    I've been trying to decide whether to upgrade my 70-300 AF-S (to a 100-400 Sigma/Tamron -- as a holdover until the 100-400 S is released -- IF it's small enough), so I started to go through some ...
  • I was thinking (hoping) that the 100-400 might be comparable to the 80-400 in quality, but end up being smaller and lighter much like the 24-70 f/2.8 S (800g/126mm) is compared to the 24-70G ...
  • Anyone care to hazard a guess on details of the 100-400 (price/size/date)? I currently have the AF S 70-300 VR that I'd like to upgrade and am trying to decide whether picking up a used sigma ...
  • That certainly seems like a really nice choice. I'd certainly like the extra reach. How is the auto focus on it? I've seen a few reviews describing it as a bit lacking. The Tamron equivalent also ...
  • Created discussion thread Upgrade from a 70-300 f/4.5-5.6g?
    I currently have the previous version 70-300mm (FX 70-300g VR). I mostly use it for wildlife when I'm traveling/hiking. I've been thinking about stepping up to something better for a while but ...
  • I have my eye on the 100-400mm, but it will depend heavily on price and size. I'd also like to get more into macros -- but I suspect that's not all too likely. Otherwise, the 14-30 occasional ...
  • As much as a I love taking photos, I absolutely hate going through them -- but I've been trying to be better about it. I'm also trying to make photography more of a regular thing -- rather than ...
  • I recently picked up a Z6, so it's possible my opinion will change the more I use it, but it is a bit lack luster in terms of its appearance imo. I find that I feel like I'm missing less with an ...
  • I picked up a Z6 earlier today from B&H and so far I'm really liking it with only a few minor complaints -- one being that I can't map the virtual horizon to a function button, two I wish the ...
  • I usually don't do any processing. On occasions I'll tweak the exposure, but only rarely. But I still shoot raw so that I have as much room in the future if I decide I want to edit it. It does, but ...
  • Well shooting raw still gives me the option and there isn't a downside other than storage space, which isn't a concern for me.
  • I'm always reluctant when buying used, but I could probably get a D610 for around $500-$600, and then use it in conjunction with my 24-85 f/2.8-4D and 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6g. Compared to my leading ...
  • I was considering the 14-24mm f/2.8 as an addition to my two lenses for my d7000, but then started to consider the fact that I might some day transition to a Z mount camera and so I was reluctant ...
  • I'm talking about using the 11-16mm Tokina with my current D7000. I wouldn't buy the Tokina for the Z6. I understand the pitfalls of tying to cover three ranges with two lenses, which is part of ...
  • I understand that the iPhone cameras are already in 35mm equivalents, I wasn't trying to estimate 24mm on FF (since, as you pointed out, the iPhone is more or less already showing that). I was ...
  • I'd certainly love the 14-30mm lens, but I don't want to spend the $1300, plus I don't think missing the 30-70mm range would work for me. So I'd either end up with three lenses (kind of back at ...
  • I shoot RAW so that I have more room to play if I decide I want to, either now or in the future -- not that I plan to. More often than not, I don't process the image at all. But the crux of the ...
  • I've always used ViewNX2's convert to JPEG, but I don't know if that isn't the right workflow. E.g. would some other converter perform better, would having the camera also save a JPEG copy be ...
  • Created discussion thread Best way to process RAW files
    I have a D7000 (and am thinking about upgrading to a Z6) and I always shoot RAW giving me as much freedom as possible in post processing, but in truth, I rarely ever edit any photos and only on ...
  • Created discussion thread Upgrading to a Z6 from a D7000
    I currently have a D7000 with a 24-85 f/2.8-4D and 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3g (non AF-P). I'm considering buying a Z6 with the 24-70mm f/4 S kit lens (since my 24-85D lens sadly won't AF) and continuing ...
