A post of curiosity. Never owned the 18-70 lens and probably don't have a use case for it (apart from GAS and curiosity and 'looks nice')But what do users think of it in 2022?(I've got a D7500 and D3300 and in that focal range 18-55 AF-P VR, 18-105 AF-S VR, Sigma 17-50 OS f2.8

Hi, Is it a good idea to ditch my kit lenses: -AF-P DX 18-55mm 3.5/5.6 VR   and -AF-P 70-300mm 4.5/6.3 VR ED for a: - FX AF-S 28-300mm 3.5/5.6 VR? I have a D3400 and I like taking photos anywhere and I mainly shoot animal (birds, dogs, etc.)   I also have a 50mm 1.8G and a DX 35mm 1.8G

Hello all, I'm struggling to find an answer to the exact question I'm looking for. I love the z50 so far but one of the main reason I got it was for vlogging. The issue is this- in good light the face detection sticks to my face like glue which awesome! BUT when I'm not in great light ( normally anything around 5000 ISO or more) it looses my face a lot, and when it does it basically doesn't focus back to my face it unless I tap on my face. The weird part is that I see the face detection box...

Looking for a super light weight zoom. l have the Nikon 18-135 that weighs less than 400g, but no VR. Don't want the 18-55 AF-P because l don't like focus by wire. And it can't be used on the D40 and the D7100 will need a firmware upgrade to use AF-P. Also l want a lens with AF/MF and VR switches on the lens. So it's between the AF-S VR l or ll. ls there any real difference in lQ between the two of them? --Billlf it's full frame, then l can't afford it.Poverty cures G.A.S.

Hi, I am looking for a square neutral density filter that I can use for sunsets. I have a Nikon D5600 and the sky is whited out when I try. My budget is 0-60 dollars. Thanks in advance.

I have a Nikon D3300, D7500 and venerable D60. I recently noticed for the D3300 that when I mount lenses other than the kit lens on it, there is some noticeable 'wobble' as if the mating of the flat parts of the lens and body are not perfectly flush, or at least there is room for some movement. This is more noticeable with heavier lenses. It seems to be predominantly at the bottom of the mounting ring that the play is evident. It is worst for Tamron 70-200 - it is probably only a fraction of...

nooby Qs I've read around a bit about astrophotography without lots of gear. Wide angle with wide aperture seems to be the thing. I have a Nikon 35mm f1.8 DX lens and a D7500 body. Wondering if this would be enough to 'dip my toe' for single shots of (parts of) the Milky Way? I also have: - Nikon 18-55 AF-P kit lens - what about it at f3.5 at 18mm? - old Sigma 17-50 f2.8 - how about it? I presume that the new Nikon 10-20 AF-P f4.5-5.6 just wouldn't have a low enough aperture (I don't own this...

I have a 7500D with the 35mm, 85mm and a Sigma 10-20 lens, which are to slow and noisy for video. Would investing in the 18-55mm af-p be a good choice and would it be worth it?

Hi, I use a Nikon D3300. Today I wanted to test the best settings for shooting landscapes. I got some weird results (?). It looks that the sharpest aperture for 18mm is f/9 when VR is ON, but f/3.5 is very close (almost the same, with nice center areas and corners on each picture). When VR is OFF for both 18mm and 55mm I get awful results overall at f/3.5 and f/5.6 (corners get the worst part). The "VR OFF" results make sense (I think) because closing the diaphragm improves sharpness (f/13 is...

Hi guys, I'm looking at upgrading to the D5600 and not sure which kit to buy. My local store currently has the 18-55 AF-P kit or the 18-140 kit with a £130 price difference. As I have a 16-80, 10-20 & 70-300 AF-Ps plus the 18-55 that came with my D3400, the 18-55 kit would be a little pointless.  I'm thinking either buy the 18-140 kit and slap that lens on the D3400, turning it into a single lens travel / walk around camera, sell off the 18-140 or just look for a D5600 body. Strangely my...
