange choice, but here’s my situation. My shoot primarily events and lifestyle subjects and my bread and butter camera is my D4. I bought the D800 to be a second body. At some events, I prefer to shoot two cameras and I needed to have a backup anyway. I’d hoped to also use the D800 as an occasional DX camera, shooting smaller DX lenses for travel/walkaround...

Off to Namibia and Botswana with my trusty D800 for a few weeks soon. Also taking a D7000 as backup. Have my telephoto options sorted (70mm upwards) but I can't make up my mind on my normal and wide angle options. Can't afford any new gear at this point, so from my existing kit, I'm thinking one of the following combinations: 1. Nikon 14-24mm + Nikon 50mm 2. Nikon 24-120mm + Samyang 14mm Conscious of weight and bag space, so don't really want to take both the zooms if I can help it. I guess...

I'm non-pro, obviously, and have a D800E which I'm slowly growing into - I come from having fallen for photography with the GF1 and M43rds. Once I started to bump up against the (then) limits of the system I then took the somewhat nuts step of going hardcore FF with the D800E... Right now, I have the Nikon 50mm 1.8, Nikon 85mm 1.8 and Sigma 35mm. I chose primes partly to not overwhelm myself with all the options at once, partly for weight, partly for quality/cost. I've tended to concentrate...

I apologize if this is a repeat question, but I ran a search and didn't see anything i liked. Feel free to point me to another thread if you know of one. As per the title, I have a D800 and i'm looking for a macro lens, some requirements below: -I'd like to keep the price below $1k but an go higher if it's worth it... I'll be primarily using it for detail shots at weddings (ie ring shots) -I'm currently using a Nikon 50mm f/1.2 with macro filters... I know almost nothing about macro...

Up until quite recently I used to shoot NEF RAW with auto white balance, but now I am changing the WB settings in camera. However when I import into LR and look in the Library or Develop tabs, the only information I have on what the WB setting I used in camera was, is 'As Shot' and the actual temperature (which seems to be 5050 for 'Sunny' in camera setting, for example). Is there a way of seeing in LR what WB setting I used in camera please? I'll admit in advance that this particular area of...
