Hi guys, I wondered if I may ask a question,, one of my "passions" is flower photography, a couple of examples below,, all taken with compact cameras of one kind or another but I'd like to get closer & sharper results so am thinking of investing in a "proper" set up. Nearly all my shots are indoors tripod mounted so I suppose camera size is not too important although I'm not looking to have anything too heavy and had thought of a used Nikon D5100 or D5300, or maybe a micro 4/3rd set...
I want to take a few portraits of my family with the D5100. Do you recommend the 18-55 DX G lens or 18-200 VR II for best results? Of course, the VR II is at least a decade newer. I have both lenses but have only used the 18-200 mainly outdoors. I did take some interior shots of cathedrals with it and was very impressed with the images it produced in low-light conditions. I would search for previous posts but don't see any articles comparing these two lenses. Any advice would be appreciated.
Just got my D500, Mounted my old 18-55 f/3.5-5.6 lens from another Nikon and went on a casual walk and shot. What I immediately noticed was rather strong light fall off. This never happened with this lens while using my D5100 16MP or D7100 24MP. The shot that I was processing and noticed this was shot on a heavy overcast day with snow on the ground. The lens was at 40mm, camera was on AP f/5.6 ISO 100 1/320. When in ACR the dark edges really popped into view to the point the shot really...

Hi, I am to buy 55-300mm lens for my d5100. I can see huge difference in price between ebay and amazon: amazon: 244 GBP https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B003ZSHNCC/ref=ask_ql_qh_dp_hza ebay: 166 GBP https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Nikon-AF-S-DX-NIKKOR-55-300mm-f-4-5-5-6G-ED-VR-Lens-/111916068683 Is there any difference in between above two lens? Can anyone help me to decide if its safe to go with ebay as its very cheap as compared to amazon? Thanks in advance. Regards, Pratik.
It feels like it is never good time to buy new body :) I have mix of FX and DX lenses (16-85, 35, 85 and 105) and my shooting practice so far showed that I either stick to 16mm or 105 (normally macro or tele in dark). While I was interested to jump to FX and sell now by all standards oldish d5100 along with DX lenses, D500 brought back excitement - at least for short before full frame mirrorless comes out. However forthcoming trip to salt mines near Krakow made me just hungry to do...

I have purchased an AF-Zoom Nikkor 70-210 mm f/4 lens, for telephoto use, and when I attach it to my camera, with the lowest aperture number (highest f/ - number), it won't take any photos. Any help on a fix I've been searching for a while now. I'm pretty sure in the photography world its a fEE error for Nikon's. Any help would be great. Thanks!!
