Hello all. I and a number of other experienced photographers have been plagued with AF issues when pairing the three f/1.4 high end primes with our D800(E) cameras. The issue being a gross unrepeatability of the AF system where even with good AF targets, the camera will focus unreliably with these three lenses, scattering results in front of and (perhaps more commonly) behind the intended point with complete abandon. Not everyone seems to suffer from this, but those that do will know what I...

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'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 understand when there was the D2x and the D300 why the differentiation between "pro" and "non-pro" DX cameras. But since 2010 there have been cameras like the D5200 and D7000 that were far better cameras than these "pro" DX cameras in almost every respect. I had the D2x, D3, D300 and all their predecessors, and now have the D800e and the D7100 cameras. The IQ from the D7100 surpasses all of these DX cameras by a wide margin. It produces images at ISO 3200 that compare well to those from...

Hello all. I posted this in another forum but I realized it belongs here. I decided to rent the Nikon 24mm f1.4G and the 35mm f1.4G to see which I would prefer for a wide to semi wide prime to use on my D800E. Deciding which one I want more is another discussion in itself (honestly I like them both for their merits). Anyway, for the price of either of these I could invest in a second smaller body, like the Fuji X-T1 with a somewhat equivalent field of view lens. It would cost more to go this...

I used D3S and now D4S, but a situation often bother me. I often shoot sport and animal theme using thumb pushing the AF-ON with 51 points 3D tracking AF-C, then firing the sutter release with my index finger when I find the right moment. My thumb won't leave the AF-ON even after continous shots, so I can keep tracking on the subject and wait another right moment. I suppost this to be a common usage of D3/D4 series, to seperate the autofocusing and shutter release in different buttons. Here...

Hi guys.I have a dimming problem using my Nikon 1.4xTCII (second version) with my D800E coupled with my 500mm f/4 VR lens.. The focus motor is working as I can see, hear and feel it hunting for acquisition but the aperture blades are fixed closed nearly. Once I take the TC off the camera and lens works perfectly.The lens is nearly new, only used the TC once with the body which is also nearly new.The teleconverter is only a couple of years old and hardly used so I don't think it's a wear...

I'm in the market for my first ND filter and thought I should start here. I'm using a D800E with a variety of lenses in landscape photos.  I live in Nebraska, so many of my shots involve a field and a sky with a straight line between the two.  I shoot a fair number of sunsets as well. Based on that, I'm thinking a hard edged graduated filter might be best. As I'm new to this and not sure if I'll be using this a lot, I don't want to spend to the upper limits, but I don't want a cheap piece of...

My D800E is a fantastic piece of technology.  I use it to capture great still images.  After owning the camera for almost a year, I decided to play, for the first time, with taking video.  Nice quality but I am noticing a grinding noise on the audio track when I am zooming the lens.  I assume it is picking up the motor noise of the lens when I change focal lengths.  I just want to confirm that this is normal.  I assume the way to handle this is by using an external mic.  Correct? Or is there...
