Hi! I have an old Nikon D80 but I am planning to finally move on.I am planning to buy a X-T10 with a XF 18-135MM F/3.5-5.6 for about 700-750€, thinking that it's a good deal. (Is it?) Or should I pick another lenses?But I am not really sure if I should go for it or wait for the X-T20, what is your opinion? Because that is already near my max budget.Also, in that price range, is there any other option that you would recomend instead of those two?Thanks in advance!

I recently started with a Nikon D80 which came with a Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6G ED-IF lens and I bought a Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 35mm F1.8G. Then a family friend who had moved onto Canon many years ago, keeping the Nikon lenses stored "just in case" and never went back! I did buy him a few drinks and made a small donation to his new lens fund. Yet there was a part of me which could not refuse, hence the question and request for help.

I have had my EM-1 since May 2015 and used it on a photo safari through Southern Africa in April>May 2016. At the time I had not used the Video capabilities of the camera at all. In fact, I had an old JVC Camcorder with me and did not use that much either. However, since returning and having used both at an Air Show I have been looking into using it on the next photo safari to Botswana/Namibia and am looking to equip it with a gimbal, or similar, so that I can have it in an horizontal...

Hi, I used to have a Nikon D80 back in days and if I were to change ISO in manual mode, I could see the exposure meter while dialing ISO button, however when I moved to canon system (now using a 7D - first generation) - if I want to dial ISO setting to put the meter reading in 'middle' of the exposure scale, the main exposure meter disappears - which is really annoying. The moment I press ISO button ISO/Exposure compensation scale shows up instead of main exposure meter. Is there any custom...

I just got this camera not too long ago (the 21st I think) and I already had a few questions that have all been answered and I think that is the resolve in terms of those questions, thank you all for the help in that thread too! But another issue has become apparent as time goes on with this camera, and that is the lack of ability to be able to catch proper focus at 1.8. This being said there are a few things that I have to say before blaming the camera, first, I am not sure what the best way...

Hello everyone,  I am not sure if this is the place that I should post this question but I thought that since it is about one of the cameras in this thread it should not be too far off. I just got the Nikon D800E not too long ago and have found a few problems, the first being that the SD card slot has to be depressed far below where any of the other Nikons that I have go just to get the SD card to lock in, and it takes a lot of force at that which means that I am not going to be able to take...

Hey gang,  I have a doozie of a question for you. My first Nikon since the D80, I'm usually shooting on Canon 1D II, 20d, T3i.   So in the wait to get funds to buy a Nikon lens I may have came across a most wonderful discovery... NOTHING!   Has anyone had any luck with the Adaptall 2 mounts on D7000's.  I know there's new ones that have the AI chip but I'm trying to use an original and I get this strange messed experience. I have an Adaptall Lens mount for 3 lenses, however the lens mount is...

I just received a D700 I bought on eBay.  It has between 5,000-6,000 clicks and is in mint condition. I'm checking it for any problems and so far, so good. But I am wondering about its rear multi selector. I only have a D200 to compare it with. The D700 multi selector sticks out more and is, for lack of a better term,  a bit more "sloppy" than the D200.  Is that normal for the D700? It's something I noticed immediately when I was checking the camera the first time. (The exterior design of the...

I have bought a Sony Alpha Nex 6 and I would like to use my older lenses used with Nikon D80 body. There are a couple of criterias to be filled in: a) the aperture and shutter should work both automatic and manualb) autofocus should also work both automatic and manual* One of the products I have found is Commlite CM-ENF-E1. Does this meet both criterias? If there are more working alternatives available, I am happy to receive information. *Examples of objectives in use:Tokina SD 12-24 F4 (IF)...
