Tokina AT-X 840 AF D 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6 review

The Tokina AT-X 840 AF D 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6 lens is designed for Full Frame DSLR cameras, but can also be used on APS-C DSLR’s that have an internal motor drive in the cameras body like the Nikon D7000 series and the Canon DLSR’s that have an internal motor drive where the "Field of View" on this lens will be equivalent to about a 120-600mm lens.

The Tokina AT-X 840 AF D 80-400mm is a budget priced zoom lens that I've been using it for three months now. Read this review on my thoughts on the pros and cons of this lens.

Haida 6, 10 and 15stop 100mm ND Filters review

Haida filters have been on the market for quite a few years now and the quality of their filters have greatly improved and are now on par with other leading filter manufacturers, and in the last two years I have been replacing my Neutral Density (ND) and Neutral Density Graduated (ND) filters with Haida filters as I’ve found them to be of exceptional value.

In this review, I will be sharing my thoughts on the quality of the Haida 6, 10 and 15stop 100mm ND filters, as these are the ND filters that I’ve been using to capture my landscape images for quite some time now and have found them to be of a very high quality.

Tokina AT-X 11-20mm f/2.8 Pro DX lens

The Tokina AT-X 11-20mm f/2.8 Pro DX lens is designed for crop-sensored DSLR cameras, and is well suited for photographers who like capturing wide angle day-time landscapes and those, who like me spend many cold winter nights capturing images of the Milky Way (Astrophotographers).

The Tokina AT-X 11-20mm f/2.8 Pro is the latest lens released by Tokina and is rated as one of the best ultra-wide angle lens (www.dxomark.com) on the market for crop-sensored DSLR cameras. It supersedes the Tokina AT-X 11-16mm f/2.8 Pro DX ll lens which is also a very good ultra-wide angle lens, but isn’t as sharp as the Tokina 11-20mm lens.

Nikon D7500 DSLR review

The Nikon D7500 is the newest addition in Nikon's prosumer DX-format DSLR cameras, and fits in between the D7200 and the D500. The D7500 has many of the features found on the D500, but at a more affordable price point.

According to Nikon the D7500 doesn’t replace the D7200 and slots in above it, but below the D500. So why buy the D7200 when the D7500 is such a better camera, and offers so much more than the D7200 in terms of image quality, faster frame rate and high ISO performance?
