Question

Issue with rapid scroll while in playback zoom

Hi all!

So I was wondering if any of you observed this on their d7100 while viewing a photo in playback zoom.

Once I zoom in, and then keep the multiselector pressed to rapidly scroll to other areas of the photo, the navigation window goes two-three steps, then stops.

I have Ver.1.02 firmware if it helps.

Thanks!

The AF 300 f/2.8 ED-IF Lens is not listed as compatible with Nikon's current line of teleconverters.

The AF-S 80-200mm f/2.8mm lens is not compatible with the TC-14EII or the TC14-EIII. However the TC-17EII, TC-20EII, and TC20EIII can be used with this lens.

With the D7100's Selective Color Effect, all colors other than the selected color(s) are recorded in black & white. Selective Color can be enabled as a Special Effect that is applied when the photo is taken, or can be applied to existing photos using the Retouch Menu. Instructions on enabling Selective Color as a Special Effect while taking pictures please see pages 182-183 of the D7100 Reference Manual. Information on applying Selective Color to existing photos can be found on page 288-289 of the D7100 Reference Manual.

Never heard of a "3" error code. Is it -E-, that means there is no memory card inserted. The camera must have a memory card inserted and it is not included.

If the camera is turned off with a charged EN-EL15 battery and no memory card is inserted an [-E-] will be displayed in the control panel and in the viewfinder. Once a memory card is inserted into the camera, the [-E-] will disappear. This information can be found on page 30 of the User's Manual: http://download3.nikonimglib.com/ar...

Question

Is the D7100 a good option for a beginning dslr?

I currently have the Nikon Coolpix L820 and have outgrown it's uses. I've been looking to buy my first dslr camera, and have been researching vigorously.
I was first looking to buy the Nikon D3300, but realized there where quite a few similarities to it and my current camera, and I'm afraid to spend the money and not have it be a significant step up from my point-and-shoot. I then found the D7100. I very much love what I've read, but I don't want to buy it and be waay out of my reach of understanding, but I definitely want one where I can grow into--and not out of for a while.
What should I do? Any suggestions? I love Nikon and want to get a Nikon dslr, but struggling to decide which one.

Question

Which zoom lens to have?

Which Lens is better for daily photography for my D7100? in comparison of sharpness.

1. AF-S FX NIKKOR 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5G ED VR
or
2. AF-S FX NIKKOR 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR

You may curious why I am onto FX rather then DX lens, this is because I am collection all FX lens cause I have a plane to buy FX body later. I am a Hobbyist. i don't mind DX/FX differences.

Any suggest which one is better in sharpness quality.

Thanks.

Many Thank you Chelsea. Very Understandable Explanation. Simple and Direct answer. I have decided to go for 28-300mm.
After I have this lens, next decision need to make which Nikkor Micro lens to have. 60mm or 105mm. I will query on this lens later, on a new thread in this nice Nikon forum.

Thank you again.

The AF-S NIKKOR 24–85mm f/3.5-4.5G ED VR covers wide-angle and medium telephoto perspectives, making it a great multipurpose lens for photography and HD video recording. At its widest focal length (24mm on FX-format D-SLRs, 36mm on DX-format D-SLRs) it's ideal for travel, landscapes, interiors, group shots and more. At its longest focal length (85mm on FX-format D-SLRs, 136.5mm on DX-format D-SLRs), it's ideal for close-ups, portraits, interviews and more. A powerful zoom lens optimized for FX-format cameras, the AF-S NIKKOR 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR offers outstanding sharpness for a broad zoom range while maintaining an f/5.6 aperture at the telephoto end. Nikon VR (Vibration Reduction) image stabilization provides 3.5 stops* of blur free handheld shooting, assuring dramatically sharper still images. Both MTF charts can be found on the product pages of these lenses as well as sample images from the lenses.

The D7100's 24.1-megapixel DX-format CMOS sensor without using an optical low pass filter (OLPF), resulting in the purest, sharpest images using D7100's DX-format CMOS sensor. Combine that with fantastic ISO performance at both ends of the spectrum—down to ISO 100 and up to ISO 6400—the processing speed and intelligence of EXPEED 3 and the extra lens reach of a 1.3x crop factor, and the D7100 is the ultimate tool for those seeking a lightweight DX-format HD-SLR. The D600 has been archieved. For an FX option, the D610 or D750 would be great choices as well for astronomy photography. D610's 24.3 megapixel FX-format CMOS sensor, wide dynamic range and high S/N (signal-to-noise) ratio captures every detail with lifelike sharpness and low noise throughout its wide ISO range. Low-light performance is synonymous with Nikon—shoot crystal clear images from ISO 100 to 6400, expandable down to 50 and up to 25,600 for extreme situations. EXPEED 3 processing system manages all that data with remarkable speed and accuracy, enabling up to 6 fps continuous shooting at full resolution in both FX and DX formats.
