  • Another good choice with the 35/1.4. I'm a later 'baby boomer' and older black and white film photographs tend to hold the most interest for myself. Probably because I enjoy museums and history in ...
  • Great choices and some great suggestions here. You can use Roland Vink's excellent site (serial numbers page) to get an idea of production run dates for older lenses. Later lenses with the SIC ...
  • Thank you for the fascinating insight Basil. I thought I mentioned something about DSLR sales but I now feel guilty enough to up my anonymous monthly cash donation to Nikon. Those fellas updating ...
  • I didn't move anything, but rather, widened those 'goal posts' to include more truckloads of lenses. Most of which will be not become immediate landfill because Nikon comes up with some $2500 ...
  • Internal focus motors automatically mean they are as good with an adapter as they are on a high quality DSLR? Sigma 120-300/2.8 ? And having to haggle every time with a puny adapter for this , this and
  • "decades old AI lenses". I'm pretty sure Nikon is (NOT) investing much 'time and money' there. I think many people are highly underestimating the (HUGE) quantity and usefulness of some of the ...
  • I believe it and why not? Nikon have proven themselves to be very effective in incremental upgrades with both cameras and lenses.
  • Apparently, and confusion reigns when what is important to them doesn't fit the criteria for others... Improved Live View functionality in a D750 body? Yep, waiting for prices to drop personally, ...

  • Oh my, another expert! Hint: Google AIN'T yer friend
  • curious farmers want to know. How soon can we expect raging forest fires in parts of the Midwest? I'll stick my finger approximately in the middle of a map of the continental United States and ...
  • The "Petroleum industry" has had little to do with the massive clearing of life supporting trees, which has been gong on for CENTURIES. Millions and millions of acres of trees, cleared for crops, ...
  • Replied in simple answer:
    a vastly more diverse selection of lenses (and cameras), neither of which I can foresee happening anytime soon. A brisk and diverse secondhand market would certainly add some monetary appeal as well. ...
  • Commented on a photo in the Nikon Z fc sample gallery sample gallery

    I don't know how anyone could be complaining about the image quality from this tiny zoom that adds a 'whopping' $149 on to the kit price. But there will likely be some.

    Good job, Nikon!

  • Replied in 'going back'
    'focus by wire' ~ fly by night, fly by the seat of your pants, take your pick. you might be surprised in the number of people that don't care diddly about 'Z equivalents'
  • 15 second summary: Nikon point and shoot AF not up to 2021 standards for Jaaared Polin, 'professional' photographer
  • Why, thank you so much a 'right to my views'. And BTW, I just couldn't crawl out of bed every day without a few dozen 'likes'. Maybe they can solve some of these problems by oh, I don't know, ...
  • about as absurd as the term 'Instagram influencer'. Young, overweight couch potatoes can then weigh in on the loss of their 'hero'. Reality show antics from an inexperienced climber, desperate for ...
  • Replied in wow,
    and unbeknownst to most, this selfless 'influencer' was actually climbing down to save a chipmunk stranded on a steep ledge. So she thereby belongs on the Mount Rushmore of human achievement, gone, ...
  • @jnd - why people would want to spend a bunch of time editing smartphone stills and video is beyond my comprehension. Sort of defeats the purpose of the modern 'smart' phone camera, doesn't...
