  • Replied in Junk as art?
    Be careful to leave little passageways so you can move from room to room.
  • I was somewhat upset to read the news of their closing. I've bought all my photo equipment at K&S since about 1984 when I got my Nikon FE2. I really appreciated being able to handle a product ...
  • I have a DSLR with several lenses and a Sony RX100 travel camera. I don't travel with the DSLR stuff because it's so big and heavy. The Sony is very compact indeed but doesn't have much of a zoom ...
  • Only you know if you should care.
  • Replied in That's my plan
    Yep. I'm getting on a plane for Croatia tomorrow and bicycling down the coast. I'm taking my dread Sony RX100 + batteries and some memory cards; that's as much weight as I want to carry. I'll ...
  • That must be why that's the only kind of photography I'm good at. That creative stuff doesn't compute.
  • "Travel buddy" I wouldn't consider a DSLR as a travel buddy. I have a DSLR and never take it when I travel. I take a Sony RX100 because it's much smaller. Why are you considering an interchangeable ...
  • If you are using hyperfocal distance, you aren't using autofocus. You just set the lens at what you hope is the right distance. So the camera's autofocus points don't matter because you're not ...
  • I meant, but did not specify, the SB-5000's radio wireless rather than the preflash system used by the other speedlights. Sorry.
  • What is a decent amount of money for you to pay for a flash? For $600 you can get an SB-5000 with wireless control. The SB-700 isn't as powerful and doesn't have wireless but has TTL, bounce and ...
  • Nikons, like most other SLR's, meter with the lens wide open. There's a mechanical linkage on all Nikon DSLR's that stops the lens down for taking the picture. Nikon's old AI system connects the ...
  • Replied in MP-E65
    Nikon has nothing to match Canon's 1X-5X macro lens.
  • Aside from not having autofocus, old lenses won't meter with your camera. This is an additional annoyance. But they will fit and you can take pictures with them. I strongly prefer using completely ...
  • That's correct. Note that the front element has to be at least as large as the entrance pupil, otherwise it becomes a new, smaller entrance pupil. Retrofocus wide angle lenses have very big front ...
  • Replied in Where were you?
    I don't care what lens I use, anything a few miles away is pretty unsharp due to crud in the air. Maybe you can do this in New Mexico.
  • Well, the Nikkor is a crop sensor lens while the Canon is full frame. So you will indirectly get better image quality out of the Canon lens because you'll be using a larger sensor. A more direct ...
  • No. The relative aperture of a lens is the ratio of its focal length to the diameter of its entrance pupil. The diameter of the entrance pupil is the apparent size of the physical aperture as ...
  • Replied in Not the 35
    Neither one of those has good bokeh. The 50 is eh and the 35 is about as bad as the 16-85. But they will give you narrow depth of field.
  • Replied in Can't be
    Nah. Whales are big.
  • Is this your only lens with an aperture ring? There's a custom setting (f7 on my D300) that transfers aperture control to the lens for non-G lenses. Check to see if that's set on your D4.
