Help guys! I have this weird problem with my Tamron 24-70 2.8 VC on my D7100. The aperture closes just a tiny little bit at 3.2 if switching from 2.8. BUT, it closes perfectly if switching from 3.5 to 3.2. I'm aware of the stucked aperture blades on some of Tamron 24-70s. But i believe that mine does not exhibit that issue because it closes perfectly if from 3.5. I can confirm this with DoF preview. It closes perfectly at 3.5, and 3.2 (if from 3.5) and the next time i pressed the doF preview,...

Hi all you specialists! I am selling my Canon D350 and all its belongings: Tokina 12-24 f4; Sigma 24-70 f2.;Canon 50mm f1.8; Canon 70-300 f4-5.6 is usm; Canon Flashlite 430EX II. All the glass and stuff are too heavy nowadays. I will be backpacking though India soon and I prefer to travel light. I know I might loose some quality sometime/somewhere, but that's OK. I am not taking any shots now as all gear is nicely stored in a cupboard. I focus on mirrorless 4/3 and it ain't easy to make my...

Good day to you all, trying to make up my mind for the next camera, I ask for your valuable opinion. The past: D100, D2h, D2x, D3, D4. Wildlife only, but recently also people, mainly ethnic minorities; I use my gear only when I travel, a new house project has postponed my next trip to March 2017. I just sold the AF-S 500mm f/4D IF-ED II, it was 10 years old, time to replace it, and two D4’s, better decision then keep them inside a Dry Cabinet for the next 18 months. I was considering the D5...

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?

My D3 no longer has a display. Sent to Nikon and they're response is that they no longer manufacture the part (PCB UNIT Part No. 1C999-590-1). Anyone know how to get this camera fixed. I can't believe I have to toss this workhorse.

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!
