  • While RBFresno makes a good point to fully consider your options -- even beyond the scope of a DSLR -- if making a wholesale system change, a few replies in this thread may help.
  • The two replies already provided in this thread are good.  I'll add a couple of fairly comprehensive reviews (from the same source/ different years): http://www.lenstip.com/139.25-article-Polarizin ...
  • Replied in EXIF + FIX
    Press and hold +/- button while rotating rear command dial counter-clockwise.  Observe top LCD display for changes. EXIF Camera Maker: NIKON CORPORATION Camera Model: NIKON D7100 Image Date: ...
  • I agree that CA is only one issue.  Nikon does handle it in-camera for Nikon lenses: I'm not sure how it's implemented such that it can address 3rd party lenses. That said, spherical aberration, ...
  • In my experience (wrt an oily diaphragm 35 f/2 AFD) -- and having seen a lot of assorted (recurring) problems reported in these forums over the years -- it's my sense that Nikon will only replace ...
  • If you're shooting through glass, it's not going to work well. Also, have you used AF-FT?
  • Replied in Simple question
    Please don't be offended.  Are you shooting through a window?
  • Yes, great test, Aisse. I agree Augustin. Particularly because of the small sensor and small pixel size, performance generally will be optimal either wide open or within a stop of wide open. Of ...
  • Replied in hmm
    When I mentioned a specific book , I replied to my earlier post , not the OP's. Anyway, I disagree about a Thom book for the OP. The OP is lacking technical skill and understanding. That calls for ...
  • RAW or not, the blown highlights are off the charts.  Much better is acheivable SOOC. The iPhone pic is miles better.  A little over the top processing: And a little more realistic (my preference): ...
  • Replied in PP vs SOOC
    As improved as that is, Mike, I think the main takeaway from these threads is that the OP needs to learn camera basics so that SOOC images are closer to what he/she envisions and is trying to ...
  • Get one good book about photography. This one is current and gets good reviews: The Beginner's Photography Guide, 2nd Edition Acquire a skill for a lifetime for $7.97 plus shipping! What more could ...
  • Replied in SSDS
    The funniest part of it all is that if you look not too deeply into the OP's posting history, he/she does seem to come by 'this' (whatever it is) honestly. 'SSDSmell' Probably deserves some ...
  • Replied in USB 3.0 vs 2
    Great find, Jeff! Thanks for sharing!  Cheers!
  • Replied in Grumpy Old Men
    Rather than further incite this collection of grumpy old men with questions in multiple threads that are so inane that it's mind-numbing -- and fantastic responses in the same threads that go ...
  • Well, I can't say I fault anyone for coming over to Nikon :-D but the image may be fine SOOC for a small print. With a little tweaking (some sharpening and some lens correction in PS), it's really ...
  • Replied in ?
    Having experience with this category of lens as well as having recently re-surveyed this particular landscape for my own needs, let me add to the discussion: If you didn't have an all-in-one lens ...
  • Replied in Cybersync
    Maybe it's a one-off due to recycling -- did you perhaps max FPS a couple of frames? -- perhaps or some other glitch. While your set-up seems fine re: sync speed, the manual does state (as a ...
  • http://www.birdforum.net/showthread.php?t=300509 Its long lens gives the user great reach to see distant objects. (1) You can look on the screen. (2) You can take a pic and ...
  • Replied in Perhaps but...
    ...but the OP had other issues with his first sample: https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/55538585 In your case, do you have a filter attached?  Is AF-FT set?  What variables are in play?  AF ...
