I start another question thread for the XF 10-24 to avoid cluttering up the XF 18-55 vs Sony 16-70 thread. Anyway, I definitely need an UWA. The XF 10-24 has been tested by e g Ken Rockwell and Imaging Resources with stellar results. It seems everything is great and there is no distortion. Only negative seems to be price. Now, the Nikon 10-24 also seems like a good choice. And the Sony 10-18 generally gets good reviews. Can anyone describe their experiences with either of these lenses? The...

Can anybody give me an opinion of the condition a DSLR body usually is with a 'G' rating at Adorama?  I want a backup camera for my D3400 that can use some older AF-D lenses I've got.  A Nikon D300S in G condition at Adorama is what I'm looking at.  I don't care if it's ugly, I just want it fully functional with some life left to it.   I'm looking to find out if anyone has purchased a 'G' rated DSLR body and what they thought of it.

my friends 24-70 non VR , took an ever so small tumble from the coffee table to the  carpeted floor. There is no sign whatsoever of any bump or dent or scratch . He doesn't want to try and force it to zoom ,, it almost feels like is locked. Any  suggestions before sending it for repair? . I would have thought such a rugged lens would have been able to withstand that. My d300s  with a plastic mount 18 - 105 survived a fall from my truck floor to the pavement with no consequence . Anyone have a...

At the risk of getting flamed here... I am considering purchasing a second body so that I don't have to change lenses so often. I currently own a d7000, which I actually like quite a bit.  The issue is that I am also thinking about getting a second body that is "tough" like possibly a d500. I wan't something that I can take to the beach and out on adventures in woods that I don't have to worry about too much. Granted, a bigger view finder, better AF and bigger buffer are also kind of...

My aging D300s has been my go-to camera for years with good reason.  Lately, however, it seems like detail is lacking/resolution is poorer. I noticed it recently when taking strong telephoto shots of small birds at a feeder.  (250mm @ 25ft)  In the past my shots have been very sharp.....the latest ones blur the fine details of the feathers.   I've tried 2 different, well proven lenses. I tried setting a yardstick at an angle to see where focus point actually is and it was inconclusive.  Focus...

Have been using CNX 2 with with XP for years ,most recently offline and machine used exclusively for photo editing . It became necessary to reformat . I reinstalled my legal CNX2 disc which takes me to ver.2.0.0. Then tried to install downloaded upgrade which I saved prior reformat. Won't install as it needs newer 2.3.0 to work from. Is there a fix to get 2.0.0 to open nef files from my D300s ? Any help would be appreciated. Dave

Hello, I guess I'm new to photography.  I mainly take pictures of aircraft.  I currently use a Nikon Coolpix B500.  I'm thinking about buying a DSLR.  Here's what I'm thinking about getting: Nikon D300 Nikon D300s possibly Nikon D700 (I'll have to save up) Now just out of curiosity, the price for the D700 is $565 on ebay.  I saw one on Amazon for $400.  I also saw a D800 on Amazon for $400.  Both were listed on Amazon as "like new".  Should I trust that?  I'm skeptical.  It seems too good to...

Here's a list of my equipment that I use for regular photography: Nikon D40x, Nikon D90, Nikon D300s, Nikon 18-55 VR, Nikon 18-105 VR, Nikon 70-200 f/2.8, Canon G7X Mk ll, GoPro Hero 4 Silver. 1) Where is the Milky Way in the sky of southwest Iowa about 9 pm ? 2) If using one of my DSLRs which lens would be best for first tries at night photos or a night lapse of the Milky Way ? 3) The G7X Mk ll has a night lapse video feature that I have used once. It works well but is limited to about 10-15...

Hi guys, I have a Nikon D300S. I've searched this topic and I think my charger is compatible in Australia (230V 50Hz). However, when I look at the charger info, it has two pieces of information that are confusing to me. Here's a screenshot of the charger's information: http://imgur.com/a/Pvx9n In one section , it says: INPUT: 120V~60Hz And the other section under Foreign, it says: INPUT 100-240V~50-60Hz. I don't understand why there are two sections for this. Will it work in Australia? If it...
