    I'm thinking I could rent a 1.4 teleconverter to turn my 80-400mm f4.5-5.6 into a 110-560mm f6.3-8 on the D5 and put it on the D500 for a total of 170-850mm! I did check, both the D5 and the D500 ...

    Just to clarify some things, my lenses are: 14-24mm 24-70mm 70-200mm 80-400mm 105mm macro 50mm f1.4 28-300mm

    I already have a 105mm f2.8 macro and on my dx that would be 157.5mm. Check out my gear list before you recommend lenses because I already have a lot of glass.

    One other thing to add is that I'm getting some money soon ($500?) so if there's a lens that would make sense to buy, I could do that.
  • Created question thread Trip to Alaska
    I am going to Alaska for nine days (not a cruise) but I was wondering what I should bring. What I like to do is pack a lot of lenses in a camera suitcase and leave them at the house and while I'm ...

  • Created discussion thread New camera for a friend
    My first camera was a 10 year old dslr with a kit lens and then I inherited a D5 and a D500 with a lot of pro glass and accessories. I have never had a middle ground camera. A couple days ago, a ...

    Thank you all for your advice. I found a five terrabyte hard drive and one of my friends has a 1 terrabyte NAS Synology that he hates (because he hates computers now, not because it's bad) that ...
  • My first camera was a Nikon d3000. It sells for 100 usd with kit lens and is an interchangable lens camera. It's ten years old though so I don't know how you feel about that. If you NEED a new ...
  • I have a Nikkor 80-400mm and I LOVE IT! It's a great lens and I'll shoot birds all day with that lens.
  • Replied in Memory cards
    Thank you all so much! I already am downloading my images to my computer as soon as I get back from shooting, but I have already had two internal drives fail on me and if this one fails, I would ...
  • Created question thread Memory cards
