Hello! For 2 years i had the Nikon d5100 kit 18-55 and use it for my trips. I sell the Nikon D5100 kit because i wanna buy the Sony A6000! I take photos for trips and all - around! Walks - birthdays and someting like this. I am not professional! My results from the Nikon D5100 kit its very nice for me! My big question is: With the Sony A6000 kit lens can i have the same results with the Nikon D5100 kit lens ? I know my question is strange but if you understanding me i sell the Nikon D5100 and...

I own the d5100 and am going to purchase the d750. I'm looking for a high quality lens that will be useful for both cameras. Im considering a 10 to 20mm 2.8 from tokina. Any ideas or recommendations.  I plan on shooting landscapes and night photography with this lens.

Hi, Looking at various used Speedlights for the like new D5100 I bought recently on ebay. First looked at dirt-cheap used SB600's. Leaning now towards a used SB800 after a little bit of reading. Or nothing at all. Unclear about flash xSync compatibility issues which might make the SB800 an unnecessary over-reach for a D5100 for my particular interests. Can these more recent Speedlights even be used with a D5100 when the shutter speed is above 1/180s? (or 1/200s?) Could I use it for moving...

I have been shooting with an infrared converted D5100 for like 4 years now. The Nikon 18-70 3.5-4.5 DX and 16-35 f4 lenses that I have used with the camera have performed great - no hotspots. I recently converted a D800 camera to infrared using a 665nm filter conversion. The 16-35 works great on this camera as well. So far I have also tried a 50mm 1.8g, 50mm 1.4d, 24-70 f2.8g, 85mm 1.8g, and 70-200 f4 vr. The 70-200 also works well with no hotspots. All of my "normal" focal length options...

I was planning to buy a 2nd hand camera (since I really lack the funds to buy a new one), and I decided that the d5100 would be perfect for my budget. However, I saw a good sony a57 deal online, and I'm very unfamiliar with sony's slt line up. I mainly plan on shooting stills, portraits, and night photography. I know that there is loss of light of around 1/2 stop in slt cameras. How much does this affect the cameras performance? Which one should I get?  Thank you

Recently I scored a used D5100 for next to nothing with only 6,700 clicks in truly "Like New" condition. I'd like to get a super wide angle lens to go with it. Which SWA AF lenses have been most typically recommended as the best among the compatible DX options from Nikon, Sigma, Tamron, and Tokina? I realize this subject may be kind of stale to many of you, as times have moved on from the D3100-D5100-D7100 era, so the short answer is fine! Also, I am disappointed to learn the Nikon 10-20 VR...

Hi, I'm planning to buy a 2nd hand camera since I can't really afford the new ones, and I've narrowed my choice down for my budget between the sony nex 5n and the nikon d5100. I know there has been a thread about it before, but it was a long time ago where the more extensive lens collection and better quality lens would make the nikon d5100 a better choice. However, there are more options for sony lenses now, and their quality got better. With that, which one would be better? Thank you

I'm looking for the cheapest possible suggestions for acceptable 500mm lenses. I'm aware that options such as mirror lenses, those long, typcially fixed f8 lenses from companies like Opteka, and teleconverters are frowned upon in forums like this. But, living in Montana, I'm desperate to photograph some of the abundant wildlife that can be found in nearby wilderness areas. I recently bought a used Nikon D5100 and Tamron 70-300mm zoom and have been researching options to extend range. So,...
