  • It is too early to know what will happen. The D850 remains the leader, in DSLR technology. The earliest an update announcement could be expected, I believe, would be late 2019. I think that the ...
  • For some time, I have felt that the 5Ds/5Ds R would be a “one-off.” The advent of the EOS R, and the 28-70/2 lens, reinforced this feeling. 5Ds/5Ds R owners, who wish to up-grade, with a DSLR ...
  • Replied in Whoosh!
    Nice capture! I am thinking it may be a Cooper’s Hawk? We have Cooper’s Hawks in our neighborhood, but I mostly recognize them by the patterns under their wings, which your image does not show, ...
  • Think Tank’s site has an on-line tool to help select a bag for what you plan to carry. When I used it, for a specific-sized camera, a gripped pro body, and one particular lens, a 24-70/2.8, the ...
  • I have found the PD Slide’s padding adequate for a D700 + 24-70/2.8G ED, all-day, for multiple days, when worn over my right shoulder, diagonally, with the camera hanging near my left hip. (A D700 ...
  • Yes, the PD Slide’s fabric can crease; I have to watch constantly for that. I have found the PD Slide’s padding adequate for a D700 + 24-70/2.8G ED, all-day, for multiple days, when worn over my ...
  • Unless Black Rapid pre-dates the year 1885, they did not invent the sling system that they sell. ;-) I saw Sunsniper slings, for sale in large camera stores, before I saw Black Rapid products ...
  • A “little friction” is very normal. “Grinding” is not normal, and is a symptom of a well-known problem, that will require a repair costing several hundred US dollars. There have been very detailed ...
  • I think this tends to happen when people discover DPR forum threads through on-line world-wide-web searches. A search for a random photographic term or subject will show extremely old threads as ...
  • I bought my first pre-owned D700 in early 2014, when the asking prices dropped noticeably, and my second D700 followed, soon afterward. In August 2015, I decided to add a preowned D3s, to be my ...
  • You are not clear, on whether you have the AF or AF-S version of the Nikkor 300mm f/4 IF-ED. If you have the AF version, which is readily distinguished by the drop-in filter holder and the ...
  • No worries, I did not “switch” systems. ;-) I chose to buy a D3s, in August 2015, after carefully considering both the D3s and 1D IV. The goal was a “lord of darkness” camera, within my budget, at ...
  • I was not even using a DSLR until 2008 or 2009, when I was trying my wife’s employer-issued D300s. There was something “just-right” aboiut the D300s, that I had not felt while handling film SLRs. ...
  • I simply meant that some of their FX lens reviews were done before they had their D3x. An example is the Nikkor 14-24/2.8G, tested on a D200, in 2007, but the review is still extant, on the site. I ...
  • It is a best practice to consult multiple sites. Some sites test only a single representative of a lens. Some sites test lenses only at close range. Some sites use only flat charts to serve as the ...
  • You would not be able to control the electronic aperture, which is the “E” part, so f/2.8 would be the only available aperture. Otherwise, the functioning should be OK.
  • Actually, some Nikkor lenses have the zoom and focusing rings arranged like Tamron lenses. Until it happened with the 70-200/2.8E FL, one of the “trinity,” however, there was relatively little fuss.
  • If your 50/1.2 can cover the long end, perhaps a Sigma 24-35mm f/2 Art lens could cover the wide end? My wife loves hers, which she uses on a D850. This one is less-expensive than a Nikkor ...
  • The Nikon f/2.8 “pro zoom trinity” lenses have fast accurate AF, and few lenses are more useful and versatile than a mid-range zoom, such as the Nikkor 24-70/2.8G ED. The question is whether the ...
  • If one will be shooting hand-held, the shape and balance of the lens will be more important than its weight. I believe that all of the lenses, in this category, have substantial weight. The weight ...
