  • Replied in Yes...
    I know, not a clear response. I actually have a lot of experience with the d5100, and the 16-85 and the 16-80. In fact of all the 5xxx series I owned, the 5100 may have been my favorite, although ...
  • Replied in Thank you
    Just the kind of information and impression I was hoping to get.
  • Replied in Actually...
    My goal is to drive some older lens that were stellar with film such as the 180/2.8. They were also spectacular through my D2x/D200 Nikon period, were pretty darn good through the D3, but started ...
  • Replied in Thanks Bill
    Needless to say, I’d reviewed your site on the issue before starting the thread.  I’ll also add that your efforts are invaluable.  As I hope I’ve been clear on, the numbers are not always the full ...
  • Replied in Thanks all
    The reports tend to focus on the numeric differences in the sensor, or differences in the body - neither of which really is the question I’m interested in. I can read the specifications, and ...
  • Created discussion thread D7200 vs. D7500 - only IQ?
    Putting aside all other issues, which camera has better image quality?  Looked at all the typical reference material on sensor performance, and there seem to be some pros in both directions. From ...
  • None inexpensive. Would recommend 70-200 2.8 VRi used or refurb - works great on DX sensor.  Perhaps same used/refurb route with 70-200 4.0.  Or go with new Tamron 70-200.  Again, none cheap, but ...
  • Quality over ‘reach’.  You will not regret spending the extra $200 to get the 16-80.  A ff equivalent of 24-120, a great range for kids activities, and more light for indoor activities. You bought ...
  • Replied in Not exactly,
    It’s only the latest “exactly” what you were searching for, originally the “exactly” search was for glass... Having said that, I do now think you are on the right approach with body first, and you ...
  • Instead of jumping from thread to thread and forum to forum, and getting feedback from a variety of sources you know nothing about... just a thought buy the 7200
  • then figure out your glass. IMO, would be a huge mistake to buy another midquality dx lens. Will be a lot better with shorter, better glass, than longer lesser glass. Buy the 7200, keep your 18-55, ...
  • Education is a progressive thing, and you have a lot more information than when you started your threads a week ago. Having said that, based on your initial thread, not this one, and the ...
  • Just realized you are in Norway. For me, since ff became an option, dx has been a travel format only,, albeit one I am very pleased with. I suspect that the 5500 I now have will be the last for a ...
  • Do read Thom Hogan’s review of the 16-80, will likely be of value to you.  Also search for Steve Bingham posts on this website regarding the 16-80, and visit his website. again, good luck!
  • I still have both, and at several times have done direct comparisons between the two, as I keep hoping that somehow the16-85 which I love so much will miraculously close the gap. Not yet. I have ...
  • Huge gain possible, certainly should be no worse. With digital, as opposed to film, you are the lab. Start with Nikon software, load your nef files, they will initaily look very similar to the ...
  • Replied in Two steps...
    First get the 5500 or 5600, either a worthy upgrade - and then evaluate your lens needs. And second, shoot raw and process your images, at least initially, through Nikon free software - View or ...
  • Replied in Amazing...
    Almost without exception, every response was to upgrade your glass, not the camera body... good luck! ps. Although I didn’t respond directly, as the other response was so overwhelming, as a ...
  • Clearly you’ve well documented the difference on your copy. Alternatives would be to get it serviced, trade it in on another d5500, or perhaps better yet a refurbished d7200. This assumes you want ...
  • 18-140 no match for the 16-xx nikons or the fuji. ??? VR works find on 16-80 / d5500 combo, at least on mine for the last couple of years... again, good luck! ps. surprised by shutter noise on your ...
