I’ve been shooting Nikon for the past few years. Having previously shot with the D750, D850, and currently the Z6.  Our kids are active in sports and I’ve found the Tamron 70-200 G2 invaluable, particularly for indoor sports where the gym lighting ranges from bad to awful.  I’m about this close to moving over to Sony. Particularly the a7r iii. I miss the crop-ability of the D850, but not the bulk and I love EVF. The a7r iii is in my price range. Most other lenses that I want are affordable as...

Hi everyone, I am new here, my first post. I am having issues with newly bought Sigma 85mm f/1.4 Art lens. The lens was heavily front focusing on the central focus point but even more on the outer points on my Nikon D850. As you assume, calibrating dock didn't help much as calibrating for the central focus point still leaves the front focusing problem on the outer focusing points. I have read about this exact problem from other people, but no solution. So here is my question, before I waste...

I think I might have a bad D850 copy and need a 2nd opinion. I've been shooting the D500 for about 2 years and absolutely love it. My keep rate is 90%+. I took my brand new D850 out and came back with a 0% keep rate. Same settings as my D500, with the exception of the full frame image size on the D850 I thought I might of had front or back focus issues so I did a little test, 1st with live view and then with view finder. I don't think it exhibits front of back focus issues, but the sharpness...

Please help. In Photoshoot menu HDR is shown as ON and this is also displayed in the viewfinder. Pressing the right side of the multi selector moves the ON word from the left side to the right side of the display in the photoshoot display and vice versa.  However I cannot select Off and it continues to display as ON in the Viewfinder.  I have removed the battery in an effort to reset but no luck.

C1 recognizes my camera, takes pictures, loads them into C1 but the "Camera Focus" tool does not work, i.e. it won't focus the camera.  The controls are greyed out. I had the camera set up for back button focus,  I turned that off, still no focus through C1.  Any suggestions appreciated.  D850 works fine if that matters.  Also I have the camera plugged into the USB C port on the Fuji to USB A into desktop.   --Paul Amicucci

Hey DP Reviewers.I recently had my Nikon D850 repaired by an authorized repair shop & now I am noticing lots of noise at fairly low ISO settings. I had a tiny, but distinct purple mark on every single photo taken with my D850. It was not the lens, as the marks would appear despite which lens I used. I tried the camera's own Image Sensor Cleaning from the setup menu, using a dust blower, and bringing the camera for professional sensor cleaning. Nothing worked. I then had the camera repaired...

Just bought the new Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 500mm f/5.6E PF ED VR prime lens to use with the D850 but having trouble calibrating the lens and camera. I usually shoot birds at full range and not sure if it even needs fine tuning.  Any advice appreciated

Hello Nikon and DPReview Community! I have a Sigma 85mm 1.4 Art lens that requires an AF Fine Tuning of +20 on my D850.  I just bought a Tamron 35mm 1.4, and my D850 thinks both lenses are the same.  The Tamron 35mm doesn't really need any fine tuning, so it's rear-focusing because the D850 thinks it's the Sigma 85mm and applying the +20 fine tuning. The D850 won't let me create a new AF fine tune profile for the 35mm because it thinks it's the 85mm which already has a profile.  I deleted the...

When I import photos from my Nikon Z6, they come into Lightroom with 1/3rd stop of "exposure" increase. I see this when I open the photos in the LR "Develop" workspace, where the exposure slider is already at +.33. I don't see this with photos imported from my D850. I can't find a setting in the Z6 that would account for this. Can someone explain it?
