Found one local decently cheap. I've been trying to read up on this lens, and haven't really found a definitive answer. I know the lens has USD - but does this also imply that it has a built in motor (like the AF-S lenses)? I have a D5100 and am trying to figure out if this lens would be MF only, or AF and MF. Thanks!

I've been watching seemingly hundreds of reviews, learning different things, hearing people's opinions, and I'm just stumped. I'm looking for a great camera for video. I don't want a camcorder because I really need interchangeable lenses for things like bokah. I've used a D5100, and it's autofocus is just horrible during video, so I read that most mirrorless have far better focus because of their on chip phase detection AF.  Well, I'm stuck between a few options. What I really want is a...

Because I can't find a discussion of my issue anywhere else on the web, I decided to register an account here in the hope that someone might enlighten me on what is going on. I've got a refurbished X100S and I really want to love this camera for the combination of it's compact size, fixed 35mm lens and quality. But it's playing hard to get! So hard, that I'm fantasizing about spending way too much money on buying a bulky Canon EOS 6D Mark II with a Sigma 35mm F1.4 DG HSM Art. The reason is,...

Hi,I have a Nikon D5100. I dropped it a while ago and then started having problems when using the view finder. If I take pictures in any mode using the live view option it works totally fine. However, if I take that same picture using the view finder, it says that the "subject is too dark". I can still take a picture but then the shutter seems to get stuck and after a loooong unwanted exposure time, the picture is taken and comes out white. Any ideas of what might have happened and how could...

I have a Nikon D5100. I am planning to buy two Yongnuo YN560 III. My goal is to take high key portraits of myself. If I attach one of the RF603N II transceiver to the D5100 and keep one transceiver in my hand to remotely trigger the shutter release (after focusing on myself with a half-press of the transceiver), will I be able to trigger both the YN560 III flashes as well (since these have the receiver built in)?

I  received a Nikon D5300 as a gift from my father. Before, I was using a Nikon D5100 as my main astrophotography camera. With the D5100, it was simple to make spectacular astrophotos. Now, I have no idea what the  correct settings are to capture the stars/planets with the D5300. I tried the same settings as on my D5100, only to get a completely white photo, with nothing visible at all. I tried lowering the ISO, lowering the aperture, and some other things, but to no effect.  I need to know...

About a year ago I received some excellent advice on this forum. I asked about shooting in some lower light conditions (high school football field) for marching band photos. I asked which camera should replace my D5100, and received advice to get a faster higher image quality lens, not a new camera body. I (somewhat reluctantly) took the advice and purchased a used Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/4G ED VR which has been fantastic and made all the difference in the world - you all were right,...

I sometimes had problems with my Nikon d5100 freezing, so I bought the d5300.  I recently had photos printed from memory cards from both cameras and all of the photos taken with the Nikon d5100 are much better than the ones with the d5300.  Has anyone else had this experience with these cameras?  All photos were taken on auto.  Can anyone recommend another camera to try?  Thank you in advance for any input.  This is really disappointing.

Hi, I have a Nikon D5100. It recently stopped working- the buttons will not respond and it won't read memory cards- for no apparent reason. No water damage, no impact damage, no weather damage... Nikon can't give me an estimate for how much it will be to repair until I send it to them, which means paying for shipping plus insurance, and then return shipping if I decide not to go through with the repair.Has anybody had a similar issue? I'm just wondering how much your repair ended up being. I...
