  • The big question I'd ask is what will you get out of this upgrade? Do you find yourself commonly in situations where you need to crop a lot? Or is this just future proofing? If it's the latter then ...
  • In regards to the simplicity it seems like it work at least based on my shooting. I have my record buttons set to ISO and pretty much never touch anything but that and the 2 dials (though I shoot ...
  • That hasn't been my experience especially when culling images in Lightroom, I get lag with mechanical drives and none with SSDs. Also the import time is lower IIRC. Now with SATA VS NVME I haven't ...
  • I took a lot of great images with my E-420 back in the day, I loved that little camera. The 35 macro, 9-18, and 14-54 were my favorites in case you find any for a song.
  • Yes and no, you're using backup software so there is some delay and a performance hit to your main drive as it has to read the files to write on your external on top of everything else.  Plus the ...
  • I doubt it'll be a serious issue for a few years at least and it could be many more due to the large install base/quality of cameras and lenses out now. Unless there's a seismic change a D5, D750, ...
  • I'll usually narrow it down to 2 top choices based on sample images more than charts and then rent them. But my concern is more that it's sharp enough wide open and otherwise has a good look to ...
  • Quick background I owned a D700 for 7 years and a D7200 for 2+. Pros for the D7200 Resolution Dynamic Range in total and especially lifting shadows/ISO invariance. The D700 has banding at very high ...
  • If you just care about a fast initial af lock either should be fine. Though I would look into the specific lens you're thinking about getting.  I don't have any experience with the one you ...
  • For some lower ISO examples here are a few production shots from a recent music video shoot: I'm loving this lens!
  • You can get the 17-50 F2.8 Tamron without OS for Nikon, I picked one up for a little under 200 bucks used and it weighs under a pound. KEH has 2 of them for 218-238 right now. If you do stick with ...
  • The big question is with the D7200 do you use AF-S or AF-C? If it's the former the E-M5 mkII will work great for you, otherwise to get anywhere close to the D7200's AF you'll want the E-M1 mkII. Al ...
  • Replied in full frame
    I totally agree that it's a capable camera, and that the use cases for the OP are what matters. My point was that it's not the answer for stills as was stated and was just laying out the potential ...
  • Replied in full frame
    That's my point, FX might not be the best upgrade path and depending on their use cases a D700 could sometimes be a step back vs some DX alternatives. Also that in general the D700 is showing its ...
  • Replied in full frame
    If you're shooting professionally, or would benefit from the added benefit of the different effective focal lengths of your lenses I'd go for it especially with the prices dropping. I actually own ...
  • Replied in full frame
    I know some people love the look* of the D700 but personally I'd take my D7200 over it and that's after having shot the 700 for 7 years.  The resolution and dynamic range give more possibilities ...
  • So I didn't shoot anything too crazy circus wise tonight but it was enough to let me know the lens wont get every key moment but as long as the big thing is documenting the full act and there ...
  • Replied in plastic 40-150
    I love mine, and I especially loved at a recent airshow only having to carry it and my EM10 MKII vs a much, much, much more massive D750/70-300. And most importantly I'm still very happy with the ...
  • Replied in Israel trip
    Nope, but you can get adapters for cheap. http://www.megavolt.co.il/Tips_and_info/visitor.html Also it's 220 volt so check your devices.
  • Fingers crossed, especially since the ergonomics of their new deeper grip in the D850/7500 doesn't work too well with my hands so I'm a bit worried about the 750 replacement.
