  • I have been using one of my AF-D lenses, my 16/2.8D Fisheye, since I had to focus it manually, on an FM3A camera, or use it with a Novoflex EOS/NIK adapter, on a Canon 7D or 5D, focusing manually. ...
  • If I buy an FX -M ILC, I will probably buy it from Houston Camera Exchange. If I want to pre-order, I will need to provide an actual 20% deposit, not just a CC number. I like that, as it keeps the ...
  • Let it rest, until it is a known fact. :-) Of course, the Z7 is a year newer than the D850, so it is logical that it may have tech that the D850 does not have. If true, it will not bother me, that ...
  • Welcome to the forum! :-) Notice that the question was asked in the year 2011. You must have dug quite deeply to find this old thread.
  • I love my Micro-Nikkor 60G as an general-purpose lens in the “normal” focal length range. It largely relegated my several fifties to reserve status. Its shortcoming, for true macro shooting, is ...
  • Welcome! :-) The Nikkor AF 28-105mm f/3.5-4.5D can do both group and macro, for considerably less than $200 US, for a very-well-preserved, pre-owned sample. Distortion is notable low, actually less ...
  • Your EF 100-400L II IS is actually a very good close-range lens, with a nicely close Minimum Focusing Distance, and a better Maximum Magnification than most telephoto lenses. Not many lenses can ...
  • I normally prefer the stability of two points of attachment, so that rules out the swiveling carabiner concept. I do like to wear straps diagonally, so the camera hangs under one arm, or near the ...
  • Oddly enough, I hated trying to deal with a mixture of FX D700 and DX D7000 cameras, and decided to keep using Canon as my APS-C/“DX” system. This was while handling my wife’s D7000 cameras, as I ...
  • Try some portrait-style images with the 100mm end of your EF 100-400L II. You will need enough space for this to work, of course. Then, perhaps, if the 100mm focal length is OK, rent or borrow an ...
  • There are affordable portrait lenses. If $800 is affordable, pre-owned, excellent Nikkor 85/1.4D lenses can be found for that price. If manual-focusing is OK, one of the true legends, the Nikkor ...
  • I understand that the EF 20mm f/2.8 USM lens is no longer the go-to lens when one wants a high-performing 20mm on today’s high-MP bodies, but, for those who want to use its famously complex ...
  • Some excellent Nikon lenses are available at “cheap” prices. First, I will mention the AF 28-105mm f/3.5-4.5D lens. These sell for little more than $100 on evil-bay, in excellent condition. Their ...
  • If your Canon lens is the EF 100-400L II IS, well, it is better, in my opinion, than the Nikkor 80-400mm G counterpart. I generally prefer Nikon zoom lenses, but this one is the big, notable ...
  • I added Nikon as a second system, starting with a Novoflex EOS/NIK adapter, so my wife and I could share lenses. She had been issued a Nikon camera by her employer, and I had started SLR shooting ...
  • Colored filters are available, that screw onto the lens’ threads, in the manner of the several types of non-colored filters. I have used these, for specific effects, while experimenting with ...
  • I use both Canon and Nikon DSLRs, and, drifting off-topic a bit, just added a pre-owned, but well-kept EF 14/2.8L II. I had hoped that this purchase would be followed with good luck with the ...
  • My first pro zoom “trinity” lens, in early 2015, was the 14-24/2.8G. If I recall correctly, it had been on my wish list since 2010 or 2011, before I owned an FX camera. This was a time when I ...
  • Well, I would not say “rich,” but there was enough to update several Nikon cameras to current models, plus add a 5D IV. Buying the 5D IV meant postponing a planned telephoto lens, and buying the ...
