Hi, I'm trying to upgrade from a d5100 and own about 5 Nikon lenses. Is it better to just upgrade to a d7200 or move onto a mirrorless?

I have D5100 and Sigma 17-50 2.8, 50 1.8G, Nikkor 18-200 VR. I have been using D5100 for 4 years. I do a lot of trekking and traveling. Camera is excellent in day light situations but it's very much limiting me in low light. I am getting too much noise even if I boost to 800 or 1600. Also 11 focal points are limiting my focusing capability. I want to upgrade my camera. I have D7200 and D750 in my mind. About money, I can afford to get a used D750. Any thoughts would help me in deciding.

I’ve had both of these products for a while, but I recently noticed that the lens wouldn’t focus anymore. It seems to be fixed at 55mm. Any solutions?

Hi, I am a fire investigator and use a D5100 for my scene photos.  Bulk and weight are considerations as I work in fire scenes.  I need a low profile compact flash for my camera.  My pop-up flash does ok most of the time, but I need a bit more light.  I need something very budget friendly and be as small as possible.  I would appreciate any suggestions.  Btw, I am a novice at camera lengo, so please excuse my seemingly simplistic approach to my needs.  thanks!!!

Hi, I think I killed my D5100. LCD had defect, bought new LCD and replaced it. Now when I turn On the camera I get a blank LCD and viewfinder displays blinking F -  -, [-E-] and blinking focus confirmation dot. Here's what happen: Because I didn't want do risk removing the tiny connector on the LCD board I just detached both LCD flex connectors and detached the pcb board from the old LCD and put the new LCD. Because the pcb board is glued to the back of the old LCD, I had to use something...

I have a Nikon D5100 with the kit lens and a Nikkor 55-200 zoom. Both take 52mm filters. In the future I'd like to get a prime 50mm lens, the one I'm looking at takes a 58mm filter. I'm fairly new and want to start playing around with long exposure photos, so I've been looking to buy a good (but not great/expensive) filter, in particular an ND10 (or ND1000, still kind of fuzzy on naming schemes). Since I would have two different filter sizes and don't want to buy two different sized filters,...

Hi guys, I wondered if I may ask a question,, one of my "passions" is flower photography, a couple of examples below,, all taken with compact cameras of one kind or another but I'd like to get closer & sharper results so am thinking of investing in a "proper" set up. Nearly all my shots are indoors tripod mounted so I suppose camera size is not too important although I'm not looking to have anything too heavy and had thought of a used Nikon D5100 or D5300, or maybe a micro 4/3rd set...

I want to take a few portraits of my family with the D5100.  Do you recommend the 18-55 DX G lens or 18-200 VR II for best results?  Of course, the VR II is at least a decade newer.  I have both lenses but have only used the 18-200 mainly outdoors.  I did take some interior shots of cathedrals with it and was very impressed with the images it produced in low-light conditions. I would search for previous posts but don't see any articles comparing these two lenses. Any advice would be appreciated.
