Hi there. I'm planning a 5 day trip in mid-October to photograph the Southwestern US. I've got a mini-RV (Jucy) out of Las Vegas and want to do some night photography in addition to the iconic photos of the Grand Canyon, Atelope Canyon, Horseshoe Bend and Zion (UT). My plan is to be at the Grand Canyon (South Rim) for 2 days, Page for 1 day and then Zion for 2 days. I don't know if I'm trying to cram in too much though. I have been to the Grand Canyon when i was young and Utah, including...
Hi!I recently dropped my AF-S DX Nikkor 55-300 VR lens on the ground. It landed on its front. Ever since then I have issues with focusing. It works 70%-80% of the time, but sometimes it just can't drive the focus motor. I have to switch to MF move the focus ring a bit and switch back to AF.Does anybody have a similar problem? Is it worth sending it to Nikon for repairs?

Hi all, This is my first post on DPReveiw. In preparing a wildlife trip, I'm looking for a reasonable telephoto lens that suits my Nikon D7100 body (DX sized sensor). The sole lens I have, is a portrait zoom (Sigma 17-70mm "C") which also sees landscape use most of the time, but for the next trip I'll need (much) more focal length. Since I try to shoot without tripod when possible, and due to luggage limitations, I'd like to avoid carrying a heavy lens that needs a permanent tripod mount, so...
I bet this question has been asked hundreds of times, but I am a total newbie, so please... If you only had $1000 to spend on everything from dslr to filters, what would you buy? I have considered the following: (top choice so far) d7000 with 18-105mm kit lens + 50mm f/1.8g af-s FX (75mm on the d7000) + Lowepro slingshot 200aw + 2 SanDisk 32gb memory cards same as above except a 35mm f/1.8 DX instead of the 50mm FX d7100 body only + 50 or 35mm f/1.8 + Lowepro slingshot 200aw + 2 SanDisk 32gb...
Hi, I have been shooting with Nikon D3200 mostly birds, and i am looking to upgrade to a better camera. D3200 doesn't have good enough AF, it mostly misses the focus and grinds it back and forth.(Nikkor 55-300mm) I know that this lens has slow AF. Also it seems like i can't get bright photos because i try to shoot mostly in F/8 with my nikkor 55-300mm to get the sharpest possible results, and if i bring the ISO up, its all noisy and shoft. I have been thinking about D7200 or D610. I am...
Hi, I have a relatively new (less than 1 year old) Nikon D5300. It has been working fine for a while, but today I turned it on to take some pictures but the autofocus through the viewfinder will not work. I Have to hold the button halfway to focus, but then it waits around 5 seconds before going through its whole range of focus. When I use the screen to autofocus, it works just fine. I have two lenses, the Nikon DX AF-S 18-55mm and the Nikon DX AF-S 55-300mm. It doesn't matter which lens I...

On this Thursday, I promised some of my classmates that I would shoot my school's first junior varsity basketball game. Except I don't ever shoot sports. I thought I would use this as an opportunity to expand my range. I usually shot a few portraits and people, if you count school events. I might be able to snag a seat up front but there are no guarantees because I would have to ask the coach first. I have a nikon 55-300mm lens with a very small aperture range, its f4.5-5.6, so it isn't...
