    Nikon Tamron 70-200mm f2.8 G2 on Nikon Z6

    This is a follow-on thread to my comments in my telephoto for Nikon Z thread. I'll be discussing and showing focus performance in various scenarios using the Tamron 70-200 f2.8 G2 on an FTZ with a Nikon Z6. The first set I'll show is my son walking really slowly towards me as he's looking at...

    Nikon Budget Telephoto options for my Nikon Z kit

    I'm pretty new to the Nikon ecosystem, so here's some back story. I jumped in with a Z6 + Z24-70 f4 S + Z40 f2 + 70-300 AF-P + Tamron 70-200 f2.8 G2 (all second hand except the 40). I sold off all my Olympus PRO stuff to offset the cost, keeping EM 1.1, P 25f1.7, O 45 f1.8 & 40-150 f4-5.6...

    Nikon Nikon Telephoto AF Micro Nikkor 105mm F/2.8 D?

    Obviously this lens is optimised for Macro shooting but how good is it as a regular short tele? I'm thinking of adding a couple of more AF D lenses to my Nikon collection and while some (35/2, 50/1.4) are obvious, this length is not so much. I'd be using it on both my N90s & D7100. Thanks!

    FujiXWeekly Recipe Agfacolor Fade - supposed to resemble a faded color look from, the 1930's. I think I may be able to tweak this a little and get something close to a Kodachrome 25 film simulation. Not sure that I would use this simulation a lot for general shooting. Picture Control...

    Nikon Voigtlander Mirrorless Lenses for Z Mount

    As I’ve said before, there’s probably no such thing as a “bad” Voigt lens so I’m sticking this up here for any Z Mount owners here. As someone who only wants smaller lenses for the rangefinder, I’m thinking the Lanthar lenses might be better suited for me on the Z mount. Shame that the, by all...

    Hi everyone, I just formatted my D7500, and I've set the camera up with back button auto/focus using the AEL/lock button. I have one more issue. When I press the shutter it's trying auto /focus as well. And it undermines the purpose of using the ael button. Does anyone have some insight into...

    Nikon D600?

    So I have a line on a D600 fx body for $400. Cosmetics a bit rough but it has had the Nikon service for the shutter and about 5000 clocks since. I'd have to come up with the money and I do already have a nice D7100. OTOH it's a 24 mp fx body. Tempting. Yea or Nay?

    Thought maybe, just maybe I could replace my Z5 and Z50 with a Z7. Nope. Just can't see any appreciable difference for my needs, especially for the difference in $$$. I'm sure glad I didn't buy one to find out I didn't really need it!

    Hi I tried my hand at panorama and a tripod. An 18-55mm lens, my question is why are the pictures curved? I've heard of lens curvature. Is it because I was too close? Cans some some software straighten it? And where would I find it in lightroom cc Yes it took multiple shots (15) or so...
