    Nikon 35mm Ai f/2

    I find 35mm to be a very versatile FL for shooters looking to achieve many things. I do a lot of hiking, & this beautiful little lens is usually invited. jt

    Nikon D600 in 2020?

    I've been pondering starting to save towards adding a full frame Nikon DSLR to my ensemble. So I started looking at lower end ones. These prices are all a KEH but seem representative: D750 - $1000 D610 - $750 D600 - $500 Now $500 is significantly easier to save for in a world of surprise...

    Nikon F6 R.I.P.

    From Michael Johnston at The Online Photographer Blog: The Online Photographer: The Nikon F, 1959-2020 ( And so it goes. Perhaps I should look for another film F again? I've always wanted a F4.

    Nikon 100mm F2.8E

    A nice compact 100mm F2.8 lens that was designed to be a value option. Wasn't allowed to carry the Nikkor name with its plasticky build. Which actually translates well to this modern mirrorless age being lighter and cheaper. My copy is sharp but needs a few stops for out of camera contrast. It...

    Nikon His and Hers French Press (D300 @ iso6400)

    This is the first image I’ve ever shot at iso 6400 using my D300, preferring to use it as close to base iso if possible. Though newer sensors produce next to no noise/grain I am impressed with this result and think that with careful choice of subject the results are acceptable. This is...

    Nikon Severity of this Df viewfinder issue?

    So my preowned Df seems pretty alright in all aspects but there appears to be a misaligned component in the viewfinder. (Picture material taken from the user manual so their copyright.) This is how it's supposed to be. This line on the bottom is what I see when I look through the VF...

    Nikon Shift happens in SLR world too

    So out of curiosity I read a couple of Nikkor lens reviews. Focus shift was mentioned. What's the exact way one is supposed to go about it shooting a (D)SLR? After all, focus happens wide open and then it closes for exposing. Does one just hold the aperture preview button while...

    Nikon Spots?
