#52687 Looking for a versatile lens!

Posted by Russ on 27 November 2017 - 05:11 PM

Sigma 17-70 or Nikon 16-80 (both f2.8-4 I think), both offer wider and longer focal lengths. The Sigma focuses really really close too, so good for sort-of semi-macro shots.

Something I wouldn't mind trying too, especially when there is mud flying.

I know nothing about the 18-140, but the Sigma 18-35 gets rave reviews, with things said such as it is of prime lens quality.

Cheers Darryl. Coming from the D300s I just use the centre-point and d25 (the old d9). I read about these other modes working but am too scared to try them for real!

#50205 Waterproof covers for D700 & D300

Posted by Russ on 31 July 2017 - 06:09 PM

I use ThinkTank rain covers - excellent.

And I like their eyepieces so leave them on full time.

#50040 Help! I don't know why my d3400 is doing this!

Have you tried reformatting the card, or maybe it's just full.

#49077 D750 secondary slot burning up my SD card

I have not experienced that problem with my 750, sounds rare.

Me too. Definitely needs professional fixing methinks.

Thanks guys.


TB - I find it easier than soccer as the ball is held onto for longer, just stay in front of the ball and you can't miss!

#48666 What is the best compact camera with RAW?

Posted by Russ on 23 May 2017 - 05:48 PM

I'm probably going to get a Canon G7X II.

#48665 Grainy, blurry, sometimes perfect.

Donk - the cars in the background are in focus, therefore you've focussed on the wrong thing.

If I had a 7200 I wouldn't bother with the 7500 for sure.

BlackRapid RS-7. Can go all day with a heavy combo such as a 70-200/f2.8 or the 120-300/f2.8. Magic.
