    As there doesn't seem to be a dedicated thread I thought i would start one for anyone that wants to post D3300/3400/5500/5600 photos and discuss related material :)

    I have the Fuji XT20 but still enjoy shooting with the D3300 so please feel free to post ,

    I have a d500 but also have the 70-300 af-p. I agree with you about the lens, for the money it takes nice, sharp images.

    Hi Peter
    yes I'm pleased with it and its quick to focus on the D3300 so on your D500 should be even better

    The grandkids came to visit the other day, I got the D3300 and kit lens out. Some lovely photos with lovely colour tones. I really should have had the 35mm lens on, but the kit lens was already on the body.

    Must admit, I had mine on very high ISO the other day. Something that I sometimes forget to check :).

    I was just looking at some of my images, that I accidently shot at high ISO and they are still pretty good. While they may not have as good tones etc that could have been gotten at much lower ISO, at least the images have not fallen apart.

    After holding a sony a6000 yesterday, I have come to the realisation that my hands are just too big. While I was there I had checked out how comfortable the d5300 was too, and it was a perfect fit for my hands, so I looked into it. It's definitely the camera I want to get after I have recovered from festival expenses.
    As it doesn't have an AF motor, I wanted to ask what zoom lenses that go upto 300mm or above have AF motors. Prefer not to spend much more the £150 and the cheaper the better to begin with as long as they have the AF motor and stabilisation.

    Picked up a D5500 to compliment my D600. Took it to Bergen at the weekend with the 18-55 kit lens as I had my 2 year old with me and didn't want to carry heavy kit about. Hugely impressed with it, Live View AF has really come along and it was a joy to use. Haven't used a kit lens for about 12 years but again very pleased with how it went...

    Are these nikons own lenses? Any idea on prices?
    I don't know what the letters in the lens names mean, what signifies AF lenses, and what signifies IS lenses?

    ok AF is for full frame but work oak on DX bodies
    the 70-300 comes in both AF and DX
    the newer 70-300 AFP lens is very good but only works on certain nikon bodies.by the way these are all Nikon lenses I'm referring to,Tamron do a Good 70-300 for DX
    these all have VR
    also the 55-300 and 55-200 also come in Vr version ,the older 55-200 didn't and also had VR1 version, I have had the 70-300 FP which was excellent ,i now have a 55-200 VRii which is v good.
    of the 2 i think i would go for the AFP 70-300 if it works on your body.

    The new AF-P lenses at the low end of the consumer DX lineup use a very different approach to focus motors. The AF-P lenses have stepper motors in them that are unlike the previous AF-S lens motors, which use a piezoelectric or ultrasonic wave motor. The good news is that these new stepper motors are fast and quiet. The bad news is that only a few cameras are compatible with them (see near end of this section).

    Rather expensive way of getting an 85mm equivalent on DX, but wow, what a lens the 58mm 1.4 is (I'm renting it)...

    Now got myself a D5200 for an absolute bargain good as new with 18-55 kit and 50mm 1.8g lens.
    Really appreciate the level of control for such a good value camera.
    Getting a 70-300mm today, think I got one that doesn't have compatible AF though, can't complain as it was only £60 on MPB.

    I'm stunned there are like near 800 pages for the d750 and one 1 for the whole 3 and 5 series combined.
