Hello, I am in the market for a Macro lens to try my hand at close-up and to double as a portrait lens. My camera is a D800E which I received over xmas as the best gift of my life! I'm just getting to grips with full frame and can't buy my macro lens yet, until I have bought a standard zoom and have saved up some more $. I wanted to start research though. I have been reading up on the Sigma, Nikon and Tokina 105 F2.8 versions, and the 90mm Tamron. The Nikon isn't right up there with it's...

I have found a few threads here and there on my second question below, but selfishly still want to submit my specifics! Apologies for the detail, but I truly appreciate any insight for those who bother to read this! I owned a D5300 for 3 years, before that a low end Canon DSLR. My dad has been into photography his whole life, but his health is failing and he never goes out. Last week he gave me his D800E and a Sigma 50mm F1.4 (Older version, not art). His logic is that he would leave it to me...

I have my current D800e for a couple of years now. The issue is that the far right focus point seems to struggle and hunt a lot when focusing. When I shoot in studio, portrait orientation, I use the top most focus point (far right in landscape orientation) to focus on the eyes, It hunts and sometimes can't focus at all. There is proper lighting on the subject so it should be able to grab focus. Works fine with the left and center points. I have sent in my camera to Nikon and they are wanting...

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...

Hi,I recently bought a Nikon D750. Had been using a D90 for 5 years before that and had faced the same issue before when I initially started shooting RAW.I remember downloading and installing some kind of windows codec for RAW support and it worked but it's not working for the D750 RAW files. I googled and found this -http://www.digitalcitizen.life/how-view-raw-pictures-windows-live-photo-gallery-and-fix-weird-errors Which ultimately leads to this...

Hi, I processed my D800e raw then exported the Aperture made versions as tiff files. They are averaging from a few at 126 MB to 216 MB. What is making those files so huge? I was averaging 20 seconds per image to export.  Another question, when I  rt. click on one of those tiff's for info it states Color Space RGB yet has Color Profile sRGB. My camera is set to RGB so why is the Color Profile sRGB? SRGB is fine for jpg's export but I'd think it should be RGB for the tiff. What's the difference...

The Nikon cameras have a primary designation such as "D3000" but also carry a sub-model number embedded in the tailing digits of the UPC (under the bar code on the box). Examples are as follows: a Nikon D5 may have a UPC of "0182 080 1557 3", of which the sub-model number is 1557.   The D5 also has a sub-model of 1558. The D800E has sub-models of 25480 and 25498. The D810 has a sub-model of 1542. What is the significance of the sub-model designation?
