Hi there, I just purchased the above lens for my Nikon D300s and the auto-focus won't work despite me switching on all the right settings.  From my research it looks like it is supposed to work with the D300s, which has a built-in motor. Ken Rockwell wrote an article on this lens and according to him the AF should work with my camera.  The retailer I bought it from is saying that because my D300 is "entry level" it does not have a motor hence why the auto-focus won't work. But I am pretty...

Hi Mates, I'm in lookout for a decent camera bag. Stumbled across 1) Lowepro Fastpack 250 AWii 2) Manfrotto MB MA-TL Advanced Backpack 3) Tamrac Corona 26  Now, my needs suit up for the above models, BUT, i would appreciate users reviews. So that i can fix up on any one of them. These 3 come up in the same budget, here in India. I carry my D300s + 18-200 + 50mm + 15in Laptop pretty much always. For the while im stuffing them all into my Laptop Bag, and its pretty uncomfortable. I wish to...

Hi all, I am currently using a D300s body with the following portfolio of lenses: Sigma 10-20mm/3.5 DC/DX Sigma 17-50mm/2.8 DC/DX Sigma 105mm/2.8 macro DG/FX Sigma 70-200mm/2.8 DG/FX Nikon 200-500mm/2.8 DG/FX Now I'm planning to dive into the wild world of full frame, most probably a D750, and selling the D300s. My two Sigmas 10-20mm & 17-50mm are suited for DX bodies and give me excellent results (after some fine tuning by Sigma), but I would like to retain them for now for use with the...

Hello photographers!    I have been nerding out on digital cameras for a while and I wanted to ask this question.  What would you recommend for someone looking to buy their first DSLR?  The catch is, it has to be Nikon and used.  Here is my reasoning.  I stopped into a local shop and had a very helpful person tell me I would be better off getting a good used camera and spend the extra money on good lenses rather than get a kit and get some mediocre lenses.  I liked this helpful person and...

I just moved to a d7200 from d300s (couldn't justify they extra $1000 for d500). I have set up BBAF on the d7200 using the AFL/AEL button as is typical. However, I notice that pressing the new AF-ON button also seems to initiate the VR on my lens whereas with the d300s VR was initiated with a half shutter press. Is this typical and can this be changed on the d7200 or should I just get used to VR being initiated with the AF-ON button. Thanks and Cheers, Gabriel

Hi to everyone! :) I'm (or was) a long time D300s user and now, finally, it's time to upgrade to the D500. Lenses I used were the 16-85 and a 70-300 VR, plus the 50 1.8D. Now, I sold the 16-85 and my D300s in order to buy the D500. My credit card will suffer regarding the buying of lenses. :) I'm not a gearhead and do not keep track on what's newest and bestest, so the question I'd like to ask is: can anyone recommend lenses similar to the ones I used, and that can keep up with the D500's...

I just purchased a used D300s, after testing the camera with both CF & SD cards, the camera cannot DELETE or FORMAT either of them.  Anybody can advise what have I done wrong, or it is the defect of the camera.  Thank you. --bobkwl

I've been experimenting with single point, D25, and today Group AF.  Today I was mostly shooting Group AF and subjects were osprey and great blue heron in flight.  Group AF has four focus points in the viewfinder.  Sometimes I can center the bird in the blank space inside the four focus points.  Am I better off doing it this way or putting one of the four focus points on the bird. On a general note, the D500 auto focus seems to be clearly a step up from my D300S and D7200.  I even get some...

My D300s could be set to Commander Mode and fire my SB700 flash remotely. I am very confused as to how to fire the flash or the shutter remotely on my new D500. I do not understand just what I need to get to do this with my SB700 or any flash without buying that new expensive radio controlled flash from Nikon and I don't want to have to have a big clunky flash sitting in the hot shoe just to fire my remote unit. Ideally, I would like something that would sit in the hot shoe and be as...

I have a 17-55mm Nikkor which i used in combination with my D300s. A perfect couple. Hardly no AF tuning necessary. Very sharp. Now I also own a D7200. This camera "listens" quite good to all of my lenses, especially the primes. But I really struggle with my 17-55mm. Measuring the AF deviation with the DotTune method shows these values of back- and frontfocus corrections: 17mm = +824mm = +328mm = +635mm = +145mm = -4 !55mm = +3 If I try to figure it out with the aid of Focus-chart, camera 45...
