  • I use the 24-200 when I'm Travelling. Often this is outdoors which means that the limited maximum aperture is not a problem. Even in low light it works very well. I just up the ISO (my Z5 goes up ...
  • Normally I open DPReview every morning to see if there's any news. That won't be possible soon. I guess I'm going to have keep an eye on the official Nikon news site here: News | Nikon About Us It ...
  • Damn. I'm terribly sorry about that, especially for all the staff.

    You don't by any chance have another site in mind that we could go to?

  • Replied in 24-200 + 40mm
    For Travel I use the 24-200 most of the time. In low light, walking around cities at night, I change to the 40mm f2. It's light, small and has excellent image quality. I might add the 28mm f2.8 or ...
  • Replied in Canon FD
    At the end of the 1990's I was building myself a nice little CANON FD system with a couple of bodies and a few lenses. Then along came the EOS system with no compatability at all. I had to start again
  • Replied in @Mods
    It's not about mirrorless vs DSLR's. The poster is clearly concerned by the cost and long-term usefulness of his gear. This comes at a particularly interesting time when Nikon F gear is starting ...
  • The D780 is a very capable camera which does everything well. You could even look at the D750 which was also very good. I think that we are about to see a LOT of good F gear appear on the second ...
  • Replied in Enjoy the wait
    I've been shooting Nikon for 25 years. They always make us wait for a groundbreaking product until it's ready. And then it surpasses our expectations. And then there is a huge waiting list. I'm ...
  • Current Smartphones do a wonderful job in producing JPG images out-of-camera. They apply all the techniques that "real" photographers do with their RAW files if they have the time+skills but the ...
  • I sold my D850 two months ago and this year I'm just going to use my Z5. I had the perfect lineup with the D850 and all its lenses. Unfortunately I still have a stiff arm from using the 200-500 to ...
  • Right now I'm getting ready for a trip to Australia then I want to buy the "Z8" by the end of the year so that I can get back to some serious landscapes for 2024. I don't have any money for "nice ...
  • I've recently made a will. Everything will go to my niece and nephew. I've got a lot of photos. I always send my photos of models, local events and family to the people concerned so that's not a ...
  • I had a CANON R5 in my hands on Sunday. Same size as my Z5. It seemed rather - small. I remembered the stories about the R5 overheating - something that doesn't happen with the Z9 because it has a ...
  • One of my favourite subjects. This is what I'm taking for my next tour to Australia via Sicily, Thailand and Singapore: Samsonite SECURPAK 17L bag (700gms) Body pouch + id cards (300gms) Money ...
  • Last week I updated my Z5 with the new firmware. I just did a model shooting with my Z5. - Before starting I checked the battery (of course). 88% left - Shooting was 1122 images using the ...
  • Replied in 24-120 + 100-400
    I sold almost all of my F gear (including D850, 24-120, 28-300, 70-200 f4 and 200-500). I really injured myself trying to carry it around and use it. I now have just the 24-120 f4 Z, 24-200 Z and ...
  • I think that the f1.2 primes and other larger lenses should feel just fine on the Z9. The D850 had brilliant performance plus enough Mpix to do anything including lanscapes. And today - the Z9 is ...
  • When I sold my D850 plus a load of rather large lenses (70-200, 200-500) last month I said that it was too much to carry around now I'm over 70 and I wanted something smaller and lighter (100-400). ...
