Recently I have made a pleasure to me myself and updated my D7000 to D500 body and - generally - I'm very happy with new camera. The dilemma I'm solving now is by what lens shall I complete my kit today. Currently I'm using my over ten-years-old Nikkor 18-200 VR I which I have bought for - at that time - high end D80 camera as my mostly travel and all-around lens. Many things has happened in digital photography since then and I have slightly changed my attitude too (... from "... look, I was...
I currently have a D5100 and would consider upgrading to the D7xxx or other series. I bought the D5100 because of the fully articulating LCD. I often take pictures of wildflowers near the ground and many are in vertical (portrait) mode. I have often wondered how you use the tilting only LCD's in vertical mode. It seems Nikon only uses the articulating LCD on the D5xxx series and wonder how vertical mode is handled on tilting only LCD's. I was using a D80 and the fixed LCD caused me to get...

Being a hardware design engineer i cannot imagine the reason that Nikon could not switch the motor type in some new lenses (AF-P type) and not keep compatibility with older cameras. I am not familiar with the electrical connections they use in the mount, but i assume they use a few pins (4 maybe) to keep compatibility with AF type lenses where the lens just reports focal length to the camera. For driving the focus motor and VR they must use at least two pins to power the lens and at least two...
After finally upgrading from my D80 to a D7200, I find myself not really using my V1 and J4 anymore. I want to sell them, but I have no idea what kind of value to place on them. Does anyone have a good reference or method to determine the value of my Nikon 1 systems?

Let me start by saying I have been shooting slr/dslr for 20+ yrs, although the tech/math part of it is not my forte.. I'm so confused as to why my photos lack brilliance & sharpness with my d7100. My old D80 pics are by far way more impressive. I thought perhaps it might be due to one particular lens (70-300mm nikkor dx 5.6 vr) however LRcc is not detecting metadata from the d80 shots. I know there are a lot of variables in my problem. My question is: how do I determine where I'm messing...
Hello all, I know DX and FX formats are different. But this is the dilemma I am currently facing. My first camera was Nikon D80, I've had it for a few years and I loved it, it was great. My only problem with it was the small frame especially when using the 50mm lens. I had to sell it in 2014 and I've been without a camera since then. Now I want to get back into the scene but due to my limited budget, I'm finding it hard to make a decision. I am not a professional, I won't be making any money...

Hello, i just received a Nikon D5600 and found out that it has issues with several of my lenses. with the Tamron 70-200 f2.8 (no vc, about 3 years old) it focuses perfectly on the OVF but its back focusing in Liveview. the image is blurry and i get focus confirm where i shouldn't. with the Sigma 18-200 DC OS (7-8 years old with internal focus motor) not focusing at all in both OVF and LV(motor doesn't move and the VC isn't working either). with the Tamron 17-55 f2.8 it sometimes fine but in...

I attended the fire parade at Liestal Switzerland but on return back found a number of pictures had "flare" type lines like the ones in the pic. Trying to understand what my D80 and 50mm 1.4 with a UV filter were doing - hence asking the question as many others came out really well. No "ghost" effect. Any help really appreciated.
So, my work got me a D7200 in December, and today I accidentally tipped over my tripod with the camera on it, ugh. The hot shoe PC connector took the brunt of it (and is trashed), and from what I can tell, there's no physical damage to the camera or 50mm/1.8 lens. It doesn't appear that the camera even touched the ground. I shoot horizontally using an extender bar on the tripod so it looked like the hot shoe + extender propped the camera up enough to avoid hitting the ground. However, now the...
