  • Since I'm now finally getting ready to actually do something on this, I'm still vexed over FF vs DX - whether I should spend $2300 to get a Nikon D750 / 24-120 kit, or spend almost $2200 and get a ...
  • My question regarding this would be: assuming the same approx. aperture range, is there really that much of a difference between the 16-80 on, say, a D7200 and a "pro-level" 24-whatever zoom on a ...
  • Agreed.  His site offers a data point.  I'm pretty good at sorting through and analyzing data points to extract useful info. I don't understand the vitriol towards Ken Rockwell, his site, and ...
  • I'm not going to yammer about the semantics of "sharper" vs "more accurate" focusing - I know what you mean.  And I'll avoid moralizing about whether or not you should return your camera body ...
  • Created discussion thread Upcoming D500 "kit" with 16-80?
    Hi everyone - I notice that Amazon is listing what looks like a Nikon D500 "kit" that includes the Nikon 16-80 zoom.  But ... they're just adding what looks like the usual retail price of the ...

  • ... in case it got missed - I have no photo equipment right now (save for an iPhone, which delivers surprisingly well under juuuuust the right circumstances, otherwise it's not what I want to use). ...
  • Replied in Yes.

  • Replied in Yes.
    I should clarify that I have no photography gear at this time.  That should clarify things a bit.
  • Cool - so there's actually a named theory for this.  Maybe I should go read about it!  :-)
  • I'm not at all opposed at all to an m4/3 body that can produce excellent results, other than I have never seen an EVF that I liked at all.  But I haven't yet looked at the very latest gear.  And ...
  • I pretty much know the answer to this, at least generally.  I often had two zooms in my bag and a prime (all for FF): something like a 70-200, maybe a 28-70 or so, and then a 21mm or 24mm for ...
  • See - that's the point. I don't want to feel ANY negativity because I don't have this focal length or that focal length. I think what I want to re-experience from a long time ago is the reality ...
  • Created discussion thread An Idea For a Renewed Approach
    Hi everyone - I have an idea I'd like to run by you. I'm looking to get back into photography after a long hiatus.  I originally got into photography via film, manual operation cameras, primes, ...
