I'm looking for a general purpose everyday lens for a new D850. I'm just a hobbyist and have never really looked at FX lenses. I would like to keep the price around the 500 GBP mark (maybe a bit more) as most of the money is going on the camera. I'll start saving again. :-) I want sharpness and good contrast Basically just a nice picture. I considered the 24-70 but big and heavy and expensive, also i'm getting old. I was thinking that the Nikon 35mm f1.8 G ED AF-S Nikkor Lensbut it doesn't...

Hello everyone, I have a godox AD600-BM, coupled with X1T-N, shooting with Nikon D750. I have a strange problem. When I choose auto fp(both 1/200 and 1/250) in my nikon, up to 1/200 the transmitter sends proper signal to the flash unit. But when I increase the shutter speed, it sends the flash to give 4-5 stops lower than what is adjusted on the transmitter. I have tested this with Sekonic 458. This problem only occurs during the shooting, i.e. when I press the shutter to take the photo. When...

Hi, I'm planning an upgrade from D300 to FX, and with that I'll replace my Tokina SD 16-50 F2.8 DX lens by a 24-70 lens. Not fully decided on which brand I'll take, although I'm tending towards the Nikon due to corner sharpness (I'm mainly doing landscapes). One aspect I dislike in my current lens is the (lack of) rigidity of the lens barrel; one can move it sideways as there is a bit of play on it. Not an issue at all with regular shooting, but when attaching a Lee fiter holder, up to 2...

I have an 18-200 DX lens for my D300 and have always loved it.  What is the best 24-300 FX lens I could get for my D600?

I think the D300 that I am thinking of buiyng used can not meter exposure with manual focus lenses mounted. It can only confirm focus. Is this correct? If yes, is there a Nikon body that can indirectly (not automatically) meter exposure with manual unchipped lenses mounted?

I'm asking this question again because it's easier than digging through old posts.  For printing D300 files, how large can one print without having the image degrade?  This includes close up viewing.  I've printed 20" wide and the images still look good.  Can you go to 30" or more?  I'm guessing yes but I thought I'd ask those who've actually doe it.  Thanks.

Whenever I take photos on my EOS D300 and take out the CF, put it in a Sandisk to USB so I can view it, my photos look like https://imgur.com/a/EYZ09   I don't know what it could be and I'd really like an answer since this is my starter camera.
