    Nikon 20/24mm D primes on D750?

    I currently have D750 + 58mm combo which I am very happy with (who can't be?) While searching for cheap ($300-$400) wide angle prime for occasional indoor/people group and some landscape type needs I came across Nikon 20/24 D primes which seems to have very good ratings from B&H customers...

    Showcase Nikon 58mm f/1.4 G AF-S - Part I

    I found first copy to be very soft even after AF fine tune. Coupled with buyers remorse for spending so much for ~50mm I returned it. But ended getting it again and pretty happy with the copy I have.

    Showcase Nikon 58mm f/1.4 G AF-S - Part I

    I have been watching this thread for a while turned out very costly thread! :) I just received this lens and looks like it requires fine tuning. +18 seems to sharpest but not sure if this is best I should be getting from this lens. This is 100% crop do you thinks this is sharp enough to keep...

    Apple Cloud Issue.

    I don't agree with article. ICloud Drive option comes when you upgrade the OS. It's very possible that said users accepted the option without understanding and now blaming it on Apple. There is no way OSX is copying entire Apple data on cloud unless you are storing it on iCloud Drive You also...

    Upgrade the old Mac Pro or get a new Mini?

    I had same feeling when I wanted to upgrade my old macbook pro. I was really pissed off by no user upgrade for macbook pro series so I seriously considered and even tried high end Windows Laptops viz Dell Precision/Thinkpad W series. As good as they are, I am so used to trouble free mac...

    Upgrade the old Mac Pro or get a new Mini?

    Instead of going for new mac mini, you may want to check earlier version which comes with Quad Core process

    If you found a bag of money and could buy any body...

    With D750 I have the body I need, so I would instead use money to buy my dream lenses :D

    Replacing heavy gear with mirrorless?

    Except for m43, problem I have with APSC (Sony n Fuji) and FF (Sony) mirror-less is lens size. Beyond primes less than 50-60mm, their fast lenses are as big as Canikons. Check out sizes of Fujis 2.8 zooms or Sony's 70-20oF4. Agree those are lighter but that also could mean durability in long...

    Replacing heavy gear with mirrorless?

    Randy, I have used 56/1.2 and no doubt its a great lens and technically better than 1.8. And I also agree DSLR with mirror days are numbered, what I am saying is that day is not today, its couple of years away. After trying all mirror-less I decided to stick with Nikon. I believe Nikon will...

    Replacing heavy gear with mirrorless?

    Okay, first I am not saying mirrorless are not good but their development cycle is too fast and they are asking too much money for what they are offering in return. Having said that I agree we are at tipping point, in a generation or two mirrorless will match or surpass DSLRs for most of...

    Replacing heavy gear with mirrorless?

    I am not taking current Fuji pronation as Nikon also runs similar promotions and you will have to take their promo costs as well. So taking normals prices D750: 2399 50mm: 216 35mm; 599 85mm: 499 Total: $3713 Fuji: $1299 35mm: $599 23mm: $799 56mm:$999 Total: $3696 In return you get one of...

    Nikon D750 RIGHT AF issue?

    Aha...Not again! Nikon seem to have improved a lot from DF onward. Agree there was minor issue with 810 but unlike past, Nikon was prompt enough to accept and provide fix. I am hoping or may I say believe that Nikon has addressed its QA issues

    Critique Great Smoky Mountains...and surrounding area

    These are amazing! Just last fall I was at smokey and its a wonderful place for photography. I hope you visited some of waterfalls treks there Too sad I wasted entire trip as I had just got camera 2 days before and by mistake put Variable ND on a one lens for entire day time shooting.

    Replacing heavy gear with mirrorless?

    Interesting. I am on reverse journey. After trying out all mirror-less from Sony, fuij to Olympus I concluded that its not worth cutting weight and size loss specially if you also account $ for return value. After long mirrorless stint I am just returning back to Nikon with D750, 35/50/85 G...

    This or That DF vs. D700

    Agree, purely based on pixels etc 24/36 specially with Sony Sensor image quality is probably better than Canon. Believe me I was VERY tempted by D800/E but as per my honest self appraisal, that's too much camera for me. And continuing honesty ;) for my needs any FF would have been more than...

    This or That DF vs. D700

    Thank you all, your feedback have been very valuable and it helped me to make a decision. As I started looking for D600/610 too I came across Canon Direct Loyalty Program and current 20% Off discount on refurb. Finally considering all the factors I ended up cancelling Nikon lens orders and went...

    This or That DF vs. D700

    I am a hobbyist (including a hobby of trying new gear here and there) and very much zeroed on Nikon FX. Where I am struggling is to decide between D700 vs DF. My primary interest is people (trying to do FPJ) and currently have 18-35G, 50/1.4G and 85/1.8G. I am looking for a camera which I can...

    24/2.8, 35/2, 85/1.8 Ds how good/bad they would be on Df?

    James thanks for the reply. I am not saying these lenses are or will hold me back, just trying to get some feedback before purchase :-). Zeiss is beyond my budget

    24/2.8, 35/2, 85/1.8 Ds how good/bad they would be on Df?

    Santa gave me Nikon Df and took all my other cameras. So I am trying to build a compact prime kit between 24 and 85mm and considering D versions of 24/2.8, 35/2, 85/1.8 lenses. I checked some reviews online and in forums and found feedback to be mixed. So would like to know how good/bad these...

    Review Coolpix A: Rolling first impressions

    Just curious if anyone else bought/got their Coolpix A. I bought it just now from local bestbuy and did not find any threads in any forum about this little guy. So thought of starting one myself :) I was looking for a compact to accompany D7100 and was thinking of X100x, RX100/V1, X20 and GRD...

    My daughter wants to learn photography

    If weight is not a concern D200. If weight is the concern you may also want to consider D50 over D40. This will enable her to use primes like 50mms without spending much. I had seen Nikon Refurb D40/D50s on Adorama.

    D50 vs mirrorless?

    I think Nikon know value of its little jewel. Adorama is selling D50 and D40 refurbs (by Nikon) for $400 much more than latest D3000. I am so tempted to pick that one :)

    Need advice...

    I am also in the same boat and deciding which one to pick. Based on what I have read, 85mm give much better focusing distance (around 10 inches I think) and is super sharp.

    Make sens getting D80?

    I received a D3100 as a gift. But I have not used it till date, thinking I should get at least D80 so I could use all the lenses. I saw Adorama is selling a refurb D80, before I pull the trigger, wanted a feedback if it still worth buying D80. I know D90 is much better camera but it beyond my...

    What should I get first?

    If you want to move to FF, it make sense buying D700. I would not wait for D800.

    do you trust Auto WB?

    I mostly shoot in AWB and adjust in LR if necessary. Not sure that's the best way though

    Should I keep my film cameras?

    I think it depends on what you get for. If the resell price is like peanuts, it may make sense to just keep it.

    'Olympus Answer To Canon's S95'

    From the spec, it really looks cool. If Oly could get same 4/3 colors in compact and has all amature functinos (PSAM, RAW etc), it could be best camera of the year,
