  • thanks Crashton, yes the flip screen is really handy--when I remember to use it!  Like shooting those Indian Pipes, I was down on the forest floor and it would have been the perfect use of the ...
  • Created discussion thread J5 with Nikon 60mm micro
    I recently picked up a used 60mm specifically to use with the J5, as while I have the 105VR I find it too heavy and cumbersome to use with that camera. I tried the extension tube route with the ...
  • Lovely shot! That doesn't look like Maya, do you know who it is? Glad to see you are still using the 200-500 for the tiger parks. You might recall we discussed that awhile ago--I was a little ...
  • I often use it on safari. Sometimes for larger animals, or if I want some surroundings included, the 200-500 which I generally have on the D500 is just too much reach.
  • Created discussion thread Firmware update for J5
    I haven't seen this posted here yet so this is just a public service announcement :) There's a new firmware for the J5, although it seems very minor and only fixes one issue which I've never noticed. ...
  • Can't say that that has been a problem. The shutter seems quieter than the D810 and certainly than the D800 which I was using before for birds!
  • Hi Roy, wow this is an old thread brought back! I've had the 200-500 for some time now and I have to say I've rarely picked up my 500F4 since.  However...I am not planning to ditch the 500F4; ...
  • Thanks Gabar, I took a look at your fabulous Galapagos photos...fantastic set!! It brought back great memories (I'd love to return.) And it looks like the J1 did very well for you on the scenics. ...
  • Will do! I should have it by Thursday or Friday....bought it from Adorama with a free extra Nikon battery, which seemed like a good deal.
  • Thanks Sonyshine; in fact I do have those extension tubes but its just another thing to have to put on and take off (unless I am specifically going out for macro.) I was really intrigued by the ...
  • Created discussion thread Am I crazy? Just bought a J5
    So like many of you I was impatiently awaiting the DL which was really the EXACT camera I wanted (at least, according to the specs.)  My primary need is for a supplementary, pocket-able camera to ...
  • I am curious if you do go into Melville what they say and if they help you in any way. As noted in my very long prior thread, this has been an ongoing problem with me and many others...I now have ...
  • I believe the OP is referring to metering mode (spot, matrix, center, etc), not exposure mode (P, A, S, M). Exposure mode can be assigned, but not metering mode. I have the same complaint--I ...
  • I did reply on your thread, but to reiterate here...no joy :(  These three lenses are paperweights now. I'm probably not buying any more N1 lenses at this point--I am just too leery--and I hope the ...
  • As noted on my other thread, this seems to be a common issue with N1 lenses--at least common for me! I have THREE lenses now with this problem...the 11.5-27, the 10-30, and the 30-110.  I replaced ...
  • I was in Kanha last year and used the 200-400 on a D810 and the 70-200 on a D800. This was a perfect combo but if you want one lens, one body I think the 80-400 would be fine (you didn't say if ...
  • I'm afraid I have to disagree, at least in my experience so far, the geotagging has been reliable and very accurate. I was using it for several hours this morning shooting in my local park and ...
  • Replied in 10mm
    Thanks, good suggestion, I did consider the 10mm and looked for one but didn't see any available for a price I am willing to pay at this point. It does seem like a very nice lens and I might ...
  • Replied in Thanks Kevin!
    Thanks Kevin for these good suggestions. I really don't think its the heat or humidity because while its been hot and humid here, its really not THAT hot in my apartment (and this happened with ...
  • haha yes indeed, B&H actually has a used 10-30 available, and its a little tempting....but I am just leery now of buying more N1 lenses...seriously thinking of a DL when they are available and ...
