I just got this camera not too long ago (the 21st I think) and I already had a few questions that have all been answered and I think that is the resolve in terms of those questions, thank you all for the help in that thread too! But another issue has become apparent as time goes on with this camera, and that is the lack of ability to be able to catch proper focus at 1.8. This being said there are a few things that I have to say before blaming the camera, first, I am not sure what the best way...

Hello everyone,  I am not sure if this is the place that I should post this question but I thought that since it is about one of the cameras in this thread it should not be too far off. I just got the Nikon D800E not too long ago and have found a few problems, the first being that the SD card slot has to be depressed far below where any of the other Nikons that I have go just to get the SD card to lock in, and it takes a lot of force at that which means that I am not going to be able to take...

Hey gang,  I have a doozie of a question for you. My first Nikon since the D80, I'm usually shooting on Canon 1D II, 20d, T3i.   So in the wait to get funds to buy a Nikon lens I may have came across a most wonderful discovery... NOTHING!   Has anyone had any luck with the Adaptall 2 mounts on D7000's.  I know there's new ones that have the AI chip but I'm trying to use an original and I get this strange messed experience. I have an Adaptall Lens mount for 3 lenses, however the lens mount is...

I just received a D700 I bought on eBay.  It has between 5,000-6,000 clicks and is in mint condition. I'm checking it for any problems and so far, so good. But I am wondering about its rear multi selector. I only have a D200 to compare it with. The D700 multi selector sticks out more and is, for lack of a better term,  a bit more "sloppy" than the D200.  Is that normal for the D700? It's something I noticed immediately when I was checking the camera the first time. (The exterior design of the...

I have bought a Sony Alpha Nex 6 and I would like to use my older lenses used with Nikon D80 body. There are a couple of criterias to be filled in: a) the aperture and shutter should work both automatic and manualb) autofocus should also work both automatic and manual* One of the products I have found is Commlite CM-ENF-E1. Does this meet both criterias? If there are more working alternatives available, I am happy to receive information. *Examples of objectives in use:Tokina SD 12-24 F4 (IF)...

I have a Nikon D80 with an 18-200 vr lens and a 16-85 vr lens.   I am not real happy with the sharpness of the 18-200 at the long end, but the 16-85 seems pretty good across tge range.  I am planning a trip next summer to some national parks and would like to upgrade for better landscape and wildlife shots.  Assuming I only have $1500 to spend, should I upgrade the body to a D7200 or go for a 70-200 f4 vr2 lens?

Recently I updated my D80 to a D3300, shedding features for lighter weight and less bulk. Mostly I don't miss the other features except for one thing: with the D3300 the button that changes exposure compensation in P,S,A modes is the same button that changes aperture in M mode, whereas they were different buttons/dials on the D80. This has tripped me up numerous times when I'll be shooting in aperture priority with exposure compensation set to -.3 or -.7 and then switch to manual, forgetting...

Forgive me, this may be a little long winded. Skip to the end for the short question if you want.Hello, I've been using the Sigma 28-70 EX DG f2.8 D as my main standard zoom now for nearly 10 years. I am not here to defend it or call it a great lens, I know the stigmas associated with Sigma. What I consider it to have been for me personally is a fantastic gateway lens. I never took real advantage of it vs the Nikon 35-70 f3.3-4.5 I had prior to it. I just operated under the "bigger lens...

Hello everyone.  I undertook resolving the classic issue on the Nikon D80 of the plastic stub wearing down on the aperture control unit gear.  I fixed the gear and felt confident that I could get the camera back together .... That is, until I found two pieces I had no idea where they went! Can anyone help?  Here is a picture below..  Thank you very much!

Hello, I have a theoretical question that has arisen whilst researching the various filter holders on the market. I have a Nikon D80, with a cropped sensor, and will soon be buying a wide angle DX lens to suit. This will mean I will also need to replace my current filter holder and filters to take advantage of the wider view. So, the question is: if a particular filter holder will allow a certain maximum viewing angle on a full frame camera before causing light problems at the edge of the...
