When I attached this lens to all my dslr bodies it does not respond. In the D3s viewfinder I see a triangle figure followed by a zero. It is not till I slightly twist the lens the I see apertures 2.8, 4 etc and all auto focus controls are engaged again. But then it seems to loose connectivity all over again. I switched to my 14-28mm Afs lens and all apertures and focus works on the D3s body. I then put the 70-200 on the D2hs body and apertures don’t show up in readout of viewfinder and auto...

I'm planning to buy some forest land soon and also have a budget to upgrade my camera from a Nikon D2Hs (APS-C).  I'm vacillating between a Nikon Z6ii or a Fuji GFX 100S.  If I went with the 100S, which lens do you suggest for shhoting inside the forest?  Would the Fujinon 50 mm f3.5 be fast enough for the light?  Maybe I should be asking if the 100S has a sensor ok for the light stopped down to 5.6 or even 8 if I want the trunk and canopy both sharp. It looks like, for "macro" subjects, I...

I guess I'll need to start being mindful about whether there's a motor on the lens when I shop for old, used lenses. I may add a couple lights before I get the body.  Have there been any major changes to CLS from what little I remember from trying to learn about off camera flash 5 years ago with my D2Hs? Speaking of, and feel free to assume I'm pretty new, besides continuing to shoot manual mode and bringing my tripod when I'm shooting at night, are there any things I can work on with my old...

I'd like to illuminate a frozen waterfall (one or more of a series of 1 - 3' cascades from a creek about 3' wide) with 3 different colors (red, green and blue) from 3 different angles.  I'd like to see the different colored reflections from the ice, but not have an overall color cast to the shot. Right now I have a Nikon D2Hs body and a Yongnuo YN-560 speedlight.  I plan to have a more modern body, maybe a Z6, by the time I do this shoot. The closest thing I've done in the past is to use a 6...

These two setups are similarly priced on the used market.  How do they compare? (I'm making a purchase in February.  Currently using D2Hs.  I think right now medium format is in the "*can* but should?" category financially but maybe in a year after the used market depreciates more and more people buy Fuji / sell older Phase One backs.)

I'm planning to upgrade my body to a D4s in a few months but I *might* be able to purchase a lens or two from the used market in the meantime.  Will my current D2Hs be able to control aperture on a G lens?

There is probably a very simple answer to this, so I apologize for wasting everyone's time but: Went old-school for fun and picked up a D2H. Liking the images, but there's a noticeable spot in every frame so I've thought to clean it's sensor manually. I lock up the mirror and get met with another buffer. I've cleaned Nikon sensors many times on the D90 and D700 and never ran into this before. I noticed the same happens with my D800E. I'm sure it's a very simple reason, but how do I get this...

Just got fun, I snagged a used D2H for a pittance. After a quick Google search I am unable to tell if it is compatible with UDMA 7 compact flash cards. If you have the answer to this, please advise. Now, back to your D850 and mirrorless threads!

I won a Nikon D2H with 565K shutters for next to nothing on eBay. After I sell the lens that comes with me, it will literally cost me $5. I tried to put in my Nikon SB-800 flash unit into the flash hot-shoe, and it looks like it is bent as it won't slide in. What should I do? Thanks!

Wondered if I could ask some advice about sensor cleaning on Nikon D3. i have limited knowledge on this subject. I recently purchased a used D3 to add to the D2H I purchased new 15 years ago. It is in excellent condition and has only 6000 shutter activations. The D3 is fantastic and I can see why it gets rave reviews. As a precaution I put it into my local Nikon approved service centre for a sensor clean and was told that it was quite dusty and that a small speck of dirt remained near the low...
