  • Replied in Nikon 16-85
    Exactly right. I used it for a couple of years for one specific purpose: landscapes at f8 on my D7200. For that task, it does a pretty nice job for the price. Any other use? Nope nope nope!
  • I no longer own either, but have owned both and used both on my D7200. My copy of the 18-140 was abysmal. It was soft no matter what the aperture/focal length was, and weirdly, it added a lot of ...
  • I honestly can't imagine upgrading to any other body for at least 5 years.
  • Yes. Don't use a bright continuous lighting source, whether manmade or natural. Strobes and speedlights are the way to go.
  • I used the 85mm f1.8G on my D7200 for a couple of years. While I was often pleased with the results, there were times that the Achilles heel of this lens reared its ugly head and ruined an ...
  • I don't know why some people think mirrorless cameras will magically improve their photography. Getting good at seeing light and composition will make a much larger difference with the images you ...
  • No, but I sell them and other people print them after downloading. Sometimes they even send me photos of my images framed and hanging in their homes, which is sort of fun to see. I am not limited ...
  • I don't have extra thousands of dollars just sitting around to spend on toys. Once a lens price starts getting in the range that one could buy a used car with, a warning bell goes off in my head, ...
  • Plenty of them have been shot at even lower resolutions than that. Why? Size and viewing distance. If you're looking at a 20-30-foot tall billboard image at 200-300 feet from your car, even a ...
  • Lots of good answers have already been given, but one I haven't seen is that with higher MP bodies, you can push the ISO a lot higher before noticing excessive graininess (unless you've cropped ...
  • Unusable how? Are they too grainy? Too blurred? You can move the Luminance slider to control how strong the NR is. For images shot at base ISO, I only use 5/100. For high ISO images that look ...
  • Replied in DxO Prime NR
    It's part of the DxO Photolab software. Slow to process, but it does a better job than anything else I've tried.
  • No. They're only tools. I don't get emotional about plastic boxes. The images are what matter to me.
  • Replied in No, they don't.
    While some people may eventually switch to a mirrorless Nikon body (especially if the lens adapter works perfectly) the model currently being offered is laughable for the price. Only 1 SD card ...
  • True of any lens in the world.
  • The 85mm f1.8G is quite light. You must be confusing it with a different lens, like the 1.4 version.
  • 1) Better low light performance 2) Wider FOV (can be better then APS-C for landscape, real estate, or indoor portraits) 3) Shallower DOF (better subject/background separation) That's where the ...
  • Well, that's pretty dumb of them. Portrait photographers don't get paid to take random snaps/candids. They get paid to produce flattering images of people with the best lighting, posing and facial ...
  • He specifically said portraits, not candids. Just going by what I was told.
  • You will get far nicer portrait images by investing in some lighting equipment than buying another lens. This could simply mean a speedlight that you bounce off the ceiling or use with an umbrella ...
