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...

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
