Hello I'm looking for some advice from those with experience of the above two lenses. I've got a Fuji XT-1 with the above two lenses plus the 56mm f/1.2. I use this camera for portrait photography but I've been thinking about my backpacking and hiking trips recently. I keep running into some beautiful locations armed with just the iPhone and a Sony RX100. But I feel leaving my XT-1 at home is such a shame. So I'm considering taking it on future adventures where possible. So my questions are,...
I'm not a pro, but a serious enthusiast looking to finally upgrade to a full frame. I was considering buying a used D3, but that is a fairly old camera if I am not mistaken. Is it still worth buying used? I can't afford a lot of the newer models, unfortunately. I'd like to stay in the $800-$1,300 price range. Is the D3S worth buying, or should I just go for a used D750? I like the FPS and the build of the D3/D3S, but it seems like the D750 may be a more versatile camera? I shoot mainly...
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...
Hello! Im interested in getting a couple of extension tubes for my Nikon 105mm f2.8 VR lens that I use with a Nikon D3 for macro. I have a few questions whenever you get a chance: 1. If I were to get non-electronic tubes would it be possible to set the aperture on a G type lens (no physical aperture ring)? I heard there was a trick to doing it but can't remember what it is. 2. I am concerned that the Kenko type extension tubes are a little on the flimsy side and was wondering what you thought...
Hello, I have an old and trusty D2h and recently acquired a Sandisk 16gb Extreme Pro card. To my surprise the D2h won't work with the card. This is the only card the D2h is having problems with. As far as I know the D2h works with 16gb cards. Can anyone confirm this? The 16gb card will work with the D3 and D3s, so it seams the card is fine. The D2h works with other cards, so it will also seem the D2h is fine. Any ideas? Thanks. --There's not 2 but 3 sides to every story. Theirs, yours, and...
Hello, I noticed that the metering button on my D3 is finicky and requires a little more to turn than it should. It is also wanting to stay in Matrix metering even if turned to spot or center weighed. It takes a little messing with it before you can get it just right and manage to get it to "stay" at the setting you need it at. I went ahead and programmed another button so that the camera will go to spot metering when I need it. So selector switch stays in Matrix, and instead of messing with...

Hi! I have a NEX-6 and an a99v. Both are very good for most things. but low light high ISO is not one of those things. How is the D3 compared to modern mirrorless like a6300, a6500, a7 Mk2 etc in terms of AF speed and accuracy in low light and also noise levels at high ISO. I'm talking about shots at sunset or lower light levels. I will not climb mountains or walk around for the whole day with this kit so weight is not a high priority. Technical quality with 12MP will be plenty good enough...

Being a hardware design engineer i cannot imagine the reason that Nikon could not switch the motor type in some new lenses (AF-P type) and not keep compatibility with older cameras. I am not familiar with the electrical connections they use in the mount, but i assume they use a few pins (4 maybe) to keep compatibility with AF type lenses where the lens just reports focal length to the camera. For driving the focus motor and VR they must use at least two pins to power the lens and at least two...
Hello everyone, I have not done much macro photography but the little I have done I really enjoy. I use a Nikkor 105mm f/2.8 VR and have noticed on occasion that I would like to get in a bit closer. I wasn't sure what (if any) the disadvantages or compromises would be in using extension tubes and which type and spec tube(s) to get. Any input you could give me would be most appreciated. Thanks so much for your time and expertise. I shoot with a D3 and D300. best to you, Rick
