  • Created discussion thread Z6 200-500 elk
    First outing with the lens
  • Lots of people like wide angle but honestly I'm not a big fan. I shoot more landscape in the 24-120 range. Wide is great for certain situations but it's more difficult to find the proper set up ...
  • Replied in 850 vs z6
    Good points, just got the 200-500, reviews say it focuses faster? True? I don't have issues with focus on the Z6 but I wouldn't mind more MP now I'm shooting some wildlife. Evf isn't as good but I ...
  • Created discussion thread 850 vs z6
    I have a z6, love it. Just got a 200-500 and wouldn't mind some extra MP for cropping with wildlife. I have 4 FX lenses and 2 Z mount. Thinking about just selling the Z6 and getting a 850. Better ...
  • Yeah I hear you, the zoo it might be great. I was trying it for outside wildlife and didn't have enough reach. Ordered a 200-500, much bigger, much heavier but should get the job done. If you're ...
  • I wasn't happy with the 70-300 but I might have bought it for the wrong reason, 300mm. I returned mine not happy with it. I'm lacking in the 70-200 range still, hoping something comes out but it's ...
  • I just bought it, shot about 10 shots of the dog and shot about 10 with the G version, all at 1.8. The S was so much sharper at 1.8, flawless. I mixed up the photos in lightroom and showed my ...
  • Thanks Kelly, as you can see from previous posts, some dont like the BW as much. So subjective! I personally prefer them because I didn't like the clash of colors they were wearing. https://www.fli ...
  • Thanks Karen, most of these are cropped in already and I left room, great advice. I agree with John, but want to add - just step 2-3 paces back on all of these and give yourself some room to crop ...
  • Thanks for the very good feedback. I like to throw some black and whites in the mix especially with the color choice of this family, kind of clash but that's why I did it. Thanks for ur time and ...
  • Thanks for the feedback!
  • Created discussion thread CC family shoot
    The snow definitely cut down on keepers but let me know what u think.
  • Might as well get some CC while here. Thanks for the advice.
  • Very good point
  • Created discussion thread Family photo shoot advice
    I know this is a nikon forum but since I shoot a Z6 and this is the only place I post I hope it's appropriate for here Just got a 50 1.8 anticipating a FREE family photo shoot for a coworker, was ...
  • Replied in 70+200
    While I have no experience with that lens, the specs say travel only lens and at that cost, I'd rather tote extra weight or get a 70-200 Tamron 2.8 for about the same price and much better IQ and ...
  • Replied in 70+200
    Good information. I tried the 70-300 but didn't like it, I probably had to high of expectations and probably try again. At 300, I wasn't impressed but it's tough when you get used to this Z glass. ...
  • Created discussion thread 70+200
    What's the best options to cover 70-200 since it's not on the road map and I don't need 2.8? Cost vs performance?
  • Created discussion thread 85 1.8 orrr nikon z50
    I have a z6, about to buy a 50 1.8, I was thinking about getting the 85 1.8 as well since it's on sale. But then I saw the z50 is on sale as well. Would it be wiser and more versatile to get a z50 ...
  • Created discussion thread Family shoot
    I have a family shoot coming up (unpaid) and will have kids in it. I usually shoot full manual mode but thinking I will not be quick enough with kids. Do you shoot aperture priority with kids? How ...
