I've been following the D300 in 2017 thread in the Pro DX forum with some interest. Reason is that I need a sports machine for my kids with reasonably fast AF but also with very accurate good tracking and reasonable chance of lock on. My beloved Sony a99 Mk1 does not deliver in this department though it is far from hopeless. But it is not a sports machine. Now, here in China, prices are like D300s for $375 or a D700 for $650. DX has the advantage of the nice and expensive Nikon 16-80 and the...

Looking to buy a second camera and don't want to spend too much.  I already have a D750.  DX is fine as my FX lenses will work with it...and it would be nice to use alongside my 750 to get a different view.What suggestions does everyone have?  Want good image quality - that's a must - don't care about WiFi, GPS etc.  Needs to have a good buffer for continuous shooting.  Will consider just about any Nikon so long as the price isn't too high!

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...
