Just a general question,...
how come video cameras often have square shaped sun hoods?

Anyone know how the AF speed of the Sigma 150-600 compares to the "Bigma" 50-500 with and without this correction ?

fireplace33: I have quite a basic question.
At the moment I use a Nikon D7100 with a set of various FX & DX lenses
Does this type of adapter mean…
I could take my current collection of DX and FX (Nikon and 3rd party) lenses (please see which ones in my gear list)
and attach them on the Nikon version of the adapter and then use them on a micro four thirds camera?
If it works, what disadvantages might I expect using my existing lenses compared to using equivalent specifically designed m43 lenses?
If it works, what would be a good m43 camera to consider for this ?
Thanks for your feedback

Thanks, seems to be not particulary useful then :-(

PSK: Will 3rd party batteries work on the D5200 after this firmware "upgrade"?

I have now installed the firmware update (D7100) too and had no problem with using 3rd party batteries after updating.

Zigmont: How come I have never, ever in all the 10+ Nikon cameras and many lenses I have owned since the 1980's, have never received one single message from Nikon telling me there's an update available?

I only catch it when I see an article like this online. Thanks for that DPReview, but thanks for nothing to Nikon.

I got an e-mail directly from Nikon (before this DPR article) inforrming me about the Firmware update.
Did you register your purchases on their website?
Maybe that is the trigger for such support mails?

@belle100
Thanks for clarifying. As I half suspected your comments were from "category 3"
Always good to be cautious though.

If anyone else here has any relevent experiences to exactly this particular firmware upgrade concerning 3rd party batteries it would be great to hear from you. Thanks

@belle100
Let's get this 100% clear please:
- 1) You have tried this and have seen that 3rd party batteries, that worked before, definitely do not work after making this particular firmware change (which batteries did you try?)

- 2) you have heard that others have made this particular firmware upgrade on the D7100 and reported that 3rd party batteries no longer work after the "upgrade"

-3) you have heard generally that some 3rd party batteries in some cameras do not work after upgrading to some new firmware version

Which is it, 1 2 or 3 or something else?
thanks for clarifying.

Is it possible to roll back to the working Firmware version if this should prove to be a problem?

In reply to:

ForeignerOnEarth: The main change (undocumented) is the compatibility correction with Nikkor AF-S DX 16-80mm f/2.8-4E VR. I did not wait and sold D7100 and bought D7200, but one owner waited and he is now happy with D7100 + 16-80. I am happy with D7200 + 16-80, but lost money by D7100/D7200 upgrade.

What was the compatibility issue with the d7100 and the new 16-80?

Link | Posted on Sep 17, 2015 at 15:12 UTC

I'd love to see a direct comparison to my current "walk around lens", the Sigma 17-50 F2.8

Maybe such a comparison could convince me to buy the 16-80 ?

On article Nikon offers AF-S DX Nikkor 16-80mm F2.8-4E ED VR (336 comments in total)

anyone know what the max aperture would be at 50 mm?
In such non constant aperture lenses, the F2.8 is sometimes lost very quickly as one zooms in.

I'd like to see a comparison of this lens in its 17-50 range to my Sigma 17-50
