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...

My concern is pretty simple. I am new to using DSLRs. I have used other stuffs to take photos in the past, with good results  I own a D5200, going to upgrade to D5600.  As for the lens, I have used a 18-55 AF-S VRII kit lenses, which I found to be perfect in almost every way, except for the fact that they are only good at the very far zoom, at 55mm, and maybe at 35, at wide ends being quite a little softer. I bought 18-55 AF-P in light of the fact that it might have a better autofocus system,...

Hi, I just been playing, testing and setting up a D3300 with the 18-55 AF-P VR lens that I bought as a Nikon refurb for a very reasonable price.  My main use for this will be in a remote camera trap unit.  The D3300 has a big advantage here over the D3400 as it has the cable release socket; essential for this job!  And, for these purposes, I really don’t need the bells and whistles of a body 5x the price of this body with its lens. Coming from larger DX bodies this little DSLR is a bit of...

just got a D3300 with the 18-55 af-p . Its very nice indeed for the price but I want a single zoom for days out family stuff. Trying to decide between the 16-85, 18-140 and the 18-200vr2.  As I`ve only ever used the 18-105 and 18-55 I`m not sure which one is the better lens . Trying to get the best image quality  across sharpness , good contrast firstly then range convenience .  Anyone already tried any of these able to advise me .
