Looking for opinions on what lenses I should take on a 4 week trip to europe with my D750. Going to south of spain, provence, and the dolomites! Stuck between not wanting to overpack, and not wanting to miss out on photos. Nikon 20mm f1.8 (best landscape for mountains and low light) Nikon 24mm f2.8 (super small and compact, less distortion than 20mm, good for super light day trip) Nikon 24-120mm f4 (great all round but heavy) Nikon 50mm f1.8 (portraits) Nikon 80-200mm f2.8 (old version -...

Hi, how much force is required to turn the manual aperture ring on the Nikon 50mm f/1.8D? How stiff is it compared say to the focus ring? Does it click into positions (steps)? The reason I am asking this question is I would like to hook it up to a gear and rotate it electronically. So the smoother and easier the rotation the better. Hard to rotate ring would require more powerful and power hungry motor (it will run from a battery) and there is also the potential for slightly nudging the...
Hi guys, I just purchased a used Nikon 50mm f/1.8D lens to replace my Nikon Series E 50mm f/1.8 (because it's getting old and doesn't have AF). I took a couple pics to try it out, and noticed some "greyness" in the lower left corner on a particular shot at 1.8. I figured it's just regular wide aperture vignetting, but it seemed odd that it's mostly in that corner, and that it's grey, not dark. When I took the same picture with the old lens, I don't see a grey spot. Both pictures are...

Hi, i'm new on digital photography and lenses i'm using Nikon D7500 and planing to buy; Nikon 50mm f/1.8D and Nikon AF-S 35mm f/1.8G DX 50mm is a full frame lens but 35mm is for aps-c lens isn't it? and i thought that 50mm will give equivalent 75mm because of the crop factor and 35mm aps-c lens will give exact 35mm, but in this buying guide it says "35mm F1.8 is equivalent to a 52mm 'standard' lens".can someone please explain this calculation? thank you... Nikon AF-S DX 35mm F1.8G Nikon's...
Hi! I have a Fotasy Nikon - NEX (Nikon SOny E ) adapter and it stuck to my Nikon 50mm 1.8 pencake E series lens... I can get it off (they stucked together NOT to the camera). Is there any solution how I should get them apart? There was a screw in the adapter I even removed it (you can see the hole), but nothing changed. Im am pretty fit, so I dont think "getting someone with a bigger biceps" would sove kind of problem. I appreciate any help, thanks in advance!!
Hello!New to DPreview :) I just got a Nikon D7100 a few weeks ago, (have had a D5100 for many years prior), but find myself having trouble taking burst shots that don't end up blurry when I pan the camera. Yesterday I went down to a state park where an informal time trial bike race was being held, and was casually taking photos of the cyclists as they flew by, but realized that the shots were slightly blurry when I was trying to track them. The photos were taken in the Golden Hour (like,...
Hi all, I know this question might look silly in terms of a huge difference in the price of these two lenses! I just got my 24-70 f2.8G today and I am not still sure to keep or return it. In 50mm, it seems that my prime lens 50mm is doing slightly better than this expensive lens. In general, would you please share me your opinion on Nikkor 24-70 or alternative option, having 24, 35, 50, and 85mm prim lenses. Thanks

Since about 18 months ago have a 23.5x15.6 crop-format Nikon D5600. More recently I bought a AF Nikkor 50mm f/1.8D lens* which has worked very well at apertures of 2.5 or narrower, but which has presented some problems when I try to go wider. I have mostly used it for astrophotography, and at 2.2 I've found that lens distortions become very noticeable away from the center of the image. Mostly they are radial, with the stellar "dots" or "points" turning into "sausages", with the sausages...
