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.

I posted FoCal Aperture Sharpness Test Results for the Sigma 50mm f1.4 and Sigma 85mm f1.4 (both Nikon mount) in the Third Party Lens Talk forum, but didn't get any replies or feedback. I even included pretty charts, pictures, and graphs too! I'm trying to figure out if the test results are to be expected or not. I'm relatively new to photography and lens optics, so I'm not sure.  The test results don't seem to square with what I've seen on DXOMark and other review sites.  I'm also aware that...

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...

I am doing lens cal using FoCal software. To calculate the usable distance I need to know the percentage of the total sensor that the metering dot in the center occupies. Equations are described here: http://www.reikan.co.uk/focalweb/index.php/online-tools/test-distance-target-size-calculator/target-distance-size-information/ Question: what is the value for "s is the spot metering area as a percentage of the image area' on D800? Thanks ahead --1. D800 is the first camera with resolution so...

I thought I was crazy, but sure enough bottom left and top right are both very blurry, the center is also more blurry than it should be top and bottom.  I have a D800 and usually use the AF-S 24 - 120mm 1:4G ED lens. Now it was dropped, the strap just let go and it fell 1.5 feet to a concrete surface. On the pucker scale it was definitely a 10. There is no overt damage, but it seems like there are blurry spots or extra blur around the outside. I know that the center is the sharpest, but I'm...

Hi guysfirst question here, I hope I'm in the right place, otherwise I'm sorry for the mistake :DI'm going straight to the point, I want to change my camera body and finally it's time. I've got a lot of good lenses so high quality sensor is not a problem, I want a camera for great stills(i shoot mostly fashion and portrait) and I need to make also video, of course with steadycam, slider, follow focus etcI don't have a huge budget so at the moment I can go and buy a D800, but I have to wait a...

I am often coming across the experience feedback that D800/e focuses faster and more accurately than the D7100, referring to motorsports, aviation photography. Also users report that besides the increased number of keepers due to AF performance, detail and overall IQ is also superior comparing to 7100 despite the larger estate of the target in the d7100 image (which in worst case offers the possibility of scaling down to D800 levels of pixels estate thus improve overall apperance) If you have...

Hi all, I know there’s a ton of threads similar to this one but since every photographer’s needs are a bit different and I don’t quite yet trust my ability to fully apply the available information, I decided to post this question with detailed description of my own requirements. So, straight to the point: I’m going to need a sturdy set of tripod legs, a quality ball head and possibly an L-bracket to get the most out of the stunning IQ of the D800 I’m planning to buy in the near future. I have...

Do any of you use a walk around general purpose lens with the D800/E/810 and what would it be?. Any recommendations? Input is greatly appreciated. TIA

Hello, using my D800 and recently acquired 105mm f/2.8 VR macro lens for some non-macro shooting (focal distance about 5m), I realized that pictures taken at f/2.8 are significantly darker (underexposed) than photos of the same subject-matter taken at smaller apertures. This happened both in matrix and spot metering mode. From f/4 and down the exposure was pretty consistent. I have not noticed similar metering variation with any of my other lenses. Apart from the inconsistent metering, the...
