I have used Nikon dSLRs since 2005, still using a D90. All the SLR’s that I know have an In-focus indicator, a LED that lights up when the AF system reaches a ‘focus’. This is an important feature because it also works with manual focusing and even with older AIS lenses that do not support any AF at all. BUT: why is it only in the viewfinder and not on the backside LCD panel? I use the D90 on a copy stand with a macro lens to digitize negatives. Looking through the viewfinder is awkward when...

Just a quick question: I've been using the 18-105 for years on my D90, but will probably upgrade the body in the next 6 months or so. I like the lens, but 18mm is not its strongest point. There are alot of well priced (and most probably barely used) second hand 18-140 lenses around. Would this be a worth while upgrade? Is the 18-140 better than the 18-105 at 18mm, especially in the corners? Curious to hear what everyone thinks and if it's worth the changeover. Best Regards, Jason

Hello Everyone, Newbie here. I have an old D90 + 18/105 mm. I'm planning to buy a AmScope 4x 160/0.17 objective and I have some questions.  - Will this objective work in front of 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6 or do I need some tube extensions? - It's my understand that I need to have the object  around 160 mm from the objective for accurate focus. Is that correct?  Thank you 🙂

I just got an old D90 body and I am looking for an inexpensive lens to put on it. It will be used mostly for taking photos of my kids (portraits, snapshots during hikes, etc). No landscapes and no interior shots so I am thinking something like 28-80 from the film days would be better for me than the 18-55 kit lens. Smaller size is also what I am looking for. I know that the kit lens is pretty decent but anything else that's lets say sub-$200 that's used and would be better?

The title says it all! I saw the 2 year old post by Darren01274, but thought I'd ask anyway. Originally I was going for a LX100 II as an upgrade from a Stylus 1, mostly for lower light conditions....then I went to talk in a shop specialising i Fuji...Damn they lured me back into the SLR world from which I stepped away after selling our D90+Kit lens+ 50mm 1.8 mainly for bulkiness.... Anyway, first I was considering a XT30 after having seen it, then I started looking up 2nd hand (something I...

I was taking some shots at my Daughter's soccer game and got tired of playing with settings in manual to compensate for the differing lighting on the sideline vs. the field so I put my camera in Aperture Priority. I realized that almost every picture I took in this mode was overexposing the image - especially when the sun was on the players or there was any white in the background of the image (e.g. goal posts). I've used this mode on my old D90 and it always did a great job and I never had...

I paired my AF-S Nikkor ED 300mm f/2.8D II IF lens (older model) with the Nikon TC-20E III 2X AF-S and mounted it on my Nikon D750. Manual focus works but autofocus does not work. Autofocus works perfectly when I mount the lens plus teleconverter on my Nikon D90 camera. According to the Nikon compatibility chart autofocus should work with the Nikon D750. Does anyone know why the autofocus isn't working on the D750? I think there may be a setting I am not aware of when using the teleconverter...

Looking into getting a new camera for street photography, coming from years with a Panasonic LX100 (and before that a G1), and before that a Nikon D90 with 17-50mm zoom. I tend to shoot most in the 28-35mm range so I'm most considering a fast prime in that range. I was considering a Panasonic G9 and either using my old Sigma 19/2.8 (which is okay but nothing fantastic) or getting the Panasonic-Leica 15mm f/1.7 lens. Body only would be $1200 (and the lens would be $550). I see that the T-T2...

I know that there is another similar thread but is inactive. I found a brand new 16-80 for 550 euros and I am considering replacing my old 18-200 which I still love but I feel it has started showing ageing signs on my D7200. It might still be good for lower resolution bodies such as D90 and D7000 but it seems soft for D7200s 24mpx sensor. However I was checking the exifs from the images I 've shot and I have three scenarios: 30% shot on the wide angle 30% shot above 135mm and the rest...

I can set bbf on a D90 ok, but how do I disable the shutter button from also focusing?. There does not seem to be an AF on/off option within the menu.  Thank you.
