Hi,  I can I get opinions on this please - and I'm sure there will be some! I recently managed to lose my D3S and thanks to new for old insurance now have the money to buy a D5! So, while looking at the best deals I've found that the D5 with two XQD slots retails at between £5100 and £5500 in UK shops but from online retailers at around £4500. The online retailers all include postage, any import fees, etc, etc so the only difference I can see is that with the online retailer I'm probably...

Picked up a used D3s and wondering if anybody has shot with the sigma OS 70-200 on this for indoor sport. I know the VrII is probably the one to go for and a match for the camera but curious if anybody has the sigma on their D3s. Seem to have read all the reviews and seems mixed about the Original VR and not being designed for FX. Actual user opinions appreciated. Thanks.

I noticed yesterday that the front dial started making a slight 'grinding'/friction sound when changing the Aperture (while installing FW 3 for the Techart Adapter). The rear dial is totally quiet and moves easily. Ages ago my D3S had the front dial become hard to turn but after quite a bit of use it went back to normal. The D3S had been used in really tough conditions, not so for the a7II. I do live in a very dusty environment but the Monsoon has started so no dust but high humidity and...

Okay, I have never used neither of these two cameras so I can't complain.  What i do know is that the D3s has the older 12MP so it must have the same output look as the D700/D300. Does anyone have side by side skin tones comparisons?   Is there a really big difference? I really really like the body of the updated D4.  The grip is a little deeper and a bit nicer to hold, oh, and the AF joysticks, I just loved that so much. I know lot's and lot's of us like the output look of the older models...

I have started to do more events and weddings recently and will continue to do so. The largest prints I will be making are mainly 15 X 11.5". I just did a wedding a few weeks ago with my 16MP fuji gear and the prints came out simply beautiful. Even several years ago I did my sister's wedding with the nikon D200 and the pictures came out pretty darn decent on print. The funny thing is that on my monitor they don't look very good, but on print they looked very nice. Not as good as the fuji...

Help! My Nikon D3S is focusing on the background...you can see in this picture, that it is focusing on the background to the right behind the family. The family is all fuzzy, but the background is clear. What is happening? Is it a lens thing or a camera thing? I used a Tamron 16-28 on this image. But when I changed my lens to a 50mm during the reception, it focused fine. What is going on and can I fix this in PHotoshop?

Anybody try a Nikon D3s & bowen/calumet 750r Travelites with pocketwizard hypersync feature? I dare not go out and buy MiniTT1 or FlexTT5 unit without having an idea what results I'd be getting if any with my existing lights. I've seen stuff on the pocketwizard website, but the tests were made with paul c buff lights, nothing with bowen. Just hoping someone has had experience with the monolights I've got. Thanks. --There's not 2 but 3 sides to every story. Theirs, yours, and what really...

I just acquired a used D3S for cheap and am curious about how fast it writes to its CF cards.  I will probably be buying some new CFs for it and don't want to waste money on cards that are more capable (and expensive) then they need to be.  Simply said, at what data rate (write speed) does the card delay the camera in emptying its buffer? --TomNikon D3S, D810, D750, Nikon 1 V3, J5Sony a6000IR, a6300, a5100Oly E-P2IRand Lots-O-Lenses
