Hi, I have pre-ordered a Sony A7R II with the expectations of being able to try lenses from multiple manufacturers as well of having a smaller camera for travel. I already own a great Nikon D800E which produces stunning results with a little help from me. So far after reviewing the Sony lenses and I have not been "Blown Away" with what is being offered, the newest Sony road map for lenses is a little vague on what is coming next. There is the Batis lenses, Loxia and a 1.8/55 and 2/35 primes...

Will be taking my first trip to Hawaii in mid-August. I'll be bringing my Nikon D800E.  Instead of bringing a ton of my lenses, I was thinking of renting lenses for a week. I'm not sure if this is a good idea or not.  Anyone rent on the Big Island of Hawaii and/or Oahu?  Suggestions where to rent appreciated.  What lenses do you think would be appropriate for this trip?  I'll be on the big island for 5 days followed by 4 days on Oahu.  Thanks in advance for any suggestions and info.

The D4 has a setting for "Store points by orientation". Is there anything similar for the D800e? If not, is there a way for me to jump between 2 focus points instead of traversing through all the focus points? --Nikon D800e

For Photoshop .RAW files, the size calculation comes out exactly as expected: Xres * Yres * channels * quanta bytes/channel === file size 1193 * 861 * 3(RGB) * 2B/color = 6163038 I:\br9\245527>lsr -s sx-2015.0321-245527.1193x861.rawsx-2015.0321-245527.1193x861.raw 6163038 << Exact match D800E "Raw" .NEF files are supposed to have 14 bits per channel and 7424x4924 XY resolution and RGBG data with Bayer buffering. Doing the math: 7424 * 4924 * 14bit/channel * 1 byte/8 bits * 4 channels =...

Has anyone out there used a sigma 300mm F2.8 EX APO DG lens on a D800E? Finding it hard to get a review. Any info much appreciated. Cheers

Has anyone else had this problem with the textured grip material peeling off the body? And if so what did you do to fix it (besides tape)? The camera is about two year’s old and used every day and I don’t have a spare I want to use for my current street work commission while I send it into Nikon for a month or more, so I’ll likely carefully glue it down. I has a similar problem with my Nikon F3-T in the 1980's but this material is much thicker and likely easier to glue down. I’m sure that...

I'm shooting with a D800e and using 3 remote SB-800s and the built in flash as the commander. I have 2 flashes on channel A and 1 on channel B.  A is set to manual at 1/20, B is set to manual at 1/4.  The single flash is not pointed at the drops, but I'm getting some overflow. The problem I'm having is that the single flash is a longer duration and giving me a trailing light when I don't want it.  I'm set for rear curtain sync, so I'm guessing this is the issue. This makes my drops look...

Could use a bit of advice here. So I was showing off some of my 13 x 19 prints to a lady I met at Barnes & Noble when she decided to call her daughter to stop by and check out my work. The daughter came, checked out my work, and found a print she really liked. Problem is she wants the print to be at least 3 feet wide.  Now being that I shoot in RAW with a D800E, with an uncropped image I can get a size of about 20 x 30 inches without upsizing. That said, this particular image gives me a...

Is it possible to focus wide open in the D800E live view regardless of the selected aperture?

If I set the exposure preview off and activate live view while the lens is wide open and change the aperture in live view, what is the visible depth of filed? Is it DOF corresponding to the wide open aperture or the one chosen in live view? In live view, I'd like to focus wide open regardless of selected aperture. I know that this can be done in the D600/610 but I do not know if it is possible in D800/E.
