comment what lense would be perfect and have 2.8f in low range
I honestly can't work out what you're asking here.

comment Recommended focal length for a fashion shoot
But please search the site first to see if your question has already been asked; four of the questions you've asked already have answers on this site.

comment Nikon 50mm 1.8g vs 1.8d?
Please slow down with the posting and read the help center - I suspect a lot of your questions are going to be closed one way or the other right now.

comment How much zoom does a lens need to have before we call it a superzoom lens?
@ths I think the first sentence does answer the question: there is no such definition.

comment Camera choice opinions wanted
Without wanting to seem harsh: what makes you believe the lack of sharpness is a result of the equipment rather than the photographer?

comment Camera choice opinions wanted
Both product recommendations and opinions are off-topic here. However, as a freebie: you haven't explained anything about how your current gear is holding you back, so the simple answer is "buy nothing".

It's a start, but this still needs some editing.

comment Significance of shutter speed?
"no shutter speed is any more or any less important than any other shutter speed." This isn't entirely true - the flash sync speed is pretty significant, and the fastest shutter speed your camera can manage can potentially be interesting (although the latter is almost always "faster than you ever really need").

comment What is the performance of a mirrorless system camera compared to DSLR in dim light?
While that question is about APS-C vs full-frame, almost exactly the same things apply to 4/3s vs full-frame - although you may want to be more specific in your question as full frame mirrorless cameras like the Sony A7 exist.

comment Can I photograph a solar eclipse using a 10-stop Big Stopper (+ extra ND?)
I strongly suspect the person you were talking to was confused between transmission and stops. 14 stops = a reduction in light of 2^14 = 16384 times. 100,000 stops = a reduction in light of 2^100,000 = 10 ^ (100,000 / (ln(10) / ln(2))) = 10 ^ 30102 = as you say, a brick in front of the lens. (This is the same way that a "1000 ND filter" is actually 10 stops, because 2 ^ 10 = 1024).

comment How can I target a specific size in megabytes when saving a JPEG in Photoshop?
-1 for "JPEG file size is a meaningless measure." If I'm shoving it out over a mobile or other low bandwidth network it's incredibly relevant.

At least according to my quick test, Paint uses the lossless LZW compression algorithm when saving TIFFs so it looks OK.
