    Nikon Z6 and Z7 mirrorless

    Well, I haven't used the f2.8 version, but the f4 'kit' lens is, imo, superb. Really sharp, less distortion than you might expect, and nice and compact. Makes for a small, light little combo for travelling about with. Personally, I wouldn't pay the extra for the f2.8. For a 24-70mm range, IBIS...

    Nikon F3HP - best SLR of all time?

    This annoyed me so much . Batteries would cost loads, like a tenner or more! Then last just a few rolls, it seemed. One reason I preferred the Nikon SLRs of the 90s, was that the good ones at least, mostly took AA batteries, rather than expensive and sometimes hard to find lithium etc ones. I...

    Nikon Z6 and Z7 mirrorless

    It's an uncertain time for retailers. Stock just sitting there, doesn't pay the bills. Flash sales for certain items, helps stimulate interest and traffic, and hopefully sales. Losing a few quid on some stuff, but hopefully selling other stuff as well, so that a turnover is maintained. Z6 + 4-70...

    Nikon Z6 and Z7 mirrorless

    No that's a goodun, that. Just that tiny bit of highlight on the train carriage door, really gives it some context. Nice.

    London Self Isolating

    Went out on Sunday, on the bikes. Parts of the West End were like a ghost town. Haven't seen Central London so quiet on a Sunday, since the 1980s, when shops didn't open on Sundays. The only shops that did seem to be open, bizarrely, were Primark and some posh watch shops. Strange combo. Can't...

    Camera collectors; fave cameras- what's in your 'museum'?

    No it doesn't! :LOL: I had a Canon strap lying around, so I bought an EOS 1 and 50mm f1.4 lens, to go on it. :thinking: Don't. I really, really, really must not get into buying Leicas. I put a bid in on an old IIIc the other day, then forgot to check back. It sold for even less than what I...

    Camera collectors; fave cameras- what's in your 'museum'?

    You don't HAVE to buy anything (Says he who's just bought a waist level finder for his Nikon F4...)! But I know; I've spent far too much over the last year, on stuff I absolutely don't 'need', and it can get out of control. I need to build a display cabinet, and then limit myself to the space it...

    The virus. PPE

    EDITED You know what? I can't be bothered with this **** any more. Easier to just ignore this thread.

    The virus. PPE

    Do you have 100% proof of this? No; you don’t. Here, is the difference between FACT and OPINON. Unsubstantiated opinions are what creates fear and hatred. ’Almost certainly’. Let’s wait until it is 100% proven then, eh? So far, this claim is unsubstantiated by actual science and scientists...

    The virus. PPE

    Seeing as how not even the scientists (from all over the globe) have definitively identified the actual source of the initial outbreak, I’d hardly say the Chinese government are ‘in denial’ about it. You comments say more about your own paranoia and ignorance than anything else. And what...

    Nikon Z6 and Z7 mirrorless

    Every now and then, there are 'seasonal' discounts. Loads of Nikon cameras and lenses were selling at discounted prices in January; I got my 50mm f1.8 Z lens for £349; it's now £529. This seems to be a 'flash 4 day sale'. It will stimulate interest and generate a sudden surge of income at a time...

    The virus. PPE

    How do 'we' know this? Because 'they' tell us? How is SK any more trustworthy than China? What about the USA? Their government lies all the time. So does ours. Our government lied about WMDs in Iraq, and over a million people have been killed in conflict across the Middle East. Etc, etc, etc...

    MPB - Very Poor

    Bought a few lenses off MPB,and they've been good each time, except for a 70-200mm Nikon lens I bought; the one I 'bought' was described as 'near mint', but the one I actually received was nowhere near that. In fairness, they did sort it out and exchange it for me, for one that was 'near mint'...

    Beginner Lens confusion - DX or not DX

    With Nikon, you can override the DX crop with DX lenses, to use the whole of the frame with a DX lens on an FX F-mount body. I used a Tokina 11-20mm zoom on FX, and whilst the image circle diameter was insufficient to cover the whole frame at the wider end, by 16mm, it covered the whole frame...

    Nikon D600 / D610 Official Users thread - Anything D6x0 related

    I bought a D600 in 2013, to replace the 'starter' D200 I'd bought s/h a few months previously. It's been an amazing camera for all these years. I bought the Z6 for a smaller, lighter option, but the D600 is still just as capable in most situations, other than very low light, where the Z6 has the...
