I find that the number of perceptual megapixels DXOMark says the D800 provides with any given lens is suspiciously low. For example, they say that the Tamron 15-30 provides 24 P-MP on the D800E, but only 15 on the D800. Is it possible that the OLPF cancellation provides this much extra detail? However, they also say that the D610 provides 1 MORE megapixel of detail than the D800 with the same 15-30 lens. I find that hard to believe. Are they just plain wrong, or am I missing something?

Hi all, I am having an issue using my D800E with the WR-A10 remote adapter set attached. It occasionally fires two shots in a row when only one push is given on the wireless remote. estimate it happens once every 10 times. The camera is in single shot mode (S). It only happens when utilizing the WR-A10. I I have switched out batteries and no change in behavior. When I have a pocket wizard attached to the hotshot, the "double shot" from the remote over powers my dynalites and the throws the...

I wasn't able to move to Sony system because I couldn't find a compact/fast 35mm lens for FF E-mount i.e. A7r. 35mm and 85mm are the most import focal lens for me. Before moving, I always examine the options in the system. Sony's own 35mm F2.8 would be a fantastic choice if its an F2 or F1.8.  Weight is very important for me, since otherwise I would stick with my Nikon D800e.  What are my choices for 35mm and 85mm fast compact primes ?

Hello everyone, Hope you are well. I want to get the Fuji GFX 50s, but there are some things that I need to clarify. I'd appreciate if someone can advise me on those. 1. Memory card support: Since SanDisk 512GB Extreme Pro SDXC cards came out, I've bought one and started using it. And then slowly I bought more and now I have 6 x 512GB Extreme Pro SDXC cards. I've used them on many cameras for example: Nikon D800E, D810, Sony RX100 M2, M4, Pentax K-3, K-1, Sigma DP2 Quattro, SD Quattro. But...

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...
