Nikon Users Group

For people who own Nikon cameras and lenses. It doesn't matter if it's SLR or point and shoot. This group is for discussion on your experiences with having a Nikon camera.

Nikon has been renowned for high-quality optics and camera equipment since they were founded in 1919. The history of Nikon cameras began in 1948, the year that the Nikon I, the company's first camera was released. Today Nikon continues that legacy with an outstanding line of digital SLR (single lens reflex) cameras including the D90, D300, D800, D3 and the new D3x.

This group is a place for users of all Nikon digital SLR and point-and-shoot cameras to share their experiences, demonstrate techniques through example, and discuss Nikon's latest offerings.

Thank you Mike for the reply to my Question. And I will take your opinion no board.  

Comment by Mike Kidwell on August 8, 2013 at 12:02am

Warren Causer I use the Yongnuo  YN-560 II with my D90 and I love it. I have used the SB-600 and don't see any real differences. for the money you can't beat it. :) This is just my opinion

Comment by Warren Causer on August 7, 2013 at 12:48am

I`m thinking of buying a flash and just wondering if a yongnuo  yn-560III will work with my nikon d 60 . As I do not have much money to this is a cheaper way to go for me at this time

Comment by John Gregory on July 29, 2013 at 4:10am

Hi Paul Shanley, Paul in relation to your comments with the Nikkor 28mm f2.8- do you find this is one of the better lenses for Landscape photography - for sharpness

How much did you pay for it Paul.

Cheers John Gregory

Thanks for your suggestions!!

Comment by Fred on July 29, 2013 at 1:43am

Nikon made three lenses in that range, 20mm, 24mm (I think) and 28mm. I have both the 20mm and 28mm f/2.8 AIs and they are great for landscapes and for walking around a city centre. They are well worth the cheap price you will pay for them.

Comment by Paul Shanley on July 28, 2013 at 8:10am

Landscapes do not require autofocus. Get outstanding quality cheap get the Nikkor Ai(s). I recomend the Nikkor 28mm f 2.8 Ai(s). Available used at many outlets can get new only at B&H photo. Without autofocus this lens is a breeze to focus.

Comment by jas saj on July 28, 2013 at 7:40am

Hi everyone.  I have a Nikon D3100 and started looking for another lense.  Mainly I like landscapes.  Can anyone help me sort out which to buy???
