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!!

Hello, I'm not referring to their differing specifications, which are easy to find, but to any comparisons in actual use/tests, e.g. sharpness, contrast, flare control, speed of autofocusing, etc. If there is such a comparison, I would appreciate being directed to it. (I want to know if it's worthwhile switching from the older to the newer lens. I use a Nikon D5100 and a Nikon D5500.) Thank you. --RUcrAZhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7scQbWkeNaY

I currently have a Nikon D5100 and have been thinking of upgrading to a D7500, why? because I want a faster camera for focusing on birds, have been reading reviews and yes not many like the D7500 but it doesn't worry me about having only one slot, that's all my 5100 has. why not upgrade to the next in the 5000 line? because I always wanted to upgrade to the 7000 series cameras and like the layout, I like the idea of 8 frames a second, touch screen, tilt screen, I am use to the touch screen on...

I have to photograph an event in 3 days & am wondering if anyone can advise on any major diferences between the 2 cameras which are not obvious. I have just about identified where the 5600 controls are & should be able press the shutter at the right time. I have alse checked everythinjg that I can think of to make sure that it works.  Are there any hidden differences which might impact on basic...

I've noticed lately that my pictures looks increasingly hazy - thought it was just the lighting or something, but it seems to be all the time now, and with different lenses. I use a Nikon d5100 and the images attached are shot with a Tamron 24-75 f/2.8 and a Nikkor 35 f/1.8. Sample images: The blue Corvette and the orange Camaro look hazy and the red Ferrari just looks dull and dark. Heres a shot of a blue Bentley from 2015 on the same setup for comparison: much more vibrant colors...

My 5 year old D5100 has started to have a flash problem. It only fires about 1 time in 10. Because it fires sometimes, I assume that I can't have unwittingly have changed a setting which disables the flash and that it is more likely to be an electrical/mechanical problem. If that is the case, it is unlikely that it would be worth paying to have it repaired. A new camera would be more cost effective. Does anyone have any thoughts? Thanks --Meyricke
