Sometime in the coming year I plan a trip to Tanzania to photograph wildlife. My present equipment I think is Ok for this trip however I probably could use more reach. What I plan to bring along is my rugged D3 with the following lenses: 28mm f/1.8 , 24-120mm VR, 70-200mm VR11, AFS 80-400mm VR11. My questions is whether I should purchase a new or used DX camera such as the D7100 or 7200 which will give me 600mm on my AFS 80-400 or spend the extra $$ and purchase a D810. The technical...
I have the Auto ISO on and the max. ISO to MAX, and the shutter speed to Auto. I normally shoot Aperture preferred. I believe, in my D3 (which didn't have the Auto shutter speed function, just the min. shutter speed). it would maximize the shutter speed before bumping the ISO up. In my D800, the shutter speed doesn't seem to go down to the max. tolerable speed before it bumps up the ISO. In the following 1st picture (shot with the 35-70mm f/2.8D), the focal length was 58mm and I set the...
Hi all, Reaching out to all those of you how have mated the 35mm AF-D (f/2) to the current gen of FX cameras (D6XX, D7XX, D8XX, D3(x), D4(x)) Would be curious to know how easy you find it to focus this lens manually. I have a heck of time using my 24mm f/2.8 AI for people pictures, so was wondering how much of a difference the 11mm 'step up' makes. I do realize this lens will AF without trouble...but considering there's no manual override when the lens is in AF mode, I suppose what I'm...
I listed my D3 and D3x on Craigslist. I received at least 2 inquiries that are, no doubt in my mind, scams. They all wanted to pay a higher price to ship the camera. They both wanted my PayPal account so to deposit money there. How do they get money into PayPal to make me believe that they have fully paid? Do they just claim item not received and get their money back later?

I have noticed that when I look through my view finder to take a photo my meter is not there. I see it on the outside of my camera where my screen is at but when I look through the lens it is not there. I have tried it all modes but it's not showing up. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
I have a wonderful 600mm f4 ED IF AiS manual focus that I unfortunately only get a chance to use now and then - bought used nearly nine years ago for a trip to Alaska. I keep it in its trunk case and we are a non-smoking family. ( and I also have a modified Teleconverter 1.4 AF I use with it to help me get focus) I want to have it 'cleaned' - not that there are any significant 'issues' , just that I feel the images can be sharper/clearer - becase I myself just got a new pair of glasses, and I...
As I damaged the low pass filter on my D3 the insurance company have given me the money to buy a D4s, nice... :) As I really don't like the idea of an XQD card, its cost and having to buy a reader is it possible to transfer the images from the D4s to my computer via cable connection? I've never had to do this with the D3 as I have a card reader for CF cards. I must admit that the XQD card 'thing' is almost a 'deal breaker' with me but if I can transfer files using a cable I'd be happy to get...
