I pulled the trigger on one and just received it.  I have the AF 180mm f2.8 but wanted more versatility. I read about the complaints in reviews about AF speed. I'm not a sports photographer, occasionally do birds but not necessarily in flight. I notice the focus limiter and that may help in certain situations. The 180mm doesn't have that. And I wonder whether newer bodies focus faster with screw type AF.  First used AF lenses on a D200, now I have a D700 and D610. I swear I'm going to sell...

I bought a used D610 a month or two ago. I haven't shot any raw with it yet. I'm at a point where I need to decide how I want to edit raws, in the rare cases I need to. I have an old version of DxO Optics Pro that I think still works. I have two questions then on the Nikon software: Is it free for Nikon users? If so, is it intuitive to learn? If not, is it worth purchasing, or would I be better off with a new version of DxO or something else? I just went and had a look on nikonusa.com and...

Is this amount of vignetting OK? I recently purchased a used Nikon D610 along with a used Nikon 24-85mm VR. After a bit of shooting today, I noticed that this lens seems to have some pretty extreme vignetting. It is also oddly skewed to one side, which makes me think it's a mechanical issue. Admittedly this was shot at 24mm f/3.5, but is this lens really that bad? I should also note that this was taken with the lens hood off and no filter on. Should I consider returning it? In a bright scene...

Hi! I was just moments ago making photo of my cat. It was cutely lying in carpet of living room and making faces (SIC!). First camera that hit my hand was Nikon D610 with Sigma 85/1.4. That combination is capable for making very good photos. I know, I have managed to do so. Altering settings took some time, as I have used other gear more last weeks (or perhaps months). And that is one of D610's not so good points: it's pretty complicated and cluncky for me, amongst my photo gear. But luckily...

This just happened with my D610. Never happened before but happened twice with my D500 since getting it a couple of months ago. I set my camera by my side on my sling strap. Power on and in M. I lift it to take a shot and it reads: x 200. I try to raise the shutter speed and it goes down to bulb instead of up.  In A it acts normally. Online it says to change shutter speed. That doesn't work. Turn camera on and off. No help. Factory reset doesn't work. That works with the D500. Probably a...

My trusty old AF Nikkor 70-300/4.5-5.6 pumper just crapped out on me. Focusing mechanics locked up tight. Zoom would occasionally jam up on me too. I see the highest rated Nikkor 70-300 for FX is $600 new and around $440 used. That's more than I want to spend. Requirements: Budget ±$300 AF and VR Reasonably sharp It doesn't have to be perfect, but I don't want a long end that is garbage, either. $300 budget, +/-. Does/did Tokina make anything like this? I always loved Tokina optics. My last...

I have a D610 I am preparing for sale; I was hoping to do a reset of the camera to the state it was in when I first unboxed it.  I understand that there are many posts about "factory reset" but I think it is being confused with "two button reset" which just resets shooting options (like Image Quality) ;  the "two button reset" doesn't affect SETUP MENU customizations (like Copyright information) or SHOOTING MENU (like File naming), U1/2 settings, button assignments, etc.  Is there some easy...

Wondering if any Z6II or Z7II owners could help me understand what the max fps slideshow is like, as unfortunately I'm in a fairly remote place and can't test for myself. Looking to get either of these cameras primarily for sports and wildlife, and while I know the D500/D850 is better for that I also want to get in on some of those new Z lenses. I don't expect the Z6II or Z7II to be perfect for fast action, but is the max fps is at least usable? Or do you find yourself using the 5.5 fps mode...

Hello, I'm considering changing focusing screen on my Nikon DF and maybe on my D610 too.I went on the focusingscreen website but I don't know how to choose. Does anybody has an experience with them ? I'm looking for the right reference to make manual focus easier, especially with my Voigt trilogy: 20, 40 and 58mm BUT I don't want to interfere with AF capabilities since I also use AF-S G lenses. I won't do it if it makes my AF lenses unreliable. I'm also a bit worry about installation, reading...

Hello, I'm a bit concerned about my D610. Last week, I noticed an obvious front focusing when taking pictures of buildings near infinity (about 100-150 meters). with the following lenses: 50mm f/1,4 G + 85mm f/1, 8 G + Tokina 100mm f/2,8.Seems fine with my wider lenses. Focusing a bit closer (30-50m) gave me the same front focusing issue. I was able to fix it by calibrating the lenses between + 10 and + 15. Today I tested with aligned batteries and a hand-made calibration chart.At short to...
