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'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...
I have read that cameras (in my case Nikon D7000) with a pixel count greater than 12Mpx and superzoom lenses like the Nikon 18-200, Sigma 18-250 and Tamron 18-250/270 will not be as sharp to varying degrees compared to the same lens on a 12Mpx camera. Is this True....? also Would I be better off if I want to use these types of lenses changing the body to say a Nikon D300s I travel a lot and do not wish to change or carry a bunch of lenses. Is the new 18-300 VR ii designed to better match...
Is anyone using or plan on using a screen protector for the their tilt screen? I'm pretty meticulous about my gear and try to make keep it in good shape. I've kept my screen protector on my D300s and screen in spotless. Being that the D500 has touch screen, I figured it was be a good idea as I don't have the funds to keep buying new gear. I've ordered one from Amazon by a company called FoTotech - Quality Tempered precision optical glass Screen Protector for Nikon D5, D500, D4S LCD with...
I got my D500 yesterday so far everything is looking pretty good. One thing I did notice is that the battery life seems to go pretty fast compared to my D300s. On a full charge, I take a few shots review them on the lcd, check back and it's already at 98% and dropping with minimal use...again compared to what I'm use to getting with the D300s. I used 2 batteries to compare...the one that came with the camera and a new spare. Has anyone else experienced this as well? How many shot are you...
…. Hello, I have quite a collection of Ai Ais lenses, some quite exotic and a few AF-S not so exotic, now I switch between systems a lot (3) Micro 4/3rds ,but usually Sigma Merrills mainly for resolution in landscapes. When I use my Nikons D300s and D7100 I see quite a difference in image quality that I can not get my head round. . . . . when I use my beloved legacy lenses on the D7100, OK, they are very good but the image quality I get when using the D300s appears so much better, now I...
