you are saying the the 1.8g will have a sharper image than the 1.4 ais?

I am going for the most detail possible so if the G gives me that ill buy the G. 

 

 

I prefer 50 f/1.4G over 50 f/1.2AIS, never tried the 1.8G version but I heard very good things.  As for portraits, you better off by getting the 85 f/1.8G, it gives you more working distance from the model.

 

The 85 f/1.8G is so sharp it is recommended to use with D800E instead of the f/1.4G version.

I might start with the 50mm f1.8g and then get the 85mm f1.8g later on. 

 

I will be making drawings and paintings from the images, just faces so i

dont need to get back that far. I will be controlling the light as well. 

Eventually i will do full body portraits and i assume thats where the 85mm

will come in handy 

 

Just on other thing, I was wondering about the difference in image quality 

between the D5200 and higher models like the 600's/800's and 3's. 

If the light is controlled and the lenses are right is there a noticeable 

difference between sharpness and detail? Sorry if these questions

are regurgitated.  

 

Thanks for helping me out.

Sharpness probably isn't going to be an issue for your purposes. All of those cameras have oodles of resolution. For head and shoulders photography, the 85mm is ideal. It allows you to be tight in on the subject without hovering too close to them and invading their space.

I find for full frame I like the 135mm for head and shoulder shots , I use the zeiss 135 f2  but its manual focus .

for crop camera the 85 or 105mm lenses work well .

Hi all,

 

Photo noob here! I got the Nikon D7100 bundle from Costco. I was looking for an upgrade to our little Sony Cybershot. I have 2 young children, so my wife and I wanted to take "quality" pictures of them growing up. After reading review after review, I was down to the upper scale models of Nikon and Canon. (No photography experience) I was sold at Costco. Great price, customer service and return policy goes miles for me.

 

First of all, we LOVE the amazing pictures we have taken so far! Albeit, on auto... What are some good tips for a beginner? Is there a good, down to earth website or forum?

I have a D7000, and I keep a copy of Ken Rockwell's D7000 Guide App on my iPhone for reference. He has a good set of recommended settings for using the auto functions well and he explains when you might want to use a different setting.

For anyone interested. I am upgrading to the D610 and need to sell my Nikon D7000 and 16-85 Nikon DX lens. if anyone is interested I'm selling them in mint condition for 850.00 together. Shutter count is 3835 so its lightly used.  D7000 550.00 and the DX 16-85 Lens for 385.00. Priced to sell quickly.   I will be posting these on ebay shortly so if anyone knows someone looking for an excellent deal. i need to recover some of the money for my D610/24-70 purchase and I have a D7100 also that I am keeping.

Some pics I took today on the D5200. I might bring a tripod tomorrow and try leaving the shutter open longer and have everything in focus.
