Hi folks, currently I shoot with D700 with dying shutter and mirror mechanism (almost 200K actuations)  and I look towards K-1 as my next camera:) Can those of you which have both make a side by side comparison of viewfinders? Which camera has brighter one? In my opinion d700 viewfinder is pretty dark. I shoot only f1.4 primes and man, its dark. A friend of mine has got Sony a900 and even when Sony got mounted a Zeiss f2.8 zoom the viewfinder in the a900 was so much brighter. Just couldn't...

I had the opportunity to buy a used Sigma 300mm 2.8 APO EX DG HSM lens. Optics were fine, rendered sharp images. Everything was fine for a week, then I noticed that while under Autofocus-C on my Nkion D700 body (whether using the AF-On or shutter button), after about 4-5 seconds of continuous autofocusing, the lens would stop focusing and lock the aperture down to f32 for as long as the in-viewfinder display is illuminated (mine is set for 4 seconds). After the display turns off, I can press...

Hi guys, I just bought my D800 and am disappointed to find that my Nikkor-P Auto 105mm f/2.5 manual lens (Probably made somewhere between 1950-1970) does not work with the D800 - it can mount without snagging anything, but gives the blinking ERR message only after I release the shutter. This lens has worked perfectly and beautifully on my D7100, with no problems. Since this is a Pre-AI lens, it does not have any auto capabilities and the "Set to minimum aperture" advice does not apply to...

Much as I loved my Nikon D700 it was getting too heavy to lug everywhere, so I bought a little Fuji X1-T. The lens that was generally on the Nikon was the AF-S NIKKOR 24-120mm f/4G ED VR Lens, and I'd love to be able to use it on the Fuji. I've never played with adapters before but can't find a lens that gives me what the 24-120 does. I've seen a few adapters, at varying prices with varying claims about what they will do. I'd really appreciate some advice about what adapter will give me the...

Hello,  I have just purchased a Nikkor 20-35 f2.8 D lens for use with my D700, the problem is when looking at the exif info with a Apples Aperture 3 it shows up as a Tokina AT-X 20-35 lens !    is this an internal chip fault with the lens or Aperture's reading of the lens? Regards Davy

I just got a D700 whose firmware still hasn't been upgraded (still on 1.01 I believe) and I want to buy a 16gb or 32gb CF card for it but I wanted to know if I am going to need to buy a smaller CF card like an 8gb first in order to update the firmware since I read the 16/32 cards are still not supported on this firmware. Thank you

I have searched for alternative solutions to the Nikon EN-EL 4a battery with special BL-3 battery cover and the very expensive special Nikon Li-ion charger MH-21. All this to hit the 8fps spot on a recently acquired D700. I have come up with the following possible solution: It is possible to obtain AA sized Li-ion 3.7v 800mAh batteries with exactly the same form factor (14mm diameter, 50mm) as a normal AA sized battery. Three of these in the MB-D10 AA battery tray in series would total 11.1v...

I did do a search for my question but did not find my answer..... So..... here is my question. How much better is the autofocus speed/accuracy and the hi iso in low light of the D750 vs. the D700. I have had my D700 since 2009 and am thinking about replacing it with the D750? Also, will I regret the switch, since the D700 is simply a tank compared to the D750? Thank you all in advance.

I am an elementary school teacher and need a camera to take pictures of the kids in action throughout the school day. I used my iPhone 6 for this, which worked great, but our school has a new policy that does not allow teachers to have iPhones out while with the children. I've checked out some relatively new point and shoot digital cameras, such as the Nikon Coolpix S7000 16 Mega pixels, 20x optical zoom. According to reviews, These cameras don't perform well in low light settings. I need a...

I sold my D700 and lenses a couple of years ago, in favour of a Panasonice GH4 plus lenses. I so much like to use a camera at waist level, and sometimes below, that the lack of even a tilting mirror was a big downside to the D700. While the GH4 is an excellent camera, there are times when I really miss the something extra I saw in the best D700 images. When the D750 came out a couple of months later, I regretted selling the Nikon lenses, but too late. Now I'm considering adding either a...
