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.

Happy New Year Nikonians! My most recent post was a question regarding "stacking" to which I received nil, none and zilch response. I have figured it out now but not yet put the process into use. Went off the rails a little before Xmas and went looking at "digiscoping" as another aspect of this great hobby. Now there is a way of disposing of your income!...I'll check back later...Mulgabill

I use a D300 and I'm about to buy a new Nikkor 18-200mm lens. Does anyone have comments about the lens?
Comment by Neal Jorgensen on November 22, 2008 at 5:19am
I am planning to buy a D80 with the intent of doing wildlife pictures. Because I don't have a lot to spend, I am thinking of buying The body, and a18-200/3.5-5.6 DX. I would like to have some feedback on my choice, and answer a question . Will it accept a tele-extender?
Comment by Ernie824 on November 21, 2008 at 2:17pm
